  1. University job portals: Many universities in Australia have job portals where students can search for part-time job opportunities on campus or nearby.

  2. Online job boards: Popular job search websites in Australia include Seek, Indeed, and Jora. These websites list a wide range of part-time job opportunities in different industries.

  3. Networking: International students can also try networking with classmates, professors, or alumni to find job opportunities. Attending university events and joining student organizations can also help build connections.

  4. Student job agencies: There are also several job agencies in Australia that specialize in finding part-time job opportunities for international students. These agencies may charge a fee for their services, but can provide valuable support and guidance in the job search process.
