    Hi Guys. Kakapunta ko lang dito sa brisbane. Ask lang ako tips regarding TAFE. Do you know of any course na maiksi lang at nasa Brisbane?

    Try mo sa ARC sa Fortitude Valley, alam ko may subsidy sila and meron mga short courses.

    Hi! Just wanted to share... I'm an OFW based in Qatar. I got my PR in the Year 2016 and made initial entry around Feb 2017. Thru God's grace, I was able to secure a job while still here in Qatar. I just submitted my resignation last week and hopefully be in Melbourne by end of November 2018. LinkedIn networking is what worked for me.

    Strategies I made (to be followed in sequence):
    1. Updated my Linkedin profile to have keywords related to my target work. Aim to have ALL STAR level.
    2. Increased my Linkedin connections to be >1000+ by connecting with professionals and decision makers (Directors, Managers, Business Owners) within my targeted industry. Tip: Personalise your message when connecting.
    3. Get involved and be active on LinkedIn. Follow the LI page of your target companies, like and comment on posts of prospective Hiring Managers.

    Hope this help.

    @au_me Forklift licence, first aid, white card and blue card.

    As for tips, apply ng apply wag mapili. Tailor your cover letters to every company.
    Once you get your first AU job and gained some "local experience" everything else will be easier.

    I started applying for jobs while I was still in Manila. In my resume, under location, I wrote, "Sydney Australia (Permanent Resident, July 2018)" Agree with @batman though, it's hard to get a job while you're overseas. A lot of the time, employers want you to be in the country for interviews, etc.

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.
