If you don't go after what you want, you'll never have it. If you don't ask, the answer is always no. If you don't step forward, you're always in the same place...

If you get a chance,take it, If it changes your life,let it. Nobody said it would be easy they just said it would be worth it...

Your next step needs to be getting your TRA in order. Going back in your working history obtaining references. testimonials and doing a every day description of your jobs. e.i boardchanges, periodic inspections, radial outdoor power supply to outbuildings.

Employment agencies to take a look at in oz are Bluecollar.com, Seek.com. Just apply for all electrical jobs until you get a bite.

Hi Kevin

 

I am posting here which I normally do not do because it is specific to you but your emails bounced back

 

At 47 years of age you are not eligible for a Skilled visa.

 

You may be able to get an employer sponsored visa, in certain circumstances. Please could you chose between the job classifications at the end of this email, the one that fits your skills best.

 

No doubt the best way to secure an employer sponsored visa is face to face in Perth. The challenge you will have in December and January is that it is holiday period here (not to say it is not achievable) and a lot of people take the time off.

 

I am on the ground in Perth and have a good feel for what is going on here.

 

It is too early to do a TRA and I would not advise that route until an asssessment has been done for you. You may need it for certain employer sponsored visa's.

 

Best wishes

 

Phil
