how hard is finding a job in Australia?

Hi everyone......
Maybe such question on this thred's subject has already been questioned by many of the forum member before me. Therefore i'm going to make it specific.

I am 28 year old, got my bachelor degree from a nat'l institute of technology in Indonesia as an Environmental Engineer. I have been working for a national oil n gas company (one of its Refinery) here in Indo for like 4 years time.

I will likely move to OZ in 6-12 months time from now in either Prospective Marriage or Partner Visa. I plan to work of course, so how likely is the chance for me to get a job related to environment (anything ranging from : land contamination mngmnt/conservation/sustainability/research)?
Do you think my degree and >> 4years experience will be considered there? Or should i take any tertiary study, any short course, any certification?

What is the alternative (other than env.related) job, a newly migrated person can find? Just for the sake of having a working experience in Australia.

Thank you all

I think you will have a good chance if you make preparations now....
Think abut your skills and then look online for suitable job in Australia.....compare your qualifications and see how you match.

I think you should also use the contacts from the oil company you are working for as an introduction to possible work in Australia.

Mining companies must return the land to nature after mining so employ environmental engineers for this assessment.
Look at local councils as well.

Hope this helps.

Thank you Robboat That answer gave me hope somehow, as i was so worried that my qualifications will not be recognized....at all

By the way, is there any website where i can actually check on whether my degree is recognized or no? Is going for a tertiary school in OZ will make any different to my chance of getting a job?

Ask one of the universities...

Murdoch in Perth, WA is a good choice......

Murdoch University in Perth Australia

Send an email to the international student enquiry address....they should be able to help you.

Since you are in the oil & gas industry. It should be easy for you to find a job. Since you are not here, try your luck in seek.com. You will get heaps of information.

Mining is slowing down at the moment, and other industries are affected.

even as pr may not get you the job you dream. There is no real job and that is why thousands and thousands of job turned contract each year. l don't think anyone ca
n stay comfortably in the same job for long because the local don't want you to.
There is more reason from government down to private sector to tend to hire just contract worker well subject ed to your qualifications but even they hire you, they can still do whatever they want with you. Get what l mean ?
