Returning home

As an international student you may be thinking of working overseas after you graduate, either in your home country, or in another overseas country.

It can be difficult to apply for jobs until you're settled in the country where you want to work. What you can do while still in Australia is to start to engage the hidden job market:

  • Use your list of employers by writing a letter of introduction and asking to meet with them as soon as you can.
  • Use your own network to let people know what you are looking for.
  • Find out if there is a La Trobe Alumni chapter in the particular country and make contact with the group so you are ready to get involved on arrival.
