    Hello everyone.

    Share ko lang sa mga recent visa grant holders especially yung mga under Engineering occupations na bagong dating sa AU o nagbabalak mag-big move soon.

    Mahirap humanap ng work pero ito yung mga ginawa ko na sa tingin ko nakatulong sakin sa job hunting na sana eh makatulong din sa iba.

    Tip 1: Gumawa ako ng account sa Seek, Indeed at LinkedIn at inayos kong mabuti yung profile ko sa mga sites na to. Better kung comprehensive lalo na yung sa work experience part since wala ka pa local experience.

    Ang ginagawa ko pag weekdays ini-isaisa ko lahat ng job ads tapos inaapplyan ko isa-isa. Hassle lang talaga sa una kasi cinucustomize cover letter. Pero laban lang kasi mahirap talaga maka-land sa 1st job na same ng BG mo sa Pinas.

    Ang nangyari sakin pagkatapos ko ayusin profile ko may cumontact sakin na mga recruitment agency na may mga ka-tie up na AU companies. Kahit di ako nag-apply dun sa iba pero nung nakita daw nila profile ko sa sites na yan tapos may eksakto may hawak silang job openings sa companies na match sa BG ko kaya nag-reach out sila. Yung recruitment agency din na to yung tumulong sakin para makaconnect dun sa company kung san ako nahire ngayon.

    Tip 2: Iwasan mag-self reject sa job application.

    Kahit feeling mo di mo nameet lahat ng criteria pero dun sa iba eh pasok ka naman mas okay applyan mo na din wala naman mawawala.

    Yung napasukan kong work ngayon 60% dun same ng work ko sa Pinas pero yung other 40% eh talagang no first-hand experience pa ko dun. Kaya nung interview nung tinanong ako ng manager sinabi ko theoretical knowledge palang ang meron ako dun sa other 40% pero willing naman ako pag-aralan.

    Ang ending naappreciate ng boss ko na naging honest ako kaya hinire daw niya ako tapos nagprovide sila training para matutunan ko yun.

    Tip 3: Recruiters are NOT looking for a perfect candidate

    Medyo madami na ako naattendang interviews bago finally mahire at masasabi kong mas gusto nila yung spontaneous at honest answers. Nashare din to samin ng 1 speaker sa inattendan kong event ng Engineers Australia. Nung una nacoconscious din ako sa grammar ko until marealize ko na mas appreciated nila na parang conversational lang at relaxed yung flow ng interview. Di big deal sa kanila na magkamali ka okay lang na icorrect mo pag alam mong may mali kang nasabi at least di lalabas na mukhang scripted sagot mo.

    Additional Tip:

    Umaattend ako ng events organized by Engineers Australia. Pag di ka pa member, magbabayad ng 10 AUD per event pero para sakin sobrang worth it nito. Naka-attend ako ng 2 events nila. Yung una eh mock interview workshop applicable sa AU setting tapos yung pangalawa naman eh Understanding business culture. Yung mga speakers eh respected people na sa AU Engineering field. Masasabi kong madami kong natutunan dito na nakatulong sakin para mahire tapos ang dami ko pa bagong nakilala na ibat ibang nationalities tapos in-add ko sila sa LinkedIn kaya unti-unti lumalawak connections. May mga naging bago kong kaibigan tapos ang ginagawa namin nagpapalitan kami ng mga nakikitang job openings na applicable sa BG ng isat isa. Ang maganda pa eh may sub-unit yung Engineers Australia na Sydney Migrant Engineers group na tumutulong sa mga migrant engineers para maovercome yung challenges pagdating dito lalo na tungkol sa job hunting pero may mga technical din na seminars.

    Hopefully makatulong to sa mga naghahanap o maghahanap din ng work dito.

    Good luck mga kabayan!

    Nice insights actually eto dn advise ng mga ibang kaibigan ko na onshore na. Struggle talaga mghanap pero be honest relax lang at sympre make all the necessary preparations. Pati dn pag-attend ng events ng EA even ng local community. Need to do networking talaga malakas ang impact ng referral on most occassions.

    Agree sa lakas ng impact ng referral. Nashare nung 1 speaker na umaabot daw thousands narereceive nila na job applications tapos one way daw para ma-trim down yun eh unahin interviewhin yung mga applicants na may nag-vouch inside or outside the company basta same field sila.

    Not very recently but in my experience flying with PAL a couple of times, hindi tinitimbang ang personal bags and laptop bag. I've only ever been asked to show it sa check-in counter. Pero I stick lang sa policy nila about how many you can hand-carry.

    Note: Never naman ako nag-deliberately over-baggage pero hope that helps hehe.

    Yes ganyan nkapasok un tito at pinsan ko sa work. Ni-refer ng asawa ng tita ko na local (aus) dun sa boss. Yung asawa ng tita ko meron pa nman position dun sa company nya. Kaya un referral nya mejo may weight.

    Mshortlist ka lang malaking bagay na kasi un na nga nsa hundreds to thousands un applicants para sa ilang roles lang. Pagalingan na lang sa interview.

    Try to stick within the limits. So far with airlines recently (post covid), it is best to have your check in within limits. For hand carry, if it looks heavy, kikilohin ehehehe.

    For pal maluwag naman. For budget airlines, parang may comission sila? Kasi iba drive nila to measure and weigh hehehehehe.

    Salamat po! Happy for us, indeed! I actually got laid off the day after I got my visa haha! Hindi siya dahil sa visa pero nagka-massive layoff kami sa company -- very timely!

    Then after a month of job hunting, nakasecure ako ng full time work while here pa sa Pinas. May airbnb na din po ako na pagsstayan for 2 weeks then dun sa 2 weeks na yun, mag aapartment hunting na ako. :smiley:

    Hi @mariusinbrisbane congrats! Just want to ask san ka naghanap ng work? Naginterview sila kahit wala ka pa sa australia? Tips naman on pano ka nakahanap ng work kahit offshore ka pa. Thanks in advance!

    Salamat po! Sa LinkedIn ko lang po siya nahanap. Startup IT company sila based mismo sa CBD. Actually hindi sila talaga nagiinterview remotely pero for some reason when they saw my portfolio and resume, they decided to proceed with my application. Nalaman naman nilang PR na ako so mas may assurance sila. Plus, I told them na once I secure a job, magbbook kaagad ako ng flight depending on my start date.

    Regarding the tips, I actually consulted an HR based in Brisbane na pinay din na nakilala ko sa LinkedIn. Ang tips niya:

    1. Ilagay sa pinakataas na part ng resume yung work rights/visa mo and indicate na PR ka na kaagad, if PR visa ka.
    2. Sign up your number in Whatsapp and indicate na may Whatsapp na associated sa cellphone number mo. Dun ako mostly tinawagan ng employers. Dun ko nalaman na that method works haha!
    3. Instead of your address in the Philippines, ilagay na kaagad yung city and state sa Australia as your location. For example sa akin, taga Cavite ako, pero sa resume nilagay ko na "Melbourne, Australia"
    4. In your cover letter, specify na you're still overseas and you're planning to fly to Australia once you secure a job. Also specify your work rights/visa sa cover letter. Make sure na yung mga information na yun nasa pinakabungad na part.

    After doing all of these tips, after 2-3 weeks of continuously submitting, nakakuha na ako ng mga calls from employers and dun na ako nagstart with my interviews. Sana po makahelp! :smiley:

    Just to add dun sa tips, I actually got a lot of interviews from good companies. I was even interviewed for ABC Australia haha! As in, when you really take your time and just be patient with things, makukuha mo yung mga quality ones.

    Kung hindi naman kayo nagmamadali lumipad kaagad sa Australia, try finding a job while overseas muna. Know your worth and start from there. :smiley:

    Finally, so happy for you!! 🫢🏼 If you don't mind sharing, did you resign na from your job and have a place lined up na sa Melby? 😊

    Salamat po! Happy for us, indeed! I actually got laid off the day after I got my visa haha! Hindi siya dahil sa visa pero nagka-massive layoff kami sa company -- very timely!

    Then after a month of job hunting, nakasecure ako ng full time work while here pa sa Pinas. May airbnb na din po ako na pagsstayan for 2 weeks then dun sa 2 weeks na yun, mag aapartment hunting na ako. :smiley:

    Wow what lucky timing - this means you are getting severance pay during this whole time before going to AU right? Ang ganda ng situation haha

    Yes po exactly HAHA! I got severance pay + final pay + even the company laptop sa amin na haha! Grabe talaga ang galing ni universe, siya na nagbigay ng pocket money sa akin haha!

    Hi @mariusinbrisbane congrats! Just want to ask san ka naghanap ng work? Naginterview sila kahit wala ka pa sa australia? Tips naman on pano ka nakahanap ng work kahit offshore ka pa. Thanks in advance!

    Salamat po! Sa LinkedIn ko lang po siya nahanap. Startup IT company sila based mismo sa CBD. Actually hindi sila talaga nagiinterview remotely pero for some reason when they saw my portfolio and resume, they decided to proceed with my application. Nalaman naman nilang PR na ako so mas may assurance sila. Plus, I told them na once I secure a job, magbbook kaagad ako ng flight depending on my start date.

    Regarding the tips, I actually consulted an HR based in Brisbane na pinay din na nakilala ko sa LinkedIn. Ang tips niya:

    1. Ilagay sa pinakataas na part ng resume yung work rights/visa mo and indicate na PR ka na kaagad, if PR visa ka.
    2. Sign up your number in Whatsapp and indicate na may Whatsapp na associated sa cellphone number mo. Dun ako mostly tinawagan ng employers. Dun ko nalaman na that method works haha!
    3. Instead of your address in the Philippines, ilagay na kaagad yung city and state sa Australia as your location. For example sa akin, taga Cavite ako, pero sa resume nilagay ko na "Melbourne, Australia"
    4. In your cover letter, specify na you're still overseas and you're planning to fly to Australia once you secure a job. Also specify your work rights/visa sa cover letter. Make sure na yung mga information na yun nasa pinakabungad na part.

    After doing all of these tips, after 2-3 weeks of continuously submitting, nakakuha na ako ng mga calls from employers and dun na ako nagstart with my interviews. Sana po makahelp! :smiley:

    Woohooo! Ayan na syaaa~

    Salamat sa tips!

    Galingan mo dun, best of luck sa BM! <3

    Hello po, sa mga nag big move po recently under 189 visa, hinanapan po ba kayo ng travel insurance sa immigration dito po Ph? Thanks po.

    Flight ko po last > @reinrein2022 said:

    Hi all,
    Congrats sa mga na-grant and gooduck sa mga waiting :)

    Thanks din po sa mga shared tips sa whole process ng DIY visa. :)
    Granted na po kami sa 189 Visa (me and my husband) last 12 April.

    We are planning to stay in Europe for a maximum of 2 years. Lipad po kami this end of May to Europe. For the 1st entry sa Aus, kelangan namin pumasok within a year. Magvisit po kami sa Aus this May (1 week lang). Medyo hindi lang po kami sure sa mga ito:

    1. May kelangan pa po ba kami dalin sa airport aside sa letter from Immi? Or may kelangan po ba kmai gawin dun sa Immiaccount?
    2. May kelangan po ba kami na inotify regarding sa pagmove namin to Europe for 2 years? Like change of address and work situations?

    Salamat po! :)

    Hello @reinrein2022 . Share ko lang po yung naging experience ko last month. April 10 flight ko papuntang Sydney ito hiningi sakin sa airport ng IO.

    • Valid passport (at least 6 mos validity)
    • IMMI grant letter
    • PDOS sticker (naka-stamp na sa passport by CFO officer)
    • PH departure card
    • Plane ticket and boarding pass

    Additional document na pinakita ko:

    • VEVO visa check details (printed copy)

    Hahanapin po talaga yang PDOS sticker. Mabilis lang naman po ako sa IO mga 1 min lang. 189 din visa ko.

    Hello! Ano po yung PH Departure Card?
