It happens every day, hundreds of information technology professionals land in Melbourne Australia for the first time. They come with dreams and aspirations, some wanting to make it BIG in this land of opportunities, some looking for a better life, some searching for a peaceful life.
Regardless of the reasons or the circumstances, one thing is same for most if not all of them. Each and every one of the new immigrants wants a decent IT job. It starts from there, some come with vast IT job experience and some have limited Information Technology job or help desk experience from overseas.
The struggle begins, the resume, the cover letter, what to put in the resume what to omit, how many pages, how many years of experience is enough, how to apply, what to say to the recruitment consultant or prospective employer on the telephone, how to dress up for the interview if called for one. For some the “call” never comes and desperation sinks in.
IT jobs in Melbourne for freshers are limited and there is immense competition, similarly entry level IT jobs in Melbourne are fiercely competed by local Australians. Some experienced Information Technology immigrants also try to apply for help desk jobs in Melbourne but unfortunately they are rarely given a chance as they are “over-qualified”.
The question remains, how to get an IT job in Melbourne and the answer lies in this secret recipe. I believe the following items is missing in most if not all of prospective immigrants’ job application:
- Australian IT job market loves certifications and certified professionals
- Local Australian IT work experience and local reference
- Standard Australian resume with no Date of Birth, picture and the statement
