  1. Just as the title suggests. I am getting fed up trying to sort out our 175 I am considering on going on a 457 visa and securing a job so we can get out to oz quicker. Anyone heard of or used MAP recruitment? Thanks in advance
  2. 1. If you build it, they can come. Instead of simply posting your résumé on a Web site, take it one step further and design an easily-navigable Web site or online portfolio where recruiters can view your body of work, read about your goals and obtain contact information. 2. Check yourself to make sure you haven’t wrecked yourself. Google yourself to see what comes up and what potential employers will see if they do the same. If you don’t like what you find, it’s time to do damage control. 3. Narrow your options. Many job boards offer filters to help users refine their search results more quickly. You should have the option to narrow your job search by region, industry and duration, and, oftentimes, you can narrow it even more by keywords, company names, experience needed and salary. 4. Go directly to the source. Instead of just applying for the posted job opening, one of the best strategies to finding a job is to first figure out where you want to work, target that company or industry and then contact the hiring manager. Also, many employers’ career pages invite visitors to fill out candidate profiles, describing their background, jobs of interest, salary requirements and other preferences. 5. Find your niche with industry Web sites. Refine your search even more by visiting your industry’s national or regional Web site, where you can find jobs in your field that might not appear on a national job board. More and more employers are advertising jobs on these sites in hopes of getting a bigger pool of qualified applicants. 6. Try online recruiters. Recruiters will help match you with jobs that meet your specific skills and needs. Not sure where to start? Sites such as recruiterlink.com, onlinerecruitersdirectory.com, searchfirm.com and i-recruit.com provide links to online headhunters for job seekers. 7. Utilize video résumés. Video résumés are just one more way to stand out to employers. Intended as supplements to not replacements for traditional résumés, video résumés allow job seekers to showcase a little bit of their personalities and highlight one or two points of interest on their résumés. 8. Run queries. You run searches on everything else, from your high school sweetheart to low-fat recipes, so why not jobs? Enter a query that describes the exact kind of job you’re seeking and you may find more resources you wouldn’t find otherwise (but be prepared to do some sorting). 9. Utilize job alerts. Most job boards have features that allow you to sign up to receive e-mail alerts about newly available jobs that match your chosen criteria. Or go a step further and arrange an RSS (really simple syndication) feed from one of these job sites to appear on your customized Internet homepage or your PC’s news-reader software. 10. Get connected. How many times have you been told that it’s not what you know, but who you know? Thanks to the emergence of professional networking sites like LinkedIn.com, job seekers no longer have to rely on the old standby of exchanging business cards with strangers. These sites are composed of millions of industry professionals and allow you to connect with people you know and the people they know and so forth. (A word of caution: When you sign up for online social networking sites, you are in a public domain. Unless you are able to put a filter on some of your information, nothing is private, and it can be difficult to erase once it is posted.)

    Serious soul searching!

    Morning all, We have been doing some serious soul searching over the last couple of weeks given the new changes recently announced. Our plan was always that we would be in Australia before our son started secondary school in the UK so he did not get too settled into his routine. He is due to start in September 2010 (Australia would be Jan/Feb 2011). However it would seem now that our plans have been well and truly scuppered. OH and I are both from forces families and OH is himself an ex-soldier and our hope was that Morgan would have a stable secondary education in order to optimise his learning and achievements and make sound friends for life. So what do we do now? If non-CSL SS applicants are not going to be looked at until 2012 then it would seem that our application will be well down the list and it could even be longer than that. I know that it is all a bit up in the air at the moment as no-one is really sure what is going to happen but as far as I am concerned for my son it means that he could potentially be in secondary school here for 2-3 years and then we will uproot him. Not what we wanted at all.:arghh: I am lost as the best way forward. My feeling is that we just forget about the whole thing. If we get state sponsorship great but really what is the point? Sure if we get our visa in 2013 we can have a lovely holiday and validate it and then not have to move for a few more years but will the same passion and want for Australia still be there at that time? I guess that there are a lot more of you feeling like this out there and my thoughts are with you all. If there is one positive thing to come out of this it is that I will get to graduate as a lawyer which I would not if we got to go next year :smile: Sorry for the moan. OH is so laid back he should have been born an australian of that I am sure and he doesn't really understand my concerns. He just says what will be will and to an extent I am with him on that but I guess I am the worrier! Oh well back to the law books. Donna x
  8. Hi all, I have been looking for a past thread from someone in Perth. This particular PIO member and her husband have set up a garage business and posted a warning to all mechanics that WA now requires mechanics to have a license to operate. I would really like to contact her to ask for any details re. this issue and to PM her re. some Qs (wages, CVs etc.). Any help would be fabulous, :hug:. Thanks all Ley x

    Searching for my brother

    My name is Wendy and I have found out today that my brother and his family emigrated to Australia without telling us. We have no idea what part of Australia he went to only that he left in October and his wife and 2 daughters followed a couple of weeks before Christmas. His name is Micheal (Mick) Gordon he is 51 and his birthday is the 18th 0f December. His wife is Susan (Sue) and his children are Sarah and Ellen aged 16 and 13. Mick is working as a pastry chef. We have no idea why he left without telling anyone and would love to get in touch with him. We were never a close family having had a rough childhood but I always thought I was close to him and want him to know I love him and miss him. If anyone knows him could you please pass this message on to him and ask him to contact me by whichever means he chooses, just let me know you are OK. Wendy.
  11. Please can anybody give me any help with good websites to search for properties around the Sydney area? Thanks Kathryn

    Searching for a car

    I have been looking at a few sites for cars so that we have a idea of what is available when we get there. I have noticed that even quite new cars have high mileage. What is the average mileage for a car in Oz (perth)? I realise that distance there is not the same as here but I dont wont to buy a car with excessive kms. Just now I only average about 9000 miles/per year and it would be the same in Oz. I have a Subaru Legacy just now (which is great, have also had a lot of Mazdas) and would probably goes for another one/outback or a Mazda. Are parts expensive as it cost about £1000 to replace our exhaust!!. Is there an equivalent Aussie make that is just as good but maybe cheaper for repairs? Preferably a jeep or estate (need the space for the pooch) Many thanks for any thoughts Mandy PS LPG or Unleaded?
