Firstly, here i introduced myself. And, I have already read all the IT job related posts in this forum. Few posts were really informative, few were scary. :_)
Secondly, I'm following some job sites regularly including seek.com . Unfortunately, I'm still not getting a clear picture about the SA job condition.
So, my questions will be specific.
i) I'm a telecom billing specialist, with a good skill in Oracle and PHP. Is there any good telecom companies in SA ? Also, is there any online list of software companies in SA? I didn't find one.
ii) Whenever i search with, suppose, "Oracle", seek.com returns lots of jobs in other metropolitan cities like Sydney or Melbourne, but very few in Adelaide. I know the ratio which should be considered as normal, but I'm afraid, SA seems much low than that for IT jobs.
Is seek.com placing the real picture? Or, the agencies can manage good jobs which they usually don't place via online portal?
iii) Having visa subclass 475, I'll be able to move other regional states too. Can you refer me some other states which you consider good for IT jobs besides SA?
iv) A bit personal: i can't afford more than $5000 to settle me up at the first launch in SA. I'm still single. Do you think, this amount is good enough to survive before i get a decent Job? I don't mind odd jobs as temporary basis.
These questions might sound too frequent & bothering for you, but those are really important for me on taking decision for movement. Thanks in advance for all of your replies!
