  1. Hi guys, I am sincerely asking a question here which i saw are often much discussed, i have had PR for 1 year and 8 months by 190 south australia sponsorship, recently i got redundant, although i was informed in April, and i started to look for the next job since April all the way till now august (for 5 months around), and i still got no offer with my skillsets. now i am worried about next stage of my life, if i still got no job offer here in adelaide, can i move interstate. I am already 1 year and 8 months through my 2 years obligation, i can't just stay here with no job all the way till reach the 2 year obligation, i need to eat and pay for life expenses as well as loan. A little bit of my background, i have studied and worked and lived in Adelaide for nearly 7 years since i was 18 fresh out of my homeland, Adelaide here is like my second hometown where i spent my entire adult hood so far, however now i am facing this problem, i like Adelaide and i like Australia, but i need to pay for my life expenses. I sent a enquiry to Immigration SA, and they replied that "........SA government does not issue release letter, should you leave or stay it is your choice, and we still sincerely hope you have geniue intension to live in South Australia" My question here is if i relocate it now, will it affect my Australian citizenship or Renew of PR in the future because i didn't meet the 2 years obligation?

    Moving Jobless

    My partner and I are moving out to Sydney in March. We are looking to go out for a couple of years as a career extension/adventure. Currently we do not have any work sorted for when we get there. Our intention is to go over on a Working Holiday Visa and find a company who is willing to sponsor. does anyone have any experience of doing the same? we're also looking at jobs prior to leaving but I feel like a pointless exercise as nobody is willing to hire (and sponsor) over the phone/Skype. Our industries are Technology and Marketing. Any guidance is much appreciated!
  3. THE unemployment rate fell to a better-than-expected 5.2 per cent in May as demand for full-time labour in Australia remained red hot. Total employment rose 26,900 last month, easily beating market economists’ expectations of 15,000. Financial markets had expected a jobless rate of 5.4 per cent.:smile: Australia's jobless rate falls to 5.2pc in May | The Australian
  4. Another Australian super news: A SHARP fall in the number of jobless has set the economic stage for the election year, with the government claiming success in economic management while battling rising interest rates and calls for budget cuts. The unemployment rate fell last month to 5.5 per cent after the fourth consecutive month of rapid jobs growth, confirming the economy is in much better shape than predicted by Treasury just two months ago. Deputy Prime Minister Julia Gillard welcomed the fall, saying it demonstrated Australia's strong economic performance during the global downturn. However, she defended the need for only a gradual winding down of the government's stimulus programs: "While it's heartening to see the positive impacts of stimulus, there are still far too many Australians unemployed or working fewer hours than they'd like." Until yesterday, government ministers had accompanied announcements of good economic news with warnings that the economy was "not out of the woods", with Ms Gillard warning after the big improvement in the previous November jobs figure that Treasury still believed unemployment would reach 6.75 per cent. Economists now believe the peak in unemployment was the 5.8 per cent reached between June and October last year, and expect the decline in the number of jobless to drop below 5 per cent again later this year. There have now been 135,000 new jobs created in the past four months, matching the performance during the peak of the boom in 2007. Financial markets believe a further 25-basis-point interest rate increase is almost certain at the Reserve Bank's board meeting next month, although this decision will be influenced by the inflation figure to be reported in two weeks. However, the government now faces a risk that the official Reserve Bank interest rates will rise considerably higher this year than the 5 per cent predicted by financial markets, particularly if wages and prices start rising more quickly. "Having raised interest rates during the last election, the Reserve Bank wouldn't be be slow in acting if they thought it was appropriate in the election this year," Access Economics director Chris Richardson said. He said this risk could force the government to take much tougher decisions in the forthcoming budget than they would have preferred. While the strength of the jobs market has forced the government to stop using the prospect of further worsening of the outlook to justify its continued stimulus spending, it has put the Coalition into the awkward position of forecasting that the improvement will be short-lived and putting it down to good luck. "We're not going to keep the unemployment rate low if we drop the bundle on reform, if we see a continued spend-a-thon by the Rudd government," Tony Abbott said. "Kevin Rudd is incredibly lucky that he inherited the benefits of 25 years of reform that was begun by Bob Hawke and Paul Keating and then magnificently continued by John Howard and Peter Costello." The opposition's employment spokesman, senator Mathias Cormann, dismissed the result as only "a slight improvement" and blamed the government for the rise in long-term unemployed since December 2007, without referring to the global financial crisis that occurred in the interim. The jobs figures show the resource states of Queensland and Western Australia are beginning to reassert their leadership of economic growth. Commonwealth Bank chief economist Michael Blythe said the rebound in employment was being led by finance and the property industries, both of which shed a lot of staff during the downturn, while mining was also strong. "The economy has turned around more quickly than anyone expected. "All the leading indicators are pointing to continued rapid improvement, with a big increase in vacancies, and surveys showing companies are increasing their hiring plans." Saul Eslake, the program director at the Grattan Institute, said the Reserve Bank would be concerned that the economy was entering an upturn with less spare capacity and higher inflation than previous recoveries. Mr Eslake said the unexpected strength of the economy increased pressure on the government to reduce budget spending. He said this would not have to be done through winding back the stimulus, but could be achieved by cutting other programs.
