I worked hard and intellegently to find my first job here in sydney. Few months back i posted my first part of struggle. With relentless effort, I finally made it. I was hugely benefitted by this forum. As a small token of my thanks, I would like to share with you all the strategies i believe would definitely help in getting job.
Like every thing else i dont claim they are perfect but they worked for me and hope it would work for you as well.

Hi Ashish:

I read the blog and speaking as a local employee you are spot on. Good job.

:clap2:

Most important: Communication and Confidence

Yes, plenty of candidates in AU so unless the skill is rather unique offshore candidates are not sought.

If an AU employer can hire someone in country, get that person working within 2 months and a bit of training they don't really have to go outside the country and spend more than that time to find someone.

It's only very few industries that routinely get candidates from offshore, two I can think of are Mining and Nursing.

From your point of view is it 90% impossible to find a job offshore?

Oh boy, looks like my internal-transfer card with this MNC is getting heavier with each passing moment. I don't like that - like to hedge options :-/

Oh, well, Que Sera, Sera!

Hi,
I got job after exactly 61 days of landing in sydney. My wife already had job before she arrived since she is a medical professional.
As pointed out correctly, Unless one is in very high demand (nursing, doctors, mining) getting job offshore is uphill task. Its very unfair to put a percentage tag on how diffucult it is :)
It depends on luck, knowledge and most importantly the demand

I am confused as to why it took so long to get a job? I got an office job within 2 weeks when on my working holiday 2 years ago. In England I have never been unable to secure employment within a couple of weeks. Is it because you are looking for a specialist role which hardly ever comes along?

Many Thanks

Ashish-
Nice job on the blog tips. I think you are quite lucky get job in "Embedded" in 2 months. On the other day I was reading post of a migrant Architect from some Euro country with 12 yrs of experience in embedded and couldn't land a single job from past 15 months. There's very less "embedded" work in Aus.

Your tips are quite real and true. Good work

Sorry guys but I removed the link to the blog.

It's specifically against the rules to promote your own stuff (otherwise we'd all be doing it) but there is nothing against writing your stuff on this forum and then putting a link in your signature back to your blog.

I hope that this makes sense (and if not drop me a PM and I'll explain in more detail).

Regards,
Karen
