'Will appeal to would-be migrants across a wide range of business backgrounds... a very useful guide.'
With ever-increasing competition for entry into Australia and its employment market, it is useful for migrant job-hunters to arm themselves with as much practical and relevant information as possible. This handbook aims to provide a step-by-step guide to all aspects of finding both permanent and casual employment in Australia. This revised edition explains the economic climate, where to look for work, what pay and conditions to expect and provides key information about tax, contracts, your rights at work and the Australian philosophy of employment. The book includes details about the tax system being implemented in July 2000 plus updates on pensions, Newstart allowances and economic conditions, as well as useful web site addresses to enable online job searching outside Australia.

I was pleasently suprised it contains all that and more.
I was much amused by the comments on Australian culture in the workplace the concept or sickies, dobers and mates.
The book is well researched, as to how accurate, I will have to tell you after I have worked out there!
So many questions unanswered. For example for each profession listed it states where to study it...Why would you want to know this when you are Looking for a Job as the book it titled?? Regarding salary it does specify whether its per week or per month so it doesn't mean anything! It lists several recruitment agencies, most of which are too general for my area. I have found more useful info on google than in this book.
Overall it is a good starting book to get a feel for what you need current information on before you travel.
