A migrant’s first job in Australia: How to settle down

(Disclaimer: This article contains some general pieces of information only. I recommend where required you seek advice from your employer.)


Congratulations on landing your first job! Well done, you deserve this job. Your hard work through a large number of job searches, researching jobs, preparatory activities and job interviews has finally paid off. With the delight of getting your first job, other questions pop up in your mind:

♦ What’s next?

♦ How am I going to settle into this job?

♦ I know little about how they work in this place. How shall I survive?

Relax. I am a migrant too, to this beautiful country and I have been through this. I struggled with many questions and that is why I want to share some pieces of information with you.

Let’s take this article as a conversation between you and me.

The first day

Arrive on time

Arrive on time. To ensure you arrive on time, get the address from the recruitment agency or whoever has confirmed your employment. Also get the name and contact details of the person who you should report to upon arrival. Once you have got the address check the transport website (if you take public transport) or just Google how long it will take you to reach work from your home. It is actually a good idea to trial a journey to your work before you start working. That way on the first day you do not have to suffer from the anxiety of whether you will arrive on time or whether you will be able to spot the location.
