Hi everyone!

I am an engineer from the Philippines. I am migrating to Aus as a partner of an Aussie. Do I need to become a member of Engineers Australia before I can apply for a job here in Aus?

I will appreciate it if someone is able to shed light on this.

Daghang Salamat!

    Hi chikka_gurl143,

    Sang state ka d2 sa oz?

    Anong field of engg ka?

    Tingin ko hnd mo na need ng EA, many only use EA for migration purposes. Sabi mo nga mkkpnta kna dn nmn d2.

    Pwd ka nmn mgapply d2 kht wla kang EA, during interview hindi naman nila alam ang EA.

    Partner lang din ako d2 same as u. And same as u engr dn aq, mech engr s pinas. Pro up until now cleaner pdn ang work ko.

    Pro hnd nmn msma. Im earning 23aud/hr pagweekdays at 32aud/hr nmn pag weekends.

    Basta kapit lang mabuti pagdating d2, hnd madali maging partner lang.

    And pray.

    brod, kung medyo mahirap ang mag pa assess sa EA e mag pa assess ka as Fitter sa TRA.

    mahirap pa din ba maghanap ng Mech Engr sir kahit na assessed ka na? o baka sa skill/experienced mo kelangan mo irevised ang resume mo?
    suggestion ko lang brod, babaan mo kaya konti ang postion na hinahanap mo? kagaya ng operator or technician or assistant?
    Or try gumawa ka ng profile mo sa www.linkedin.com

    @dhey_almighty
    ngayon ko lang narinig/nabasa yung tungkol sa RPL, TRA kasi ang usual na hinihingi ng employers. Indi ako sure sa RPL kung gaano sya ka attractive sa mga employers.
    Pero malay mo baka pwede din ung RPL.
    Try na lang natin, balak ko din kasi mag pa assess thru RPL. nagbabasa pa ako ng mga comments dito at sa RPL websites kung papano at kung ano ang magiging benefits in the near future.

    @Milkan bro sensya ka na rin ha...ngayon ko lang nalaman yang RPL na yan ung andito na ako....if you will check sa mga job advertisement ng mga company dito, may hinahanap silang mga certain certifications...like for exampl sa akin, Cert III - Mechanical Trade, as per dun sa nakausap kong assessor, the RPL will qualify my skills and work experience which leads to a Cert III Mechanical Trade or Cert IV (Kaso mahal na yang cert IV kaya Cert III lang muna kinuha ko)

    This RPL involves a series of interview ng assessor and certain reference from previous managers/supervisors at minsan pictures pa na nagpapatunay ng skills mo...

    http://www.engineertrades.com.au/for-learners

    **though meron mga company na hinde na naghahanap ng mga certifications...still, ang hirap maghanap ng work related to our profession kaya i am thinking na magpa RPL na lang to further bolster my CV so to speak...but still i am crossing my fingers na maka-land ng job without taking RPL at ang sakit sa bulsa hehe

    ^ ive tried applying as operator, assistant and even technician roles.

    Back in the Phils, maintenance ang linya ko. Almost all around except carpentry. Mapa ac pa yan, central plant, electrical o plumbing.

    Dumating na tlga aq sa point na hndi cla naniniwala sa skills natin, unless we study here.

    Pero tyaga lang. Makukuha din ntn ang place natin d2.

    Hi @lester_lugtu!

    By saying "assessed" ka ng EA does that mean you're already a member of EA now? almost 700 AUD din kasi payment for STAGE 1 Competency assessment. That's what I am trying to apply for.

    http://www.engineersaustralia.org.au/membership/assessment

    I was thinking na baka pwede na ako mag.work kahit hindi pa ako member ng EA. And I AM NOT SURE.

    Naghihintay ako na ma.approve yung partner visa ko and hopefully once approved na pwede na ako work agad. That's my target. I'm here in Aus now as a visitor.

    @chikka_gurl143 ung assessment sa EA as engineer (Professional Engineer - Stage 1 or Level 1) is for visa processing only...i think... :-)

    **pwede ka naman magapply na as an engineer dito sa oz provided na na-meet mo ang mga requirements nila...swerte mo kung offshore ka pa at may naghire na agad sayo as engineer...meron dito sa forum na nahire even if offshore pa sya...

    ***yan din ang akala ko, as assessed din ako ng EA as prof engineer kaya ung pagkatapos n g assessment ng EA sa akin before e apply na ako ng apply agad ng job kahit offshore pa ako but to no avail...now na andito na ako sa WA, hirap pa rin makahanap ng job that suits my qualification since most of the companies here e naghahanap ng certain certifications

    ***at ang sabi nga sa akin ng iba dito na: "Its not what you know but who you know"

    Thanks for your reply @dhey_almighty! The Stage 1 Competency Assessment is for membership.

    I thought that I need to be a member first of EA before I can even apply for any engineering job here in Australia. From what you people are saying, that's not a requirement but an option.

    I have been in Melbourne since January this year. I am here as a visitor. I am actually very excited to work here in Melbourne but my partner visa has not been approved yet. So, basically, I am just doing what I can to make sure that I am ready to apply for a job once my visa is approved.

    @chikka_gurl143,

    Forget about EA, once ma-approve na partner visa mo. Hindi mo na need ng EA. Lakasan na lang ng loob ang pag-apply.

    Kung mahirapan ka mag-apply, study here 1st. Ang laking bentahe tlga kapag may oz degree ka. Kht hnd mo na isama ang lahat tungkol sa pinas.

    Ang mahalaga dito, ang oz standards.

    @chikka_gurl143,

    Pag naassessed ka ng EA hindi ibig sabihin member ka na ng EA. Kailangan mo uling magpamember. Malaking tulong din pag member ka kasi lalawak ang network mo...

    Hi @jobseeker! I am not doing a skill-based migration. I have a partner VISA in the process. I was just asking if kailangan ba akong mag.pa.member sa EA to get a job here in Aus. Anyways, I have asked a lot of engineers here and they're all saying it is not necessary. That's just what I needed to know. But I appreciate your input! ;)
