Hello po,
Question po. Medyo malungkot lang kasi ako ngayon or depressed.
Kaya po ba ako nahihirapan maghanap ng work dahil wala pa ako sa Aus? Parang nato-trauma na tuloy po ako. Tingin ko po magaling naman ako or marunong. 11 years na din ako nagwo-work sa field ko.

Pero ayun parang nanghihina na loob ko tuloy na pumunta sa Aus. May family pa naman ako.

    Hi @LakiMasel - actually, ako rin nagtrtry mag-apply and submit application via seek.com.au..First application ko, turned-down. Iniisip ko, dahil kaya wala ako sa AU? Feeling ko kasi kapag nakita na nila philippine number nilagay ko..di na sila nag-eentertain. Ganun kaya iyun?

    I've tried to call and talked to some head hunters in Australia. Sinabi ko sa kanila I'm interested on the position that they post in seek.au, then sinabi ko din na andito pa ko sa Pinas but I have already a PR visa and be there on March or sooner if they will hire. Ang sagot usually skin they preferred na andun na yung applicant sa Australia kse if the applicant is qualified they usually conduct an interview the next day when they contacted the applicant and also yung iba nmn immediate yung position so in one or two weeks daw ang start. So you need to take the risk talaga, but according to a friend of mine, meron at meron kang makukuha job in time. Just be patient and of course pray harder. PDe din nmn mag part time job muna dun or any job muna....

    @LakiMasel
    Wala po ba nagre-reply kahit sa email? Usually kasi meron online exams na ibibigay sayo or arrange an interview sa skype. Madami na naman paraan ngayon. Or possible din sa format ng CV mo and cover letter. Nagsu submit ka po ba custom cover letter sa bawa't ina-apply-an mo? IMHO, nakikita ng mga recruiter sa application pa lang yun personality nun tao let's say generic na CV at cover letter lagi ang pinapadala. Or possible okay ka pero nabibigyan sila ng maling impression based sa application mo.

    Try mo po change, or look for ways na mas maging attractive un CV and Cover letter mo. Worth a try diba po? :)

    @LakiMasel , Migrating to Australia as Skilled Migrant is really a big risk, but it's worth taking. We, a family of 5 arrived in Sydney in 2010 with no known relatives anywhere in Aus, only a friend of a friend. We already have a life far more better than we used to have in the Philippines, let alone the very rewarding jobs me and my wife had before we moved here.

    Four of my officemates in PH also migrated here couple of months after us, and they all have a better life here too.

    For me, I'm a cautious optimist...so tutal marami ka inaalala, have a back-up plan as well. Yun bang pag hindi umubra tong plano, may isa ka pang course of action. Nakaka-gaan ng loob yun para sakin hehe

    Hello po,
    Nagonline exam na din po ako, dalawang exam po. Tapos siguro 4-5 recruiters na yung kumakausap sa akin sa akin sa Skype. Pero ayun, ang dahilan po nila ay andito pa ako.

    Medyo may nababasa po kasi ako na overseas pa lang sila ay nakakuha na sila agad ng work. Kaso nakaka depress lang kasi...

    Well imaginin mo na lang Yung feeling ng mga andito na pero searching pa rin (read: me). Although paulit-ulit ko naririnig from recruiters and HRs na babalik sa normal ang lahat come February. To err on the side of caution though, bring as much funds as possible.

    May nagsabi din po sa akin na by February po ay babalik na sa normal. Sabi kasi nya nasa holiday mode pa po at planning yung mga ibang employers.

    Kasama mo po ba ang family mo po?

    I brought my wife with a baby on the way. Had to also leave a stable job and life in Dubai. There's no future for us there - forever ofw. I had to man up and take the risk. A minor speedbump in exchange for a better life for my firstborn is worth it.

    Ako naman po..I ask the recruiter bakit ako na turned-down agad. Mabait naman at sinabi na dapat may Australia qualification ako or alam ko Australia accounting standards. Pero keep parin daw niya resume ko for future reference...In a way..nakatulong sa pagdetermine ko kung tama ba resume format ko. Kaya..apply nalang ako ng apply..tapos learning nalang kung ano mga mangyayari.

    It is true that employers and employment agencies would normally not consider pursuing your application process not until andito na kayo sa Oz. I suggest keep your options open for other jobs, like start with temping jobs which if your lucky, company will finally hire you permanently. Dont Lose hope if you've been rejected with your applications. Believe that for every rejection, it leads to the job that God handpicked for you! Settling to a new country is definitely not easy...but is rewarding once you overcome that stage...Good luck!

    Put it this way: getting a new job is difficult. Period. Regardless of where you look.

    Unless you're one of a kind or have friends in high places.

    Tyagaan lang talaga sa pagaaply. Update your resume sa mga jobsiters like monster, efinancial careers, recruit.com, jobstreet , etc. make it searcheable. Submit2 lang submit and be patient. Also resume to Headhunters and Company's resume bank.

    Nasa timing kasi ang pag-aapply. Minsan kahit sobrang qualified ka kung wala naman available jobs talga or marami kang kasabayang mas maganda credentials syo mahirap talaga. Minsan naman, may urgent position hindi ka naman nagapply. naghahanap ng work. Konting dasal ang swerte. Importante rin networking sites like Linkedin.

    Keep positive lang. Goodluck sa lahat =)

    Huwag ka nang malungkot kabayan...Lakasan lang ng loob yan...Minsan kailangan pagdaanan natin ang hirap para kapag natanggap na natin ang kasaganaan ay matututo tayong pangalagaan ito(naks tagalog na tagalog pala ako :-)).

    I understand your situation but migrating is something na kelangan mong paghandaan emotionally, spiritually and financially otherwise baka sa halip na magandang buhay ang mangyari sa iyo dito e puros lungkot at pagsisisi.

    Ramdam na ramdam ko ang situation mo kc ganyan din ako noon. Kaya nga I decided to offer my place to those who are coming here as temporary accomodation for them not to spend their money right away coz hindi guarantee ang pagkakaroon ng work kaagad agad dito.

    Yung mga binaggit ng mga kababayan natin sa itaas, all of them are true but it does not necessarily mean na it will happen to you. So have faith and rely on God's favour. This kind of situation is something that we need to lift up to the Lord. I am sure His plan is perfect for us. We will struggle but this is for our own sake....

    Jeremiah 29:11-12 For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you.

    Huwag ka ng madepress...tayong mga pilipino ay matatatag..Iyan ang mga katangian natin, kayang harapin ang kahit na anong trials.

    God Bless.

    Nasa States pa po kasi ako eh... :( Yun kaya yung dahilan? Nagsimula po ako 2-3 weeks ago po...
    Actually in my opinion, 2-3 weeks is not enough. dito nga sa SG one month nakapost ang listing ng work then after ng closing date dun pa lang sila magshortlist. minsan nga it takes 3 months (dito sa SG) bago sumagot yung inaapplyan mo.

    I saw that its almost the same may closing date din sila sa AU. so expect mo after a week ng closing date dun pa lang magtatawag.

    Dont despair.
