IT Student

Hi po.

New guy here.

Question lang po. Bakit wala masyadong topic about IT students? Konti lang po ba mga programmers and IT specialist people na nag-aaral sa Australia?

I'm currently processing my requirements na. Web Developer/Web Programming po yung course na kukunin ko sa TAFE.

Hindi po ba maganda ang IT course jan at mahihirapan po ba ako makahanap ng job jan after or during school?

Thanks everyone!

    Hi! I am an IT graduate. Yes, onti lang ang mga Pinoy na IT international student lalo na yung technical courses. Ako lang ang Pinoy back in 2015 sa La Trobe Uni.

    Hindi mahirap makakuha ng IT job dito after graduation, make sure na mag stand out yung portfolio mo at maghasa both soft and technical skills.

    During school, bihira dahil 20 hrs max lang a week right? Pero I am pretty sure may tumatanggap. Sa current workplace ko ngayon, may international student kami pero sobrang galing nya talaga sa programming.

    Karamihan ng mga Pinoy dito ang kinukuha ay Nursing or Aged Care.

    IT nako dito after graduation, nakakuha naman ako ng work related sa field. Double check mo yung Web Devs, either nasa regional occupation list sya or sa short term list. Double check mo pa din.

    Try kong i-retrieve, ang SOP ko from 4 years ago pa baka bago nang guidelines ngayon. Tambay ka sa Student Visa channel, pretty sure maraming tips for SOP dun.

    All the best!

    @Crayon_ IT rin ako.=) Nagmasters ako dito sa Melbourne s CQU. 2 lang kaming pinoy s batch namin sa Software Design and Development, pero may mga nakilala ako na nasa Networking at Bachelors.

    Honestly, mahirap maghanap ng work na IT related, but I was lucky enough na makuha na Technical Support sa isang Website Hosting and Development company. Kung nandun pa sana ako, pde sana kita irefer kasi tumatanggap kami ng Intern dun. Nakalipat na ako 1 year ago, and as far as I know, outsourced na yung IT Technical Support nung company na yun. Not unless naghahanap pa sila ng developers and programmers, which is in-house naman.

    Ang problem lng ng Web Developers ay walang visa 189 for it. NSW and SA ang viable options mo for State Sponsorship.

    @frisch24 Kuya, ano po difference ng 189 and 489 visa? Bakit po walang 189 visa ang mga web developer course? Dapat po ba ang kunin kong course is pasok sa 189 visa? Thanks kuys!

  • frisch24frisch24 Victoria

    @Crayon_ 189, 190, 489/491 are all Permenant Resident Visas. the only difference is yung state limitations.

    189 does not have any state limitation, ibig sabihin, kahit saang state ka sa Australia pde magwork at tumira.

    190 is given by each state meaning, you have to stay (work and live) sa state n yun within that number of years.190 allows you to work and live both in Metropolitan and Regional areas.

    489/491 is given by the state, ult, but limited ka to a certain regional area, hnd ka pde lumipat ng region or state or even find work s Metropolitan area. Metropolitan areas are Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane and Perth. So for example, 489/491 ka sa region ng Geelong dito sa Victoria, kelangan sa Geelong ka nakatira at nagtatrabaho. Hnd pde sa Geelong ka nakatira pero ang work mo is nsa Melbourne. But same with 190, that is only for a certain number of years, then pde ka na rin lumipat ng region and state.
