Hi there, my name is Nenad.I am from Serbia.
In order to get some help over the internet I found this site. I hope I will find some information I seek. I hope I am on the right place:D.
My occupation i traffic and transport engineer. I know it is under civil engineer.
Can someone tell me, if you know, what is demand for my occupation in australia?
Second, I also need some information about possibilities to find job in my occupation?( I know it is world crisis).
Third, I heard that it use to be "meeting and greeting" program, some kind of help to immigrants. It helps to find first work and to find some kind of accomodation.Is there still that program, and how can I apply for it?
I forgot to say, I want to come to australia to work and live as a skill emigrant.
Sorry for my english. I am still in progress in learning for IELTS.

Hi there,

Sorry but I don't have any idea as to how 'in demand' a civil engineer would be. It might be an idea to phone or email a few job agencies and ask them, you could then also ask them about job prospects.

Again, sorry, but I've not heard of such a program. Are you thinking of something like a relocation company? Actually come to think of it, I vaguely remember reading something about the government helping new migrants find work...but I think that would be dependent on which visa you use. Perhaps someone else can clarify? You could always email an agent and ask them. We do have a few agents who post on here - Veronika (SOMV) posts fairly regularly and you can contact her via her signature.

What visa are you going to apply for?

I was thinking to apply as a skilled migrant( subclass 175, I think). As I saw on Department of Immigration & Citizenship, traffic engineer is under civil engineer and it was(for the past year or so)on the MODL and CSL. I hope it will be in the next few months.
Does anyone knows what is procedure when visa is approved?I know it is early to think about it, but just in case, to be prepared. Do I have to find in front, some
acommodation, job. I mean if 175 visa is approved, or there is some sort of program for migrants????
I mean, where should I go from airplane:confused::confused:
I know this is early, but I am that kind of person who want's to know something in front.
Thanks

When you get your visa you will be given an "initial date of entry". That means you have to either validate your visa or emigrate by that date.

It's down to you to sort out accommodation and a job. Most people get short term accommodation arranged before they arrive, giving them some breathing space in which to find a longer term rental. A month or so before you leave you should start emailing and phoning companies/recruitment agencies and get as many interviews sorted out as you can.

That is what I meant. I DO get some sort of accommodation, in the beginning, right? After that is up to me, I know that.
Thank you. I will get some other questions if I need one. :confused2:
Thanks again.

Wrong.

It's down to YOU to sort out your accommodation - short term, long term, any term.....it's your responsibility.

If in doubt, and you don't get the answer you're looking for, contact an agent for their advice.
