Finding Work Overseas

So I'm at that time of year again where I consider moving overseas. It's not likely to happen but I'll ask and waste your time anyway.

I'm currently living in Australia. For sometime I've wanted to go and live and work overseas for a year or so. But being the pessimist that I am, I don't want to leave Australia without knowing that I already have a job to goto. So my question is, how do I go about this? I've looked at job websites etc but am not really sure if I'm on the right track. I've looked at the UK, Dubai and Singapore and would obviously need to find accommodation etc.

So as to my qualifications you ask. Well I hold an Advanced Diploma of Business in Management and Marketing, issued from a local Tafe. Recognised around Australia, but is pretty much only useful for wiping your ass when you've eaten that mysterious road side sausage on a stopover in Bangkok, internationally. I've worked in legal administration for the past two years and managed small businesses.

I don't know much about it, but I'm assuming you can work in the UK, seeing as Oz and Britain are kinda related  Smile Google UK jobs and I'm sure you'll find something.

Good luck

Seriously, try London. As you probably know there's loads of AU, NZ and SA folks working here.

I see many of them looking at this TNT magazine, offering job adverts, advice etc.

And of course theres the more official stuff.

You'll love it though. I know several Australians in London and they all enjoy it.

Good luck!

The short skirt and picking up dry cleaning dosn't suit me. I work in the financial side of legal administration.

It wouldn't be hard to find a job out here. Every province, especially BC and Alberta, are running short of people to employ.



No matter how random things may appear, there's always a plan.

I have a Masters in Biotechnology and a MBA degree (well almost, will get my degree in November this year)..still cant find a damn job in Australia. I was called for a couple of interviews, and they said "sorry mate, we found someone more experienced than you, but thanks for your time"  irked 

I really need to start looking overseas...maybe Singapore, or heck, even India or China. I just need a stable, full-time job.

And they tell us we have a skills shortage.

There are plenty of jobs down here, but I don't think the Biotech industry here is very big.

Have you looked outside of ADL? Quite a few places here in MEL seem to be screaming for people. And if you are prepared to move to Canberra, it wouldn't be hard to pick up a damn good public service position. I'm seriously considering the move myself as it's easier to get a good promotion in my department up there than here. As the saying is at the office, in Canberra, all a management level employee does is photocopying.......... But then again, there's more than a few people I work with who are highly qualified engineers, former scientists & the like working the phones here...... We even had a former Ansett FO work with us for a while after they went bust. There's plenty of work here for the taking, but it depends on what jobs you want to do & are qualified for.........

There are loads of public service positions here in Canberra. But be warned, we are in a housing shortage at the moment and thus rents and property prices are quite high.

Yup..but this place is not too big with the Biotech industry. I'll wait till I finish my MBA..then look for jobs in MEL or SYD. But right now, I'm fine with some part-time work...but can't go on like this forever..lol.

Yeah, I know... I'll proably end up renting in somewhere like Quenbeyan... though I've got a cousin who lives in Isabella Plains & that seems to be a nice area. The plan is to try for a decent promotion & stay there for a year or so before applying for a transfer back home. Whenever anything decent comes up down here, every man & his dog seems to put in an application.

Yep, people question why we have a skills shortage. This is the awnser.
