MELBOURNE: Moving to Australia means running towards opportunities: Australia is a new country where the population, the economy and the opportunities are growing quickly.
Sydney, Brisbane, Melbourne, Perth and other Australian cities have a European / North America way of life, offering every kind of service, work, and fun. Quality of life is even better thanks to a lower population density than most cities, low pollution levels and a modern and efficient infrastructure.
Australian society is very multicultural, young and open-minded. The average age is 37. It’s a place where people from all over the world come to share and contribute to a modern nation living experience: Australia may not have the history of some countries, but surely has a bright future ahead.
Australia’s economy has been the success story of the last few decades: it’s grown and grown. The majority of people could be described as middle class. Job opportunities are available to everyone; Australia is a more meritocratic country than just about anywhere else. Unemployment rates are very low, and in most cities there is plenty of casual work available, expecially for young Australians and international students. And with the highest minimum wages in the world, even those in casual jobs are paid much more than in Europe.
Australia has an extremely multicultural population. Australia’s recent history is a history of mass immigration, from all parts of the world. Today 1 in 4 Australians was born overseas and that ratio is increasing.
This means that in Australia you’ll never stand out as a foreigner. If you’re smart, positive, have a good English level and the right attitude, you’ll find lot of work opportunities, probably more than in your own country. It’s no wonder Australia is often called “the lucky country”!
The English spoken in Australia is different only in the accent and one or two expressions and words. After a few days the Australian accent will sound familiar, and you’ll be ready to live in any English speaking country.
