On the job hunt in Sydney

(1/7) > >>

logictom:
So I am once again on the job hunt! Following on from my previous post from Oct 2 years ago I have successfully been granted a visa for myself and SWMBO to work in Australia for 18 months with the option to apply for permanent residency.
I have been working for a small start up for the past 2.5 years so have some experience and money saved up for trip.
I have been looking over the job websites, seek, mycareer, indeed, linkedin as well as a few others and applying to any jobs that look to match with what I am interested in.

I am aware that a lot of jobs don't make their way onto the big jobs sites and go via word of mouth and the likes so I am calling upon the eevblog collective to throw up any jobs they are aware of or any companies that maybe on the look out. I have found some luck through the odd google search and have looked through the list of companies in areas like the Australian Technology Park.

We are likely to be based in or around Sydney as SWMBO has already lined something up.
My areas of interest/experience are in 'embedded systems', both hardware and firmware sides of the product. I was working with technology in and supporting electric vehicles but I am open to any of the working sectors. I would prefer to be in a smaller startup/R&D type of company but again I am open to working with anything that keeps me interested and learning!

As always I appreciate any input.

How about trying to work as a consultant?

The thought crossed my mind, contacts would be the main issue on arrival though.
I may be doing some contract work for my current employer so that could work out well if I can bring in some other jobs.
I think I would prefer a 9 to 5 gig overall, at least I'll know what's coming in each month.

"Sydney" is a big place!
Murphy will ensure you have to travel 2 hours a day to get to and from work.

You won't find lists of companies in business parks. Best thing to do is spend an entire week pounding the pavement systematically going around every business park and looking for tech sounding names. Note them down then research them and and approach ones that sound interesting.
