Hi all,

Anyone here has any idea about Perth/Canberra for IT jobs?
If you get an offer there......would you advise/suggest me to move there?

Regards,
Harshal.

Heard Perth is pathetic unless you are into ERP or specialising in IT for oil and natural gas. Dunno about Canberra. Heard it has a lot of good Govt. jobs to most of which only citizens are eligible To apply.

I got my PR few days back. Abt the job market in Oz, what I heard is that companies prefer IT professionals with Australian experience. So will this cause a hindrance for those who come there on PRs to find a job? I could see job postings in SEEK but lack of Australian experience is making me skeptical about whether those could be translated to a job offer. Anybody else faced such an issue?

if you are not a citizen, only Sydney and to a lesser extend Melbourne are a good place for IT with a lot of jobs. Other capitals are not even coming close to these cities.

Thanks naoto for the info..I was considering Melbourne, Perth or Brisbane as my base. Looks like I need to add Sydney and remove Perth and Brisbane, at least for now.

I completely agree with you Naato.
They are kinda skeptical about new candidates who are fresh in the market.
But I guess it's better to look at other avenues as well.
Initially I was focusing only on Melbourne but now I am looking at other locations like Perth, Sydney, Canberra etc.
