    Hi @vhoythoy, just want to seek advice from you since you're an internal auditor there in OZ. I was an external auditor in a big 4 firm here in PH for 3 years and will about to start an IA position in a private company. I've been wanting to go to OZ for better life and working conditions and I was hoping to land an opportunity in IA as well. I just want to seek advice how I can make this happen granted the struggles (i.e local experience, transition from EA to IA, job opportunities). Have you also considered immigrating to other countries other than AU before (like Canada, US 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.
