Hi All, Did anyone out there have applied through this "State nomination for international PhD graduates" scheme? In near future I will be finishing my Ph.D in civil engineering and I need to apply for this state nomination scheme. Please let me know as soon as possible. Thank you Best Regards
Howdy folks, I'm a first timer here, So appreciate if people will go abit easy on me. :cool: I graduated from the UK studying Civil Engineering, got my lucky break afterwards getting the chance to work for a main contractor in the buildings sector. After a couple of years working I left the UK & did a small stint in South Asia working again as (you guessed right) a Civil Engineer. Then came the bright idea of applying for my PR in Australia and setting sail for the land down under.Armed with a couple years experience and a degree to add to my credentials off I went bright eyed bushy tailed. here is when my problems started, Its been a year since i set foot here and I still have problems trying to find my first break as a Civil Engineer.:confused: After applying to recruiters (not the most professional lot i've seen), companies directly, through linkedin, cold calling i'm still back to square 1. I think i've seen the worst of the lot over here from a consultant dragging my application for 7 months to tell me they wouldn't continue with my application, getting the daily dose rejection emails (not sure if they have even glanced at my resume, Oh and here comes the best.........................Tra la la...... - getting rejected from a job that I dint even apply to. :biglaugh: just wanted to see if any one else is going through the same situation as I am????:wacko: P.s - before you ask me, - no i'm not British, i've got my CV looked at by a professional, and I do live in Sydney. ( I have applied to other states as well) - My biggest problem is trying to overcome this local experience c...p Cheers
babakay45 posted a topic in Visa ChatI have a masters degree in Civil Engineering from a United Kingdom university obtained in 2010 and I am looking to immigrate to Australia. I do not have a preference as far as what part of Australia I would like to immigrate to as far as I can get a job there. Having visited a few government websites it would seem that years of requisite Civil Engineering experience is mandatory. Can someone please explain if this is the case? Since graduating, I have worked at a College but in the classroom working with learners with additional learning needs but I do not possess a teaching qualification. Can someone please help with information on how best to go about immigrating to Australia and if and how I may be qualified. Thanks.
