Field Applications/Sales Engineer looking

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I'm currently looking into moving to Oz on a 12-month visa, with a view to a more permanent move. This has involved trawling through a number of recruitment sites and throwing my CV at whoever lets me. My academic level is HNC in Electrical & Electronic Engineering, although I am doing my degree via the OU. What would be the best way to find work, or are my chances pretty slim?

 

 

Thanks to whoever replies :smilexmas:

I am electronics Technician.

Technical certificate in mining electrical

HTC in Electrical & Electronic Engineering.

23 years experience in the electronics Industry.

 

Unfortunately the electronic / electrical engineering industry is very insular in Australia :arghh:

 

So unless you are 100% exactly what the company wants you will find it very hard going.

 

The best Job agency I have found so far is

I have not been able to get a permanent job in my trade in fact it has been an uphill struggle to get a even a temp casual job.

 

I am currently training for a job in IT.

Ah, I see...I've been working mainly in pre and post sales support i.e. Field Applications Engineer in the polution monitoring industry and then ink jet.

 

Would it be a better idea to simply find some unskilled work to enable me to search while out there? I've approx £10,000 saved. Would that be enough to see me through?

 

Sorry for all the q's!

I can only inform you of my experience of Melbourne.

 

Given the current world economic situation it is more of a risk to move to Australia than it was 12 months ago.

 

I know migration agents can be expensive

But I would recommend you speak to a registered migration agent about all your possible visa options

Before you leave for Australia.:policeman:

 

 

 

But if it is your dream to move to Australia and you can obtain a 12-month work visa

Then 10k pounds should be enough to survive if you are not too extravagant and can obtain

some part time work while looking for more skilled work.

 

 

A better solution might be a take a four weeks holiday in Australia

it should give you enough time to look for employment sponsor possibilities.

 

 

I would recommend you look on web sites

If you have the opportunity to attend

Engineer’s Australia holds expos April every year

http://careers.monash.edu.au/news/engineers-australia-free-careers-expo.html

I do not know if other states run similar expos

 

Australian C.V

I do not agree with everything he claims but it may worth a look
