    I came on the same visa and also very limited funds. It took me 2 days to find waitressing work but 6 weeks to find full time temp work - longer than I expected. Most people I know found work faster than that but I'd want to be able to easily support myself for a couple of months and have a decent credit card limit too. If you can live cheap cheap cheap for a while until you secure work, go for it... what's life without a little adventure! So glad I did it...

     

    I came over with about 1500GBP in the bank, FYI...

    I was thinking coming over with just a credit card with a 6,200 credit card limit with no hard cash. I was hoping to get a bar job or anything really from the off would appreciate anyone who could do anything to help thanks

    I not sure about now but a few years ago you had to do a course to work in a bar as a bartender you had to gain some kind of certificate my daughter was going to do it so look into it before you leap things are not great work wise over here at the moment so think about it before comming over.

    I know this is a late reply, however I just saw it.

    Job prospects in Adelaide are high :-)

    How long are you planning on staying in Adelaide?

     

    If you are confident and enjoy talking to people, want to work in a young fun environment whilst your here then I advise you

    To look up on seek.com.au under sales for a job as a Sales Rep for Simply Energy, an electricity and gas retailer here in Adelaide. They are always recruiting new people :) base rate of $700 plus you can earn great commission too :)

    I moved to adelaide myself from Belfast, Northern Ireland only 9months ago and got this job straight away, experience isn't neccessary (i was straight outta school at 18) and I can afford to pay rent on my place, eat, live, and socialisme and save for travelling :)

     

    So with this job you would definitely be able to build q good life for your self here.

     

    Anyway if your interested sure look up on seek or give myself a buzz on 0401028911, names Bek :)
