Episode Slice #5: Want to Work in Australia? Alison Brown Gives Details

The job market in the U.S. sucks. Australia’s job market is better. On today’s episode slice, I’ve got Alison Brown here, who is not only a talented photographer, but is on a working holiday visa in Australia. In early 2012, she packed up her things in San Francisco and flew to Australia with a one-way ticket. It was a risk, but it all paid off in the end.

Here’s one of Alison’s favorite inspirational quotes, which she says aligns well with traveling, living your life to the fullest without fear, and going after your dreams. GREAT quote!

“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of other’s opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.” - Steve Jobs

Here are some highlights from the interview:

  • Getting a visa to work in Australia (It’s easy!)
  • Australia’s job market
  • How much easier it is to get a job in Australia that’s in a field you like versus in the U.S.
  • Helpful Australian job forums
  • Using couch surfing to meet new people and get settled
  • The friendly and laid-back lifestyle in Australia

… and so much more!
