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.

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.

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?

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.

Hello,

Congratulations for this :) . I cannot agree more to the situation since I too am facing this and was wondering if my resume needs to be revamped. Would you be so kind and helpful in sharing the new format please ?

Many thanks in advance.

I am on the same boat, I started looking for jobs last march. A few agents had called, but only scheduled me for a face to face interview, and I haven't heard from him again.. It'll surely be great if you can share the new resume format =D

Thanks!

I can say it really depends on the specialization I think, and most of the opportunities are specific like 2yrs of more in this or that language... In Adelaide, there are not much opportunities, most of the good openings are on the defense but it requires you to be a citizen. There have been more opportunities in Sydney, Melbourne, and ACT so I suggest targeting to stay in these states if you are not bound to regional sponsorship. I have had quite a number of calls from these states but eventually most of them says that in any case, I should fly there for interview (at your own expense) as most of these calls come from agents.

Junior software development jobs

What about Junior jobs? I am thinking about moving to Melbourne in some months with a Working Holiday Visa, how difficult would it be to find a job relying on just a few months long experience in your opinion? It wasn't so difficult here in Milan after all, but I was helped by university placement network, while I'd be a total stranger over there.
What's you experience?

I am really curious about the winning résumé too :)

I'd advise against people sending other their CV.

There has been a few cases of people just changing the name at the top and passing it off as thier own.

CVs are not hard. List who you are and what you've done. Some places like bullet points, others like descriptions. Taylor it for each application.

Also use 'proper' English. If the CVs are typed the same as some of the posts on here, you'll never get an offer.

Business Analyst Jobs

Guys,

How's the job market there in Australia for ICT Business Analyst? I am in Telecom domain and ACS has certified me for 8 years of experience in BA (overall 11 years exp).

I have applied for PR and unsure about what to do once it is approved. I do not know anybody in Australia and really tensed about where to land, what to do and how much money to bring.

I know I have quite some time to research on this before I get my PR but it is better to gather information already instead of waiting.

Anybody who is already employed in Australia please suggest.

Regards.
