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.

Tinignan ko po kasi sa SOL pasok naman ang Web Dev, Web Design, Web Programming or magiging use less lang tong course ko kapag graduate ko jan? Or pili na lang po ako ng ibang courses?

    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!

    @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.

    @hikari yung sister ko may friend naman daw cya n pinay. 2 lng cla filipino pero mas close yung ate ko dun s thai friend nya. cgro may pamilya na kasi yung pinay kaya hindi masyado nakikipagkaibigan.

    Anyways, explore.;) friends ko sa uni is Indian, then nung nagwork na ako, Aussie and Irish. And may friends din ako sa volleyball na iba iba lahi. Yung friends ko na pinoy is yung filipino community sa area na tinitirhan ko.

    So, enjoy mo lang.;) malay mo makatulong sila for you to find work etc.;)

    @hikari yung sister ko may friend naman daw cya n pinay. 2 lng cla filipino pero mas close yung ate ko dun s thai friend nya. cgro may pamilya na kasi yung pinay kaya hindi masyado nakikipagkaibigan.

    Anyways, explore.;) friends ko sa uni is Indian, then nung nagwork na ako, Aussie and Irish. And may friends din ako sa volleyball na iba iba lahi. Yung friends ko na pinoy is yung filipino community sa area na tinitirhan ko.

    So, enjoy mo lang.;) malay mo makatulong sila for you to find work etc.;)

    ...maganda din international ang friends para ma practice ang English!

    Hello, buti nakita ko tong forum nato. Bihira kase akong makakita ng IT international student e mostly nursing, aged care or leadership. I'm on the processing for student visa na. Pay nalang sa school and waiting para iissue yong CoE. I graduated here as an IT Student sa Pinas pero balak ko mag pursue ng IT din sa AU. Focus kase sa networking yong curriculum which is yon yong field na gusto kong i pursue. Saan school po kayo?

    @superluckyclover , grabe yong credentials niyo Ate. Galing! :)

    Hello! Dugo’t pawis yan girl. At ilang mga buhok na nalagas sa sobrang stress hehe. Salamat ❤️

    Guys, kung mag aaral kayo, sa regional area na. Napakadaming perks at madaling mag PR. Yes, onti lang mga Filos na nag-I-IT. Bilang sa daliri talaga. Worth it naman dahil maganda ang tech climate dito.

    @superluckyclover yon din yong sabi ni @hikari if bakit hindi daw nag regional areas. May friends na kase akong nauna sa Sydney pero iba school and course. Imagine 30 years old pero grabe na credentials. Galing! :) If ever na gusto ko mag apply PR di ba pweding sa Sydney ako mag aaral pero mag apply ako ng PR sa regional areas? Reason kase bat di ako regional mahirap din daw makahanap ng work sa areas na yon.

    pro-rated kasi ang IT occup so mataaas ang points na need. ang trend ngayon is 85-90 para mainvite ka sa 189. kung kayang kaya mo ma-max lahat ng points mas okay :smile: aralin mo din pala yung ACS assessment hehe, naalala ko sabi mo diploma yung kukunin mo, so kung yung bachelor degree mo nasa sec1 or 2 then comparable to AQF bachelor yung degree mo at makakaclaim ka ng 15 pts for educ, otherwise, lugi ka kung dip lang yung kukunin mo dito sa AU kasi worth 10 pts lang sya for education tapos rerequire-in ka pa ni ACS na 5-6 yrs work xp related to your nominated occup para magkaroon ng positive outcome.

    —————————
    Ang mangyayari nyan, mag PY ka after graduation para ang skills assessment mo ay from professional year. Pero i double check mo if pwede ang Diploma Degree.

    Ang mangyayari kasi pag regional area ka mag aaral, makaka claim ka nang regional study points, 5 points din yun

    Malaki na talaga difference sa PR processing ngayon compared noon, maigi mag seek ka nang advice from a migration agent sa best actions na pwede mo gawin.

    Pero if gusto mo lang talaga for professional development, pursue mo ang studies regardless kung regional or major cities
