    Tips for writing competitive Aussie CV's

    Nop, you need australian experience, with regards to OHS you need white card and stuff other trainings. Getting a job isn't as easy as we hear when we aren't in australia. Don't quit your job in uae, unless you are ready to do some odd job when you first come to australia.

    How to get a job?

    Yes, I do, 176 to be specific and this is the most annoying part. I have been talking to few guys on 457, and they have managed to get job as soon as they arrived. I think i should contact the companies directly, lets see what happens.

    How to get a job?

    Well I'm a mechanical engineer, with experience in mechanical design, production, fabrication, project engineering. And I have been applying for jobs with similar responsibilities and also have been trying for jobs in mines but they all seem to require australian experience.

    How to get a job?

    Hey rob, i don't really have a problem with the work involved in getting a job, every time I apply for jobs through seek.com, I always attach cover letter, written specifically for the job i'm applying for and I do this every time, but after a week you get the same automated reply from the recruiter... Right now i'm looking for the best way to apply for jobs. And I do agree there are lots of fake post. So far I have applied for like 10 jobs, that matched my resume like 95% but still the same automated reply and this makes you wonder what you are doing wrong. Anyways, most of you guys seem to suggest I contact the companies directly and this is what I'm gonna do this week. Thanks for the feedback to all!

    How to get a job?

    I moved to perth almost 2 months back, I'm a mechanical engineer with over 5 years experience and have managed to have just one interview so far. Most of my job applications are through seek.com, what I have found most of the adds are by recruiters not by the companies; And these recruiters are mostly normal people with no experience in whatever field you are in. Recently I was talking to a friend and he suggested I go directly to the companies and talk to the HR department, I like the idea but it seems a lot of work: first I'll have to find where their HR department located, second if they are even interested in interviewing/need people, third just traveling around, I don't have a car. I would really like to hear from engineers who have managed to get job after arriving in perth and how they used to apply for jobs.
