Maybe the forum has a fault with the search function and is attributing posts to you that you didn't make.
Please accept my apologies.
I do have an interest. Hence me posting, and I am happy when others are happy.
All I am doing is showing the background to your post (as in all your posts prior to yesterday's were negative to Adelaide), I don't think there is anything wrong with what I have done. I like a good debate.
You have said that in your field there was no work in Adelaide, so you went back to UK and all is good. I have no issue with this at all, and i am not surprised that many fields have more opportunities in UK, but on the flip side more people go for every job too.
Well actually they weren't entirely negative as I did say that people should give it a fair chance and that some may actually love it. There's no need to delve into the deeper meaning of a simple story and analyse it as you've no idea what I really meant and what really happened - only I know this! There's no need for a debate and that's certainly not why I started this - it wasn't to be antagonistic, it was to help. Perhaps there are students or other young 20-somethings out there who need a helping hand - that's why I posted my story, not to have a debate about possible double-entendre and whether I really wanted a job, because that's ridiculous! Of course I wanted a great graduate job, I also wanted friends, a home and my parents to be happy but that wasn't to be so I went home and found everything I've ever wanted and consider myself to be very lucky. However, I do genuinely hope that people who move to Adelaide find happiness but if they don't, my post was put there to say "you're not alone and I'm very happy in England so perhaps you could be too, so if you want any advice please message me" - not "let's have a debate and talk about how terribly negative I've been". I'm sorry but in this forum you will find negatives (hence why people want to leave) but there will be positives too; for example I did say that I learnt an awful lot from my experience and I actually did take away some positive life lessons from my time here but overall it wasn't for me. But enough of this, if you have a sensible comment and need some advice please message me. If not, I hope my story helps at least one person!
Different situations mate. You're a graduate. I'm a father of two who would choose adelaide a million times over London where I used to live. If you get work here. Then there is no comparison!
ECLM is right, many young graduates with no work experience in their field or through knowing the right people will never ever find a suitable job here. I know many elderly people whose well qualified children couldn't find a good job and were forced to move to Victoria, NSW, Switzerland, UK etc.
That's why many graduates move interstate or like the TO back to England. There's nothing wrong with it. Studying long and hard and not finding a decent job had made many young South Australians contribute to the 'brain drain'.
It was and it is very hard not only to find a job in SA/Adelaide, it's even harder to remain in the job. When I think of my job as a casual/casual work force, increasing part time jobs due to cutting working hours to the bones in many industries even in the high demand aged care sector (others already mentioned the closure of Holden).
In contrast to ECLM I love Adelaide and Australia and hate the European weather. But that's the only disagreement I have.
People who cannot cope with different opinions and negative experiences shouldn't read 'returning back to the UK' threads.
IELTS 01/2011; TRA 03/2011; SS SA 05/2011; visa 176 lodged 06/2011; visa grant 08/2011; arrived in Adelaide 02/2012; Australian citizen 08/2016
I have no idea what you mean about elderly people with well qualified children has to do with anything TBH.
But moving on, all over the world people move to get work. My doctor in Adelaide is from the UK, whereas my Dr in the Uk was from India. I am sure someone out of Australia has an Australian doctor.
5 years ago UK was in dire straits now it's picking up. All things go in cycles, maybe in 3 years SA booms again. Who knows?
And I don't think any of us can't cope with these threads, do you mean those who don't want to go back to UK shouldn't read them? If so, why not?
