Nab That Job in Australia!

Do I have an Australian Visa or am I already living in Australia?

Yes

Have I applied for an Australian visa or residency?

No

Do I require sponsorship?

No

What is my biggest challenge with finding employment in Australia?

The biggest challenge in finding a position has been the fact that I have only been here 4 months and have no experience in the Australian working culture, and also my age. I am therefore politely rejected. I have years of experience in admin and just need one employer to give me the chance to show that although I would have to learn new systemns, I would be able to execute the position with complete integrity.
