So I’ve been in Bendigo for a little over a week now. I started sending out resumes a few days ago, but so far, only one bite. I had an interview at a bar/restaurant in Bendigo today. Pretty much the interview went south when I was asked what would prevent me from making a year commitment? Well, let’s see, the Visa only allows me to work somewhere for a maximum of 6 months. I guess if I wanted to make a 6 month commitment, I could be considered for the job, but I don’t think I’m willing to commit more than 2-3 months at a time, as I really do want to see this country.
I think I’m going to head to Melbourne tomorrow and walk around and start looking for jobs in person.
I’ve been enjoying my time with Dana and her family. We went to the Grampians last weekend. It was a lovely area, just sadly hurt by flooding and landslides. A lot of the main sites were shut down, but we saw some Aboriginal rock art, a cultural center and a giant koala bear…they make things big here in OZ.
Oh yeah, I saw a lot of kangaroos. I guess I can come home happy now!
