I work at a College which offers training in Certificate II and III in Business and Business Administration courses, Microsoft short courses, MYOB and resume and covering letter writing workshops.
All the students at the College have access to our free job referral scheme where employers contact us with their vacancies and we put forward recommended and interested students. Until I started working at the College I had no idea this route to obtain a job was available and often you are only competing against a handful of applicants, instead of the 100's they will get on seek. Obviously there are no guarantees, but thought I would let people know this route exists.
Gaining employment in my opinion is a big part of a successful migration experience and I personally feel that gaining Australian qualifications is a worthwhile investment that can help you initially and long term with your job prospects - I know they have certainly helped me.
