I assume op is asking about grad programs given they are discussing completing a tertiary education.There is always plenty of work in Sydney. You will find work no matter if its a well paid or low paid job.
Just my two cents.
My tip is to study hard and balance it with social stuff, lifestyle and maybe a part time or casual job.
It does vary a bit by degree/field though; grad jobs / clerkships in law is a different beast altogether.Play the game smart and you'll be OK. My recommendation is that in a 4 year degree you need to accumulate at-least 2 years of relevant industry experience to be in a comfortable position.
It sounds so simplistic, but I couldn't agree more. Obviously, it varies by degree/field, but the key to gaining work is understanding your industry and the steps needed to get a job. The market for graduate/entry level roles is usually quite tough, but I find that most people who fail to get work are in that position because they dont have the right strategies in place. Going to uni and getting good marks is not sufficient for most fields. You cant go through uni solely focusing on the degree, you need to diversify your skill set and engage in career development early on - not doing so is just setting yourself up for failure later.Play the game smart and you'll be OK.
They can find out you're employment history through referencesI mean seriously, what's the worst that could happen? Can the employers actually do anything?
Depends on which industry, I guess. But many companies have connections with others, and they'll definitely blacklist you. But I guess as people say, high risk high reward right?I mean seriously, what's the worst that could happen? Can the employers actually do anything?
no besides not hire u or fire u in most circumstances
