    hi @Gft_SG. pede malaman san ka nagwowork? baka may hiring sa inyo. last month kami dumating dito sa melbourne. medyo frustrating ang past weeks sa hirap makakita ng work.

    oil and gas EPC din kase ang background ko, kaso puro building services nakikita ko dito sa melbourne. tips naman or kung may maitutulong ka.

    actually, iniisip ko nang kumuha ng cert IV sa building and construction ngayon makapasok lang sa building svcs sector, kaso ndi ko alam kung step backward ba yon since bachelor's na yun hawak ko ngayon.

    meron bang ibang nakapag training na for certificates pagdating dito?

    hello boq, d na ako sa oil and gas nag wowork...structural detailer ako sa isang facade/cladding company. ganun talaga. kailangan maging flexible. kung papasok ka sa building services mas mabuti kung kuha ka ng revit training kasi halos lahat ng M&E dito naka revit na. apply lang ng apply. pahirapan talaga sa umpisa pero makakahanap ka talaga nyan.

    hi guys... as we have learned the hard way, mahirap talga makahanap ng work as an engineer here so you have to consider doing other jobs para lang magka local experience lang. so para makapagwork mismo as an engineer do I need to do the stage 1 competency sa engineers Australia? or yung stage 2? ano po yung difference ng chartered? have been reading their website kaso nalilito talga ako. thanks sa makapag enlighten sa issue.

    @piglet24 IMO lang ah, depende siguro sa Engineering field… Like may kakilala ko na ECEs andyan now… yung isa manufacturing, yung isa naman telecoms ang background.. nakakuha naman ng work agad in the same field… Pero not sure if it’s the same case for engineering jobs na should be highly-regulated so to speak like if you’re a civil engineer that will be working on construction or building maintenance.. medyo I think mas critical doon ang mga employers…

    @piglet24 not to discourage you or somebody else here, pero share ko lang. I personally know somebody sa NSW na civil engineer din work sa Pinas. actually cum laude graduate sa Pinas. pero hindi talaga nakahanap CE job sa NSW. dahil academically inclined sya, so nag-aral siya ng Accountancy. Ayon, accounting job na siya now. but his case maybe different financially kasi may 2 siblings sya na nauna ng settled sa NSW kaya nakapag-aral din sya. unlike sa case ng most of us na job talaga priority kasi baka maubos baon. be persistent lang bro. connect physically too baka may maka-refer ng CE job or stepping stone opportunity sa inyo. God bless

    Assessed Occupation: Industrial Engineer (IE 233511)
    Achieved Goal: Australia PR (Permanent Resident). Thanks God!

    ...sharpening my core gifts now...
    ...working on new, better goals...

    +1 regarding dun sa mahirap makahanap ng work as an engineer. nahirapan din kami ni misis and yung iba na kakilala kong engineer pero swerte swerte lang din at depende din sa skillset. medyo broad ang requirement nila dito, may mga chances naman ako kaso mataas requirement nila considering na mataas na din experience ko. usually kasi dito konti lang ang engineers kaya madami work.

    kinonsider ko din na magregister sa EA pero after ko magbasa ng forum regarding sa membership, pareparehas sila ng comment na "don't go to EA if its not required by your company" hehe. yung ibang company na required yung EA membership sila naman daw yung sumasagot. mukang di ko nasagot question mo, additional facts lang.

    @IslanderndCity: thanks for the info. I was actually thinking of doing other jobs too kaso can not do so right now kasi kapapanganak ko lang. So I'm trying to help hubby ang bilis maubos ng baon. Kinakabahan na ako.

    @RED: yun din iniisip ko, napapaatras ako sa expenses if we will take the route of EA assessment. Lalo napapabilis ubos ng baon. Parang magkakaheartburn na ako. Ahay. Thanks bossing sa advice.
