Smile Hey, y’all meet another friendly neophyte...

Hello everyone. My name is Adam Borzy, 33 years old. I live in Gold Coast, QLD. I spent my career in the field of horticulture and landscape construction. For a long time I love all the greens the earth has to offer and discovering new places to go. In other words, I enjoyed gardening and camping so much for a long time. My passion are but not limited of course to 4x4ing, tennis, golf, or anything outdoors regardless if it’s a suburban backyard or the outback. Just doing the usual things a normal person like you would do I guess.

I am here with the intention of joining your helpful and friendly discussion forums. Just like a normal person, I hope to hang out, talk and meet others with similar interests like mine, share my own opinion, advice, suggestion or information with everyone and to ask questions and of course, get the answers I need.

Hope to hear from you all soon

Hey John S:

As far as work in QLD, it's a bit quiet at the mo! I'd suggest taking a look on:

SEEK - Australia's no. 1 jobs, employment, career and recruitment site
Electrician Jobs in Queensland | Indeed.com.au
http://jobs.careerone.com.au/v-const...ueensland.aspx

You'll also need to apply for your QLD electrical license and maybe (depending on where you're coming from) may need to take a trade test and/or get your qualifications validated.

Here are a few other sites which may come in handy:

Electrical licence search
Licence Recognition
Australia Visa and Immigration Services - National Visas
Welcome to ETU | ETU
Electrical safety - Department of Justice and Attorney-General

And if you're thinking of self employment:
Electrical Contractors Licence Qld ? Information on applying for your licence

Just a couple more things:
I was checking out recruitment companies recently, and it looks like they're looking for qualified guys for their databases. I called a couple after seeing jobs advertised for 3 weeks, only to be told, that they'd gone, but the recruitment company hadn't had chance to remove them from the job-site yet.

A bit more digging around led me to find that out of about 50 jobs advertised with several agencies, there were less than 10 available!

Also, if you're heading this way, try to find someone who'll sponsor you before you come - this'll help when you're trying for your work visa - again, depending where you're coming from.

Good luck!
