Foreign placement agency needed (WHP)

Post by XDD321 » Thu, 15 May 2014 9:17 am

Hi everyone,

I am interested in the work holiday program. I think its more efficient to work with an agency which specializes in short term/internship/entry level placement. I DID my own research. (and it is quite funny one agency charges 350 the other charges like 4000 5000) If you have ever worked with an agency please post the name. Thank you.

Too lazy to do your own research? Want someone else to do it for you for free?

Wake up, sonny.

Actually I email some agencies and got reply back, but its better to choose the one with positive feedback. I want people who have positive experience to refer the agency to me. Thats all.

I don't ever remember anybody using an agency as the forms and processes are easy enough for an N level student to fill out.

its not for visa process, most companies wouldnt hire short term or non local, I think those agencies have more connections

i think you may have misunderstood the purpose of the WHP...

Agree. WHP application does not require prior hiring by local companies. WHP holders normally apply first, get WHP and then look for jobs and work within the given 6 months.
