I have spent my working-holidays in Australia in 2016 and I made great experiences working in a hostel. But at the beginning it was hard to find one of these jobs… So I took the initiative – I searched for email-addresses of hostels and wrote them an email with my application (although they were not looking for anyone). With this strategy I was very successful. That’s why I want to share with you how I did it and also provide my collected email addresses.
