    @dorbsdee sa interviews namin, di naman kami hinanapan pa ng local exp. pero kapag may opening sa mga seek at linkedin, meron minsan nakalagay na local experience is required. or sguro part ng consideration ng mga hiring manager, di lang sinasabi kapag nagbibigay ng feedback... tapos ung wala kaming experience is ung mga for casual jobs. na if mabigyan ng chance baka pwede kami magtry for now. habang wala pang IT job opportunity. kaya lang sa casual jobs ata meron sila mga white card ata na requirements or mga driver's license, police checks etc. wala kami nun. :-( bale nasa Sydney pala kami

    @MayoMay ah. oks naman po pala... all in all po mga nakilang interview na po kayo? ako kasi I'm applying offshore at sa July pa yung BM namin sa Melbourne. Ang naexperience ko kasi may tumawag saken na 2 recruiters at alam ko na yung inapplyan ko na yun talaga ang work ko in the same industry. kaso nga lang hinahanapan ako ng local experience. so naghanap-hanap po ako by searching online kung paano maovercome yung local experience. May nabasa nga ako isang article, paano kung si Bill Gates ang nagapply at walang local experience, matatanggap kaya sya?
    Kaya ayun napadpad ako sa mga career service websites; Tribus Lingua, ACECIS, AMES, at OQP...

    @admt2016 ok yan kami din rent pa pero decent and strategic naman ang location or access ng mga bata sa school and shops kaya we stayed pa rin kahit 2 lang ang rooms plus safe sa mga neighbors (factor din pala yan as we realized). Btw, natapos mo na ba pursued studies mo? Si wifey ko start na rin mag aral next week ng individual care support course. Tatapusin nya ng 14 weeks included practicum para sa ekonomiya.

    Samahan mo naman ng crossbuns yung coffee ko ha pag napasyal ako dyan sa inyo haha..

    @admt2016 @Cassey @jedh_g whaaaaaaaa buti pa kayo settled na. kami ni hubbby struggling pa din dito sa sydney. hanap ng work. nagtry na din kami sa ibang state magpass ng application. pero sguro dahil alam nila na nasa nsw, di nila kami tinatawagan. pero willing kami magmove if ever. hirap ng IT :-( daming applicants. may one time pa pinoy ang naginterview, hopeful ako kasi pwedeng maconsider nya ako if feel nya na pinoy ang katrabaho, or baka sakali na mafeel nya na mas mapapadali sya ng work kung pinoy ang mahire nya. kaso, nareject ako. based sa feedback nya mukha daw ako mahiyain sa interview... hahaha.. cguro mukhang kakainin ng client nila ng buhay at un ang ayaw nya. mas gsto nya ung strong sguro personality. kaso sayang tlaga. hays.. lessons learned kelangan tlaga wag kabahan. although mas kinabahan ako sa kanya sa interview. sguro kasi alam mong pinoy, tapos most of the time or di maiiwasan na napapansin ang grammar ng mga pinoy. unlike pag foreigner nag interview, alam mo na nagegets nila sinasabi mo kahit na may times na may mali. kasi alam mong alam nila na di naman english ang native language so mas considerate sila. though expected naman na dapat magaling ka sa english kung gusto mo makapasok sa company.hays, sana lang tlaga magkaroon pa kmi ng lakas ng loob. kahit na makareceive ng hindi ok na feedback, continue lang tlaga sa job hunt.

    kung magtry naman ng casual jobs like mag waitress kelangan pa pala ng RSA ba un. or white card pag construction. need pa ng training. so sguro pag wala na tlga choice baka pwede namin itry. sana lang di mahal ang training. pero sana di naman option na umuwi na ng pinas.. super sayang din kasi, andito na.tapos need din makabawi sa lahat ng expenses. sana lang maging ok na soon. :-(

    @MayoMay here are some tips on job hunt:
    1. Polish your CV well. Most and often times tamad sila magbasa ng CV na napakahaba kaya make your CV “fitted to what you had applied” not chronology of work experience. Madalas tayo mga noypi, kala natin pag more than 5 paged ang CV pasok na. Iba Sa Australia mas brief mas better. Gandahan mo din opening statement Mo para in a nutshell of 3-4 sentences alam Nila what you can give them
    2. Connect and network not necessary with fellow Pinoys but everyone be at coffee shops, Sa school ng kids, etc. sila usually magbibigay referral sa open jobs. Wag ka din mamimili ng jobs. I started and my wife distributing catalogues sa neighbourhood suburbs for several months. Nakasurvive kami, laban lang

    @MayoMay ah I see.. baka mas particular sila sa specific and not masyado sa general/broad specialty :( pero try and try pa din baka meron yan.

    @MayoMay 3.) Apply and invest in job tickets. Ako noon nag online for my white card induction card at talaga nakakafrustrate mag wait ng employer kaya kahit ano work pasukan mo muna to gain local experience. Si wife ko pasimula na mag aral for age care course. Discount applies pag PR. We even go Uber eats after work from 6:30 pm to early morning. Tandaan nyo in Australia, one must start to crawl first then walk.
    4.) PRAY and join a community where you share same beliefs. Kaya yan just push and believe. Wag kang uuwi sa Pinas mas maayos pa rin down under

    @MayoMay pwede ka mag volunteer mean time. Formerly, Sa museum display of cars ako volunteer kasama pa si misis. Enjoy nyo lang don’t get pressured if wala pa. Get job tickets and find a state sponsored or government funded course na affordable lang nearby. Don’t you worry kasi I knew how it felt. Lahat tayo dumadaan Sa ganyan stage ng migration. Take it easy and smile lang sis
