Hi, I'm holding a 457 Visa, dependent sa husband ko. I have to quit my job in Singapore in a telecommunication company, call center environment, para magkasama kmi dito. 1 month na po ako dito and ngayon lng po ako mg sisimula mg apply :)

Any advice po from our kababayans here in melbourne? Customer service or technical support officer po kasi target ko. Salamat at mabuhay ang mga pinoy.

    Just ended my customer service stint with a healthcare company in Mulgrave (hanglayo kasi!). Had an interview this morning with Stellar BPO in Box Hill. Salmat is also a huge call centre company in CBD. Good luck!

    I just applied to Stellar last friday online. Crossing my fingers. Which visa are you holding? @Metaform. Thank you.

    @jck29 I hold visa 190. May open day interview ang Stellar. Ask them kung kailan ang next, there's no need to wait for an invite.

    @jck29/Metaform Hi, I would like to ask if you are working in a Call Center na? How is it? Thanks.
  • jck29jck29 MelbournePosts: 7Member
    @mariam Yes. Almost the same when I was back in philippines and singapore. But less stress :)
  • mariammariam MelbournePosts: 5Member
    @jck29 Wow, that's good to hear. May I ask where's your location in AU? Is there a way that referral works there? :D
  • mariammariam MelbournePosts: 5Member
    @jck29 Sorry, I mean in Melbourne. hehehe

    Not related but I reckon it would be better if you guys apply for customer service rather than in call center , TPG, Optus and Telstra's call center are sourced overseas so I dont think you can find a vacancy for a Call center

    Google for Everything !!!
