I did that **** once.. emasculation and 'accompanying' wife/partner often drives you to apply for anything you can find, suitable or not

I think this is good. Not really what I intended for this chat, but its nice to hear experiences and advice from people who've been there.
I am a banking and financial service professional with 15 years of experience. I am looking for a job in that sector and government........ anything really that fits.
The point about spelling is well taken and all the other points really
TallyHo, I am generally a positive person and I try to keep away from negativity, please if you don't have a positive contribution.........

In a lot of cases because of the way things work here (in many but not all organisations) you might find you need to apply for jobs at a higher level or grade than you would be applying for in a home country, both to justify a salary expectation and to meet expectations of a lot of employers in terms of how seniority is often directly or indirectly linked to nationality :/

I spoke to a recruiter yesterday. He told me companies here send them a list of things the candidate should have. He said if one thing on that list the candidate does not have in a lot of cases they are not even willing to look at his/her CV
