Manuel left Italy in 2012 to live the Australian dream! He moved his whole life to Sydney and has currently been living there for four years. After two working Holiday Visa’s and one Student Visa, he then applied for a Working Visa (457 Visa) with the company he’s been working for the past four years.
Thanks to the opportunities presented to him at GO STUDY, his desires were met. Manuel wanted to share his experience in Australia and was hopeful that his story would inspire young people who were hesitant on going abroad and traveling!
Hi Manuel! Can you tell us more about your journey in Australia?
I have been in Sydney for more than four years and working at Planet Entertainment for three. Planet Entertainment provides inflatable games and other amusement equipment for event hire throughout New South Wales. I first started as an on-call labourer and after one year was offered an ongoing position. I applied for a 457 Visa with Planet Entertainment last year. I am the in-house Electrician and Event Supervisor managing medium to large jobs.
I was lucky to find this job through a friend but worked hard and consistently to prove myself and keep it. It is a fun outdoor occupation yet, hours can be long and weather conditions harsh, especially on hot summer days.
How did GO STUDY help you?
GO STUDY have always provided guidance, support and encouragement when I needed it: my resume when I arrived, the right school to learn English and to prepare my IELTS. As a company, we rely on GO STUDY to provide casual labourers for our events. I am always happy to refer people to GO STUDY because they are serious professionals who really care about students.
