Here are some reasons you’ll be excited to wake up in the morning if you’re working in Australia!
1) It’s a completely new part of the world!
Australia has strong links with countries in the Asia-Pacific region like Indonesia, China, Singapore, New Zealand or India. While also having many strong ties with the US and Europe. By being situated in a new region, you will be exposed to different and interesting methods of business.
2) Diverse workforce
As Australia is such a multicultural country, you’ll find your colleagues will all have different origins. Whether they’re from backgrounds such as South Korea, Samoa, Japan, Greece, Iran, Brazil… and of course all of Europe. This brings a great mix of thoughts of culture.
3) Solid economy
Australia has not been so affected by global financial crises that have rocked the rest of the world. This stability really helps the morale of the people and you can feel it in the workplace as your company continues to hire and opportunities are more freely advertised. Usually when Australians turn on the news, it’s more good stories about the stock market and industry gains.
4) Booming industries
Certain industry such as energy, infrastructure and mining are booming in Australia. With such a massive need for development in these areas, you’ll be exposed to highly interesting and large-scale projects, even early on in your career. It also gives you the option to move around in your industry to diverse areas of the country.
5) Amazing work-life balance
Our work days are not very long so you’ll have the luxury of more time to yourself. Of course this will vary from company to company, but on average most employees finish at 5:30pm to enjoy their above-average salaries.
Obviously everything has pros and cons but these are some of the benefits.
