Been reading this forum for a while and noticed you are really negative about the job situation but I think this is out of order Deb17!!!
Yeah I know it is difficult to find work whatever you do but didn't you research before you came out here?
Stop being so negative when people only want to get on with their lives and meet new people. We have heard you!!!!!!!!!(Several times)!!!!!!!!!
If you had read my posts properly you'd know what I aspire to do for a living. I did do my research yes, but didn't find out until we got here just how hard the job situation is and how much the Aussies like to look after their own. I HAVE tried a new direction - now having to do casual childcare work just to earn a little cash - I have also applied to temp agencies, for library jobs, office work, all kinds, but never with any luck. What happened to the forum rules about not making personal attacks on people?! I'm only expressing my opinion and the truth as I see it. I am a 'skilled' person - the main visa applicant, yet here I am languishing in the depths of unemployed despair. Perhaps you could walk a mile in my shoes and discover what empathy means. And get back to the topic of the thread too, if you please.

Okay lets not turn this thread into another of those spats that ends up being moderated. Deb I know you are voicing your opinion and so is everyone else, so really no one should be taking umbrage. However please all try to stick to the topic of the thread which in this case was started by someone wanting to meet other people, not to discuss negatives on the forum. Once you have met these people in the person they may enjoy letting their whole angst out and let off steam in a group sesh but this thread is not the place!
