Hi there all
I am taking a giant leap forward in my career and life, and have started the process of applying for my Work Visum for Australia. I am still on the right side of 30, have worked in both the private and public sector for 10 years and looking forward to further my career. My main aim is to settle in Melbourne since it seems like a wonderful city to live in and the prospects of relocating to a world city (even though they have some transport problems) is very appealing to me and my wife.
Are there any Oz planners who would be able to give me some advice perhaps on what I can expect over there? Next year this time I'm visiting for a holiday and would like to arrange some work interviews if possible. I know we will be able to adjust and the transition won't be too bad if we know what to expect.
Is the planning profession in OZ in a healthy state? I graduated Cum Laude and first in my class from the University of Pretoria, South Africa. As I understand it my Degree would be accepted in Oz, but I would probably have to write an acceptance exam or the exam enabling me to practise over there.
Please could anyone help me. What do you think? Am I making a mistake or not?
