    Sa AU na po ako nakahanap, pero meron po mga iba dito sa PH pa lang nakakuha na ng job. Yun mga highly skilled kasi, sa PH pa lang kinukuha na agad ng companies baka maunahan pa ng iba pagdating dito. Tama ba @ice? Hahaha. Average time po is 2-3 months, 1 month kapag sinuswerte. :) Be at the right place at the right time lang talaga ika nga. Apply lang ng madami, sigurado meron at least isa dun na tatawagan ka. :)

    Yep baka dahil po holiday. In my humble opinion, mas gusto nila andito na un tao. Although case to case basis talaga. Kapag urgent yun need, syempre gusto nila andito para makapag-start agad.

    Depende yata sa industry mo. Kung kailangan nila ng tao dahil kulang sila. Sa field namin, wala ako kilalang Pinoy na skilled migrant ang entry. Lahat employer ang nagdadala/sponsor to Australia. :)

    Sir, talaga po? Muntik nako mag US din, pero di ko tinuloy. Naisip ko mas laidback ang magiging buhay ko sa Oz. Hindi kasing toxic at busy compared to US.

    Sir, I hope you don't mind if I ask. Andami ko kilala na overstayer dyan nagtatago, wag lang makaalis ng Tate. Obama policy na po ba ang limitahan ng todo ang GC?

    Yung company ko kasi laging dinidelay yung gc processing. Parang niloloko na ko hahaha. Kaya ayun, di na ko umaasa sa kanila.

    Si Obama po anti-outsourcing sya pero parang di namn sya anti green card para sa mga nagwowork.

    Tama ka po, sobrang hectic dito at wala ng family values. Puro work work work... Sa company namin pag nagbakasyon ka, iba na ang tingin sayo.

    Sir, if you have US experience, I don't think mahihirapan ka maghanap ng trabaho sa Oz.

    Etong observation ko base sa nakikita ko at experience na rin ng mga colleague na andun na. Pag may US, Canada, UK or first-world experience, binibigyan nila priority sa trabaho. Tsaka syempre yung mga may local experience.

    Yup I agree with you sobrang hectic dyan at yung work kapag nag bakasyon ka ng matagal magdadalawang isip ka baka pagbalik mo may notice kana... just kidding...

    Here in Australia.. mas relaxing dito mag work... dipende din naman sa trabaho pero halos lahat ng mga company kapag ang employee may holiday leave hinahayaan nila. Minsan nga puede pa manghiram ng ilang days i offset na lang in the following annual leave hours. May Fairwork system ang gobyerno na dapat sundin ng mga employer

    link:

    http://www.fairwork.gov.au

    Lalo kung mag-trabaho ka sa government mas magaan. Sa oz marami din benefit at rights na makukuha at isa pa malaki ang pasahod dito pero dipende pa rin sa work. Mas expensive ang bilihin at bahay compare sa US pero affordable naman.

    Ang Australia madami adventure na mapupuntahan like camping ang mas maganda dito.

    Goodluck...

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.
