    I studied IT back in 2015. Career wise, yes it is rewarding but the journey to PR is quite expensive unless IT ka na talaga before.

    I have to do the professional year program to get a positive assessment from ACS which costs 12k aud plus yung seminars for CPD points

    If gusto mo maging PR through SV, I would suggest take healthcare courses like nursing. Mataas demand dito talaga, not sure if it's a rewarding career but would probably say it's fulfilling as you help people in the community. (assumption ko lang)

    Hi, i have plan to enroll IT as well in Australia. I'm eyeing Queensford College pero masyado mahal yung tuition sa school compara sa New Era pero pare-pareho naman sila ng curriculum na inooffer. I'm on the process of preparing my requirements for next year intake. Is there a way that I can contact you privately po for more questions? May agency po ako nagaasikaso ng papers ko now.

  • superluckycloversuperluckyclover Melbourne, AustraliaPosts: 698Member

    @lunarcat ! All the best. Okay naman IT climate dito, medyo challenging lang siguro sa akin kasi start from fresh ako.

    Start from fresh din ako e. Graduate ako ng IT sa Pinas. Student visa ka din ba? What school po sa Australia?

  • frisch24frisch24 VictoriaPosts: 67Member

    @lunarcat basta willing to learn ka at positive attitude. that can sometimes convince the employer to hire you. di ba @superluckyclover ;)

  • frisch24frisch24 VictoriaPosts: 67Member

    @lunarcat yung queensford college ba is nsa Sydney? Victoria kasi kami ni @superluckyclover

  • superluckycloversuperluckyclover Melbourne, AustraliaPosts: 698Member

    @lunarcat hindi ako IT sa Pinas kaya gapang na gapang ako. And yes, gaya ng sinabi ni @frisch24 , positive mindset talaga ang need.

    Naka graduate visa kami ngayon at na-invite na rin kami ni @frisch24 for permanent residency, inaantay na ang Direct Grant!
