Work – Learn how to present yourself for a casual job in Australia

Ok, so you’ve prepared your CV and now feel ready to go out and start looking for a job. Great!

Maybe you’re looking for a job working in hospitality so you’ll need to find some cafes or restaurants where you can leave your CV OR maybe you’re looking for a job in retail and want to give your CV to managers in your favourite shops.

Before you go out, make sure you feel confident presenting yourself and explaining what you’re looking for. This will be the best way to find a job quickly.

Here are some sentences you can practice:

“Hi, my name is Laura, and I am looking for a part-time or casual job.”

“I have experience working as a waitress.”

“I have experience working as a kitchen hand.”

“I have previous retail experience and would like to work as a sales assistant”

“I’m available everyday from 3pm”

“I live nearby so I can work late shifts”

“Do you have any opportunities available?”

“Can I leave my CV for you to review?”

Remember, if you don’t have previous experience working in the hospitality industry but you need a casual job quickly, start by working in a cafe or as a kitchen hand. This will help you to quickly learn more about the industry and how it really works.

Good luck!
