Hello all,
I want to discuss my situation with you guys and am looking for suggestions from you. I have been in OZ for a couple of weeks now, came on 175 visa. By profession I am a software engineer. I am still searching for a full time job in my profession but in the mean time I wanted to take up some casual work so that I can pay my rent etc.
So far I haven't had any luck. Where ever I drop my resume for a temp job, they immediately turn it down stating you are not qualified for this job and some say you are overqualified for this job.
I am in such a dilemma right now. Please suggest how should I tailor my resume so that it doesn't portray my engineering career. Should I put in false information about having worked at convenience stores back home? If so, how will I explain my 175 visa then? As nobody gets a 175 by working in a convenience store.
Please help, especially those who have been through similar situation.
