HI All
I have a positive ACS and written IELTS.L-8.5, R 8.5, W-6.6 and speaking 7. WIth my current score and points i can opt for State Sponsorship South Australia.

I would need help to know how easy/difficult it is to land in an IT job in SA. My skilled nomination category is 263111- Computer network and systems Engineer. I have 6+ years of exp in Networking and telecom Domain( avaya) . Currently it shows high availability in this domain

Please suggest do i go for SS or write IELTS again so i get 7 in all bands and eligible for 189 subclass.

Hello, you're probably only the second avaya admin i've seen here. I work on Avaya as well. I would suggest you to try and increase your Writing score which would allow you to go for 189 instead of 190.

Avaya jobs are mostly centered around Sydney/Melbourne with Sydney having a majority of jobs. AACC is in high demand with Avaya interaction center, AVP and other call center apps.

I never gave thought to jobs in Adelaide but you can check in seek.com.au.

It is nice meeting someone from your own field of work(you can use as much jargon as you want with them) . :tea:I work on both Avaya CM and Nortel CS1k and my wife is a teacher :)

BTW , which consultant have you chosen for your process??

Let me know if you guys need any help.

Do you guys currently hold any certs? I am planning for ACIS-CM/AACC and then if possible ACSS-CM , have you guys chosen any certs and if so how do you plan to study for them? I guess if you are an Avaya employee you can get them at a heavy discount but for the rest of us they are very expensive.


On IELTS i studied at Princeton review , they are pretty good. I used online material as well.

I envy you Avaya guys , i have to shell out 65K INR for ACIS training. Avaya university courses are available but its like you can only do them through your company if you are outside Avaya.

Thanks , please let me know if you get any dumps or training material. can you please send me a PM with your email address.

Moving to South Australia as a Network Engineer (Need to know Opportunities)

Hi All,

I am also from network data & security domain. Could any one please advice as how is the market there in Australia for network data & security engineer. I am planning to travel around Feb.
Hi Sdnath,

Have you had any luck yet? Have you landed or still planning on getting a job mate? I have just received my 190 grant for South Australia. I'm planning on going to Adelaide.

My visa field is as a Network Analayst '263113'. Appreciate you giving some insight and some job hunting related experiences. Look forward to hear from your end as I also intend to apply for jobs and move ASAP.

Thanks.

I hope you are aware that Adelaide is a relatively small city of round 1 million people in the middle of an extremely empty state. It is also suffering from one of the highest rates of unemployment in the country as they are losing a lot of major industry. It stands to reason that employment opportunities are going to be far more limited than in Melbourne or Sydney.
If you are going, just be prepared for it.

Hi TheDreamer,

How about you. Also could you share the certification which has good demand in field of networking.

Sorry I do not work in IT. It did take my family member nearly six months last year to find a position in IT after working in Europe for a few years. That was in Sydney, I was just answering the thread query, being are there less IT companies in Adelaide. Yes there are less because it is a quarter the size of Sydney and Melbourne and unless it was an IT hub (which it is not) common sense would tell you there would be a lot less companies.

Could you share me the domain that your relative is in IT and for which he had to wait 6 months for a job.

Hope you guys have settled with a decent job in Australia by now. I am too looking at 263111 CNSE. Could you guys please help me with the work-ex format more suitable to this SOL category ?
PM or reply here if you or anyone else visiting thread. Your valuable inputs may help!

Networking might be a nit harder. Something like ICT Support Engineer or Systems Administrator is a bit more broad in what you do, so will be easier to find a job in that field. I don't think they'd have all these ICT jobs on their SOL with high availability if there weren't any jobs available for them.

One of the reasons I want to go to Adelaide over Sydney or Melbourne is the size, and the the average house price in Adelaide is half that of Sydney and 2/3 that of Melbourne.

> Once visa is granted under 263111, we can look for jobs in any other category for instance, as you suggested ICT Support Engineer or Systems Admin. or any other

> More than home, i guess, you should look at career opportunities unless i am missing something.
