for those who have been employed or currently seeking for job and based in AU, what hiring process have u encountered? is it normal that a headhunter interview u & then the client on phone? what happens next? on skype or face-to-face? what could be the tell-tale signs that u are a strong candidate and will get hired? how long is the process until they come up w the decision? hired or not, do they notify? anyone?

    80% of jobs here are via headhunters. If this is your track, initial interview will be the headhunter. Second or final interview in the employer. Less than a week notification if your hired.

    If direct hiring usually they ask for a letter of expression explaining your key competencies on the positon. There's a due date when the application will be closed. After that you will be notified for a final interview face-face (panel interview). If your hired they will notified you within the day or again less than a week.

    Sharing based on my experience.

    @sohc, ganyan din ba kalakaran sa mga online sites tulad seek.com? Mas malaki ba ang tsansang lapitan ka ng headhunters dun?

    @LokiJr sa seek lang ako bro nagaapply because if you will look on other sites same advertisement lang din.

    @kenkoy yes I experienced Skype interview using webcam and mic when I was still in Sydney. I stayed there for 2 weeks until I found a place to move here in Adelaide. After Skype is a f2f interview with the employer.

    Never heard about that "dont call us". I think it's alright to call because near my desk is the HR assistant and I heard one time someone inquiring about application status.

    I encountered this question a lot "why did you move in Oz?". I tell them to earn more so I can also help more less fortunate people back in my country.

    Also if the recruiter tells you that you have a face to face interview with any employer means your one step forward or one step away from your dream job.

    @sohc: thanx for sharing.

    just the same. client called & asked some skill related questions and like the question u posted, "what made u decide to settle in AU?"

    so after ur skype interview, u flew in to SA & had a f2f interview? when was the compensation brought up, skype or f2f? thanks!

    may written exam din ba?
    ini-isip ko rin na baka may question related to "why move to AU" hehehe. so may nagtatanong pala talaga nito.

    @kenkoy salary discussion during face to face interview after Skype. Once your done with f2f interview with other recruiters the next time you receive a phone call from them they will tell you the salary right away.

    I think this was mentioned a long time ago...totoo bang may "Australian" format ng mga resume? If so, what so unique about their format? :)

    @LokiJr
    Based sa nakausap ko na dalawang Oz recruiter. They don't want reading your skills under work exp. What they want to see on the first page is like this info:

    Skills - Level (Beg,Int,Adv,Exp) - Year of Exp

    example: Exchange design & admin - Exp - 7 years.

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.
