Jennyg posted a topic in Careers and VacanciesHello, wondering if anyone on here could help....I graduated University (UK) last year as a Building Surveyor, and I am currently in Australia looking for work in this field. Prior to this I worked as a carpenter in the construction industry for 7 years. I am finding that building surveying roles in Australia seem somewhat different and have been told that my degree does not translate to Australia (regulations etc). i have been advised to apply for project management positions instead. Wondering if anyone has advice on this....particularly as i need to put forward my visa expression of interest soon and unsure of the skills category i will fall under! any advice is appreciated thanks Chris
Guest posted a topic in Aussie ChatHi everyone. This is my first post on POI and i'm looking for a little advice please. With the economic climate being as it is in the UK, my employer is looking at making savings and I have the opportunity, should I choose, to take a fairly decent redundancy package. This would hopefully give me the money needed to apply for visas etc., so that I can fulfill my dream of moving to Aus. The question is, are things any better over there? Are there jobs to be had and is it worth leaving a decent job in a country that I don't really want to be in anymore to move to a country that i'm almost certain i'd be happy in (I have visited Australia before and I have friends and family in the country). Just a bit of information about me; i'm a 32 year old Building Surveyor who would be moving on my own. I've got 11 years work experience am looking at living in / around either Melbourne, Sydney or Brisbane. I look forward to your comments / advice. Thanks in advance.
