  1. We have family living in perth and eventually would like to join them when my studies are finished! I have until December to make up my mind..I'm trying to research which is the better career choice for australia. Any info would be greatly appreciated it's between a paramedic or Midwife?!
  2. Hi all, I am a permanent resident who was granted a skilled migration VISA based on my skills and experience. Back in the UK, I worked in IT for 7 years for the biggest IT company in the world. I have professional certifications as well as academic and in my previous role I received 2 promotions. I consider myself very skilled and experienced. When I moved over to Australia in November and begun my job search I assumed it was a bad period due to the Christmas holidays coming up so didn't think much of it. After the new year, my partner joined me and we both started looking for work. I have met and spoken to job recruiters on multiple occasions who have been very impressed with my CV. Everyone keeps telling me ' you will find work in no time ' or ' you will get massive interest and job offers thrown your way'. Months have gone by and I am still unemployed.. I have been sending multiple applications a day. I have tried directly phoning up job advertisers only to be told how impressive my skills and experience are and that they would get back to me soon. They never do. Once I've rang 2-3 times I give up because I begin to perceive it as me harassing them. I am applying via SEEK, via Linkedin and through job recruiters. The only jobs I apply to are the ones posted on that same day(to increase my chances of them having been filled already). The only replies I receive are to tell me I have been unsuccessful. I have had 2 interviews in total. They completely praised me and told me they would be getting back to me. One of the guys even said ‘ we will be moving fast before someone else snatches you up’. I never heard back. When I called to follow up, he didn’t even remember my name. That was 2 months ago. My partner has had NO interviews or interest. He is also working in IT. I’m beginning to feel very low about the whole situation. We had a lot of money in savings to keep us going but it really is starting to run out after months of no work. We still have a monthly rent, bills and expenses and Australia is expensive. I am an extremely active person but I feel I can’t even travel far from Melbourne, either due to limited funds or because I want to make myself available for potential interviews. I am at the point where I am just tired and bored. We still get out for walks but we really can't afford doing much else other than staying in and watching movies.. (and the multiple job applications per day). Have other people found it this hard getting into work here? I am in Melbourne and have no idea what it is I’m doing wrong. I'm trying to stay positive but it really is affecting my state of mind. I'm beginning to wonder if this move was a massive mistake. I don't understand why I was even granted a skilled VISA if there just isn't enough work for skilled young people.

  5. Hi all, just a post out of interest really more than anything. My girlfriend and I are heading out to Australia in July 2015 for a 6 week break to do some city hopping and general travelling (not the backpacker type). We haven't got any rock solid plans of living and working in Australia but it is something we have spoken about and I guess we are using this trip to see if the way of life is different and we can acclimatise to it? I am 27 and a fully qualified British PGA Golf Professional, and have been for the last 4 years. I guess my first line of questioning would be; what is the current economic situation with golf in Australia? Would you say there is much scope for a British qualified professional? I am fully aware there is an Australian version of the qualification I have and I guess that most golf clubs are inclined to hire home based professionals as opposed to overseas applicants. Would I be best landing in Australia and doing some "recce" work with golf clubs in different states to put the feelers out? Or would it be wise to send a couple of emails closer to the time?:wideeyed: Any advice or help would be massively appreciated, thank you in advance Lee :smile:
  6. Hi All, This is my first post. To start things off, I have over 6 years in the construction industry (mainly in civil & structural engineer drafting) with experience running my own jobs back home in Jersey. To back all this up I have multiple qualifications (2/3 of my BSc (Hons) Construction Management completed), yet I get turned away from every job I apply for due to the same reasoning "Australian Experience Essential". How is anybody meant to gain experience in nobody is willing to open a door? I have even tried applying for traineeship roles, telling them I don't mind taking the drop in salary, etc, explaining how they will gain out of it due to the fact they only need to teach me Australian codes. Yet I get turned away because I am, to them, "Over Qualified"!! Its so aggravating!! I'm even applying Australia wide for jobs! Still no door opens! Has anybody else had this problem? If so how did you get past it? Rant Over!
  7. Hey all, I've just moved over to Aus on the Working Holiday visa. I'm applying for permanent jobs, and have been told by one interviewer that I could offer to pay for my own sponsorship. Two questions: How much would it cost me to pay for my own sponsorship? What does a company need to do/have in order to be eligible to sponsor an employee? Any links to the relevant info on the net would be brilliant! Thanks in advance, Fi

    Mining careers

    Does anyone have any information on companies that hire in the mining industry with noexperience or qualifacations?
  10. Hi all, I was just wondering if anybody who moved to Australia has changed their career completely from the job/skills they originally came out with? Or has become self-employed? It would be interesting to see what kind of changes other people made, after all, most of us emigrated out here with a specific skill that was required for PR. I am thinking of a career change and would like to become self-employed and move away from the city to an area which we love, but there are not much jobs available.
  11. Hi everyone, I'm going to a careers evening in London in a couple of weeks at a recruitment agency. Heres the information if anyone else would like to go. http://dmtrk.net/t/9FS-IP4F-D81E1L0D21/cr.aspx

    Careers in Supply Chain

    Hi, I have been offered a life line of a job offer in NZ (Christchurch & Auckland) which will obviously help me with my visa application. However, I am not too sure about the company making the offer. Can anybody give me any information on the current jobs market in the supply chain industries....Freight forwarding, transport, warehousing etc. I have worked at a senior level in the industry for 20+ years and recently owned/ran my own supply chain business for 4 years in the UK. Is there a requirement for logistic professionals in any relevant industry? Any feedback would be greatly appreciated before I make the jump! Cheers Gary
  13. Hi, I am looking for some info for my partner who wants to pursue nursing as a career. Currently we are living in the UK, when we do decide to move to aus, she will be applying for a Spouse visa, and hopefully will be granted a Perm. visa straight away. What she would like to find out is this: 1. If she studied Nursing here in the UK; How long will the course/s be and will she then be able to move to australia and get a job on those qualifications? 2. What specific course/s would she need to pursue in Nursing over here? OR 3. If we moved to Australia now; Could she study as a Nurse over there? And if so, which course/s would she need to pursue? Any info would be so helpful. Thank You

    Careers Advice

    Can anyone recommend where I should go to get some careers advice? I have looked at local careers advisors in yellow pages/on the internet but they seem to be more geared towards either school leavers, or towards people who want to develop the career they are already in. Other than that, all I have found is things where you can pay to do personality tests to be told what sort of career might suit you, but I'm not sure whether these are accurate, or whether they just come up with a general list. My situation is that currently I am a stay at home mum. Our eldest will be off to school next Jan, and our youngest two years after that. I am 35 and already have two degrees, the first one I did in a subject I loved but couldn't find a job in, the second one in something that gave me a well paid job at the end, but I hated. I decided that I didn't want to return to that after I had the children (and I couldn't work over here anyway unless I resit my professional exams which I wouldn't pass, having been out of work for four years). I have started thinking that I would like to return to work at some point, but am having difficulty in working out what I would like to do. I would like a career, rather than a job and I am prepared to study if necessary, but I am worried about making the wrong decision, given my semi-advanced age! Any ideas where I can get advice, or any experience of those on-line careers/personality tests
  15. 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

    Careers in Travel

    Hello All I'm new to PIO so I hope i'm not asking a silly question in the wrong place or anything like that. My partner and myself have lodged our 176 visa back in December and now we are just waiting and are hopefully able to make the move next year. I am looking into a career change and doing something in Travel really interests me. As I currently work full time, any extra courses that I do would have to be online and yesterday I saw a course which the qualification at the end is a BTEC Level 3 in Travel and Tourism. I was wondering if anyone knows if this is a recognised qualification in Australia? As I have a Customer Service background with my current job, I would love to work for someone like QANTAS as Customer Service Ground Staff (not sure if that's the correct term). If anyone can help I would love to hear from you as any extra info I can get would be great. Thanks for reading Kimberly
  18. I am a qualified plumber/gas engineer moving to OZ next year and was wondering what re-training I would need to take and how long to bring me up to the Ozzy standard. If anyone can help with the info (any books/web links or your experiences) I would be most grateful.:unsure:
  19. Hi Can anyone give me an up to date picture of what the job market is like in Adelaide for IT people? There doesn't seem to be many jobs on Seek or Career One etc, compared to other parts of Australia, but the IT jobs are on their list of 'wanted' for state sponsorship. I am particularly interested in IT infrastructure/architecture jobs. Many thanks. :smile:

    Careers in Fitness

    Mrs I is a fully qualified personal trainer and sports therapist and I am thinking along the same lines as a second career. We always hear about the Oz way of life being very active - does anyone have any thoughts about this line of work? We are not really worried about the money aspects, it is more lifestyle and job satisfaction that appeal - I really fancy wearing shorts for the rest of my life! Grateful for your thoughts!
