Loads of work in the ski resorts. Mount Hotham, Falls Creek.. Any hospitality skills is a huge opportunity, from kitchen work, bar work to front of house. Its a good start if you have your R.S.A (responsible service of alcohol) and any other certificate,. First aid officer, resort managers, hotel staff, reception, cleanets etc are all needed for the ski season
Also great if you can ski, easier to get job in resort, from Ski instructor, lift operator, all experience in similar work will be an advantage. Always keep your eyes peeled before winter approaches, directly I would send resumes to resorts, bars etc, keep a look in major papers and internet agencies
