There's lots of web sites that advertise work Cherry, even some links on the forum but first thing you need is a visa that allows work or you can find yourself in trouble.

What type of visa did you get to come to Australia?

Sydney you may have already discovered has its Chinatown with quite a few restaurants there and others scattered about Sydney, so good opportunity there to practice english as many english speaking people also like the Australian restaurant Chinese style food.

There's also a few Japanese restaurants about but far less in number, and for restaurant work I'd think going and asking will be the best approach.

If your Japanese writing and interpretation skills are reasonable enough, I'd just go searching the internet for companies that have Japanese trade exposure and also same applies re Chinese - just start googling and you'll become familiar quick enough, make some enquiries and you may pick up some translating/interpretation work.

To do it for official documentation, you do however need recognised qualifications in that area.

To do translations you will need some qualification like NATI. It could be worthwhile taking the exam.

Try the casino also as I am sure they need Japanese/Chinese speakers and they might pay better than your average restaurant. Jobs for cafes and restaurants are usually passed on by word of mouth, so it is probably better just to visit them directly during their quiet time and passing out your resume.

Also try your local government employment office, whatever it is called now as they sometimes have jobs for Chinese speakers.

I'd like to make friends with you

Today's afternoon I had a interview about sales in market city.Just now I received a call.She told me to try to work,but no salary in first four hours.So I refused.Because she didn't tell me the salary in the afternoon.I'd like to know if it is lawful.
I'd like to teach Chinese.What should I do?

As far as doing a trial without pay Cherry, yes you do need to be wary for it is quite possible some people may try and take advantage of you.
Reputable places should at least offer a wage and I'd suspect whilst it may be illegal, that would not stop some people trying to get away with it.

As forteaching Chinese, most work would probably be through TAFE or language schools and they may require some teaching qualifications or experience.

Have you been around some of the hostels to see if anything is on their noticeboards.

Hey Cherry

Yer...watch out for dodgy stuff. Especially Chinatown, the pay isn't very good and they make you work very hard. Did you happen to enter a Chinese singing competition lately?
