  1. Hey everyone, just trying to find people that been through a similar situation or has any advice. I've received the response from APS for a psychology skill assessment and it was recognised only 5 years (6 years is the requirement for a positive skill assessment). They considered only 1 year of my Master, even though it was a full-time 2-year program in Europe (like 90% of the Masters in Europe). According to APS, they only recognised 1 year because my Master required 500h of practice, and APS says the Master must require 1000h of practice in order for them to recognise the full 2 years. I find this very unreasonable, especially because I have 2 years of experience post degree. Please, does anyone have any advice or experience to share?
  2. I am hoping some of you can speak from experience and educate me on the reality of actually succeeding in applying for an Australian Public Service job (APS6 -> EL1)? Do outsiders get a 'look-in' or are these posts advertised to follow protocol when in essence, they already have at least one candidate lined up or performing that role, albeit in an acting capacity... Secondly, for those of you in Canberra, can a couple survive on $70k where initially, only one is working? I am not talking about a lavish lifestyle but not tight either. I know this is subjective but I am trying to get a feel for how we would possibly fair... Many Thanks.
