Fair Go!

Australia has never been a country of the "Fair Go".

It's the same as everywhere else. There is a fair "go" if you create the opportunities and take them.

Perhaps you could enlighten me as to where the "opportunities" are - after applying for over 600 "opportunities" and not even being granted an interview, my partner (a solicitor) would be more than happy to hear of them.

It's not a great time for a solicitor to be trying to find a job here at the moment (my partner had similar issues). Especially applying for paralegal jobs, I'm in Victoria and we have found that the employers just have so much choice when it comes to applicants - hundreds of people are applying for a single job. Has your partner looked into volunteering? My partner (British) did this and has most recently got a job as a law clerk in Melbourne. he had his degree assessed last year and so will now continue to study to ensure his qualifications are equivalent which will hopefully open more doors.

We have been here for over a year and the above job was the first time he had received an interview. He's been disheartened but he's used to time to further his experience - studying a language, completing an online course in business admin and doing his local volunteering.
