Ms Swan took to the popular Facebook page Backpacker Jobs in Australia this week to post her search for work.
‘I will then be looking for work, ideally with accommodation, in the new year,’ she wrote.
‘I’m willing to travel anywhere for the right position and currently have my own car.’
Ms Swan said she had previous experience in retail, working in a pharmacy, childcare and as an ambulance driver.
However, it wasn’t her job search that garnered the most attention, it was a picture of her in a slim black bikini with denim shorts that received unwanted attention online.
Users slammed her clothing choice as dressing ‘inappropriately’.

‘It may be a backpackers group but when you’re looking for a job, act accordingly,’ one person wrote.
‘If I were looking for work I would NOT post a photo of myself wearing a bikini,’ a second commented.
‘Sorry to say but your photos might send mixed signals regarding what you’re looking for here,’ said a third.
While others voiced their concern for her safety saying, ‘be careful out there’, advising the backpacker to be careful posting those types of pictures.
‘As a female solo traveller myself, I’d be careful with pictures like yours while asking for a job,’ one person wrote.
Ms Swan hit out at the trolls saying she has been flooded with job opportunities since making the post.
‘To anyone saying they wouldn’t give me work because of the photos I have posted, you would equally not be someone I would like to work for,’ she wrote.
‘Just to prove all you jealous people wrong (I say jealous as that’s the only reason that I can think you can be so rude and inconsiderate) I am inundated with job offers in my direct messages and will look through them soon and get back to you all, so thank you all!’

Her Instagram account is followed by more than 1300 people and features the picture that caused a stir online, captioned, ‘Turning into an Aussie girl more and more everyday’.
