    HR applicants where are you now??

    Looking for job from 8 months no luck and no indication of job market improvement upcoming budget will put one more nail in coffin. Fingers crossed only doing odd jobs which are also very rare to find. I think Sydney is currently the worst in Australia for job seekers. However other members from different state May comment on this. I hope everyone gets a good deserving job but for new enterents things are getting bad.

    Among all jobs published by recruiters around 50% are factitious. A job with one employer is published by on average 5 recruiters or more with a slight changes in wordings. some 15%-20% of the jobs are published without a real job in the market to collect applicants data and to get information about employers offering jobs. Ever wonder why recruiters ask you which places have you had interviews and where have you been applying and who was the person in that company. So look especially for a job description with a word no agency please which mean there is only one advertisement for this job and only place your CV will end up for short listing.

    Console Operator is a petrol pump job and try to visit 7 Elevens mostly owned by Pakistanis and ask them to hire you on training. They don't pay you anything during training which can end as soon as 2 weeks or more. after that you can get a job either in same pump or other pumps the pay is also $10 to $13 ph. Its exploitation but due current job situation its still an option till you find a job in your own field. Over all things are very tough here as long as you don't have a good job which is become very difficult to get especially in IT as lot of companies are cutting jobs and there are thousands of applications for each job opening. Lifestyle is very expensive rent is extremely high owning and paying off a house even with good job is a dream. But since lot of people making irreversible decision and moving here to avoid bad situation in Pakistan will be having a very tough ride. However positive thing is you can live here with peace of mind by making sacrifices on financial side.

    Before updating my move many congrats to all who got grants especially 047 as member of super seven. since arriving Sydney in August I am still looking for job without luck had couple of interviews but nothing progress further. i began searching for odd jobs and starting console operator training from tomorrow. i personally think security job is a good option but job situation is not good even for odd jobs as you need to know someone who can refer you for a job. rest is all good I am fortunate to live with my brother that why wait long for job applications. Please share your story...
