Tourism receives seasonal job boost

Are you studying tourism? The seasonal nature of tourism means you can gain experience on temporary jobs during or after your studies.

Tourism Australia and career resource brand Monster.com have combined to help fill seasonal roles across the country. Until March 2014, Australian tourism businesses have been invited to post temporary positions for free, which will be published on a dedicated working holiday site bestjobs.careerone.com.au and across the CareerOne network.

"Finding people to fill temporary job vacancies is an issue many tourism operators struggle with, particularly given the seasonal nature of the business," said Andrew McEvoy, managing director of Tourism Australia. "Our industry currently has around 36,000 temporary jobs which need filling. What the new 'jobs board' does is match job seekers to many of those hard to fill temporary vacancies."

The job roles are ideal for tourism students looking for temporary work during or after study to enable them to secure experience before looking for a more permanent role.

The site is also aimed at working holiday makers looking for seasonal jobs as they travel around Australia, boosted by Tourism Australia's 'Best Jobs in the World' competition, an initiative to attract more working holiday makers to Australia.

"With many of the world's economies stagnating and with youth unemployment on the rise, there has never been a better time to take a working holiday in Australia and probably never a better opportunity of finding suitable work," McEvoy said.
Tourism businesses can post their free seasonal job ads at workingholidayjobs.careerone.com.au while jobseekers can visit bestjobs.careerone.com.au.
