Little bit about my self - I am female, other side of 30, am teacher of IT at a sixth form college. My OH is a pipefitter/welder. I have 2 sons, but my youngest only will be going, he's 12. Myself and my son are quite outgoing, bubbly, enjoy meeting new people ALL the time. I love new and I love a sense of adventure. I want a life where I am not stuck in the rat race - where I feel that I am at the moment. My OH is a little shier, but a lot more layed back than myself.;)
Anyhow I visted the Expo yesterday and after the talks - I felt that SA ticked all the boxes, particularly Adelaide. I then went on this forum yesterday and it really depressed me - people who go over, no jobs for months and even highly skilled people could only just get a job in fast food restaurants - is this really true!!!
I am applying for a 176 visa. I also have an aunty that lives in Sun Valley - think thats the right name, but have only met her a few times in my life, however we do keep in contact via email and letters. I really am concerned that I would get a job, as I probably will have to go over first as many of you say you wont get one until you come over. What are the chances of working in a TAFE college, or for an IT Software Training company???? Is it possible that may OH could get a job on the Olympic dam, if not what are his chances anyhow of getting work as a boilermaker? What will our pay be like? I've looked at bit at houses etc - but I hope yoou can help me and tell me that Adelaide would be the right choice?
I hope some of you will get back to me as I value you any info - just I was all excited yesterday and when I read on the forum it made my heart sink!!!
