It looks like I will have to sit and wait to see what the prelims are of my assessment. I did try applying for job vacancies in Adelaide explaining my position and would they be interested if I had my Visa. 3 out of 5 came back with 1 wanting to keep them informed after reading my CV. I was suprised to have any.
Companies seem to worry about being burnt by empty promises from the past.
It all hangs on a thread now if my 10 years work Experience & C&G AutoCAD cert is good enough.
