G Day to everybody!!! :jiggy: Im new in this forum so i apologize If i break any rules of it. Let me introduce myself. My name is David. I'm 24YO, brazilian. I ve just got back from Australia. I went there to learn English, as Im graduated in Business Management and Foreign trade, to surf and to have some fun. I got sick of it and went back to Brazil thinking about settle down here (Brazil) and getting a good job. Well, about the good job, there are plenty of them. I speak fluently Italian and English now (and Portuguese of course) and this helps heaps. plus im good at excel, Finance etc. Got 1,5 years of experience working at the Santander Bank (mates from the UK would know how big this corporation is:) ) doing the job of a credit analyst (as an intern, but i know everything i should know to be an analyst). worked at a wine importer too. Summing up. i ve got a good resumè. the problem is: i dont wanna live in Brazil anymore. Dont get me Wrong. My country is awsome, nice beaches, good parties and everything else for entarteinment. i recommend for tourism. But its ****ed up too. The criminality is high. We have the highest indexes of murders in the world (40k per year, india, which is 5x bigger in pop has 20k). Its too much disorganized and all sorts of social problem. Plus, believe it or not, ITS EXPENSIVE. yes, We, individually, pay more taxes in % than Sweden!!! (if u wanna talk about it we can, eheheh) So i wanna get back to OZ. I miss it so much. I love that country. its organized, its beautiful. good life quality, awsome life style, beach, surf, skate....i love that. i have to admit that i suffered a bit of prejudice in the beginning, i was living on the Gold Coast, full of rednecks. so i was hating the people, but i think its not a general thing, if it is, i dont mind anymore, im different, im better than them. i have my mates and we have fun. any way. I would like some hints on the paths i could take to get back there FOR GOOD. i guess the only paths are trough P.R. or sponsored by a company, right? (and partner obviously) I could try to get my degree validated there, studying from 1,5 to 2 years at uni i guess. enough to apply for PR? if not, was thinking about doing an MBA too. what do u reckon? Thought about something related to finance, as finance jobs, such as finance manager, finance dealers, brokers, traders and investment advisers are in the SOL list schedule 2. (another doubt, couldnt understand the difference between the schedule 1.) I said finance but i would prefer foreing trade or something, so is any demanded skill related to foreign trade? im asking this so i could get a job here thinking about what would help me there. :biggrin: i also understand that if im lucky a company might sponsor me, but how does it work now? is it possible? any restriction list of jobs or something? there is regional something going on isnt? The gold coast area is not in that list, neither NSW places big enough to live (i would rather living there). What can i do in Brazil to help me out now? i mean. I havent started working yet, but i ll in weeks. i have to get out from my parents house and start my own life and save money for the OZ mission ( u guys know i guess, getting there, visas and fees related to any student visa course until i find a job that i can pay off the UNI - Im good on my budgets:biggrin: ) soon. I would like to do something related to foreign trade than finance, but than it would be harder to get the PR right? i mean, finance carrers or management ones are on the list i guess. I think the parents of my ex girlfriend (ozzies) would help me out somehow if i need. but, can they help? (no comments about partner visa please. its a sad situation, i made her suffer too much - i was too much of a kid then, still regret it:mask:) thanks heaps for ur help. i think this is a very interesting inniative. helping out eachother... just to help, its very virtuous. Nice from the poms, one of my best mates in OZ was pom. congratulations. ps: dont get too excited poms with the comment, we brazilians still rule the football. ehehhe :jiggy:. (its a just a joke ok...?)
Hi, I've just joined PomsInOz and would like to tell you something about why. My wife and I have a daughter who has just married an Australian and moved to Australia. I thought she would be able to apply for Australian citizenship as soon as married, but she says that first she needs to apply for permanent residence and that will, hopefully, be granted after two years from the date of marriage. Does anybody else have a similar experience. It seems a lot easier over here in the UK, and there is no compulsory two year wait. Roger
