Well Said Doug M!, could have not said it any better.
You still around Nursebucko? Still coming?
the exchange rate will make a huge difference I'm guessing that episode of WDU was filmed when the pound bought you 1.8 ( or less) dollars, now 2.1 and rising. Now that makes a huge difference, especially when bringing cash from sale of a house.
The historic average is around 2.2 so reverting to the norm really, although we once got 2.5 we have bought as low as 1.4:(
Not a morning person!
Not so long ago a few of us were attacked on this forum for being overly negative with regard to jobs outlook for arriving migrants. Adelaide is an economic basket case and slowly it is dawning on people. If you are coming here to work be warned. It is not impossible but do your research and realise the unemployment rate is the highest in the country and climbing. Enthusiasm will get you so far but reality bites when you are here, There are many who may have no problem but unless you are highly skilled and in demand it will not be easy.
There are nursing jobs out there. You can PM me and i can suggest places to look, so you may be able to apply in advance of landing. Some nurses also take on agency positions to allow themselves to get experience, and get a foot in the door in an area they like.
My friend and I both moved out 3 years ago and we both find money goes further here, and your pay as a nurse here is higher to reflect the increase in cost of living. Also, IMO the health sector is far better-resourced here than in the UK so I find working here is a lot more enjoyable in comparision.
