    Hello mga kabayan, again apologies for late response busy po on work and family. Its almost Christmas and we are on our last day at work, most companies back on 2nd and some are on 8th Jan 2018. The market is pretty noisy this time of the year despite its holidays, more companies are growing and need more staff.

    If you are currently here Adelaide I know a good friend from Talent group looking for Service Desk Analyst for three of their clients, one is Datacom, Flinders Uni and the last one I didn't get the name. These are currently on contract base positions but very ideal specially if you need experience, so you can reach me directly on my email at [email protected]

    For those who requested a copy of sample Cover Letter and Resume, I have forwarded these to your email addresses. I will be busy in the next couple of weeks and hopefully moving to our first build home in Adelaide, its exciting!!! Everyone can achieve these as well, we moved here in Oz 3 years ago and we had reached our goals with just patience and persistence to achieve your dreams! Just a bit of inspiration for everyone :-)

    Good luck and have a Merry Christmas!
