    Nagemail ko sknla at eto ang sagot

    Dear Mr. De Vera:

    We wish to inform you that the Commission on Filipinos Overseas (CFO) only
    registers and conducts pre-departure orientation seminar (PDOS) to
    Filipino emigrants with permanent resident visa. Australian Visa Subclass
    489 is a provisional visa and is not classified as a permanent resident
    visa. You may, however, register with the CFO on your next departure to
    Australia if you have adjusted your status to permanent residency in
    Australia.

    You may wish to call the Philippine Overseas Employment Administration
    (POEA) at (632) 722-1155 or (632) 722-1144 to check if your Australian
    visa is considered under the working visa class.

    Best regards.

    Totoo naman na for most occupations mas kaunti yung job opportunities dito sa SA compared to Sydney or Melbourne. Kaya nga eligible ang SA to sponsor 489 and 491 visas kasi low growth metropolitan area ito. Sa tingin ko importante rin kasi to have realistic expectations pag pumunta dito. Gaya ng nasa article, you cannot expect a visa to automatically lead to a job.

    In my case, nagstrategize ako kung paano ko iaapproach yung job hunting kasi yung occupation ko usually sa HQ based. Kaso bihira na may big national or multinational company na may HQ dito, so inalam ko kung anong industries ang malaki dito and pagdating ko inisa-isa ko yung websites nung mga local SA companies. May careers pages sila and minsan dun lang sila nag-aadvertise ng openings. I also monitored job openings in seek.com for 2 months bago ako nag-BM, para realistic ang expectations ko about the job market.

    May mga job opportunities naman dito. Kailangan lang masipag mag-apply and you really have to sell yourself sa cover letter pa lang. Syempre importante rin na maayos ang English communication skills kasi English speaking country ito, so it helps to expose yourself to the locals para masanay ka sa accent and matantya mo rin how well they understand you. Sa tingin ko importante sa interview na madali kayo magkaintindihan ng interviewer.

    Marami akong rejections na natanggap. Pero none of them ever told me na dahil kailangan ng local experience. Aside from obvious naman sa CV ko na wala akong local experience, sa interview sinasabi ko agad sa Tell Me About Yourself portion ng interview na kakarating ko lang dito. Wala naman negative reactions. In the end nakakuha naman ako ng full time job na aligned sa skills ko and yung iba, ganun din naman. Basta mahaba dapat pasensya and masipag sa job hunting, realistic expectations, and always think positive.

  • ju.litnacju.litnac SGPosts: 16Member

    o:) agree ako jan. Think positive and pray...

  • Hunter_08Hunter_08 AdelaidePosts: 1,965Member

    Yup don't expect na porket may visa ay mabilis ng makakahanap ng work. You really have to research, lots of patience at open to any type of work just in case mahirapan talaga makahanap in line sa occupation(pero syempre mas okay kung related sa occupation). Importante ditto yung connections, mas madali makapasok sa isang company kung may connection or may nag recommend sayo but syempre your skills din. Good luck sa newly migrants. kayang kaya nyo yan at lahat naman magiging worth it in the end.
