    Sino po kaya dito sa forum na currently living in Hobart?

    May mga tanong lang din ako kung paano ang pamumuhay dyan if I stayed for a few months. Sa Brisbane kasi ako manggagaling (if ever) na laidback, very friendly but modern. Kumusta po kaya dyan ang mga tao at klima?

    :)

    @Nadine. I'm here in Hobart for almost two years na. Contrary sa akala ng iba, dami pong Pinoy dito. There are two Filipino community groups dito at masaya naman ang pamumuhay dito sa Tassie, maliit lang at mura ang rent ng bahay. Medyo malamig lalo ngayon may snow sa Mt. Wellington at ibang mga higher altitude na lugar. Di naman masyadong province, pero di din cya big city tama lang, walang traffic, madami din restaurants at ibang mapupuntahan na magkakalapit lang.

    Thanks po sa input.

    Wala pa namang definite sakin. Baka hindi rin ako matuloy. Pero maganda kasi ang rotations at benefits na binibigay nila. Mas may chance for PR. At less competition pati from locals dahil konti pa ang tao. Maganda yung long-term, kung kaya ko ang lamig. :D

    Matanong ko lang po, yung Royal Hobart, yun na po ba ang pinaka major hospital ng state?

    Salamat po ulit!

    @taspinoy Hi. I just wanted to ask if there are any opportunities for mechanical engineers there? Yung mga manufacturing companies etc?
    hi maam, meron naman pong opportunity pero napakaseldom po. may manufacturing namang company like cadburry at yoghurt. gaya ng ibang industry swertihan pa din po at dasal po :)
    hi guys. anyone here can share the job marlet in hobart? mga what is the average weekly pay in hobart especially IT na mga PR. i am beginning to like tassie since i wanted to have a slower pace of life. medyo hectic kasi life ko ngayon and have been on my industry for over 12 years.thank you. :)
    in terms of weekly pay, hindi nman masyadong nagkakalayo sa mainland. at agree ako na mas magugustuhan mo dito since slower pace nga.

    nung nagpunta kami dito sa australia a year ago, i was aiming melby pero dito ako nakahanap ng opportunity at after ko maexperience dito na around 10 minutes lang ang byahe (either bus or car) magbabago din talaga ang pananaw mo at parang ayaw mo nang magpunta sa city. hindi ka pagod pagkauwe ba. :)

    maraming pinoy dito at may dalawang grupo nga. regarding nman sa opportunity, cguro 1:100 pag icompare mo sa melbourne ang opportunity pag nasa IT industry ka pero mas konti naman ang competition kung may makita ka mang opening.
    Question po: Pwede po ba mag-apply for State Nomination dito sa Tassie kahit walang employer? Ilan din po ang IELTS requirements nila? Thank you po sa info.
    let's wait po sa iba. wala po ako idea sa tanong nyo :)
