Sorry to hear about the postponement of the PLE exams. I would recommend that you apply for AMC as soon as possible if you can. The cost of the exams and also some courses regularly increases and it's getting more and more competitive in applying for jobs. But, if you really need to save first, I would suggest that you get into emergency medicine training as it will be useful for when you apply for jobs in the hospital.

Remittance/Exchange Rate

Sending money to the Philippines? Useful tips in selecting between providers.
claireangWht are the caveats of transferring large money to non relative (OZ to PH)?
Hi everyone! Hope all is week. Just thought to ask po sana if for example you may need to transfer say 35k AUD from OZ to a non relative person/friend in PH. Also, just thought to ask din po the following: (1) I gathered from reading online, it seems na if more than 10,000 AUD ang international fund transfer ay need ideclare because of tax (?) purposes sa OZ? Otherwise, ano po kaya risks? (2) I also gathered online, it seems sa PH, any funds in form of gifts from abroad in excess of 250Kphp within same calendar year will be taxed 6%. E.g. per table below, for 1.2Mphp money remitted, there is 950K net gift over 250K. So it will be 14Kphp + 6% x (excess over 500K = 450K)? (3) item 2 is not necessarily needed or not applicable for my situation. (4) What is the best way of carrying out the international fund transfer in terms of hindi naman maging suspiscious and magka issue sa AML law (anti money laundering law ng OZ)? I have these thoughts po kasi na since hindi blood related and hindi normal activity yung big remittance na yun e baka mapansin? Or hindi naman po yun magiging issue basta i breakdown into smaller amounts in batches yung remittance? Thank you in advance po for your time and any assistance is grealty appreciated. Kindly correct na lang po if any of my understanding is wrong. Here is the link po for the BIR taxes on international fund transfers which I saw.

Temp1Example format CV, resume and cover letter here in australia
> @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.

AdminTelstra is giving consumer and small business customers extra data
[preview] Telstra is giving consumer and small business customers extra data to support working and studying from home or self-isolating, as part of the national response to COVID-19. Post-Paid customers (both mobile and mobile broadband) can get an extra 25GB of data on their plan to use in Australia within 30 days. Pre-Paid customers with an active recharge of $40+ can get 10GB of extra data to use in Australia within 28-30 days (depending on your plan). The data won't rollover. Register your details below to get extra data. Telstra will send you an SMS to confirm once it's been applied to your account - it should take about 48 hours. It will be available within 48 hours and you'll be notified by SMS once it's been applied. Ineligible phone numbers won't receive a notification.
