    @SapphireInsane teacher dn po ako. Have ur qualifications assessed by aitsl if ud like to pursue a teaching career in sydney. Strict sila sa english proficiency so u have to get a minimum score of 8 in speaking and listening, minimum of 7 in reading and writing and a minimum avg bandwidth score of 7.5. After that mas madali nang mafulfill ang ibang requirements as long as u're a bachelor degree holder in education.

    Hello everyone,

    I would just like to share my job hunting story and I hope I could shed some inspiration and hope to anyone who finds more challenge to land a job, specially getting the profession-related job.

    My 5-month pregnant wife and I came to Melbourne on September last year, via visa 189. I am an Electronics Engineer with previous 5 year experience in telecoms project implementations.

    I applied for positions relating to my previous role since day 1 but I kept on receiving rejection emails. Got few calls and 2 actual interviews within first 3 months but I still was not able to get a job. I was even trying my chance to get into retails but then I got my first shot at Toll People as a pick packer.

    From Nov. up to present I am employed for the pick packing role. Mabigat sa katawan yung trabaho pero tyaga lang para sa pamilya, sa hirap napatagalog ako sa pagkkwento hehe! Kidding aside, I still kept on trying to get a job in my field. It was on February 2016 when I saw an entry level position at Telstra. It is a technical associate role, project delivery ang primary focus pero kasama sa program nila ang on the job training and actual involvement sa projects.

    The whole hiring process took almost four months but I am very thankful to God because I finally got the position. It was like a battery of tests but I kept on drawing inspiration and confidence by thinking of my family, and most importantly prayers.

    My tips for everyone on a similar situation would be the following:

    1) For everyone with PR and has been in the state for less than 2 years, get your qualifications assessed thru OQU. Site : http://www.liveinvictoria.vic.gov.au/employing-overseas-talent/settle-and-retain-new-workers/the-overseas-qualifications-unit#.WUTS52h97IU

    - I would say that this boosted my CV, you can attach or include it on your CV.
    - If you were assessed by your professional body, wherein I am assessed by Engineer Aus
    as Professional Engineer, I would suggest to include the letter to your CV or application.
    This is what I did on my application with Telstra.


    2) Be positive and endure. Keep on working on any job to sustain your expenses, but try to maximize your time on applying for your preferred job.

    3) Try to expand your network, specially with the locals, you'll learn more from them.

    4) Read a lot on how employers here do their hiring processes. It will help you prepare for interviews as well as on preparing your CV.

    5) Last and most importantly, keep praying and have faith.

    Hope this post could help. Kaya natin to mga kababayan!

    Arrived June of 2016 (Settled in Sydney) and got hired as a Software Developer on August 2016. Napansin ko lang while applying para mapansin, you need to have almost the exact skills as advertised. Kahit hindi ko alam yung tech. I make it a point to include it sa CV and right after submitting my application, magbabasa ako tungkol sa tech na yun. With this nakakuha ako ng calls sa mga recruiters and nagkaroon ako ng job interviews.
    I think I had 5 job interviews (4 in Sydney, 1 in WA). I had 1 offer in Sydney and in WA. I chose WA. Best decision I ever had. The company I chose gave me a relocation and a decent salary package.

    Sa Pinas po ako galing. Nag-agency kami kasi hindi ko pa alam itong forum na ito. We went with Respall as an agent. And yes 189 po kami. Mahabang storya sa IELTS palang naka 4 na take ako bago ko nakuha yung all 7. Java Developer din pala ako. 8 years of exp (as of 2015) pero binawasan ni ACS ng 2 years.

    Phew. I'm very happy to say na nakahanap ako ng work in less than 3 weeks since I got here in Sydney. Medyo madugo talaga yung process ng pag aapply lalo na yung pag aantay kung may tatawag ba o wala. Haha. Sa mga naghahanap pa, be patient lang talaga and madaming madaming dasal.

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.
