Take a Year Off


“You must take a year off, one of these days, before you’re old and tired and weighed down by responsibility. Go away somewhere, and read. Read all the important books. Educate yourself, then you’ll see the world in a different way.”

— Helon Habila


Find a Job


Looking for a job, go to Find a Job section to find more information. Be careful and vigilant during the job search. Stay away from unscrupulous employers who want to fool you.

Who is easy prey for unscrupulous employers?

  • Students
  • Young people
  • International students
  • Backpackers and travellers
  • Unemployed young people without working experience

Never pay money to scammers who promise an easy way to make money.

  • Scammers always ask people to pay for collecting any documents, creating portfolios or training materials.
  • They promise you an easy way to make money but then disappear.
  • They do not have official documents authorizing the provision of services.
  • Scammers do not invite you to an interview and are not interested in your work experience.
  • Scammers earn money from gullible young people who want to get money quickly and without effort.

What can I do to avoid unscrupulous employers?

  • Ask advice on someone you trust.
  • Do online research about employers, companies, and look at their social networks.
  • Never give scammers the details of your bank account or driver's license.
  • Avoid commission-based pay for jobs, if you do not want to work for a long time without a salary.
  • If your employer violates your rights, tries to cheat or mislead, contact Fair Work to resolve this issue.
