Parang gusto ko na din magprocess pa Canada nalang. Try to aim for 90 points at least. Second option ko rin po yung CA. Hehehee

Hello Australia-based nurses, I have a niece in Manila who is currently taking BSN. She's pursuing Australian nursing dream right after passing NLE. Please advise me if the following steps are feasible towards PR. 1. After passing NLE, take 3 months volunteering or employment. 2. Pass English Test 3. Process APHRA registration, take OBA/NCLEX and fly to Adelaide for stage 2 clinical examination. After passing the test and becomes Australian RN, fly back to Manila. 4. Process student visa in Manila for Master in Nursing. 5. Take Master in Nursing by Research (Honours) at UNISA. I knew she could qualify masters by research coz she’s a top student in UST Manila. 6. While taking masters, apply nursing job at any hospital in Regional Area. 7. If she can get a job and eventually get sponsorship then she could stop studying and proceed to employer sponsorship visa towards PR. 8. Or finish her 2-year masters degree so she can get enough points for State Sponsorship Skilled Migration in South Australia (where SA graduates are given priority). Your thought on this. Thanks.
> @Megger said: > > > baka mas madali kung itawag na lang mismo sa immi? > > Tinawag ko na to sa home affairs. Sabï sa akin pag nag expire mag apply na ulit ng bago kasi di naman daw nabago ang rules kahit may covid. parang unfair nmn to.. hndi man nagbago ang rules, nagbago nmn ang situation, mula sa airlines and border closure. wala nmn to sa control ng visa applicant. so parang nasayang yung visa fee kung mag aapply uli bago.

Try ko na lang ulit, sana makakuha na ng superior score. > Thank you ulit. 😊 Konting praktis nalang po and then you'll get there. Just remember po na very helpful ung mga parts na may templates (e.g. summarize written text and write essay) na imemorise kasi it will buy you more time sa mga other parts na walang template (e.g. fill in the blanks). :)

> @elson14 said: > pwede po bang magvocational para lang makapasok? Assuming mas mura, since ibang level po ang masters. > I'm think pede ka muna for Graduate Diploma/Certificate. Pero you have to note na may requirement na kailangan kang icomplete na number of units and duration of course para i-award sayo ung migration points. Nakalimutan ko na kung ilang units ang kailangan mong icomplete and ano dpat ung equivalent duration but after completing your Graduate Diploma/Certificate, you can move to the next level para ma-fill ung Australian Study requirement. :)

> @jake38 said: > Hello po. Pa-advise naman sa inyo, alam ko natanong na ito dati kaso naguguluhan pa din ako.. > > Yung panganay ko ngayon ay Grade 7 dito sa pinas. Bale sa April 2020 ang plano namin pag punta. Kung ieenroll ko siya for 2nd term, anong Year siya qualified? 13yrs old siya ngayon at 21-Dec-2006 ang bday.. nag email kasi kami sa isang high school ang reply eh “The school currently caters for students from year 8 to year 12 and as your son will be in year 7, we will be unable to accommodate.” Akala namin pwede siya as year 8. > Salamat po. dito kasi regardless ano year na ang bata sa pinanggalingan nya they will follow the age bracket kong san grade sya dapat. like for example. yung anak ko grade 2 natapos nya na sa pinanggalingan nya school. pero mag 7 years old pa lang sya. nun dumating kami sa Australia at nag enroll. check nila age tpos sabi ok. year 2 sya. so walang bearing yung grade nya previously start sya kong ano grade nag fall age nya dito sa Australia. thats per my personal experience. cheers!
Hi, for those without PR/citizenship yet, is it advisable po ba to take up a course (e.g. master’s or bacchelor’s degree) first prior to applying for AMC? Will it help to increase the chance of getting a job? thank you po

Start na po ba ang OBA? It should have started Jan pero since nag lockdown di na ako updated kung may mga nakapag-undergo ng OBA.
i> @kramkramkram said: > AFAIK, its illegal. Once you obtain Australian citizenship, you will lose your Filipino citizenship and the validity of your passport. You have to re-apply for a Filipino citizenship, then passport. i agree, @RyanJay never mentioned he's dual citizen. so technically, his ph passport is not valid.

> @maureenguelan said: > @ignorms hello, sorry late rply hnd ko agad nabasa to, > 2months lang kme s sA kse mdyo mahirap tlga maghanap dun at puro part time, so we decided to moved here in queensland, rockhampton dahil may good offer si hubby. So far good decision kme kse khit nagka covid hnd nawala work hubby ko. Oh, good then. Madami nga affected na jobs nung nagstart ang mga lockdowns at restrictions. Although resettling na ang economy ng SA, malayo pa sa normal. At oo, medyo tiyagaan ang paghahanap ng work dito. Pero once meron nang permanent job, SA is a nice place to stay. Malapit sa beaches, hills, wineries and sa madaming magagandang parks and recreation areas. And considering the situation of Covid pandemic, SA is one of the best place to be in right now.
matagal tagal na din pala tong Question na to.... Buhayin natin ulet hehehe.. Anyone working in a shipbuilding company in Perth or is there any shipbuilding company over there?

> @pissedball said: > On the first part of your CV, instead of putting your objective, make a narrative (2 to 3 sentences) of your achievement/milestone/citation from your previous company para may impact kaagad, so babasahin ng employers ang succeeding details. (it worked for me many times) > > - resume must be brief and straightforward > - don't put your photo, no age, no nationality. > - indicate your visa class. Hello. That's a good advise and my CV format is just like that. Tanong ko lang though, how would you generally describe AU (and maybe NZ as well) employment process? In terms of reaching out to prospective candidates specifically. Nagtataka lang kasi ko. Last year, I have been sending my CV to some US employers to attempt for a work visa sponsorship. I am in a niche STEM industry kaya nagbabaka sakali ako. I did receive a lot of interest from US employers and did remote interviews and I eventually received a couple of job offers from the US, but all was lost due to COVID and both offers were rescinded since H1B visas are to be processed supposedly by April 2020. I also received responses from some of the UK employers and even one from the Netherlands. With this, I am assuming my CV is ok or even good, and is in the standard of the Western CV. However, wala akong na receive kahit isang feedback or response from any AU and NZ employers. Sadyang snobs ba sila? Or may drastic difference kaya sa CV format ang AU from US and the UK CV? My CV for US and the UK was effective but I can't get its attention from AU or NZ employers. At first i was thinking mas mahirap lang siguro talaga sponsorship sa AU and NZ, so now I'm just trying to get a feedback for employability potential only, I'm not applying for a position, this is only to be used for State nomination pero wala pa rin kahit anong feedback (heck kahit man lang negative feedback wala). Medyo na put-off ako sa employers ng AU.
