  1. Can someone please enlighten me with current job market situation for mechanical engineers in WA? The only job site that i find useful is seek.com. Most job sites have similar recruiters posting the same vacancy and there are very few companies posting vacancies, making me feel there are very few vacancies i.e. my opinion. I'll be flying to perth in september and it is frightening, so far i have applied for 20+ position and haven't received single call. Ideally i would prefer to have job before i land but looking at the current trend it looks, it will be tough to even secure interviews even when i'm there.

  17. Hi all, I am putting together my application for PR through the ENS 856 visa. A little history, I am currently on a 457 with my de-facto partner being sponsored by her employer. Both of our professions get 60 points on the SOL. I am making my application for the 856 through the first condition of; adequate skills assessment and 3 years post graduate experience. I am a mechanical engineer with a BEng which should qualify me for Engineering Technologist – 233914 (Sydney accord) and I have a post grad diploma which should qualify me for Mechanical Engineer – 233512 (Washington accord), both of these are ANZSCO Skill Level 1. I am waiting on my diploma parchment to be posted out to me for the skills assessment but I am a little unsure of what grade of skills to be assessed under. I think the bulk of my experience would fall under the description of an engineering technologist, though my current position would fall under mechanical engineer. If I got the skills assessment for mechanical engineer could I still use the engineering technologist grade for the visa application? A little further info, I got my BEng in 2006 and started work as an engineer immediately, I got my PgDip in 2008 having studied through distance learning. Thanks,

  21. To try and convince my OH about Australia I was hoping to find out about work opportunities there. His title at work is a Mechanical Maintenance Craftsman which basically means that he repairs robots or press's in the motor manufacturing industry, but I think this skill would apply to most manufacturers. Unfortunately I don't know what this would be classed under on the skills list. I would also like advise on where to look for such vacancies & to find what the salary would be. Any help would be appreciated!
  22. Hi, can anyone give me some information on skills assessment please? I have my 417 working holiday visa, when i call recruitment agencies most of them say they cant help me until i get my certificates transfered over to the Australian equivalent? Am i right in thinking the way i do this is to do my skills assessment form? On the form it asks for information on training, tasks and what machinery i'm familiar with. how in depth does this need to be? Any information anyone can give me will be greatly received. Thanks Scott:confused:

Has anyone got any info about Mechanical/Manufacturing Engineering in Oz and the best states/areas that the best companies are based?
