I'm halfway through my degree and need a break. Ideally, I want to work for 4/5 or so months in a ski resort o/s this summer. I want to know where I will EARN the most money. I don't care if I come home with less money than I went with, I don't care how much living expenses are, I simply want the highest taxable income when converted to aussie $$.
This is because I need to reach the strange and frustrating Australian government income requirement to declare myself independent (for some reason living on the other side of the country from my parents isnít enough!) so I can receive youth allowance/rent assistance for my last few years at university. As this will mean an extra $12,000 a year, allowing me to give up having to bust my nut working all the time to pay the rent, this is much more lucrative than a free lift pass.
All I need is to reach $17,500 of taxable income within a 19 month time-frame. The greater the sum I earn working O/S the sooner I can claim youth allowance and rent assistance.
So any advice on where I can get PAID the most would be grand! This info seems to be impossible to come by, all I ever hear is which place has subsidised accommodation and free season passes etc which is great for most but somewhat useless for my situation.
Ideally, I would like advice on where a ski instructor is paid best. Basically Iím tossing up between German-speaking Europe and Canada. I speak fluent German and that odd sublanguage of Schweizerdeutsch so Germany/Switzerland/Austria (Iím also a citizen so no problems there).
Also, as I would only be 21 for the end my working holiday Iím not so interested in going to the USA just because of the night life situation.
Cheers for any help in advance!
