Chemical Engineer Fresh Grad ( Ways before getting PR?)

zyrarizyrari CavitePosts: 9Member
Hello po! I’m a licensed chemical engineer in PH (no work exp)

May chance po ba na makakuha PR if magstudy muna ako ng diploma course?
Will I find a job rin po ba na related sa engineering with my student visa?

OR
Magenroll ng master’s? Issue po with Master’s is ang mahal :(

    Do what me and a few of my friends here are doing. Aral ka ng diploma course na mura lang for the points. Then take naati when you are here. If you max out age pts as well as english, makakaabot ka ng 75.

    In regards to jobs, dedepende yan sa swerte mo pero nasa disadvantage tayo e. Di pwede full time since di tayo PR so unlikely tayo na mahire sa engg jobs, as well as kalaban natin ang locals. I tried sending tons of emails to engg companies. Walang nagpush through kahit isa haha. Be prepared ka dito na di maging maarte to do something unrelated sa engg.

    Do more research, pero keep in mind na masters man o diploma course, both will give +5. You need to plan ahead before coming here. I personally resorted to student visa as it's my only option to get more points in 2 yrs, since kakagraduate ko lang last 2017.

    These are all my personal experiences cause I am in the same boat as you. All the best!

    @MLBS May I know what diploma course yung kinuha niyo?
    Most likely magagamit pa natin yung pagiging engr. natin once magka PR tayo since tataas na chance ma’hire?
    Thank you po!!

    @zyrari work health and safety inaaral ko. Focus ka muna sa pagiging PR kasi malabo tayo maka engg jobs dito as of now e. Trust me, ang hirap maghanap ng trabaho dito. Sinwerte lang ako na nakahanap ako agad.

  • zyrarizyrari CavitePosts: 9Member
    I’m from UST Che po pala. Hello po mga kapwa engineers!

    @MLBS ahh ganun po ba.I’ll consider po your course tho may appointment rin po ako bukas with AMS global. Ok lang po sakin magwork outside engg field kahit anong work po while focusing on getting my PR :)) Gusto ko lang po ma’make sure na we’ll have higher chances po on getting our engg field jobs/dream jobs in AU after PR. Wala rin po kasi ako masyado nababasa about engr sa AU. Thank you po!!

    @kailey hello po! Gaano katagal na po kayo sa AU? Nagdiploma ka rin po ba?
  • MLBSMLBS ManilaPosts: 528Member
    @zyrari schoolmate pala kita haha! AMS din agency ko na tumulong saken, pero I was the one who chose the school I wanted. Pag hinayaan mo sila mamili ilalagay ka nila sa mamahaling schools so best to do your own research. Familiarize yourself with the skilled independent points system para may idea ka sa dapat gawin to get points

    @MLBS hala hello po! thomasian ka rin po pala hehehe AMS rin po yung sinuggest sakin ng friend ko from UST rin nursing naman po siya.
    yes po magreresearch rin po ako ng schools na kaya ng budget yung di ko pala sure is yung course na in line sa field ko po pero nagkaidea na rin po ako based sa course mo po :)
    Medyo scared lang po ako na baka in time di rin ako makakuha ng engg field job sa AU eh wala naman rin po ako exp dito sa PH pa :( pero I really wanna go talaga sa AU huhu
  • MLBSMLBS ManilaPosts: 528Member
    @zyrari ganyan din ako dati haha talagang engg job lang gusto ko at wala nang iba. Pero narealize ko unti unti na its too idealistic. Dapat realistic tayo. Pag PR ka na dito wala nang makakapigil sayo haha. 3 weeks palang ako dito pero ayaw ko na bumalik sa pinas. 1 day ko na sweldo dun is halos 1 hr ko lang dito hahahah. You need to make sacrifices when you come here. Isasantabi mo lang naman engg qualifications mo for the meantime. Di ka naman mag isa dyan haha. Si kailey nakausap ko na rin yan before at same kami ng goal. I also came across other young engineers dito sa forum from different schools saten. Mga total of 5 kami na all doing the same thing.

    Di ka alone so dont worry. Message me if you need anything haha iilan lang tayong bata bata pa sa forum na to e (sorry po sa senior members hehehe)

And tama din sya na mahirap maghanap ng work expi kung gusto mo na related sa field natin dahil pag magaapply ka ma fifilter ka agad dahil sa work restrictions. :)

    Thank you po guys sa pagrespond kahit baka busy po kayo sa mga work niyo
  • indulgenceindulgence Abu DhabiPosts: 32Member
    Hello @zyrari . We have same course and schoolmate dn tayo batch 2014 nga lang ako.

    Totoo mga sinasabe nila MLBS at kailey.

    With regards sa pocket money, consider mo yung 3-5 months usual rent mo sa State mo. Like for example for my case in Perth, usually 130 to 150 aud per week ang rate.
    You can find details sa rent sa flatmates or gumtree websites.

    If plan mo magstudent visa, madadaanan mo rin yan kasi need mo yan imention sa SOP. How you will manage ur budget. :D
  • zyrarizyrari CavitePosts: 9Member
    @indulgence thank you po! nagpractice ka pa po ng che dito sa ph? If student visa what course po yung pinursue mo? And nag paassess ka pa po ba sa EA? Hehe

    gets na gets ko yung mga tulad mo na pumunta dito once at ayaw na umalis! :D

    Nakakatuwa yung mga young professionals like yourselves na maaga pa lang, iniisip na ang best possible future.

    I arrived in Sydney in 2014. Almost 5 years ago. I was 26. In the last 5 years, I was able to have my own family and earn at least 12 times than I was earning sa Pilipinas (ie. 1 year doon = 1 month dito)

    I have my citizenship exam scheduled early March. Moving to Australia will always be in the top 3 best decisions I've ever made in my life.

    Good luck sa inyong lahat! There are a lot of pathways available. It might be harder now than it was during my time, but if you don't try now, it will just get harder and harder down the line.

    P.S UST ComSci graduate ako batch 2009. Shoutout to all Thomasians. :)

    Hello Guys!

    so glad I came across this thread and saw mga kapwa Thomasians and Engineers.
    Graduate po ako ng IE few years back and planning to take a student visa since di aabot points ko for PR.

    First choice ko sana is Diploma in Project Management pero nagbago ang isip ko at baka Diploma in IT or Systems Analysis and Design na lang.

    I saw @kailey is taking up Diploma in Project Management at naisip ko na naman bumalik. hoho!

    @drc34 Di pwede. Yung 16 months dapat po coming from a single course. Di din pwede ung 1 year course tapos another 1 year course. No worries.
