IT (Software development) Jobs - Best places
 
Hi,

I become an aus resident one year back and I have 10 years of experience in software development using latest MS technologies. I currently in Adelaide and still I couldn't find a good job here and plans to move to some other place which are good for computing guys.

Do you work in IT or have idea about places having good demand for NET/ C# / SQL server experience guys?

I am sure Mel/ ACT is better. How about Perth?

Thanks in Advance.

Highly populated areas will be your best bet...
hope you land the best job there is.

cheers

I'm in Perth, and in a similar role (.NET and SQL).

There are a few jobs about for this, but from the interviews I had, they don't look kindly on people who are not very Australian/Western. Seems like quite a few people have been "bitten" by employing people from India (and getting very bad returns), and are now "twice shy" about following the same route.

Mel & Syd are the best places for quantity of jobs.

Yes Melbourne... it's just a matter of talent. Confidence is a big factor to look out for. If you can combine both then odds are greater, land that perfect job.

Great thread...let's have updates here.

cheers:)

software developer jobs
 
Hello everybody,

We have the same situation here, we live in Sydney, my husband is a .net developer and searching for a job, it has been 2 months he is applying for jobs that are advertised on seek.com, the recruiters keep calling, asking the same questions, and we are still waiting for any further step. I would like to know if this is the case to everybody, or there is something wrong???? why they don't call for interviews?

But why to move, if you can get interviews over the phone too. Btw out of curiosity how much are the rents in Adelaide? I am sure Mel is lot more expensive than Adelaide.

Hello

Very few people get an interview over phone being offshore . Being Onshore Helps as many consultancies want to meet the candidates before going ahead and shorlisting them.

Cheers

Hello

Are you calling them personally and trying to meet them in person . by them i mean the consultancies or agents.

I heard we need to be proactive and do it ourselves.

I am landing sometime next month and your position is worrying me . Let me know if you guys had a break through.

BTW isn't Dec-Feb a slow period in terms of business and jobs?

Cheers

Hello buzzvishwanath,

I think it's more promising now. My husband got 2 interviews within 1 week. What we realized is you need to work so much on your resume. Your resume is so important. After my husband changed it, he got more job offers and more interviews, evern the recuirters tone had changed. That's right their advertisments are not always real. But whenever they get a job offer, they will contact you immediatly.
Wish you all the best.
