Work as EE in Australia
« on: November 14, 2016, 12:24:17 am »
Hello everyone!
 I thought I can at least get some advises from some more experienced people in the blog’s community (especially those who are from Australia).

My name is Eshel, freshly graduate EE, with two years of experience in a start-up company. I am currently travelling in south east Asia. Anyhow, I was thinking of make big part my upcoming trip through Australia more interesting by looking for a contract job (short term) in any cool company that deals with technology. It doesn’t necessarily have to be pure engineer work, but hopefully something I can gain relevant experience.   :scared:

Here is where you come in: :-DMM
-   I have placed my resume on SEEK, is there any other place where I should post such a post as well? (don’t have linkedin)
-   General Do’s and Don’ts, regarding looking for a contractor job?
-   Does anyone from this great community might be able to give me concrete advises regarding might be needing assistance?
I will love to have any piece of advice, and please contact me directly for detailed information regarding my CV. Thank you all in advanced!
Cheers.
Eshel.

What kind of fruit specifically?

for ee
just keep looking at advertised jobs till something suitable comes up.
Look at it from their point of view, what are you offering that can help them?

Plenty more for a backpacker that knows how to wield a spanner and fix electrics/electronics.
Once you've re-wired a tractor and shown your worth, word gets around pretty quick. If you can do a valve job on a straight 6 on top of the electrics/electronics word gets around even quicker.

Do you have a working VISA (not a tourist VISA)?
Without one you will not get a job here.

Yeah, my visa is still working. Until it runs out of money.

If you don't have an Australian working Visa, you need to head here and look up the requirements and process to get the right visa. http://www.border.gov.au
