Hey all my names Tom.
I spent last year traveling Australia and absolutely loved the place and now want to look seriously into migrating here permanently, specifically Adelaide. I am trying to gather as much information as possible but it all seems incredibly daunting are difficult.
I am 22 years old and a painter and decorator with around 4 years experience but no NVQ's etc but my work is of good standard and my currant boss will give me a great reference. I see i can get my skills assessed by the ASA has anybody done this? how difficult was it?
I have another 1 year WHV visa so the plan is to get with a painting firm and look to get sponsored to stay longer but even this seems a headache. Have any of you been sponsored? and was it relatively straight forward?
I know you all probably get sick of the same questions coming in but there's so much information out there i don't know what to believe.
So if you can just tell me of your experience and what exactly i would need to do it would be much appreciated, or maybe some of you are painters and decorators over in Adelaide who could help me out.
I will be arriving in Adelaide in a weeks time and have a years visa so need to get the ball rolling reasonably quickly.
Thanks a lot
