Job Hunting Tips from our Lexis Students!

job-search

We recently spoke with six of our students here at Lexis Byron Bay, to ask them a few questions about their part-time jobs. We found out where they work, what they like about their jobs and working in Byron and also, what their dream jobs would be…

Arriving in a new place, meeting new people, starting school as well as having to find a job can be difficult! Thanks to these students, we have some tips for our current and future students, to help with the headache of finding a job. Thanks to Judith, Leo, Ania, Maria, Pedro and Lucas for the tips and positive vibes! 😉

WAS IT HARD TO FIND YOUR JOB AND WHAT DID YOU DO TO GET IT?

  • No, it wasn’t too hard! Byron is small but you have lots of options for work. Everybody always finds a job! It really helps to be positive and focused.
  • It wasn’t too easy! I spent many weeks searching and bringing my CV to every store and restaurant.
  • When I arrived in Byron it was tricky to find a job as it was Winter season here, so a bit quiet, but I didn’t give up! I went to many places and gave in my CV and after a few weeks, got my job!
  • No, it wasn’t hard to find a job! My friend told me she was leaving her job at Orgasmic Falafel and asked if I would like to take over. This was the same for another job a few months ago, my friend was leaving his position at an Italian restaurant in town. I also got some cleaning work at my accommodation after suggesting some ways to make the public spaces better and cleaner for everyone. As I am a long term student here, I was also approached about some cleaning work here in Lexis.
  • I found a job on my first week in Byron! I recommend making a CV that is very personal to you – what do you know? What experience do you have? What are your strong points?
  • It took me about 15 days to find my job. I went around to all shops, bars and restaurants asking for the manager and handing them my CV personally.

dream-job

WHAT ADVICE DO YOU HAVE FOR OTHER STUDENTS LOOKING FOR WORK?

  • Be patient! It will all work out ok!
  • If you put in the effort and are persistent, you will find your job! Ask to speak with the manager where possible.
  • Keep in touch with people and tell everyone you are looking for a job. There are so many people coming and going so you can take their jobs as they leave.
  • Never give up! and try speak with the manager.
  • Make your CV interesting and personal to you. Show them why they should hire YOU! 😀

Hiroshima Juniors Surf Lesson @ The Wreck, Byron Bay – March 28

Header

This morning we hit the beach for our second surf lesson! It was a different kind of day – not as sunny, but the clouds and light were beautiful on the beach.

Some of the students returned to do a surf lesson, while the rest were happy to swim, walk the beach and pick interesting rocks and shells 🙂

IMG_2842

Wet-suits ready to go!

Blake from Lets Go Surfing picked us up promptly at 9am, dropping us to their shop by the beach. Once everyone got fitted with their boards and wet-suits, we were ready to hit the waves!

IMG_2847

On our way to the beach

Everyone had a quick dip in the sea to cool down before the lesson.

We had the lovely Amy as our instructor today and she went through all the important points, tips and safety instructions before they were ready to hit the waves.

While they were preparing for surf, the others went for another dip!

Ready for the waves!!!

We were later joined by Lexis students Nico and Anselmo!

Hiroshima Juniors Day at Emmanuel Anglican College – March 25th

thumbnail_IMG_5885

Arriving at the school!

On Monday morning, we left Lexis Byron Bay campus and headed, by bus, to Emmanuel Anglican College in Ballina. We all gathered in their school library and were greeted by staff and students in both English and Japanese! Each student was paired with a ‘buddy‘ – a student who would take them to their classes and look after them throughout the day.

After our welcome, each student was given a tour of the beautiful school grounds by their buddy, before joining them for their morning classes, which included Maths and Science.

Enjoying some chats with their buddies during the morning break.

Enjoying a fun game of Handball during break time!

thumbnail_IMG_5893

After break, I joined some of the students in English class, where the teacher was explaining how to structure an essay.

From 12pm, we joined the Japanese classes! This was lots of fun and each group of students (Year 8 and 10) greeted our Hiroshima Juniors in Japanese, while our Juniors greeted them back in English. Everyone had a little chat to get to know eachother better.

During these classes, our Hiroshima Juniors gave a brief presentation to groups of students, introducing them to their home-place, Hiroshima.

Some Japanese-themed decorations in the Japanese room.

Activities in these classes included ‘Kahoot’ – an interactive learning game to help with language skills, listening tests and finally, a ‘speed chat’ – where each of our students had 5 minutes to chat with a student in English, before moving on to the next student when time was up.

At 3pm it was time to leave and we all met at the front of the school, where everyone had the chance to say goodbye to their buddies. Thanks for having us, Emmanuel Anglican College! 🙂

Hiroshima Juniors Surf Lesson! March 22nd

cover.JPG

Today we hit Main Beach in Byron for a very special surf lesson for our Hiroshima Juniors! The lovely Blake from Let’s Go Surfing picked us up outside the school at 9am and we headed to their shop to get fitted with wet-suits and surfboards.

Here are the guys, all ready to hit the beach!

 

IMG_2525

It was super hot by the time we hit the beach so the first thing everybody did was jump into the sea to cool down

The next thing we did – stretching! Very important before hitting the waves.

Everyone gathered around as the instructors explained the basics of surfing and how to kneel up on the board when in the water.

Safety in the water is top priority. Below, our instructor Victor explains what a rip is and how to get out of it if we encounter one in the sea.
