Hello people I'm a Civil Engineer waiting for 476 visa approval , during job searching period most of us need a casual job to stay alive. I'm willing to hear experiences on this matter as well.

What are the easiest casual jobs to find around NSW area which requires little to no experience ?

What is the salary range expected after tax?

What was your story related to casual jobs if you've experienced ?

Let's discuss

If you have no limitations as to what or where you are willing to do, you might try going into agriculture. Years ago, I was a backpacker in Australia and while traveling around I did all sorts of casual jobs. Best time of my life and, believe it or not, the pay can be very solid as well, often higher than in the city. Casual jobs in wine making, cotton or wheat (the season will begin quite soon) can easily bring you in $2000 or so per week (you can deduct the tax). As an added bonus, you have much less reason to spend your money when you are out of the city and the jobs are not stressful at all, if only a little boring. In fact, if I burn out as a skilled worker, I'll be going back to the relaxing farm jobs!

First of all, thank you for such an informing answer. I'm a backpacker as well, so I've worked a little around countryside areas for a short while too. But I have a single question; how to find a job like you described, if not online ?

Thank you.

Online. Check out the seasons, major companies in the industry, etc. For instance, wine making starts around January or February in southern NSW. Major players are DeBortoli and Casella Wines. Check their websites a bit earlier (October-November) for the applications. Apply the same logic in other industries.
