Give it a fair go here folks..............

Recommended Posts

Guest The McT's

I keep reading new threads & posts from PIO'ers who seem quickly & suddenly deflated after arrival. Please give Australia a fair go.

 

If you search this site you can see that lots of people go through a range of complex and often contradictorary emotions on arrival and in the early days.

 

It takes guts to put your (adult) selves under scrutiny to become migrants.

 

It takes guts & humility to enter the job market, after years working as a qualified tradie or other professional in the UK - a lot of people can't take this 'challenge' to their view of themselves.

 

Get over it nobody here gives flying f*** what you did in the UK.---- (But I had a team of 25 in Waltham Forest in charge of investigating weevils, doesn't this count for something here? ....Actually.... No ......nobody understands or cares, get over yourself & find something you can do here)

 

Give it a fair go, make an effort, and you might find it pretty ok here......

I wholeheartedly agreed but in recent times there are a few people who simply couldn't find work and didn't have enough money to stay any longer - they did give Australia a 'fair chance' but as an adult you have to behave responsibly and for some that has been giving up their dreams & returning to the UK.

Oh yes, me too, in the UK I got most of my work on the strength of the other companies I'd worked for here they are unheard of.

 

On the otherhand both OH & I have experienced the other extreme where it is perceived we must be incredibly talented because we were sponsored to be here (a first for the company) and people very interested in our UK experience.

 

I do enntirely agree with the OP it's just people return to the UK for all kinds of reasons
