hello all the traveler, i am going to tell u some trip while u looking for job in australia.
1: Mostly ----- they do delivery their CV to the shop they want to work in.
but for coffee shop , some of them u need to have the certificate of it. (1 or 2 days cause about 90 aus dollars )
For the bar with alcohol, you need to have the certificate of it too. (two days cause about 90 aus dollars)
2: A lot of backpacker they find job through the job broad at the hostel, it is a bit old fashion.
3: I do try find a job in the market, usuall the market is open on wed sat or sunday. Sat is the most busiest day. So you can go on wed and see then ask them.
online job :
also the for the find job -- farm job :
and if you know some taiwanese or other who work in the farm , just go and ask them.
They also have the web in chinese for farm job (so if your english is not so good , go to backpacker.com.tw)
Be friendly, they will help you if you are nice and friendly
Also what you can do is to promote youself if you are not afraid :
Print you intro and stick it at the broad of the hostel,
post it online and tell the ppl around you , you are looking for something.
For food, in you are in the big city ...and you miss chinese food, you can always go to china twon,
they always have many kinds of china noodle, seasoning and stuff. You will be able to find what you want .
If not go to the biggggg super market, they have very cheap food too.
When you have some money go out and experience the western lifestyle. Thats good for your trip.
hope my info can help , all the best to your trip and good lucky
