  1. Howdy folks, I'm a first timer here, So appreciate if people will go abit easy on me. :cool: I graduated from the UK studying Civil Engineering, got my lucky break afterwards getting the chance to work for a main contractor in the buildings sector. After a couple of years working I left the UK & did a small stint in South Asia working again as (you guessed right) a Civil Engineer. Then came the bright idea of applying for my PR in Australia and setting sail for the land down under.Armed with a couple years experience and a degree to add to my credentials off I went bright eyed bushy tailed. here is when my problems started, Its been a year since i set foot here and I still have problems trying to find my first break as a Civil Engineer.:confused: After applying to recruiters (not the most professional lot i've seen), companies directly, through linkedin, cold calling i'm still back to square 1. I think i've seen the worst of the lot over here from a consultant dragging my application for 7 months to tell me they wouldn't continue with my application, getting the daily dose rejection emails (not sure if they have even glanced at my resume, Oh and here comes the best.........................Tra la la...... - getting rejected from a job that I dint even apply to. :biglaugh: just wanted to see if any one else is going through the same situation as I am????:wacko: P.s - before you ask me, - no i'm not British, i've got my CV looked at by a professional, and I do live in Sydney. ( I have applied to other states as well) - My biggest problem is trying to overcome this local experience c...p Cheers
