背包客也能找到office工作,The Roey会计助手求职记




The Roey, 全名Roebuck Bay Hotel,始建于1890年,是Broome历史最悠久的旅馆。经营范围包括:背包客栈,旅馆,餐厅,3大酒吧(Sports Bar, Oasis Bar, Skylla Lounge) 和 酒超市。

 

在The Roey, 每周四晚上的Wet T Party极受背包客及当地人欢迎。“没有来过Roey的Broome之旅是不完整的”——大家都这么说。

简单介绍下我在The Roey的岗位:

 

  • 职位:Account Payable

  • 薪资:$26.49/h

  • 工作时间:逢工作日8:00-16:30

  • 工作内容:

  1. 收集打印invoice,找领导签字授权付款;

  2. 录入系统,确保各种资料电子存档;

  3. 处理各个系统的报告,确保数据一致;

  4. 在due date前给各大供应商付款;

  5. 核对Statement,确保没有遗漏处理的invoice;

  6. 记录核实每天营业额,及各种账户之间的调账。

  7. 完成会计交代的其他活。

 
关于Account Payable这个岗位,我暂时没找到对应的中文翻译,而且又是在给会计打下手,暂且称自己为会计助手。欢迎内行小伙伴赐教。
 
由于当时得到offer太开心,我都忘记问薪资了,直到第一次发工资才得知时薪是$26.49,周末另算(这个薪资在Broome这个打工者天堂只能算上平均水平)。
 
工作时间为周一至周五8:00-16:30, 中午任意休息30分钟,每周工时有40h。

下面将分享我如何找到这份工作。
 
时间倒退回1月中,虽然当时很欢乐地在咖啡厅打咖啡,但是它离家远,通勤不方便,想找份离家近的工作。
 
彼时的我,已经尝试过小超市,中餐厅,咖啡厅,西餐厅打杂,不想再找类似的工作,决心进军办公室打杂。

接下来就是狂刷几大招聘网站:Seek, Indeed, Gumtree, Facebook。我甚至在网站上设置了Broome的新工作提醒,只要有新岗位登出,隔天便会收到网站的新岗位汇总提醒。
 
1月15日,在收到Seek推送的邮件提醒后,火速网投了这个Account Payable的岗位,离家只有800米,骑车5分钟,简直完美。

虽然我之前没有任何此岗位的经验,但是我脸皮够厚背包客也能找到office工作,The Roey会计助手求职记

岗位要求

投完后再仔细一瞧“But if you feel you have the desire and commitment to learn, comeand see us for a chat. Everyone has to start somewhere”莫名被后半句感动到,大白话即:只要你有心要学,过来聊一下,没经验也没关系,每个人都是这样走过来的。
 
立马让活泼可爱美丽动人的舍友Ophelia帮忙打印了简历,骑着我的Tiffany出门去walk in投简历了。
 
Walk in当天没聊到什么,递交了简历,员工就让我回来等电话了。这话真心客套啊,但如果他们过几天不给我电话,我一定会厚脸皮再回来的。
 
3天后,就收到经理Tamara的面试电话了,大概问了一下我之前的工作经验,我坦诚在澳洲并没有相关的经验,着重强调之前国内的银行经验,及我超级愿意学习新知识的心。她很爽快地约我隔天到办公室面谈。耶嘿!成功了一半!
 
挂了电话后,那天下午一整天我都在Youtube恶补MYOB的基本操作及温习Excel的课程(离开办公室已久,连基本快捷键都忘记了),为面试做力所能及的准备。
 
1月19号面试当天,排在我前面的一位面试者看上去非常正式且职业,给我添了不少压力。

然而轮到我面时,整个过程并没有我想象中的严肃和正式,我甚至都想不起来问了啥问题。面试结束后,两位经理Tamara and Sue和我确认了上班时间。【震惊,幸福来得如此突然】
 
1月21日,正式开启了我在The Roey的办公室打杂生涯。
 
从投简历到电话沟通到面试,再到正式上班,只花了6天。这个效率赞耶!

你们一定和我一样好奇,他们为啥在此岗位上请一个中国的背包客咧?就此我还突发奇想特地“采访”了我的上司Sue Diamond。
 
前方高能预警:我的声音太大,Sue的声音太小,整体音质欠佳,感兴趣小伙伴可以戳开,纯当听力素材。

width=”100%” src=”https://mp.weixin.qq.com/mp/readtemplate?t=pages/video_player_tmpl&action=mpvideo&auto=0&vid=wxv_1799160228135895042″ frameborder=”0″ allowfullscreen=”true”>

 (文末有原文参考)

总结下来就是:

  • 我比较幸运

  • 他们很缺人

  • 中国人天生的逻辑感优势

  • 我给他们的感觉很开心,性格不错。

岗位难上手么?有没有语言的障碍?
 
语言障碍是肯定有的。听不懂的时候,我都直接说不明白,Sue要么换另外一种表达,要么直接给我谷歌单词。

必须要配一张神仙上司Sue独照

她虽然是我的头头,但是绝对没有大架子。从基本概念的解释,流程的介绍,到MYOB系统操作,都十分耐心教我。

由于这个岗位的性质,她希望我不确定的地方能及时沟通,而不是自己擅自做决定操作。这或许在其它岗位也适用,不懂就要敢于请教。
 
她乐意教,我用心学。在她的教导下,一个月后,另外一位员工入职时,我已经能教新员工系统层面的操作了。

从左到右:Account Payable, Accountant, Bookkeeper

工作内容不难,同事也很好相处,唯一一点很难适应的就是:只有30分钟的午休。午休后的我盯着电脑就能睡着。何以解困?唯有咖啡!导致我现在重度依赖咖啡,不喝咖啡就没劲。

最后,结合我自己这段找办公室工作经验,给想找类似工作的小伙伴一点建议:
 
  • 设计好简历



简历是给雇主展示自己能力和工作经验的第一个载体。过了这一关,才有接下来的电话/面试。

网上有很多简历模板可以套用;而关于岗位描述,可以借鉴招聘网站类似职位的用词。尽量让简历看上去整洁及专业。
 
  • 脸皮要够厚



不管职位要求多高大上,不管自己是否符合职位要求,投投投。投了不一定有机会,但不投肯定没机会被看见。
 
  • 练好英文



这听起来很老套。一旦尝过英文好的甜头,你就会自觉学习了。网络资源那么丰富,大家一定会找到适合自己的方法。
 
  • 多做好事攒人品



平时呢,多扶老奶奶过马路,为人品攒积分。 

在Broome的小伙伴呢,周末有空可以顺便载Amy逛下超市,发工资了就请Amy吃顿饭,带Amy出去兜风。

最后,给大家拜个晚年,祝大家牛气冲天,找到理想工作。

视频原文参考:
 
A: Sue?
S: En.
A: I suddenly have this idea. You know I’ve been writing blogs, right?
S: Yea, What have you done now?
A: And… I was thinking…
S: Here we go.
A: Would it be OK for you to …like…answer a few questions and I will take a video of that and put it into my next blog?
S: Go on.
A: Can I do it now?
S: What am I answering?
A: Just a simple very very simple…OK What comes to my mind is…
S: I have to think what comes to your mind.

A: You know I always have new ideas, eh,yes. It is basically about, you know, jobs tips for backpackers who are lookingfor office jobs. That’s what I am going to write, going to share.
S: Jobs tips, wooooo That’s hard. A lot of people don’t want backpackers for office work.
A: Really?
S: Really.
A: Yea yea, we do know that but you knowhere I am.
S: You are lucky, very lucky.

A: Yes. I consider myself very lucky too. So eh, my questions 1 is what do you value the most, you know, in the candidateor the person that’s gonna work with you in the office?
S: Oh God. How I get myself into this.
A: Take it easy, It is very…
S: Well, think about it.
A:Yea, think about me!
S: I know, that’s what I am thinking about. What do I value? Someone who can follow a process. When you use Excel, you can move stuff around.
A: Got that little skills to make works easier. That’s good.
S: Someone who understands. Talking you anyway.

A: Ha, you’re talking about me. Yes. And thank you Sue! My next question will be, I probably have asked you before, but I kind of forget. So when or what made you and Tamara that, you know, kind of came to an agreement that ( to hire me)?
S: Desperations.
A: Desperations!
S: We need someone.
A: Desperately need someone badly.
S: I suppose being Chinese…there is an assumption that Chinese are logical thinkers,clear thinkers, business, I supposed, oriented.
A: But, you know, you just look at my resume…
S: With technical, I don’t know, Chinese people are supposed, are able to get hired in banking and business world. It is just inherent skills. It is something that is within you.
A: Oh, appreciated you saying that because,you know, like we already know, I applied the job on SEEK, and then I walked in, and then when I came for the interview, and I think it is gonna be like hard and truly interview, but when I came for the interview, you were interviewing another young man, right?
S: Yeah, he was just laid-back, and yeah, no worries, when the pressure gets put on, what do he gonna do?
A: But you can tell what you can expect from me that day? Just curious.
S: He had a lot of qualifications in Australia, he wasn’t using it. And you ask yourself why.
A: Emmmm. I am so lucky. Cause I remember that day when I walked in and I ‘ve told you yesterday before I came to the office to meet you and Tamara, I did watch a lot of videos(of MYOB).
S: I am sure he didn’t.
A: Yeah, I am just want to be prepared. But what surprised me is, like, we were having a very casual talk about my availability and when to work something like that. And then I got a job. Yes, so now that we are…
S: The hard thing is that I can’t keep you.
A: Yeah I am thinking, I’ll try to be here as long as I can
S:….I can handle it. Cause all the backpackers in Pearlers or Sports bar, they come, they are gone.
A: Before you know it, know them.
S: Exactly. You do payrolls, all the employee files. They come, they go. Trying to keep up with moving it on.
A: That’s not me.
S: It is just something inherent with Chinese, I suppose, you expect them to have more understanding of technology.

A: So have you ever worked with any Chinese before?
S: I have, not many. Just sort of generalized expectation, or perception.
A: Oh~~~I ‘ll take it as an accomplishment.Thank you Sue. And what’s next? So, what’s your first impression of me that day? Although we didn’t really have a very serious interview.
S: You were…impression… you were happy, you were out… Look like you were making things easy to please people.
A: Thank you, even the first day?
S: Even the first day? Especially the firstday.
A: Really? Thank you Sue.
S: Nice personality. Looking to please people.
A: Thank you Sue!
S: You are still easy to please. Make it easier for the employer.
A: Enjoy to work… enjoy the working.
S: That’s it.

A: Yes, thank you. So… What’s next what’s next…
S: Stop, turn it off. That’s what’s next.
A: OK Sue. I would make you better Chai Latte. I’ll catch up catch up with the best Chai latte that you’ve ever had. OK. Thank you Sue! I am happy you are doing this for me. Thank you!
S: Bye.
