Congratulations and good luck !!!
Congrats Martin, you`ll do great
Glad to see persistance has payed off for you, good on ya.
Congratulations Martin & Val
I haven't spent much time on PIA in the last few days. I found myself completely addicted to reading everyones posts last week, when I really should be sorting/clearing out before we make the BIG move. I started to feel very wrapped up in life in Adelaide, which isn't a bad thing really, but I have got heaps to do over here before we come over to join you all.
When I logged on tonight and read your fantastic news I was so excited for you :D
We have never met, but I feel that we have known you for years.
The journey you have been on is a very similar one to which I expect we will go on and reading all your very helpful/informative & honest posts over the past few weeks has been so useful.
I really wish you all the very best in your job and future in Oz.
I hope that you will still have a little time to spend on PIA, to keep us all on the positive journey to South Australia.
All the very best
Thank you Emma, Graham and Grace,

Well done Martin!!
I've not been on here in a few weeks and looks what's happened. Fantastic news for sure..well chuffed for ya.
I'm sure you'll wow them.
I was at the SA Works Forum this week and the guy presenting spoke about the "puppy dog" syndrome.... meaning once you're in it's always hard to let go..bit like a puppy when it first comes into the house, the mums and dads might say no, not getting a puppy...but once the pups been in a few days they're gonners!
I'm sure you'll show them what you're made of in no time.

I'm registered for the SA work Forum this Wednesday, I believe it's all day with lunch provided as far as the letter says anyway. Is it any good?

The forum does briefly discuss resumes but the guy wants everyone to go to the "workshop" which is a fortnight after the forum, for two days but only half days. I'm going to have a go at crafting some resumes and covering letters based on his e-book and take them with me, hopefully get some feedback.
The lunch is "ok", fuel I guess eh..lol...but there's plenty tea and coffee, muffins, cookies..mmm...not a bad wee day out really ;-)
I reckon you'll enjoy it, especially with the pressure off regarding looking for work for a bit!
Have fun...ttfn...Carol Ann
