About Tax? In order to work in Australia, international students need to get a Tax File Number (TFN). Students who wish to work during their studies in Australia should first visit the Australian Taxation Office to get their TFN.
Type of Visas
The Temporary Graduate visa (subclass 485) allows graduates to work in Australia temporarily after they finish their studies. It has two streams: the Graduate Work stream and the Post-Study Workstream.
The Graduate Work stream is for international students who graduate with skills and qualifications that relate to an occupation considered in demand in the Australian labor market, as indicated in the Skilled Occupation List (SOL). A visa in this stream is generally granted for 18 months.
The Post-Study Work stream offers extended options for working in Australia to eligible graduates of a higher education degree. Under this stream, successful applicants are granted a visa with a visa period of two, three, or four years’ duration, depending on the highest educational qualification they have obtained.
How to find a job?
Your university will offer a range of career support services to students, including some for international students such as yourself. They will be able to help you with your job search, resume, and applications. You should also be able to attend workshops that focus on skills that will help you to improve your employability, such as interview and communication skills. Your university may also offer special career events, such as expos or lectures where you can hear from employers in your area of study.
Keeping in touch with your classmates and instructors may be vital in finding a job, especially if they have connections to a particular employer and can recommend you. This way you will be more likely to hear about employment opportunities and receive advice about working in your field. A good way to start networking is to join clubs and societies on campus that are related to your field; this will also help you to gain valuable skills such as effective communication, teamwork, and accountability.
