Talking Working Holiday!

Hello! New to the forums here obviously!
Would like to introduce my self, I am Michael from Canada traveling abroad with my girlfriend Sydney and we have plans and high hopes of making our way down under on a working holiday.
Before we make attempts to get a visa we were hoping to try and work out a job before hand so we don't have any struggle or financial worries to deal with upon arrival. (Doubtful but we like being prepared!)
I my self have a wide range of experience in the work field from Child care with the Mentally Challenged to work with sewage and waste industry.
We also have worked and driven in New Zealand so we are familiar with the road systems!
Any suggestions on the best way about this? We want to work for about 6 months before continuing our travels in Oz and South East Asia again.
Look forward to hearing from you and thank you for reading !

Michael & Sydney.

You will have no hope of getting a job before you come without a visa, and not much better luck getting a job even when you have a visa (prior to your arrival).

But once you get here you shouldn't have much of an issue getting a job in hospitality or similar. Lost of restrictions and qualifications generally required for people to work with children.

Just ensure you have enough saved to get you through for a few weeks whilst you find a job

Best of luck
