    @corvinus26 mas in demand ang BIM sa sydney or melbournehi, my boyfriend and i are planning to work and migrate in aus. mga 3 years na rin kami. upon consultation sa isang agency, pasado siya for 190 visa and ako ang dependent niya. pero yung agency kasi na yun, sila na magprovide ng job offer sakanya. pinagiisipan namin if kuhanin namin kasi medyo malaki yung bayad or tyagain nalang namin mag-apply. hmm.

    @shizuoka2020 magkano sinisingil ng agency?

    19,990 aud. plus 2,000 aud if may dependent.

    @shizuoka2020 Usually pag may job offer work visa ang inaapply. Yung visa 190 is a state sponsored visa and depende sa requirement ng state, hindi naman parating kailangan may job offer para ma-invite to apply for a 190 visa.

    if yung 190 lang applayan namin, okay lang? wineweigh-in kasi namin yung offer ni agency na 190 tapos may job offer na pagdating dun. para kampante na pagdating dun sana. kaya lang partner ko lang mabibigyan kasi dependent niya lang ako.

    @shizuoka2020 Hindi lang clear sa akin kung naexplain na sa inyo ng agent yung process for 190 visa and kung kailangan nyo bayaran yung $19990 agad. Kasi for 190 kailangan nyo muna mag-apply for state sponsorship at kailangan i-nominate kayo ng state na inapplyan ninyo for sponsorship bago kayo makapag-apply for a visa. Wala pa akong naririnig na agency na makakapag-guarantee ng sponsorship. So alamin nyo rin muna kung paano na yung binayad nyo sakaling hindi kayo makakuha ng state sponsorship.

    Dun naman sa job offer, syempre mas maganda kung may trabahong nag-aantay pag dating nyo. Pero kahit saan state kayo manominate kaya bang iguarantee ng agent na makukuhaan kayo ng trabaho? I am asking this kasi baka naman ilimit nila ang application nyo doon lang sa state na kaya nila kayong hanapan ng trabaho pero baka mamaya hindi naman mataas ang chance nyo manominate sa state na yun. Iba-iba kasi ang requirements per state and meron states na magiging mataas ang chance nyo at meron din states na baka wala kayong chance manominate. I suggest klaruhin ninyo ito with the agent.

    hindi naman siya kelangan bayaran ako. installment siya and may parang timeline sila kung pang ilang buwan mo kelangan magbayad. iba iba siya kada step eh, iba iba kung magkano. maximum of 15months ang binigay nila na timeline. kakabasa ko lang ulit ng contract ngayon, assistance lang ang gagawin pala nila sa medicare, tax and bank account. pati na rin sa lodging.

    may mga applicable na state yung profession ng partner ko. nagbigay ng list of states na pwede yung engineering background niya.

    to be honest po, i believe di mo maaasahan yung agent to find a job for your partner, they will just give you an advice on what to do, where to apply, pero they cannot guarantee a job talaga...

    malaking halaga yung hinihingi nila, pero kasama sa binibili dun is yung peace of mind nyo na lahat e sila na ang mag-aalala, i would suggest putting effort in searching for ideas on how you can do this visa application on your own (DIY) :)

    madami po tayong helpful forumgoers who can give their advice on what best to do when applying for PR :)

    @shizuoka2020 family of 3 kami nung magmigrate. Nasa Php500k+ din nagastos namin, for visa190, kasama na fee for the agent. Never nangako ng work or job offer ang agent, kaya ingat sa ganong too good to be true na offer. Anyway, kung interested ka pa mag-agent, maraming legit na migration agents na onshore, cheaper kesa agents sa Pinas. Check Pinoy Au Adelaide sa FB, active ang Filipino community dun.

    Hi guys! Anybody here had a hard time penetrating the Construction sector? Pwede pa-share ng story? :smile:

    Story lang nung ka-batch ko... Civil Engr sya.. nung pagdating nya sa Sydney sabi nya may nakita syang on-going construction near sa apartment nya...

    Then kinuha nya yung nakapaskil na contact number nung contractor... nagbaka-sakali sya na may opening...

    Natanggap sya although maliit daw yung offer... pero yun ang nag jumpstart ng local experience nya and career...

    Ngayon naghahandle na sya ng mga projects to construct/renovate supermarkets and fastfood branches

    kahit may assessment na at andito na sa australia medyo pahirapan pa din makahanap ng work, unless you are very proficient in your prefession, like having a masters/ PhD at very solid experience especially in construction... otherwise maraming puti dito na makakalaban mo sa job market....

    Hi Sir @MikeYanbu !
    Just wanted to ask, any specific construction jobs na in demand ngayon? We’re on our last few months of sorting out stuff para sa BM namin, not actively looking for a job yet as we still have 4+ months to go, pero both of us are in the construction industry here in Singapore. BIM Modeler ako and Sr. Project Engineer naman ang partner ko. Gusto ko lang po malaman if we have a good chance of finding work in the same industry, say, 3 months upon arrival to Oz. & if you can share some tips na din.
    Thanks po in advance! :smile:

    Chemical Engineer ako, and working in a petrochemical company, among the fields of engineering, sa civil lang yata mataas ang chance of getting a job, if may experience autocad and designing sa pagkakaalam ko marami rami, d ko lang alam lately if bumagsak because of the pandemic, pero for sure sisipa ulit yan once ma lift ang stage 4 kasi construction and building is still on going kahit stage 4 lockdown.

    hope this helps...
