Australia: What work do the young Argentines who choose that country to live in?

Australia It is a destination chosen by many young Argentines who want to have an experience in another country. So much is the movement that they even formed a group on the Instagram social network -Argentines in Australia-, that does not stop adding followers: at the moment, they exceed 130 thousand.

Your Creator, Ramiro Rosane, created this digital community 6 years ago, and defines it as a group of friends that connects people who live in Australia, informs them of news, shows them experiences and recommendations of places to travel and work.

In these days the Prime Minister of Australia Scott Morrison announced that the country offers free visas to young people who travel in the next three months and invites them to work there. With this trend on the rise, we ask ourselves, what is the profile of young people who travel, with what training, what jobs do they do once they are in Australia?

so it counts your experience:

“I finished school in La Pampa and went to live in Italy when I was 18 years old. The idea was to process citizenship and travel. I was always curious about Oceania, this continent so far away. At that time, it was the year 2013, it was not very common to travel to these places nor was there much information, but little by little the Working Holiday visa system became a great option when it came to experiences abroad, not not only for getting to know wonderful places and for the ease of finding jobs in a matter of days, but also because of the particularities of the country, for example, the unique beaches and incredible cities.”

“After living 5 years in Italy, I made the decision to move to Melbourne, the idea was to do it for a year with the Work & Holidays program. My intention was to learn English and have new work experiences within the hotel tourism sector”.

“I currently live in Perth, on the west coast of Australia. I run an Italian restaurant that has one of the best views of the Indian Ocean in Scarborough, which is a neighborhood where you can enjoy one of the most attractive beaches in the city.”

“In the end it was much more than a year. I have lived in Australia for 8 years. Having been sponsored by an Australian company before, due to my qualifications and my experience, I was able to access a permanent residence visa that will also allow me to apply for Australian citizenship.”

So tell your experience:

“Bored with everyday life, in 2017 I decided to leave everything and emigrate in search of new experiences. I chose Australia for the simple fact that it is one of the countries that has this work and vacation program where they allow you to stay in the country for a year. I thought that Australia was also the ideal opportunity to improve my English and immerse myself in a completely different culture”.

“Making that decision to leave everything was not easy. I left my apartment, my career, my profession, my family and my friends to start from scratch on the other side of the planet. I never thought that Australia would hug me so tightly and that today, 5 years later, I would still be living and working here much more settled. I am living in Melbourne.”

“I arrived with knowledge of the world of coffee. And that was key to developing in the industry and not having too many problems when it came to finding a job. Melbourne is one of the cities with the highest number of coffee shops per capita in the world and being a barista here is really a job that is recognized a lot. Something as simple (or not so simple) as preparing lattes and cappuccinos It has allowed me to comfortably enjoy the Australian lifestyle which can often be expensive.”

“I had visas of all kinds. Working Holiday, study. During the pandemic, the government enabled new visas so that those of us who decided to stay here can continue working, especially in critical sectors (such as the gastronomy industry, for example).”

Training: a lawyer

So tell your experience:

“I left Argentina two months after graduating as a lawyer. I did it to live a new experience of traveling alone, open my mind and get to know new countries. I got to Sydney first and now I’m in Perth.”

“I dedicate myself to doing document control for a company that provides energy to the entire city. My job is to ensure that the documents in flow between the subcontractors and the main company are in accordance with Australian regulations and health and safety regulations. And, in my free time, I go to the beach, I skate, I hang out with friends.”

“I have a Working Holiday visa and I am waiting for a sponsor to come out with the company I work for.”

This is important because a company that demonstrates interest in a worker to the Australian government helps enable them to hire them even if they are not Australian.

Training: BusinessManagement. I worked in Marketing in a real estate agency and I also dedicated myself to photography and video.

So tell your experience:

“I came to Australia in 2018 to study English and fell in love with the country and its lifestyle. I got to Sydney first. Then I traveled to other parts of Australia and now I have been settled in Melbourne for 2 years”.

“In Australia I am the Marketing Manager of a technology Startup and, in addition, I am the creative director in my visual content creation agency”.

“I came with a student visa, I was with a work visa and now I am on a Post-Graduate visa with my partner. It is obtained when one of the two people finishes doing a master’s degree in Australia. In our experience, visas are easily applied through the Australian Government Immigration page. Each visa asks for certain requirements that are mandatory and, as long as you do things right and follow the rules, you live very well in Australia”.

So tell your experience:

“In 2020 I went to do an MBA in Melbourne. I worked as a waiter and then as a bartender while I was studying. My aspiration was to get a professional job as soon as possible. About 6 months after arriving I got it: in an architecture and engineering company I was in charge of the company’s strategy and growth”.

“Once I finished my MBA I started applying for more prestigious jobs. I am now a Senior Strategy Consultant – Deloitte. It is a job that changed my life. It is a salary that in Argentina I never imagined I could earn. I’m very happy. I am one of the lucky ones to follow the dream and be able to work here. I know many other people who also achieved it, who came with a student visa and now work well”.

“Life here is very orderly, although taxes are very high, you see them invested in the city. It’s a very safe place, and Melbourne is a cosmopolitan city, lots of different cultures. The nice thing is that there is a fairly large Latino community, and we all help each other.”

“Now with this that the government is giving away work or student visas The reason for this incentive is that there is no staff, there are no people to work in some sectors, such as restaurants. And there is also a lot of demand in collecting and packing fruits and vegetables in rural areas. That is what international students usually do.”
