    Share ko lang pala yung experience ko guys. May interview ako noong isang gabi over Skype. Palagay ko nasagot ko yung mga tanong nila dahil confident ako na alam ko talaga.

    After the call, di nila naibaba yung phone. Parang customary na kasi sa akin na antayin ko muna ibaba ng kabilang line yung phone bago ko ibaba lalo na sa mga interviews or pag kausap ko boss ko. Nadinig ko yung isang kausap ko na "I can't understand what that bloke is blabbing about... the accent man, the accent".... tapos binaba ko na yung Skype call.

    Feeling ko nadiscriminate ako... Imagine, nagwo-work na ako dito sa States ng 4-5 years. ALam ko iba ang accent ng American English sa British English pero it does not mean na hindi nagmi-make sense ang sinasabi ko. Mataas ang grade ko sa IELTS (pwera lang writing hehehehe!)

    Nalungkot ako sa nangyari but I just shrug it off. Affected pa din ako ngayon pero iniisip ko it's their lost, not mine. :D

    Saka ang plan ko pa naman ay next year na lang pupunta doon so parang OK lang.

    Pero grabe ang discrimination eh noh.



    Everywhere in the world there will always be discrimination; it is how you react that will matter the most...

    Case in point:

    (5) I could go on and on...

    Naku kabayan, yang accent accent na yan ay talagang malaking factor din ditto.american accent daw tayo sabi nila..American accent if u gonna ask me e malinaw na ingles.dito Australian accent.hirap intindihin.ganun din sa kanila, hirap nila tayong intindihin.....mag start k n ring manood/makinig ng Australian movie habang naghahanda ka dyan para masanay k n magsalita ng Australian accent...don't think that they are discriminating you. They are just being honest sa assessment sa iyo...
    there is always discrimination anywhere..good na Hindi ka naapektuhan nito.

    BTW they have a different perception sa America..it is not the way how pinoy see America.....

    Laki masel, open lang po sana... hindi po discrimination yan... because the remarks was "I cant understand the accent" and not "I dont like his accent".
    In one of my volunteer works, which provides me the opportunity to communicated with people from different culture, napansin kong may Aussie na hindi familiar with American accent.

    In one of the Asian country Ive been to, so nag stay ako sa hotel, I watched HBO. Tinanong ko yung waiter na nagdeliver for room service, sabi ko, I noticed magagaling kayo mag english, how come may english subtitlies pa ang HBO? sagot nya... "Madam, hindi po namin naintindihan masyado ang american accent, hirap po namin ma-intindihan" So pag American movie may english subtitles but if british wala. I was suprised! but it opens my mind to a different point of view.

    On the other hand, hindi uso rto discrimination specially sa workplace. Delikado sila, sensitive ang mga tao rto sa mga ganyan, malaking kaso yan and penalty if nareport cla.

    @Sushigurl Ang cute naman nun. Ang English movies may English subtitles. Nung bata ako nagtataka ako kung bakit may Chinese subtitle yung mga Sunday morning Chinese shows. Yun pala magkaiba ang Fookien sa Mandarin. Pero English?

    well for me kahit English movie, naghahanap pa rin ako ng subtitles... lalo na kung British accent movie like Harry Potter or James Bond... kasi nga sanay tayo sa American Accent.

    @Metaform : Yes, Metaform, hard to believe dba? Eye opener lang yan...
    If you pm me, I can tell you that country in private, yoko masabihan na racist.
    And yes prang Fookien and mandarin, ang written words nila pareho although when
    spoken it sounds different. sa mga hindi sanay, syempre naiirita, they are supposed to
    enjoy the movie and not to pause every now and then to digest what is being said.
    So nilagyan na lang ng subtitles pra walang problema.
    On the other hand, I got a Ph friend, who doesnt understand what Hermoine is talking about at Harry Potter. prang ganun ba.

    @Sushigurl I concur. Dalawang Harry Potter movies lang yata ang napanood ko because of the thick accent. Actually marami ring types ng British accent. Iba yung sa HP iba rin yung sa officemate kong Welshman. Tinawanan rin nya ako nung sinabi kong hindi ko maintindihan si Harry Potter.

    @Metaform Agree...Walang problema naman kasi sa atin...kailangan lang natin din unawain na nasa bagong bansa tayo. Maraming factor bago tayo iconsider ng employer. Kelangan lang po siguro natin e mind setting.Ano ba ang pinaka purpose natin sa pagpunta sa bansang ito? Maghanap ng trabaho as in OFW or to stay here for good? Kung OFW, e talaga ngang dapat na magkatrabaho kayo agad agad kasi what's the point na pupunta kayo dito. Kung stay here for good, give yourself the chance to know and adapt sa lugar . Hindi naman po lahat ay nagkakaroon agad ng work na related sa course nya, pero wala po akong nakita ditong filipino na hindi kumain o wlang tirahan dahil wala ng pera.Kung mangyari man yun, maybe masyado tayong mapili sa trabaho.Kasi ang daming work na pwedeng pagkakitaan....Hindi madaling mag-adjust pero I assure you, it's worth it.Lalo na sa bumubuo ng pamilya...Malaki ang sweldo o maliit, kaya mong maenjoy ang mga bagay na mayayaman lang nakakaranas sa Pilipinas.

    Never na pumasok sa isip ko na titira ako dito sa ibang bansa.Makabayan po kasi ako.lol
    In fact after my three months here in abroad, umuwi ako ng Pinas.Hindi ko matanggap na hindi ko napapractice ang pagiging engineer ko dito. But someone reminded me, na magkavisa ka lang e napakalaking blessing na.Hayun bumalik uli ako...But with different attitude. Mag aaral ako kung kinakailangan or papasok ako ng libre sa engineering company para lang mapatunayan sa kanila na may kakayahan ako....Naka adjust din naman po ako. :-)...

    Kaya huwag po kayong panghihinaan ng loob,,kaya nyo yan.Minsan pa nga yata hindi maganda nakakarinig ng negative stories..nakakadiscourage minsan he he he...What I can advice is close your eyes..listen to the desire of your heart. then think what is the worst thing that might happen to you when you follow your heart...can you handle it or not? If yes, GO Go Go na and dont listen to anyone. Just pray! If you are not ready, wait na lang kayo until you become ready.

    God Bless po sa ating lahat..
    @vangievc natuwa naman po ako dito sa nabasa ko. It gives me hope. Medyo daunting talaga ang magmigrate tapos di ka sure how soon ka makahanap ngwork.

    Migrating isn't easy but time flies. Sooner or later you will overcome all those challenges just like other migrants. After a year of living in Oz or possibly few months you will say that it's worth it..just don't quit. :)

    Share ko lang pala yung experience ko guys. May interview ako noong isang gabi over Skype. Palagay ko nasagot ko yung mga tanong nila dahil confident ako na alam ko talaga.

    After the call, di nila naibaba yung phone. Parang customary na kasi sa akin na antayin ko muna ibaba ng kabilang line yung phone bago ko ibaba lalo na sa mga interviews or pag kausap ko boss ko. Nadinig ko yung isang kausap ko na "I can't understand what that bloke is blabbing about... the accent man, the accent".... tapos binaba ko na yung Skype call.

    Feeling ko nadiscriminate ako... Imagine, nagwo-work na ako dito sa States ng 4-5 years. ALam ko iba ang accent ng American English sa British English pero it does not mean na hindi nagmi-make sense ang sinasabi ko. Mataas ang grade ko sa IELTS (pwera lang writing hehehehe!)

    Nalungkot ako sa nangyari but I just shrug it off. Affected pa din ako ngayon pero iniisip ko it's their lost, not mine. :D

    Saka ang plan ko pa naman ay next year na lang pupunta doon so parang OK lang.

    Pero grabe ang discrimination eh noh.

    Share ko lang pala yung experience ko guys. May interview ako noong isang gabi over Skype. Palagay ko nasagot ko yung mga tanong nila dahil confident ako na alam ko talaga.

    After the call, di nila naibaba yung phone. Parang customary na kasi sa akin na antayin ko muna ibaba ng kabilang line yung phone bago ko ibaba lalo na sa mga interviews or pag kausap ko boss ko. Nadinig ko yung isang kausap ko na "I can't understand what that bloke is blabbing about... the accent man, the accent".... tapos binaba ko na yung Skype call.

    Feeling ko nadiscriminate ako... Imagine, nagwo-work na ako dito sa States ng 4-5 years. ALam ko iba ang accent ng American English sa British English pero it does not mean na hindi nagmi-make sense ang sinasabi ko. Mataas ang grade ko sa IELTS (pwera lang writing hehehehe!)

    Nalungkot ako sa nangyari but I just shrug it off. Affected pa din ako ngayon pero iniisip ko it's their lost, not mine. :D

    Saka ang plan ko pa naman ay next year na lang pupunta doon so parang OK lang.

    Pero grabe ang discrimination eh noh.

    If they find it difficult with Pinoy accent, what more the Indians?
    From your comment, halatang racist ka... :)

    Try to cut that, no room for that in Australia!!
    its not being racist.. totoo naman na mas mahirap intindihin ang mga Indians.. what's so discriminatory with that?? it's a fact

    Just try to avoid making those statement... Just believe me, I have worked before in a country that is full of Indians - when you make some statements regarding their accent, they find it offensive! :)

    Payong kaibigan lang, no harm naman if sundin! ;)

    Just my 2 cents, you shouldn't feel degraded or discriminated about this, if you think about it, you should pity these two, because outside AU no one else can understand them nor can they understand anyone else. You passed IELTS easy with high marks as you mentioned that itself attest to your capability, don't let others put you down. Nde naman biro yung mga pinagdaadan at inayos mo to get a migrant visa. Trust on your skills kasi you wouldn't get a visa if you're not capable. Just shrug it off and move to the next interview. It's their loss...

    i agre with ruguez,when i come here i struggled also with their english accent,and i think most of the migrants is also experiencing that when they came here,i just remember one of the ielts speaking review instructor said,understanding the speaking accent of the native english is an art rather that science,it's an art that you can develop...and it's true na kawawa this 2 auusie because if they can't find a local to fill the position they need what are their option...?it's only mean that this 2 auusie did not travel outside australia because they understand the different english accent....maybe they will have troubled finding a good and hardwork employee in the future if they are not keen to understand the language itself....and to you..keep it up,it's not the end of the world,maybe there is a good and rewarding job waiting for you....remember"god is working for the good of us.."

    "god thank you for everything!!!!!1

    Re: accent. One interviewer I spoke with over the phone kept asking where I studied because my accent was not typical to that of Filipinos. I researched and found out Aussies find the American accent refreshing and quite likable. So nood lang ng nood ng HIMYM, NCIS, The Walking Dead, Suits, etc. but do not forget to learn to adapt to the Aussie accent as well.

    I read somewhere that referrals are a huge help in getting a job there. If that's the case I guess it will help if you contact some Filipino communities there?
