  1. Set up Linkedin profile, add recruiters, utilize Linkedin premium trial
  2. Prepare an Australia ready resume that will beat the automated tracking system
  3. Get a Skype phone number and start applying one month before landing in Australia
  4. Call up companies and submit your resume (even if they do not have any opening) -> this was a GAME CHANGER for us
  5. Call recruiters! - they have a wealth of information to share!!
  6. Treat jobhunting like your real job
  7. Network, network, network - need I say more??
  8. STOP WORRYING! - it's not productive and it's not good for manifesting that dream job of yours
  9. start from the bottom - apply for lower level jobs
  10. Partner up!

    @SGtoAU hello sis, is it okay to apply for a graduate position kahit 8years na ang experience? We are currently waiting sa visa grant, na isip ko lang na baka mas madali makapasok sa lower position though specified nga na graduate position.

    Very important yung #6. In most cases you really have to allocate a lot of time and exert a lot of effort sa job hunting. Try to bring as much money as you can para kampante na may panggastos at makapag focus ng husto sa job hunting.

    Wag panghihinaan ng loob sa mga rejections. Isipin lang na marami nag-apply ng trabaho at hindi lang naman ikaw ang narereject. Darating din yung tamang job para sa iyo basta masigasig ka mag-apply.

    Hi sis yes ok lang yun!!! As long as nasa same industry mo para ok ba din. Mas madali makapasok if lower position aaplyan based sa experience ng husband ko. Noong puro project manager inaaplyan nya wala ni isang tawag as in zero pero nun lower position ang inapplyan dun nag start ang mga interview.

    Tama po kayo jan!! Dapat mentally prepared sa rejections and wag panghinaan ng loob. And yun tip#6 kelangn talaga ng discipline para hindi ma distract at tuloy tuloy ang pag apply ng trabaho kasi tumatakbo ang oras. :)
