But from august would like to move in an affordable shared room with rent in range of 800-1000$ per month with everything included. Where r u from? R u moving permanently too or for short term? U should check out airbnb.com.au and gumtree initially. Let ne know what are ur plans?

Hello buddy,

Even driving license will be required if you are planning to buy in future. Its better get your license now only or else once you get the job it would be additional burden to take leaves and go for the test.

I am planning to land in Syndey on Sept 1st.

Great News. Best of luck for your future endeavors. Could you please tell how much experience do you have and in which field?
I am planning to apply for "Telecommunication Engineer", although I am project manager (Telco) and I have 8 years of experience.

Your views on this would be greatly appreciated.
