I am running 3 free workshops May and June and attracting skilled migrants (and other job seekers) living in the South of Adelaide to attend to hear about all the free services available to help them. You may want to pm for info

Very interesting thread, it's been 50/50 for us. OH got job quickly although she had to side step a bit. I'm the main visa applicant, yet it's gone worse case pretty much. Don't take any notice of SOL list basicly, it's total rubbish. It may well be the work is more regional country locations. Adelaide isn't exactly flush with facilities for it's size and population, so I dread to think what country towns are like. We came on sponsored 176, so had to come to Adelaide, totally love Aus and keep pinching ourselfs to check its not a dream, all positive except my trade, which is why we're here, no way leaving Aus but I can see Adelaide and SA getting sacked sooner rather than later.
Paula H, sorry its a secret, just doing my own thing now, if I mention it I just get loads of questions.
Jennet, our attitude and mind set has changed since arrival. We came with an open mind, and low expectations but were very serious in many respects. Now based on whats happened so far, we're in more of a 'take it for what it is' mood. It's just great to be out of the UK, and we're grateful to have this experience. When cashflow allows, we will take a serious look at Brisbane and Perth. We have decided today to change suburbs here as well, when current lease expires. Got to be worth a laugh.

We moved here 7 months ago. I managed to land a job within about a month of being here. It turned out to be Formwork which although it paid well was not like the carpentry I was used to. A week ago they suddenly told me I had been made redundant. It was apparently last in first out but this wasn't quite true. It seems if you drink with the boss on the way home from work you secure your job for longer. I am not bitter just p'd off with the way they handled things with absolutely no warning.
I am now looking for Carpentry work. I have been a carpenter for 25 years and can do any kind of carpentry. If you know of anyone who needs a good carpenter please let me know.
