Tips for your working holiday

The most important part of your working holiday process starts before you even leave your driveway. If you’re looking for seasonal work, you need to check where and when the season is ‘on.’ For some jobs, you may need a licence, registration, police checks or authorisation’s. It’s important to research these before you go. For example for bus or coach driving in Queensland, you generally need an MR licence as well as a QLD Driver Authorisation. This is where planning is important. If you’ve worked out where you want to go and when, you can organise the correct licenses and checks before you leave. 

  1. Travel with the season
  2. Give yourself plenty of time to plan
  3. Get any licences, health checks and police checks first
  4. Get your finances in order before you leave
  5. Have your resume ready to send to employers
