We have not moved to Australia, we are still living in Blighty. We just went to Australia to validate the visa but now we are home again.

Getting job in AUS is not easy task. Until unless you have local AUS exp, be ready for a tough time!

AUS market is very different than India ( I think you are from India). Its very competitive. Even if you get PR and land there...make sure you have backup plans for at least 6 months!

I am SAP consultant..it's a highly skilled profession. I have also PR. I am trying to get a job in AUS from last 6 months. But response is not +ve. After applying for at least 500 jobs, got response from only around 10 agents..was able to secure only one.( actually that also missed because I could not join within in one week's time). After that again no response at all.

Very sad to hear that
My friend went to UK and he was able to get 4 job offers in london within one week and accepted one of them. Situation seems to be weird. However that also depends on one's occupation. He was Dotnet expert and there are alot of dotnet jobs in UK. However I have no idea of software development jobs especially dotnet in Australia.
How much backup plan is required (in $$$) for a couple to survive for 6 months atleast. ??

Well said Aman. I think you will find that once you are here it will be much easier and the agents will be much more willing to talk. We've just hired someone who had been in the country only 3 weeks - apparently there was quite a few applications from people with PR but who weren't in Australia yet - every single one of them went into the rubbish bin.

I don't know Its the way you wrote in on here. You wrote that you never got your visa so it seemed like you were refused it Basically a misunderstanding on my part, I will have to learn how to interpret better I think what you meant to say was "I still havn't got my visa" rather than "i never got my visa" Anyway, im happy you are still in the game and im sure it wont be long till you get the great news

Thanks Wilson.
That is not your misunderstanding. Infact that is my poor english which caused misperception. By the way I am taking classes of english so that I could make you understand properly when I am in Australia.

Plenty of people with PR living in Australia for years doing other type of work before they actually secure a job in their industry, local Australian experience is the key.

But its all part & partial of the fun of moving to a new and exciting country.

yup excitement is there...but how someone can again work in their profession after a gap of few years! I forget everything even if I am out of touch for few months!

I agree. And I can't see how working as a taxi driver in Australia for two years would provide me with the necessary "local experience" to equip me for the Australian accountancy profession.

The taxi drivers I encountered must have been fresh off the plane then.
