I know that my parents returned to England as my mother could not bear the isolation from her family. Her husband was at work all day and she was quite young, in a very different place and struggled to make friends. My father never forgave her for making him come back to England. Now I am trying to round the circle and return to Australia and am aware that there are going to be mental adjustments to make. No more visiting stately homes and cathedrals built in the 12th century! I think it takes a lot of mental adjustment to let go of what you know and embrace something different. I am hoping I have the right sort of open mind to make it work. I guess there is only one way to find out......

From my experience there are a series of issues:
1. Family and friends - some people miss them too much
2. Jobs - or lack of. I have seen this increasing recently and could force myself out of Australia
3. Simply do not like it - This covers everything from the culture to the weather. I personally can not abide the weather.

Hi Wonderer,

A good question and some great replies already. I especially liked Aidens' reply although not his situation!

Aiden - I thank you for sharing your story in such detail. I totally agree and empathize with you.

I do believe that the chief deciding factor is landing your dream job and the time it takes to get to it!!

I do beleive that the British find it harder than most to settle into Australia.
Many British expect Australia to be so much lile Britain but with better weather.

The truth is very different and many Brits find so many things just a bit too different.

Many Brits have heard the term "ping pong pom". The reason is that we see the bad in Australia and remember the best of the UK.
We then go home and see the worst of the UK and miss the best of Australia, and come back again.
We get used to the weather eventually even if it means moving to a better area weatherwise.
Tasmania isnt much different to the UK....

Many migrants I meet are unprepared for the amount of work, effort and change that is required to be settled in Australia.
Atleast some words of relief......Its indeed the state of mind that matters. I am an expecting immigrant as Telecom Engineer and preparing to Submit EOI by next month (189 Independent).I am 27yrs and naturally have no australian experience.Anyone could put a light on my recruitment possibilities!!!

Good Day Swagata,

I am no expert but if I may add a few comments:
1)
Getting a job in Australia, especially as a first time migrant is no doubt a difficult prospect but it is not impossible. How long will it take and whether you will need to start from the bottom rung will depend on job market scene in your specific industry and of course the 'luck' factor of 'Being in the Right Place at the Right Time'.
One thing most of the migrants here will agree on is that today's job market is very challenging, even for the locals. Further, it is also a given that the first few months in a new land will most certainly be a struggle.

2)
Addressing your case specifically:
- considering your profession being in demand, you stand a better chance of getting a job.
- you have age on your side which I believe is the biggest advantage. I suggest you take any entry level job to get the 'Aussie Experience' and work your way up.Remember that there is great dignity in labour in Australia and no job or trade is looked down upon.

3)
Suggestions:
- Whilst waiting for your visa to come through, utilize your time to research as much as you can about Australian culture, the people and most importantly the job scene.
- Make sure your Linkedin Profile is up to date and dressed up.
- Understand how to write and "Australian Ready Resume" and Covering Letter.
- SEEK - Australia's no. 1 jobs, employment, career and recruitment site and careerone.com.au are some good job portals to start looking for jobs.
- Start contacting Australian employers even whilst you wait.You may not bag an offer but at least youwill have begun networking and most importantly you will get an idea of employers requirements in Australia.

I wish you all the best with the visa process and lots of success when you land in Australia.
