I am not Aussie bashing at all! My best friend is an Australian from Adelaide, we worked together back at home. It is just difficult times here at the moment, for those of you who came out a few years ago it was probably a bit easier as there was no world financial crisis on. I am currently working with a lady who has three teenage children and she has been totally honest with me. One of her children will soon be looking for a full time job and in the next few years so will the other two and she wants them to get work. She also said that if she was an employer she would give the job to an Australian - I appreciate her honesty, she is protecting her children.
The job that I mentioned was on either seek or career one about a week a go and said that they wanted a resident - local. I will try and find it to see if it still on there.
