I would say that swap helped me to find a new job, but it was not only this – SWAP was great in terms of advice. It’s difficult when you are in a new country because you don’t know what to do when you first arrive. SWAP gave me advice on how to prepare a resume, open a bank account, get a tax file number, and how to take the RSA test. Also, this class helped me to have an idea of the kinds of jobs that were available to me, and the average pay rates for these jobs. I believe that SWAP class will also guide me in the future because after I finish my course, I am planning to work in my area, marketing, and what the SWAP taught me will even help me in this. It is good because the SWAP coordinator not only helped me with advice for part-time jobs, but also for jobs that are related to my studies and long-term career.
