I’m Oliver a graduated graphic designer from Mainz, Germany. After my graduation I was unsure about my future plans, but at some point I realized that I want to go to Australia for a year!
The idea to combine working in my field and traveling in Australia afterwards made me happy.
I will be in Melbourne from the 5th of April and hopefully I will find a job in my field (preferably branding).
I sent my job profile to creative-recruiters and get-artisan and sent some speculative applications to several agencies in Melbourne. However there is no job offer in sight.
I interned at 4 different places and I’m freelancing since 7 years. For this reason I wasn’t pessimistic that there won’t be any agency that would like to hire an ambitious designer for 6 months?
How do you guys see my chances to find a job in my field?
Can you give me some advice how to find a job in Melbourne with a working-holiday-visa?
