Esthee Posted January 28, 2009 Report Share Posted January 28, 2009 Hi everyone,I'm thinking about going to Melbourne on a student visa which would allow me to work for 20 hours a week. I would like to know how difficult or easy it is to get a part time job in Melbourne at the moment? According to the information that the University sent me, it would be quite easy to get casual work in a store for $20 an hour. Is that a true reflection of the current market or not really? I will need to work part time to pay my $500 a week living costs. Will I be able to do this or is this unrealistic? I'm going to study towards a masters degree and am qualified, so I'm thinking of looking for contract work, but will have to rely on casual work until I can get a contract. This will probably be the deciding factor when deciding if I should go now or wait for our 175 to come through. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
