    don't do fruit picking. don't do grape picking. It's absolute bottom of the barrel shit tier work for minimum wage that the locals won't touch. In the rest of the world they import Mexicans and Jamaicans to do it, how they get first world backpackers to consent to that absolute Black person work is beyond me.

    Don't be a frickin snowflake, work at a Subway or a convenience store ya dunce. If you can drive a forklift, do that, it pays a few bucks extra. ANY of these meme jobs (surf shop worker, WWOOFer, hostel front desk, fruit picker, lift operator) pay like absolute ass and include abysmal third world-tier shared acommodations as part of the package meaning they will deduct it from your paycheck. It's an absolute travesty.

    Frick, I know you're gonna ignore me but just... a gas station or a Subway.

    A gas station or a Subway.

    A gas station or a Subway.

      I picked fruit for 2 months and enjoyed every minute of it. I wasn't an idiot and chose a mom-n-pop farm; the couple who owned it treated me like family and I stayed at a sort of hostel full of nice Maori ex-cons who taught me how to harvest shellfish. I operated the weekly farmer's market for the farm and got to use the owner's truck for personal use. I managed to save a decent chunk of money.
      Sure I'd have had a different experience if I'd worked some wetback job alongside half the population of Szechuan but your anecdotal cynicism is of limited use to anybody, just sayin

      This is terrible advice. Work in construction and do it in Australia. Save New Zealand for pure holidays, it’s a shit place to work.

        Seems like sheetrock work would be a lot easier in Australia, but how the frick do you guys pour concrete on the ceiling?

          The same way its done in the US (albeit a lot less commonly), you build a form for the concrete (out of wood) then you pour it, then you take down the form.

    How easy would it be to nail a part time tech job with a degree?

      Look up temp agencies in one of the cities. I had a liberal arts degree and zero work experience and I got hired as a data analyst for a major firm. I didn't earn much but another guy I picked fruit with had an IT background and I think he was earning $30/hour for a while, which is on the bottom end of decent

    Best thing to do is work at a hostel.
    You get free accommodation and get paid, because it's a hostel there's always thots about and there's always fun stuff to do.
    Lie about previous experience - say you worked in some hotel back home and give your friend a family members number as a reference. Hostels hardly check because they can't be arsed especially if it's the other side of the world. I did this years back in aus and it was the best thing I ever did. Bon chance
