Hi Karin

How long has your husband been out there and what does he think of it?

I can't wait to get there, it looks so nice!!

How old are your children, will they be going to the primary school there?

Sorry for all the questions.

Would be nice to keep in touch as i don't know anyone there.

Hi, we are new to the forum and are currently waiting on our visa 136.

We are hoping to move to Perth in June/July 2008 at latest.

My OH - Phil - is a carpenter/joiner so any info on where the work is, rates involved and nearest suburbs would be much appreciated!

Also, can anyone shed any light on what the best thing to do is when applying for jobs - is it best to apply before we go or wait until we get there and he can speak to people in person?

Hope to hear from you soon.

Hi The Moore Family,

How about a minbus taxi? They must have airport taxis like they do here. If I find anything I will let you know.

HERE IS THE UPDATED LIST:

Updated Lolylew with place to settle (sorry only just seen your PM)

Sorting out shipping stuff and just spoke to Letton Percival, who we are having our insurance through and they do a new policy now that costs 1.6% of the total cost of your valuables + 5% government levy but it now includes mould and mildew cover and pairs/sets cover. I thought this was very reasonable and a lot cheaper than our shippers who charge 3% for standard liability.

Hi Nicky

My husband has been there since 21st July and started work on 23rd July. My 2 youngest kids are 11(girl) and 9(boy) they are going to Comet Bay primary. Unfortunately my oldest son is 17 and not coming to Oz with us(which I'm devastated about) but I can't let it hold back everyone else, so I'm dreading the goodbyes(he is staying with my parents). Would love to keep in touch, we have got a rental in Newfound St, Secret Harbour.

Hi,
We are planning to go to Perth quite soon too. Got visa etc and hoping to be there before end of year.

Regarding jobs, I've fired my cv to numerous companies and agencies in Oz and had quite a lot of interest, but no concrete job offers yet.
May still get lucky.

Even if I don't get job offer before we go, at the very least, I've made contact with some of the companies, and have an idea of availability of jobs.

A couple of them have said that once we have house sold and have flights booked, to give them a call and they will arrange phone interviews and maybe have something fixed up for when we arrive.

I work in oil industry, so I've no idea about pay rates for your OH, but if you contact employers and agencies in WA, they will give you an idea of rates.

So I'd say, get on the net, and look at company and job search websites for WA and start firing them emails, and see if you get lucky.

Cheers,

Ian

Hi

He hasn't got a job yet, but has been speaking to a few companies who would like to see him when we get there. They don't seem very interested until you're actually in the country. How are you doing with the job hunting and when will you be arriving?
Keep in touch, i think i will need all the friends i can get as i don't know anyone in Australia and have never even been there before.
