I noticed a while back that some of the mining companies are looking for IT specialists for remote access systems. It seems that fewer people are now willing to move some of the remote areas where the mines are located.

Please update your flag here .

I have the priviledge to conduct interviews to recruit IT people into our company.

There were 3 people in the interviewer panel. During the interviews, my CIO was able to field out two candidates who lied in their resumes and they were mainly from Indian companies.

I am the only Asian in the interviewer panel my Aussie colleagues looked at me (as if I represent Asia) that we have to be careful because all these fake resumes. I did felt for a few second shameful for Asia but I shake it off...heck I don't represent these people who fake it !

There's a question which is popping my brain every now and then. To this date I've realized that Australian employers do check for references from your previous employers and can even go as deep as your first employment. This is more valid for a recent immigrant (like me) searching for a job and the reference check reaching employment in home country.

I've 6 years of experience and during this tenure I've changed 4 companies and my current employment makes it my 5th company. Amongst these, there is an employment which lasted for 6 months only and I did chuck off when I applied for ACS. I did it deliberately since I was still having more than 5 years of experience and it would’ve sufficed my visa application and subsequently had my ACS cleared.

Now, I would wish to know from peer expats if I should include it in my resume or not. I removed it at the time of ACS with the thought that there are number of hops in my career and ACS may be demanded while employment in Australia.

Just to share, I've all the needed paperwork for this 6 month tenure - offer and relieving letter. I've been granted the Visa.
