Medical Laboratory Scientist

Hello. Almost 2 months na ako dito sa Perth, pero hanggang nagyon hirap pa rin akong makahanap ng work sa Pathology as Medical Laboratory Scientist or Medical Technician. AIMS passer naman ako, as well as licensed MLS sa USA at Registered Medical Technologist sa Philippines. Mahirap ba talagang humanap ng work dito? Under Skilled Work Regional Visa Subclass 491 ako. :(

    @queenbee360 speaking from friends experience na AIMS passer, yes they had a hard time. Nagapply muna sila as phlebo sa government hospital. After 3 years nabigyan siya ng chance sa lab with constant checking kung may opening sila.

    Hello, applayan mo lahat ng opening sa seek.com at sa LinkedIn. Western Australia ba pala sponsoring state mo? Did you consider to look for jobs in regional areas at ibang states like NSW. Sa NSW kasi maraming opening. 491 din ako, currently offshore ako ngaun and I was able to find a job as a Scientific Officer in regional NSW.

    Hello! Im currently working as a medtech in a secondary hospital here in the Philippines for 4 years and 6 months but I’m planning to continue working in a freestanding lab. Will that be ok? I really need to have 5 years of experience to have high points when applying for my visa. Thank you sa makakasagot 😅

    Family sponsored po ako sa WA. Na-applyan ko na po ata lahat ng medical scientist/medical technician pati Covid swabber positions sa seek, minsan sine-seen lang ako and most times, hindi man lang tinitignan ang application ko. AIMS passer din po ako.

    Try to get someone who does resume and cover letter writing. There are people who are really good at this and they do it as a second job. Maybe you just need to have your resume stand out to be able to get the employer’s attention. Try to include a cover letter in your application as well. All the best!

    I think my resume is fine the way it is. We follow a certain format as medical professionals. I also write a cover letter specifically tailored for the position in every application. Thanks for the advice though, I appreciate it :)

    Expand your network, pwede kang maka kuha ng referral sa kanila.

    Based on experience,covid 19 jobs ung easiest na ma applyan ( go lng swabber, call center, data encoder).
    Mostly, employer wants local experience.

    Try also making follow ups: email and call them (so that mapansin ka nila and that you can have an idea why di ka na shortlist)

    MLS din ako.... AIMS passer, currently in south australia... kaka big move ko lng din nung nag open ang borders under 489 visa)
