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! 😀

Re-match Soccer Game against BBELS! May 22nd

Yesterday afternoon we had our highly anticipated re-match against BBELS.

When we played last time it was a disappointing loss for Lexis. After a close game, BBELS scored the winning goal in the final 5 minute tiebreaker.

IMG_2563

Enrique was our designated captain for yesterdays game. He took it upon himself to get us motivated by practicing a New Zealand haka. The haka is a type of ancient Māori war dance traditionally used on the battlefield, as well as when groups came together in peace. You will often see New Zealand sports team perform a haka before a game.

Great enthusiasm from the students! I had stitches from laughing so hard!

The students had some warm up exercises before the match started and lucky for us we also had the loudest support crew!

With all of our shouting we managed to attract a new friend.. The adorable Cookie!!

He was definitely ‘Team Lexis’!!

The match went on as the sun began to set.

IMG_2631

After 15 minute quarters we were all exhausted. Thank you Captain Enrique for keeping us enthusiastic! Unfortunately it was another close game, with BBELS taking the win with a final goal in the closing minutes. The final score was 4-3. Hard luck Lexis.

It was still a great afternoon. Thank you to everyone who played and came down to support!

Keep an eye on next months activities calendar to see when our next match will be.

Salsa & Sangria! May 17th

Friday afternoon we strapped on our dancing shoes and got funky for Salsa & Sangria with Danni from Sassy Salsa.

IMG_2475

We started off with a warm up to get us into the swing of it…

And then we got straight into learning a short ‘reggaeton’ routine…

Which then quickly escalated into an epic group dance circle…

Now everyone was well and truly warmed up and ready to enjoy some sangria! I made the sangria following a simple recipe of red wine, orange juice, a table spoon of maple syrup and diced apple, strawberries, orange and lemon.

Our lesson continued learning some salsa moves and practiced with a partner.

IMG_2469

Thank you everyone for such a fun afternoon! I am already looking forward to our next dance lesson. 🙂

Easter Coffee Club! April 16th

This week we spiced up Coffee Club with hot cross buns to celebrate Easter!

hot cross bun is a spiced sweet bun made with raisins, currants or chocolate. They are marked with a cross on the top, and traditionally enjoyed on Good Friday. The eating of hot cross buns  marks the end of Lent because they are made with dairy products which are forbidden during this period.

Talita, our birthday girl enjoyed her first ever hot cross bun! 🙂

It is safe to say everyone enjoyed the hot cross buns, especially warmed up with butter 🙂

On Friday we had a free Sausage Sizzle lunch for the students! It was my first time running the BBQ and I had so much fun!

We were lucky that the rain held off and the sun was shinning so we could enjoy the BBQ outside.

Today we had our final Coffee Club for our Hiroshima Juniors group! We had our usual favourites – delicious coffees and TimTams, as well as a very fun game of Uno. We all chatted about what everyone did yesterday evening and took the time to reflect on their two-week trip so far. Everyone agreed that they would like more time here at Lexis Byron Bay as they are enjoying it so much!

We also announced the winner of our recent Scavenger Hunt photography challenge – it was the amazing group Yoga shot, taken by Kanon. Well done Kanon! 😀 See her winning shot below and her accepting her prize – TimTams! 😀
