    oo meron daw opening doon... kayo problem is the security clearance.
    I dont know this security clearance thingy pero nitong current employer ko I was given a police clearance check detailing my last home address for the past 10 months ... DETAILED like this from this month to this month and year in this address .. or from this day to this day of the year in this country .... and a signed waiver that I give consent to the security agency to search or to obtain any information regarding my travels

    im guessing its the same thing ......

    http://www.asio.gov.au/Careers/Overview/Information-for-ASIO-candidates/Eligibility-and-Security-Clearances.html

    Eligibility and Security Clearances
    There are two eligibility requirements to hold a security clearance:

    Australian citizenship (you must be able to provide evidence); and
    a background which can be reliably verified.
    Candidates must be assessed as suitable to obtain and retain a Positive Vetting (PV) security clearance.

    The critical components of a PV are:

    financial checks;
    referee interviews;
    psychological assessment;
    other checks; and
    an interview.

    The PV clearance process is intrusive and lengthy and you must be prepared for this. Your consent is required before vetting activity is undertaken.

    You must be open and honest in the information you provide –failure to do so may impact adversely on your suitability to hold a security clearance. ASIO treats your information with respect and confidentiality; however, if you feel uncomfortable about providing detailed personal information you should consider whether ASIO is the right employer for you.

    @loudandclear

    yes mataas sya now sa pinas kasi madami demand now..

    pero minsan nambabarat din sila kapag alam nilang madaming supply.. but generally mataas talaga bigayan ng mainframe sa pinas pwera lang sa accenture kapag junior days mo pa lolz..

    sa AU naman, yes mataas din ang mainframe pero as of now, medyo konti ang demand, paisa-isa lang at kadalasan by referral pa.. sana mag mass hiring dahil sa isang malaking project or data/system migration.. :-)

New SimplyStall Mobile App!

Hi everyone!

I'm very happy to announce PinoyAu Forum's new app called "SimplyStall" . It's a new Gumtree like service for Pinoys in Australia but in a way better!

So if you have any items just collecting dust? Why not convert it to cash?

If you are selling new items or products or wish to give an item away for free then this might be a good avenue for you.

This project is a new initiative to unify and have a common portal for Pinoys in Australia to sell and share stuffs.

It's now available on Google Play and Apple App Store.

Please do try it out. I'd appreciate if you can help me spread the good news and start selling your old or new stuffs.
