  1. Hi there guys, new user to the forum here - I'm thinking of moving down to Australia sometime next year but wouldn't mind some answers to some questions before I do! My work background is software development (specifically Oracle database development in case you're interested!) and I've been working in this sector for nearly 12 years now. Having spoken to a couple of mates who have either worked down in Australia themselves or know of someone else who has, I've heard that there is a bit of a closed shop mentality when it comes to employing non Australians. From the experiences of people out there on the forum, is there much truth to this? Is it a case of who you know, not what you know (another thing that I've seen popping up here a bit as well!) Any info would be appreciated - I'd love to come and work down in Oz but don't fancy leaving a perfectly good job here to be unemployed down there!! Thanks a mil, Geoff
