Hi All,

I am having around 5 years of experience in Java/J2EE technology. I am in Perth, since one month, and have been trying to find a job in my domain. I don't see much response from anyone without local experience. Even if there is they look for Australian citizens for some security reasons. I am looking on seek for job openings.

Any help/suggestions from anyone?

You are obviously applying for governmental roles. These are restricted to citizens. You should seek employment in private sector. I don't understand fascination of some immigrants with government positions.

Hello NeedInfo,

Welcome to Perth!
I had a similar problems when looking for a job in my line, as i also did not have any local experience. And also, got very few calls.
One of the reasons, was that my CV which I was sending out, was not crafted to the Aussie standard, and i included lots of information, which was deemed required back home where i came from, but were not really necessary.

I made some adjustments and exluded some other information, and after sending the newly adjusted CV, I've got a 50% increase in calls for interviews.

Search through the net for examples of drafting a Aussie CV, I'm sure it will increase your chances.

Hi Naoto,

I think you got my point wrong. I am not only applying for jobs which are meant for citizens. Obviously I am applying for all available jobs which suit my profile. My concern was about people asking for local experience without interviewing the candidate!

I hear it's common for employers to ask for local experience. Are there any contract or temp jobs you may take in the meantime? Even if for 9 months, at least you can get the local experience that way. best wishes!

It may also be worthwhile to register with a good agency and have an agent represent you. Agents will have a lot more jobs on their books and this will significantly increase your chances of finding a new position But as others have stated, that dreaded 'local experience' always comes up.

The first job is always hard to find but once you get your foot through the door, the next job will be a significantly easier to find. Push comes to shove, you should consider doing a few months of volunteer work in your field, just so that you can get some local experience and reference.

Maybe you can make yourself a small website or blog (on com.au) where you show your skills and past project? This can add to your reliability. You can mentioned it in your CV.
Hi Everybody here,

It will be really great help to me if some one can guide me...
Thanks a lot in advance.

Interesting fact, you can't register a .com.au domain unless you are registered as a business, only found this out recently when a friend of mine had a bright spark and wanted to secure the domain name...

.com.au and .net.au Australian domain name registration eligibility

Good luck with the good hunt, will hopefully be joining you guys end of next year!!!
