  1. Hi every one This is SAM from India. I am into the preparatory stage of filing the Skill Assessment for Software Engineer but have got stuck into a situation. I have got more than 3 years of Software Engineering experience (see details below) with two employers. - 20 months with prev employer as Software Engineer - 24 months with current employer as Assistant Manager (IT Department) but working as Software Engineer I am working at a large firm employing more than 14000 people and we do not have any skill specific job titles like Software Engineer etc. instead we have general titles for all designations starting from Junior Office to Director (JO, Off, Sn. Off, AM, DM, Manager, DGM, GM etc) My current employer provided the employment certificate with the following Roles and Responsibilities. However, my consultant objects that these do not correspond to the Software Engineer (ACS and DIAC) and the experience of two years can not claimed. He wants to have another letter from the same employer but the employer is refusing to issue. Roles & Responsibilities: Conduct business analysis and develop requirement documents to implement software solutions Develop project schedule and assists project manager to resource and manage projects Implement software system as per the requirement documents and provide post implementation support Create and execute application test scripts, scenarios, and test plans during Unit, Integration and System Testing Creating user manuals, training documents and training users Considering the above situation, what are the alternatives for me? An early response will be highly appreciated. Regards SAM

  3. Hi everyone, Is there any national/standardized qualification in Australia to be a teaching assistant? I am from Indonesia and I was recently granted a one year Work and Holiday visa in Australia. I possess a Diploma in Child Psychology and Learning Disorder Management issued by Singaporean college.

  4. Would welcome any information on the ' AIN ' ( assistant in nursing ) training course in Perth, also ' Phlebotomy training ' would be welcome too.

  8. I have recently moved to Sydney on a permanent spousal Visa and am looking for a mental health Nursing assistant post here. I have a year's experience working with dementia patients and more recently working 15 months with adolescents in an inpatient psychiatric unit in London. I have Graduate Diploma in Psychology and am a member of the British Psychological Society. My intention is to train as a mental health nurse within the next year or so. Ideally I want to work with adolescents as I was previously, but am not sure where to look. I am not sure how widely employed nursing assistants are here. Basically any information would be helpful. Should I approach some of the private clinics directly or are most posts filled through agencies? Thanks James

    Teacjing Assistant?

    I'm a qualified TA(level 2) and have been looking at jobs in Perth, a lot of them seem to be for a childcare cordinator and have a diploma, where can i find the information to see the certificates match, well the equivalent. Could i go for a job like a childcare cordinator? How do i find out what list of duties they're after? Anyone with a bit of guidence pls. Thanks.
  10. Hey everyone. About an hour ago I dropped my resume off at a pharmacy here which had a position going for a 'casual pharmacy assistant' I am turning 22 next week, and have never had any training or experience as a pharmacy assistant, however I have been interested in taking a course to be trained as one, and seeing as this position appears to have on-site training, and I have experience in retail which seems to be a big part of what the assistants do there (They sell make up and stuff too) I brought in my resume for them to take a look at just in case. Anyhow, I think I might actually be in for a chance at getting to an interview in the next few days! I just was told that I would recieve a call arranging an interview, so I am not sure if that is because they are interviewing everyone, or they actually like me from first impressions. I REALLY NEED TO KNOW HOW THEY MIGHT INTERVIEW ME! What kinds of questions do they ask pharmacy assistants? How could I answer them? What kinds of qualities are good for a pharmacy assistant to have?? What kind of questions can I ask THEM when they ask if I have any questions? Is there a certain dress code for this kind of interview (Blouse & black skirt?) Basically, ANYTHING that could possibly help me in any way to get this job! It is the first job I have applied for since getting my T.F.N and I am terrified! I really hate interviews and freeze up in them - I could do with any piece of information, advice or help that I can possibly get! If anybody can give me even the tiniest snippet of advice it would be SO appreciated! Thanks everyone! :hug:

  22. My husband and I are would like to ask advice as to whether or not our existing careers are in demand within Australia. I work for a private health company providing complex care to patients in their own home. I would like to work more within a commnuity based environment. My husband specialises in logistics. We hope to investigate both routes such as seeking a skilled visa and also by applying for online jobs. We are currently doing some investigative work and any words of wisdom or advice would be appreciated. We also have 2 children aged 10 and 13. I am a little worried as to whether the eldest will settle so any any advice would be great. Thanks

  25. · Ideal opportunity for experienced NUM or ADON · Large teaching hospital in Canberra · 12 month contract from September/October 2009 This is an excellent opportunity for an experienced NUM who is ready for the next step in her/his career or an experienced ADON/DON who like to have change of scenery and work place.

The Assistant Director of Nursing – Perioperative Services, will be responsible for the operational management and coordination of nursing care within the Perioperative Services. The Assistant Director of Nursing – Perioperative Services will: a. Provide the day to day operational management of the nursing services within Perioperative Services; b.
