I know it's not directly 820 related but good new anyway!!
I got a job proposal today!! finally after many interviews and months of working in cafes there is something in my field and where the recruiter isn't scared by my visa status! I think my job situation was what was worrying me the most about the length of the wait, but I feel like now I can wait more serenely
I am only at 2.5 months so I still have a long way to go

Congratulations . It is always great to see people getting jobs in their field. Unfortunately we see too many posts from people asking how to get a job in their field.

What field do you work in if you do not mind me asking? I thought it might give people hope for those in the same or similar field.

Thanks Mish! I'm excited (and a bit stressed )

It's a sales & marketing coordinator position - salary is also about what I expected
I think it was particularly hard cause I'm in ACT where most jobs require PR or citizenship.. and then even if others don't state it that's also what they want (which I can understand from a recruiter point of view).

I think my chance was that the recruiter just had one of his staff's wife partner visa approved so he didn't get scared

That is great news . Especially since Marketing is hard to get a job in from what I have been told and also Canberra is full of public servants.

Funny you mention the recruiter. The person that interviewed my husband for his new job has a foreign wife/partner so knew about the partner visa process. Maybe that is what helped. We didn't expect him to get a job like that for another year or 2 (until he got PR or more Australian experience).

Also if you don't know. The company will tell you what award you are under (if not google it) and the award will tell you the minimum rate of pay and other conditions too.

Yeah, it's a tough market! I' m glad I persevered even though I was really starting to loose faith.. so to everyone here, don't give up, keep on applying there is room for Australian partners on the job market!

Maybe if recruiters knew more about visa it would be easier for foreigners to find job that suits their qualification. I had an offer for another job a few months back as well, and same the recruiter had been through the visa partner process - but at the end she got the funding for the position withdrawn as it was at budget time

Thanks for the award tip - I know about it as I was working in cafe before, but this job is above award wage anyway it's a package paid
But I guess it might be good maybe in the "list of things to do when you arrive" to have a post about work as well, with links to Fairwork, and giving ideas of wages as many migrants have no clue how much they can be paid here (had so many friends doing cash jobs for $12/hour and be happy with it while they should have earned double...) & maybe a few things about work rights in Australia?

Good idea about the links. Maybe even a thread on things you should know about the Australian job market.

And maybe a quick description on how to present resume and cover letter here? It's very different than from in many countries - I had my partner to help me which was great as he has a managerial position where he hires sometimes, but I think not everyone has that chance

Those that don't have an Australian partner would find it difficult. I did my husband's resume. It wasn't much different to what he had.
