  3. First of all, sorry if this is in wrong place. Ok lets begin, basically I'm coming to OZ on 21st August on a WHV, I'm landing in Sydney and really have no idea beyond my first week where/what I will be doing. The only thing i know is that i will need to get some work because I'm not taking enough $$$ to get by for a year without doing. If there is anybody that can point me in the right direction on this Forum/Site to any helpful information with regards to employment, hospitality, tips, guides, etc. It would be much appreciated or if you want to share your own personal stories. Also if there is anybody else out there at around the same time as me, wether you are just landing or have been there for a long time already it would be good to meet up and go for a beer, to discuss travel plans/where you have already been etc. I look forward to hearing from you guys! Cheers, Robbie!!
  4. Hi all, It's great to find this helpful forum, lovely to see all these kind people here! Just a very quick but important question: are we requied to get a job before applying for the skilled migration visa 189? this is from the immi website: "have an occupation that is on the relevant skilled occupation list". I'm currently doing a master of teaching course, does this mean I have to find a job as a teacher to be eligible to apply? I believe this is a question confusing many people as well. Thanks so much! Can't appreciate more! p.s sorry for the change in the font, I copied and pasted the quote from somewhere.. Cheers, Andrea

    Is it worth it?

    Hey, Myself(Terri-25) and my boyfriend(Conan-27) are from Ireland and have been in Australia two months now on a working holiday visa. We started in Brisbane, hired a campervan and travelled up the east coast and are now in Cairns. We've been here three weeks and are still looking for work! We have applied to hotels, cafes, cleaners..all the usual backpacker jobs cause we know thats all we will get but most employers are now responding with "Not accepting working holiday visa, must be cairns local due to the economic downturn". Australia is so expensive and the recession is hitting here now too! We have enough funds to last us another while but would prefer the security of an income. When I first arrived here I was so homesick and now don't want to leave! I love it here but i'm scared with the not finding a job and don't know whether to do regional work to get our second year..is it worth it. We have 10 months left on our visa (cant believe how fast time is going) and although we still have loads of time we are keeping an eye for regional work but most want volunteers to work and we want paid work cause it is for three months after all. My head is fried with over thinking everything, although I don't regret coming to Australia, maybe we should have came here for a holiday and went to Canada? I'm panicking about not finding work yet, and paying for rent, food etc. Everyone seems to be doing trips etc and don't want to spend the money on that (not until we find work). I'm the kind of person that over thinks everything were as my boyfriend just takes it as it comes (wish I was like him). I don't know whether we should go home- I don't want to cause my friends think I won't last here due to being a home bird (which I'm not) but with a recession here and a recession at home-at least at home we would have a bit more security but I don't want to go home. My boyfriend doesn't mind if we go home but I don't want to live with my parents again and will have to if we go back cause we won't be able to afford our own place. I've heard too that Australia is tighting up on sponsorship-which we would never get cause we aren't lucky! Just don't know anymore if Australia is worth it! Please help or provide some encouragement (I NEED it at this stage of the game) Thanks Terri
  7. Hi all, We only arrived in cairns a few days ago and things here are much like home (Ireland)...tough! Employment here isn't looking good but hopefully something will come up. We are both graduates, I'm in Business and my boyfriend is in Marine Science however as we are on working holiday visas we know it will be hard to get work in these areas. We are currently trying to find regional work, although we have only been here one month (time has flew) we want to get our regional work done early (especially when this is an oz winter-summer will be terrible for us irish lol). Also we are finding it hard to get a houseshare as apparently cairns is very demanding for house and they go quick. We have tried gumtree, real estate, domain etc but because we are looking for our regional work we don't want to commit to a long term lease and most short term's are for a month at the minimum. Hostels are also expensive for a couple even in a dorm therefore a houseshare would be more suited. Has anyone any advice on jobs, regional work, houseshares or just general info for us. Would also be great to meet some new people if anyone is in cairns CBD region. Thanks in advance Terri and Conan

    Migration and Career Advice

    I just finished a degree in BS in civil engineering in Dubai. I was planning to move to Sydney and apply for a job there. But before I do, I want to know if I have a chance to be hired by a company in Australia. Do I have a greater chance to be hired than to be rejected? In addition, I have read about sponsorships but I don’t know what they are for. Will I need sponsorship in order for me to be hired? I also want to know if what job opportunities are waiting for me. And what about the salary? Is the salary going to be high?

  12. Hey guys new to all this so please be gentle. So I am currently sponsored by a Perth based company that has all it's work in the Kimberly. I am on a 4:1 FIFO rota but it is not fixed and it is dependent on how much I want to work. I am a UK qualified electrician and I have my WA provisional electrical license. The company have done right by me with giving me and keeping me in work but since being sponsored in November as an electrician I have done only labouring work. To get my full A grade electrical license I need to do a log book which should take 6 months minimum. So here is my problem my company cannot do this so I need to find an alternative sponsor. I apply for nearly every job on Westjobs, Gumtree and Jobsearch and I have the help and advice of a solid lady at Manpower in Perth City. But I still do not have any takers. I have many trade related qualifications to help aid my job applications. But I keep hitting the wall of people not wanting to sponsor. ​ I live in Perth with my beautiful girlfriend who has only just attached onto my visa as my de-facto partner even though we have been together 6 years. Although the Kimberly is stunning we are not ready to more here on a permanent basis just yet, we love Perth too much. I would consider a Perth based job or FIFO again. I am stuck as where to turn right now and would appreciate any advice and guidance from you lovely people who have taken the time to read my ramblings. Thanks
  13. Hi, Can you tell me how long is normal in Australia for a prospective employer to get back to you following a skype interview. I have had a few job interviews over the past year and there is a flurry of activity and then all interest diminishes and no one gets back - is this normal? Here in Britain a prospective employer usually gets back within a few days - or a week tops following interview. How long should I wait before a chase the employer following interview? It has been 12 days now and heard nothing. Should I be worried?:dull:
  14. Hi, My name's Nathan, i'm 29 and i'll be coming out to Perth on a working holiday visa in July/August 2013. My girlfriend who is already in Perth has been sponsored for a job in the Perth area and is looking for somewhere for the both of us to stay. I'm looking to do my specified work as quickly as possible in order to secure another year and not have to worry about it. Does anyone know whether it is realistic to live near Perth and be able to do regional work? And what work is typically available? I'm reasonably clueless about the realities so any help would be fantastic. Many thanks Nathan

Totally in the dark about what to do!!!!:confused:

    Marketing in Australia

    Hi all, I've been working in marketing for nearly 3 years in London. I'm keen to make the move out to Australia but don't want to go and work in a bar/fruit pick. Is there any way of finding work in marketing or such like - would this be possible or just unrealistic?!
