Hi! I would like to check if there are any IT professionals here from Australia. Just want to ask what the industry is like, job market, etc.

I'm planning to pursue a Masters of Information Technology Studies at ANU (1 year program) and was hoping I can get some advice on how to go about finding a job after the program.

Thanks!

    I would suggest you to study atleast 2 years. This will satisfy DIACs minimum requirement. I did 2 year study on Masters in IT as well. It took me a while to get a job related to my course. I finished October 2009 and got the job November 2010. My student visa was supposed to expire April 2010 but because I studied 2 years, I got the Graduate Temporary Resident where it allows you to stay in Australia for 18 months to work/study/Professional Year. I finished IT sa PI and had IT experience, the problem here (1) madami competition (Indians/South Americans); (2) They ask for Local Experience (3) Visa - if they ask you about the validity of your visa and nalaman nila it will expire soon, umaayaw na sila.

    Mas maganda din magstudy ka sa State na mataas ang demand ng IT. Any questions, let me know.

    @therealaids, I did IT sa CQU in Brisbane, lahat kame International students. sa ibang UNI ata pwede mong maging classmates ang mga locals. Madali lang mag aral dito, walang masyadong pressure. Mas mura Masters dito kesa Bachelor. Bachelor = 3 yrs, 4 subjects per term. Masters = 2 yrs, 3 subjects.

    @aolee, are you in PI? If you are, pa-assess ka muna sa ACS para malaman mo kung qualified ka to nominate IT and qualified to get 60 points. You might also want to consider IELTS. Once you get 60 points from ACS + 25 points ata for IELTS (if you get at least 7.0 on all bands), mataas ang chance to get 120 points. If you need more info, happy to help.

    @aolee, iba ang work env dito compared sa SG, kung sa Sg, puro urgent ang mga projects, dito hinde. pumapasok ang mga tao ng 8 at umuuwi ng 4. sa work ko, madaming asians. madali naman katrabaho ang aussies, pero kelangan magadjust ng konti lalo na kung sanay ka sa Singlish.
    i think madami naman opening for web, pero mostly contract positions

    @bonzi Good am po, sori dami tanong. Ikaw pa lang kasi ang nakilala namin ditong dating taga sg na nakaputa dyan. :D pero ang swerte mo talaga.

    Ask ko lang sana, kasi nabasa ko sa ibang forums na ang AU daw e parang pinas na pinaganda sa lahat ng aspeto. Panu m pala macocompare ang security dyan vs s sg? Alam m naman sa sg kahit maglaptop ka sa mrt, maglabas ng cellphone sa daan umaga o gabi alam mong walang manghohold up sayo. Same rin ba ung security dyan compared d2?

    Another thing. Tungkol po sa sahod. Malaki pa rin ba take home mo dyan compared nung nagwowork k d2? Balita malaki daw ang tax kasi.

    Salamat po.

    @aolee, medyo parang pinas din dito in terms of security, mas safe padin sa SG. halos everyday me nababasa ako sa news na me nahoholdup or nahaharass kung san san ( lalo na sa me train station). so iwas lng ako magpagabi sa labas.
    sa sahod naman, mas malaki un takehome ko dito compared sa SG kahet malaki un tax. ang mahirap lng, dahil contract ako, naka-daily rate ka, so pag holiday walang sahod.
    kung di ka ma-gimik at magluluto ka ng meals mo, mas makakapagsave ka dito. (8-10aud kse ang isang meal, walang 4sgd chicken rice dito! =P)
