ASR conducted an international web survey of over 100,000 former working holiday makers (WHM) covering 55 contries. The project collected information about why WHM’s visited Australia, where they visited and the jobs they performed while in Australia, any skills or education they have obtained during their visit as well as their expenditure while in Australia. A skirmish and a large pilot test (of 1,000 former visa holders) were conducted. Jobs undertaken in Australia were coded in terms of ASCO, ANZSIC and ASCED. The results were used to review the terms and conditions of the visa, and to influence the way in which the program is promoted, as well as potential changes to how the program is run.
