    So far no luck, but I only have been here for 2 weeks, been applying to anything IT related, help desk, service desk and IT Support, but it seems that the market for software developers is really slow :S

    Def worth registering with some agents - which I am sure you have done anyway - Talent International, Candle, Finite and Paxus were all helpful when I arrived - though System Admin here.

    The market slows down as it heads into Christmas. Does pick up again in Feb.

    I can only say Talent International were really helpful, they got several job interviews and a nice permanent job for my OH (.Net developer).

    Today I found a nice job ad for me (IT-related) and ALMOST applied for it. Almost, because of this little note at the bottom of the ad:

     

    'Please note I am unable to consider any candidates with-out experience working in Australia who are already residing in the country. If this is not you please do not apply.'

    Two months, still no job, about the local experience thing, I think is a DeadLock, how you want someone to acquire local experience if you don't let them work? by the way I'm volunteering at the digital hub in Grote Street, and there are some good classes if anyone wants to learn how to use things like iPads, iPhones, Tablets, kindles and that kind of things :smile:

    Hi colin,

     

    I work in IT support/infrastructure background. I have been here two weeks and havent really had much luck on the job front. What agencies did you register with? what did you do back in the UK?

    Sorry Bitza1984, never been in the UK before :eek:,I used to be in IT Security, try apply to everything at seek and register with talent2, hays, paxus and others, also search the forum I think there is one post somewhere with someone you can give a pm to ask for some agents numbers.

     

    Wish you the best of luck

    In the same boat here. My background is in Infrastructure support but been here 4 months now and only been able to get 3 interviews, all of which have said no!

     

    I spend most days searching jobs sites and have registered with some agencies. I notice a few Colin mentioned I haven't tried so I'll give them a go.

    Hi Guys,

     

    I am also in the IT field. My family are planning to move to Adelaide maybe end of march 2014.

    Hopefully I will have a job before I reach there. I am in the networking field.

    Jaws - wow are you finding looking for IT jobs down from Goolwa? There isn't much in SA outside Adelaide....and wow, you got your ACS assessment quick! Took me 12 weeks.....

     

    December is a rough time to be looking, but things should pick up again in the New Year.

    No luck at all, I'm thinking of changing my career to something less skilled but in high demand :unsure:

    Sorry to hear that Colin I'm not as specialized as you just standard desktop support roles, I hope something turns up for you. I'm not going to be in Adelaide until around May time but I think a different career may be the way forward.

    Can I ask folks what the jobs market is like for Oracle jobs... both development and admin? I'm moving out in a couple of months and this thread doesn't fill me with a great deal of confidence!
