Hey everyone :lol:

I have found that finding work in Adelaide isn’t easy :huh: . The Advertiser (The newspaper) is a good source of jobs but it has limited positions. (Make sure to get the paper on Wednesdays and Saturdays) Sites like www.seek.com.au, www.careerone.com.au, www.mycareer.com.au and www.cracker.com.au are good sites to check out. If you are interested, I have found that these employment services are incredibly helpful. Feel free to give them a call ;) . Most of them are located in the CBD.

Thanks alot for those useful websites. I sometimes wish I didn't have such a different occupation than most people, makes life difficult when trying to find a job.

Hi Fred,
You should also strongly consider approaching some companies directly - you are a more attractive option when you don't have an agency price tag on your head :P This is especially true for the more entry level kinds of positions, where companies are often reticent to pay 15% placement fees.

Try the IT Businesses (for example, I know that Alphawest has an Adelaide office) and also use the "Search by Company" facility on Seek. Just click on each company and go to their career websites and you'll be able to scan by city once there.

Good luck - if I think of anything else, I'll pop you a PM.

Cheers
Ajay

Hi Fred

Thanks for the posts. This will definitely keep me busy. I am just a bit worried now. I thought there will be plenty of job opportunities.

Are you currently in Adelaide? I am looking at perhaps a small town outside Adelaide. Perhaps you could let me know of some that are still within driving distance with a nice scenery, ie mountains, rivers, dams?? I don't know, from the net I see Adelaide Hills looks quite nice, but I don't really know where to look and the distances.

This is all quite overwhelming and I don't really know where to begin. Husband is still not quite sure if he wants to make the move!

Regards

Rocky

Hi Rocky

I live in the Hills. In Bridgewater to be exact. It is a wonderful area. The closest place near us, is Aldgate. There is a village here in Aldgate. It is marvelous. Then there is the German village Handorff which is a beautiful little area located about 20km from the adelaide. And then there is Mt. Barker. its an awesome place about 30km from the adelaide. It tskes about 15 min to reach these places because the highway connects all these places. I recommend that you check out these sites

http://www.dcmtbarke...u/site/page.cfm

http://www.adhills.com.au

http://www.adhills.c...towns/hahndorf/

The only reason Im having troubles finding work is because im young and i have very little experience. So im sure that you'll find work very easily. All I can say is that I recommend the hills very highly.

Hope i could help.

kind regards

Fred

Aus announced their current unemployment rate is 4.6%, lowest ever. Believe me you will get a job, the main thing is to get your visa first as most companies don't want to sponsor.

In the IT line there are so many possibilities, most of the sourcing are currently done outside Aus.

My only advice is, as Naas Botha said: "You only as good as your last game!". Don't go for a job to low putting you far back in your career as this might be the most frustrating thing you might experienced moving to Aus. I've made this mistake (as my reason moving to Aus was survival and not career movement), but luckily things turned quickly and within the first month I'm here I got 2 good job offers back to my level I've been in RSA.
