just want to share a positive outcome too. I arrived in November and started hunting for jobs at the end of January. Got one yesterday in my field in a great company! I am very happy... Skills for all was a great help for me, I went to their workshops (interview, resumes, pathway to employment) and prepare one interview with my consultant. I wasn't confident at all when I started to look for jobs, mainly because English is not my first language and because I don't have any local experience but I have been lucky to meet people who don't mind about my accent and the fact that I sometimes need to ask to repeat a word or a sentence!
I had other interviews with another company but got a faster answer from the first one. So I am happy to go with it! (I am in management)
Gwen, Fab and 2 kids.... IELTS Feb 2014. SA invitation Feb 2014. Visa granted on July 10, 2014. Arrived in Oz on Oct 30, 2014. Settled in Marino.
One of my Aussie friends rang me this morning to say she has an interview next week. Her previous contract wasn't renewed because of budget cuts (sign of the times) so she is keeping her fingers crossed for next week. It is a temporary role, but often these can become longer term. I am working on a contract at the moment that was only for 3 months and I have been there over 2 years. Often if you are a good fit in the team/organisation they will try to keep you.

Please don't ask me any more questions though because I don't know anything else other than the search I did on the internet. Good luck.
