    Hi BimalwBedi,

     

    The Adelaide job market is horrendous. I've never experienced anything like it. I don't know anything about your specific job, so I can't offer any specific advice. I would advise trying one of the bigger cities instead, but if your husband is here already, I guess you have no choice.

     

    'Seek' is the best jobs website, so have a look on there. I would also consider having your CV professionally re-done by an Australian CV writer, so it meets the specific requirements that HR departments seem to have here.

     

    Good luck!

    I know nothing about 1) and 2) but I presume you have people skills and an ability to sell yourself so I guess that would be good for many jobs including getting a job. Adelaide is like a giant town though be warned it is who you know not what you know. Be warned if you get call backs this is often just to poke at you and see if you may be of value to them. I guess if your husband works here he would advise best you and help you start to build contacts.

     

    Unfortunately in a lot of areas they do not really count overseas experience, bizzare but there you go. As the other poster mentioned perhaps getting an Australian/Adelaide professional to assist in your CV.

     

    There are jobs in Adelaide just very, very, very hard to find, hard to find, hard to find as the PM would say would say and not going to be easier anytime soon.

     

    Good Luck !
