Congratulations!

such sense of achievement on getting the visa followed by anxieties over finally moving.... some of us are still reeling in the fact that we have finally survived the long wait...while some of us are already burning the grey cells planning the 'How, Where, When's' of moving....

come, share, ask, express - and continue the tradition of this forum...

cheers

First congratulations once again to all those who have been granted their visas. I just got mine a couple of hours and my head is still in a spin, reading the golden mail :)

I would love to stay in touch with you guys as we start our process of flying out. All the best to each one of you.

Peace out :peace:

I also had sense of achievement when I got grant but looking at the challenges ahead (job in Australia etc.), it seems we have just climbed a small mountain.....we need to climb many more big mountains.

Anyway, the positive start gave us the confidence to achieve more. We will all definitely get a big success in Australia with our skills and hard work.

Let me join in as well. For the past ten days I have been burning the Internet lines applying for joba through seek and linkedin. I have also taken a local number. But havent received a single call or mail yet which is giving me sleepless nights :(. Someone above correctly said we have many mountains to climb.

I am planning in Feb/March. In the meantime i have applied to 1 or 2 vacancies from Seek. I am only testing waters right now. I plan not be very aggressive right now...just understand the process.

I have updated my profile on LinkedIn...and am contacting my existing professional network for any opportunity.

I have spent more time on internationalizing my resume and am still updating it. Making a cover letter seems to be a challenge :)

Other than that...i am trying not to fret or over do job job hunting....

Guys something about job, I have a common feedback from all of my friends in Australia. Without physical presence there, it is nearly impossible to get the job in Australia. If you are very lucky or have special skills, you may get job online but chances are negligible.

Do not dishearten if you do not receive any reply of onliine application, it does not mean that you have no opportunity there, the only reason of not getting reply is because without meeting candidate, they do not consider even him/her for candidature.

Just collect your data of placement agencies etc. there and fix an appointment with them to meet them when you are in Australia. I am sure you will definitely get an opportunity once you are there provided you have requisite skills and experience which I am sure we all have other wise 189 would have not been possible for us.

So be patient and reach Australia with positive attitude.

Hope this will help.

Hi All 189 Visa holder Club Members,

I have booked my tickets for the Ahmedabad to Melbourne on the 21-Feb-2014. I (and my friends) still not believe the price I have paid for my one way ticket.
I advice those all 189 visa holder to do planning well in advance and avail a big big discount on your air fare like me and Mayank did.

Just a small tip while looking for the flights, the rates are less on working days then on weekend.

Till the time ..... Enjoy your stay in India.
Enjoy the things and dishes what ever you like the most because we are going to miss that all badly there :D

May I ask how much you had paid for the airfare? I did look for tickets for mid Jan, and prices from Chennai to Melbourne were at around Rs 35-38k. When I looked for in Oct-Nov, it was quoting a little cheaper at Rs 32-33k.

Hey

Thats great. I am working on my CV and cover letter too. Can you post the link to those threads on LinkedIn, if you don't mind.

Also, have you mentioned in your cover letter about your current location and when you are planning to move?
