My first post here. I am originally from Pakistan but been living in the US for almost 10 years now, a professional engineer working in automotive industry. I got approved for SN 190 through SA sponsorship and now planning on landing down there in first week of July. I've been reading all the horror stories about shortage of employment opportunities specially in SA region and that has - honestly - put heavy dampers on any excitement moving down under.
While there have been many many useful tips and supportive posts from forum members for those about to take the plunge, my primary concern & priority at this point is to find an initial place to stay after landing and some sort of social help in getting my feet on the ground in a totally new environment.
I am single male, 40, no kids, clean and quiet. If there's any help available, please direct me to the right direction.
Also, if any members know of any social group of Pakistanis in Adelaide, that would be a tremendous help as well.
