How to find Outback Jobs

My husband and I worked in Australia (at fruit picking in NSW and Victoria) and did a seeding season on a 20,000 acre grain and sheep station in Western Australia a few years ago, driving big machinery.

Sending CVs to employment agencies did NO GOOD - our ages were against us. But we found that if we went in to an agency in our clean farm working clothes they gave us the once over and immediately got on the phone and we had jobs almost immediately (whereas if we went in wearing street clothes we had no luck either.)

We had farmed all our lives in New Zealand. The thing is to look the part as well as know how to work. But remember that it will be hard work and long hours - and an experience you will never forget!
