Refugees, Migrants & International Students
Many refugees, migrants or international students come over to Australia and experience extreme difficulties and barriers in obtaining work or employment that they desire. The common questions are "How do I find work in Australia?", "I am highly qualified from overseas, but how come I can't find work here?"
So what are some common challenges facing refugees, migrants & international students?
You are underskilled & require qualification and experience to get into your chosen career or job pathway.
Cultural barriers, being able to fit in and avoiding discrimination
Lack of Australian workplace rights and responsibilities knowledge and trying to avoid exploitation from employers
Lack of local understanding of employment and application processes; lack of effective social networks for hidden job opportunities.
Avoiding rejections such as not having enough 'local' experience or being 'over-qualified'
Being able to present yourself professionally and getting employer/company sponsorship
