Finding a job in Australia: You can check these websites to find job opportunities in Sydney:
If you apply for a job on Seek or Jobseeker, you will need to create your own cover letter and a resumé (CV).
You can find some advice about how to do it here: www.seek.com.au/career-advice/resume-cv
You can ask your teacher to correct your cover letter and resume before you submit your application.
Every worker in Australia needs a Tax File Number. This is a nine-digit number which your employer and the Australian government will use to pay and administer your taxes.
You can apply for your tax file number on this link: https://iar.ato.gov.au/
You can also apply for one in person at any Post Office or through your employer.
If you have a student visa, you may only work 40 hours a fortnight (14 days) while you are studying but you can work unlimited hours during scheduled course breaks.
If you work more than 40 hours per fortnight while your course is in session, you will be breaching your visa conditions and your visa may be cancelled.
