Telecommunication is the first thing to reach after war, natural disaster or any calamity. Guys you should be hopeful about jobs. There might be a rough patch but that should not stop you from progressing towards your goal. Let's wait for more telco guys to gather here so that we could start a discussion.

Sometime before, I saw a separate thread for telecommunication professionals in this forum. Please search for it.

Guys,

How about the certifications for telecommunication engineers? Which certifications are quite popular nowadays or doing which one can get advantage in job market?

Especially those residing in AUS and doing telecom related roles, Please advise here.

I am willing to technically equip myself for the job market in AUS.

Hi talexpat,

What department do you work for? I am working as Transmission Engineer, my focus is on IP-MPLS.

Looks like we are working in the same country. Telecom category is full of people and no one is available on this forum to answer our questions.

Hi Raven,

I am working as Network Design Engineer for STC, Vendor: Ericsson.

Yup, there is no reply here yet from any Telecom Engineer residing in AUS . What worries me is the job market there and what we can do to further enhance our job prospects.

One of my friends is going to AUS end of this month, he's in Ericsson Optimization. I will ask him about the situation and post it here.

I also work for Ericsson, for Mobily MNS.

That's great. I will be waiting for your feedback.

I believe if all goes well, In sha Allah, we can remain in telecom market there too. Otherwise, we will have to mould our careers slightly, perhaps moving into systems side, ERP, Networking etc. As far as I have heard, there are various training centers out there, you can get the certification and then enter relevant job market.

Lets hope all goes well for all of us...

Thanks dear and good luck, I have some questions for your since we're in the same country and industry.

You got the PCC for KSA and PK, do you know how long are these two valid for? Which city are you in? I am in the west region, Jeddah. Are you using an agent? I guess yes, since you mentioned it in a post. I would like to talk to you on the phone if it's alright with you. Inbox me your number. Thanks again!

Also, I have contacted my friends in AUS, they will tell me about the certifications required to boost our careers over there.

PCC :
For KSA, it does not show any expiry date, I believe.
For Pak, certificate reads it is valid for 6 months from date of issuance.
As far as my understanding goes, DIBP considers all PCCs to be valid for 1 year from date of issuance regardless of whatever expiry PCC says.

My Location:
Central Region, Riyadh :P

And I yes I am one of those you use agents....Why not, lets talk...PMing you my no..

Thanks....Best of luck..

Thanks dear, there is no expiration date on both PCCs. You're right, the PCC should be not older than one year.

I got your number, will call you soon

I have a friend in Riyadh, looking to apply for PCC, can I give your number to him so that you can explain the procedure of PCC in your region? He also applied for EOI with me :P
