What if I can't find the right job?

If you’ve finished studying the AMEP and you can’t find what you are looking for through the Job Services Network program, you might benefit from taking one of our specialised courses to help you build the skills you need for the job you want.

We can help you get ready to work with courses that teach you English for the Australian workplace, local workplace culture and practices and job seeking skills. If you require training or special qualifications to get the job you want, AMES Australia can help you re-skill with one of our vocational training courses.

Check the AMES Australia course directory for more options.
