Been following this blog for very long na but didn't make any account I'm more of a reader type for forums hehe. I arrived in Melbourne 6 weeks ago and having financial problems. Although hindi lng ako of course but I just wanna ask advices from students on how to get through this situation.
I have been applying for jobs ever since I arrived. Most probably hundreds na online then handed out resumes personally too. I had a few trials for a foodcourt and a few restaurants but it didn't seem to work out at all kasi they didn't call me back. I don't have any experiences at all din naman in the hospitality industry to be honest cuz I was mostly in the admin/acctg industry. I applied corporate jobs but of course, I never got a call back. The closest one was Robert Half called me about an opportunity but until now wala pa din feedback from them. I tried to make connections din but everyone's saying they'll let me know if they find one.
I know everyone's going through different stuff with their lives but it's making me think to return to the Philippines na lng. My fam is thinking of getting a loan kasi just so I could stay here which is di na kaya ng konsensya ko.
Honestly thought din na it would be okay to get a job as FOH pero hindi pala kasi I thought they'll train me pero hindi pala dito. You do trials and it's either you fail or pass. Nasanay ako sa corporate na they give me a week training which always turns out right kasi hardworking naman ako. Hehe. I tried applying for cleaning jobs too pero they're always asking for people who have cars and are residents. With receptionist and sales assistant jobs, I got few interviews din but no one never called back.
So basically any advice as to my next steps will be welcomed. I don't know where to go from here. I talked with my roommates which are all from France but they're not working kasi so they can't relate lol
Anyway just asking for advices lng talaga. Not work. Hehe. I know I can't find it here.
All the best.
