I have been perusing SAAustralia for some time and have already come across quite a few helpful tips, so decided to join the community to ask more specific

  4. We are almost done with our 489 application to Tasmania. I have heard some rumours that you are not allowed to have a permanent job and a side gig that supplements your income. I am a marketer, but I also do wedding photography on the side as a paying hobby. I just want to make sure we don't get into any trouble with the immigration authorities if I set up a side business along with permanent employment.
  5. Hi, I have just arrived in Melbourne three weeks ago (and loving it) and I am looking for an Electrical Engineering job and advice in the building services industry. Thus far I have improved my CV to the Australian Style along with my LinkedIn profile, applied to a couple of positions on Seek.com.au and I have also created a profile on livehire.me (thanks to a similar post).

  9. Hi there, Can anyone help me how is the work opportunities over in Oz? As I am currently in the insurance industry, and not sure how their quilifications work regarding this. And if I want to change my career path, is there any opportunities to do so...
  10. Hi everyone, I'm new to the forum and I must say it's been very helpful so far. I've just made the the decision to move over to Oz recently even though I have had the opportunity to do so before. I was wondering if any one can outline for me, what the Aussie government need to see i your references from your previous employment? The concern that I have is that the company I previously worked for had a manager with a chip the size of the grand canyon on his shoulder so he and I never saw eye to eye on many things. The day after I handed in my letter of resignation he threatened to make trouble
  11. I wrote this as a response to another post and it grew its own head so i created a post for it rather: I work in an industry where i visit a lot of different businesses and deal with management and staff so i got beaten into shape pretty quickly.

  15. hello, I am currently based (stuck, it seems) in South Africa, and in recent months there have been certain personal developments (I have met an Australian woman) that basically have me really, really wanting to get to Australia, and on a longer basis than a tourist visa would allow. I have two big problems: I have never completed my schooling, leaving with a standard 7 (grade 9) certificate, and I've been doing menial jobs ever since, therefore I don't have what could be considered an appreciated skill.
