People come to Indians in Sydney actively looking for answers.

Below of some of the responses from our members

Trying to answer it with an assumption you are coming alone and without any job.
1. The foremost thing which many people wont tell you is the Driving Verification letter you should get from RTO stating your full name (as in Passport), License number, first issue date, validity and class on a letter head. Its called confirmation letter. When you pass your driving test in Australia you will be asked for it (80% chances). If you can’t get it you will be given provisional license and not full license.
2. Goods to be bought: Get basic utensils like a pressure cooker, small non stick pan , rolling pin (not wooden) etc. You do get everything in Australia but are quite costly. Knowing you won’t be earning for atleast a month, don’t overspend here.
3. Purchase some woolens for sure. Melbourne is colder than Sydney. Depends where you land and which weather you choose – Be ready to brave the cold. One light jacket and one heavy one – would be good to go with.
4. Purchase some good formals for the interviews you will have to give in the coming time. Don’t go for overly coloured once. Keep them neutral – Greys, blue, black and whites. Ok maybe some mauve and baby pink ( part of power dressing)
5. Transferring money – Stock yourself for 2-3 months. Talking about Sydney, get atleast 1500 AUD per month. This is for normal standard of living in suburbs and not city.Check this calculator
I got money through ICICI world money card. You can get Cash but its not safe as you will living in share house in beginning.
6. Documents: Bring your medical records, Work Documents, Passport( for sure ), Visa grant letter. Your educational certificates are not needed so dont carry that extra burden.You can always keep them as soft copy 🙂
7. And be mentally ready for the struggle – Update your linkedin. Find jobs though SEEK – Australia’s no. 1 jobs, employment, career and recruitment site. Check your referrals for job. Opt for odd job if you become very desperate. Else please don’t do it. You will get out of focus. I focused totally to get a job from Day 1. It will be very difficult to maintain calm but you have to.
8. Gumtree Australia and – you can find accommodation.
And do Join Facebook groups for Indians like “Indian in Sydneyy”. You will get help
Should I Migrate to Australia

Australia is an excellent destination for migrants. It has a diverse, vibrant culture, and provides countless opportunities for those looking to start a new life abroad. The healthcare system is top-notch and the education system ranked highly on international scales. Plus, the country’s incredible natural beauty and great climate make it an even more attractive option. Those considering migrating should do their research, but if they’re looking for a safe, dynamic environment in which to begin anew then Australia could be the ideal spot.

Australia is a great example of a multicultural society where everyone belongs. The diverse range of cultures and religions that are celebrated in Australia demonstrates its acceptance of different backgrounds and beliefs. This makes Australia an exciting and vibrant country that encourages people from all walks of life to come together, share their experiences, and be accepted into the broader community. As more immigrants continue to come to Australia, it is important that we continue to foster an open and inclusive attitude towards all those who live here.

Decision should be made yourself and your personal circumstances. Suggest you to contact a registered migration agent for a thorough eligibility assessment to find out your options for different Visa pathway such as Skilled Independent Visa, State Sponsored Visa, Regional Visa etc. the outcome of the assessment would guide you determine the next steps you would need to take. Best of luck.

How to land your first job in Australia?
First thing first – Before you start applying for positions take some time to go over your CV that’s most important. In my opinion, Australian CVs should not only includes your experiences but your highlights, your accomplishments, expand a little bit more than just bullet points but don’t overdo it.
Now for the job search – It is one of the most popular and used by most of the companies
Again please note these above sites have very little options for temporary workers
For those who wants Govt jobs –, which requires you address certain selection criteria
Temporary / casual jobs :, local newspaper, 3 Fs( family, friends, Flatmates) and sometime Neighbors as well so be good to them 🙂
Some people try to find job whilst offshore, for those LinkedIn is your answer. Update your profile and search for recruiter Sydney. there are plenty of agencies across Australia you can drop your CV to. When you here organize meeting with them, they are lovely people:) o well some of them 😛
Friends and family – Believe it is not, it works here in Australia as well
Interview – Remember to learn as much as you can regarding the company, Their vision, employees, Offices – You should understand the employer, the requirements of the job. You should be able to articulate your skills with their vision. The more research you conduct, the more you’ll understand the employer. Basically you want to tell them, you the best candidate for the job. Another key to interview success is preparing responses to expected interview questions, your goal should be composing detailed yet concise responses focussing on examples and specially your accomplishments. There are various sites which can help you with this
Final thing – have patience & have faith 🙂 Well that’s the most important thing. Some people get frustrated when not finding their dream role. for those people you need to understand doesn’t matter how much experience you have back home, you are starting fresh here so patience is the key.
by Gagan Bindra: Through this post, I am trying to create a little piece of information based on my own personal experiences and knowledge. Please note I am not expert in this field nor from HR background. This post will be in few different pieces based on the scenarios from the messages. It may help you or may not. It can be long and boring so read at your own risk 🙂
First Scenario – If you are looking to break in any sort of job. Suits international students with part-time work or anyone looking to get into workforce in any sort of job.
a) A good RESUME RESUME RESUME. I cannot emphasize the importance of having a good resume. It does not have to be one page or five pages. Two pages will suffice for any sort of non-skilled work. You do not have to have experience in the same field as long as you got some sort of experience. Even if you do not have any experience, write your life experience, your teamwork when you played sports. Anything like that but there must be something. If you are applying jobs online, you must attach a COVER LETTER outlining your experience, skills and what will be you bring to the job. How your previous experience and life experience is relevant to the job. I was talking to one mother who is trying to get back to workforce after 10 years. I told her as a mother she runs one of the most difficult job which including managing children, sticking to time frame when taking them to school, preparing their lunches. USE THAT. This does work. Australian recruiters/company love life experiences.
b) Now if online is not working for you then you must step outside your comfort zone and go to local shops, shopping centres. Have your resume ready (no cover letter needed). Politely ask to speak to the owner of the business or manager. Do not go during peak hours (lunchtime etc). Once you see the owner/business manager, introduce yourself, tell me briefly about yourself and then hand out your resume. You will need to this for every shop. You may get lucky same day, in few days and will get call back. If not then go back again in 2 to 3 weeks’ time, try to speak the same person and remind them that you are following up the application. This way you are showing them you are a keen person and you understand the value of time and follow up.
(i) When you are going in the public handing out your resumes, you must dress appropriately. You do not need to wear a suit but ensure you look professional. You must go in a sense that you are ready to start the same day. If you shave, make sure you are clean-shaven. If you keep beard, make sure it is trimmed. If you wear turban, make sure it is nicely tied. For females, you are dressed nicely and looking smart.
c) Communication – If you have cleared the above two, your last hurdle is communication. Make sure you are able to effectively communicate with the recruiters, owner of the business or managers. They would like to see you are a good communicator irrespective if you are going to work in customer services or not. If you are lack these skills, there are plenty or resources available on the internet. Use them Guys!
Now above things will definitely work if you are ready for any sort of part-time jobs. You must not give up after a day or week. You must keep on trying it repeatedly and make sure to go back to same places repeatedly. This will give you edge over the other candidates or get you over the rope.
Second Scenario – This is for skilled professional people and I got lot of messages saying that they are struggling to crack their first job and do not have “local experience”.
Before I start guys. Look around you. Which migrants had local experience before their first job? None of us? However, did we land in jobs? Yes we did. So stop talking about “local experience”.
a) Now you face challenge in your industry in which many hundreds are usually competing for few jobs. You must make sure how you are going to be different from usual “Joe Blogg” What are you going to bring on the table for recruiter. Why should they hire you and not others? Coming back to basics again. You must have a professional solid resume outlining your work and professional history in a very professional manner (does not matter which country). If you need assistance correcting your resumes, see a professional. You must have spent thousands of dollars to attain those qualifications so why not a spend little bit more to get your resume professional assessed. A recruiter typical may get hundreds of applications; you must have a start of the art resume to compel the recruit to call you for an interview. Once you are called for an interview, you are competing with a lot less people and now it will come down to your personality and skills to get that job (which we will talk about later)
b) There may be cases where you are not able to get a kick-start in your career after months and months. Then you need to probably look into getting into work force in a different capacity or undertake a small training course etc to up-skill yourself to compete in this competitive world. There is no harm in doing that. You will learn new things every day that will eventually help you. But must stay positive and do not give up.
c) If you get call for an interview, be ready for it, prepare for it. I cannot put emphasize on preparing and preparing for an interview. Being in a new country and first interview may be very daunting but you must learn how to attend an interview. Many recruiters/companies/organisations have different interview techniques. You must be aware of all those and get as much as information you can. The STAR method is very commonly used in which you must have a structured manner of responding to a behavioral-based interview question by discussing the specific Situation, Task, Action, and Result of the situation you are describing. One-panel interviews are becoming less and less and you present yourself in front of four different panels who specifically ask you four different question and let you answer for 5 minutes describing STAR. Try to speak to as many as people who have attended interviews recently (does not have to be in your field). Once you attend an interview, you are not just responding to questions but you are selling yourself in those 20 minutes that why you are the best person for the job.

By Tina Sancheti

1. Short and concise CV

2. CV should highlight roles / responsibilities/ skills / achievement

3. Highlight your skills in line with role. It will reflect how you will add value to the company

4. quote relevant and good examples of your achievements.

5. Cover letter should not be very detailed but in brief should catch attention that someone wants to look at your CV.

6. if there are specific requirements asked – like questions to answer – please answer them carefully.

7. Behavioral type question are key ! How well you communicate and how positive and open minded you are in considering view points is important


By Tejas Gabani

As we see too many people in this group requesting for help with their initial job search, I thought of putting some pointers together that may help those who have recently immigrated, people who are planning to immigrate and those who are on student visa. I have also tried to highlight the key differences between the recruitment process in India and here. Some of the thoughts below can be more applicable to non-IT fields than IT related fields.

* In India, your degrees need to look good (e.g. MBA, B.Tech., CA), your colleges need to be premier (e.g. IITs, NITs, ISB, IIMs) and CV needs to look versatile and comprehensive. If you have all of these, then getting a well paying job is a cakewalk. If you have some of these, then too you are set for a good career ahead. It’s because these are the easiest filters for Indian companies to differentiate better candidates from thousands who are available in the market at a time. Unfortunately, none of these is relevant when you arrive here, so it’s important that you set your expectations right and act smartly before and after you move.

* Remember that you are moving to an English speaking country. Sharpening your verbal and written communication skills is the very least that you can do as the first step. We all see so many posts in the groups with numerous spelling and grammar mistakes. Well, no one expects us to be like Shakespeare (thankfully!) but we should be able to speak/ write clearly and correctly before we call ourselves ready for a job. It may not apply to some IT jobs where communication isn’t much important but it’ll definitely help you crack a job and progress better in the job. A certain score in PTE or IELTS doesn’t prove that you have mastered the art of conversing with people because no one checks your score when you go out in the market. It may sound harsh but this is the most important skill one should have because you are going to compete with native English speakers and others who are much more aligned with the Westerners culturally.

* One CV doesn’t work for all jobs or even similar type of jobs. Employers don’t want to know what else you can do, but they are more interested in knowing how well you can do precisely what has been asked in the job description. This is opposite of how it works in India. So, it’s important to customise the CV a bit to address each job position. If your skills or profile don’t match with the role/ requirements, then don’t waste your time applying – you will not be shortlisted. Invest that time to improve the quality of applications for more relevant positions.

* Absurdly long CVs or CVs showing much higher level of experience don’t work. No point in showing your group delivery management skills when applying for a position of an entry-level tester. Adjust your CV level in accordance to the job you are applying for. Apply with a goal of winning that job – forget about anything else.

* Work smartly. You are investing your precious time, money and energy in your initial phase here, so make sure you use them efficiently. Try to give an international/ Australian touch to your CV, cover letter and language in general. If your documents or email themselves suggest strongly that you are new to the country, then your chances of getting shortlisted will worsen. In most of the fields here, applicants to jobs ratio is already very high so you don’t want your chances to go further down. e.g. Avoid “Dear Sir/ Madam”, write friendly yet professional emails, personalise cover letter to talk about company/ product, etc. Good personalisation can sometimes touch the hearts(!). Fifteen mins of quick research about each company you are applying to can improve your application quality by a great extent (only if you wanted to!).

* Your communication with HR or recruiters shouldn’t suggest that you are in desperate need of a job. Maintain your dignity and don’t oversell yourself. In India, recruiters often chase you for the new positions but don’t expect the same here. They may not even call back at times because there are many applicants for a position and the recruiter won’t get back to each one. Unlike India, this is not a fast-growing economy so jobs are limited and 10 good applications just won’t cut it unless you are simply lucky or have good/ local experience in a niche area. In many cases, submitting even 50 high-quality job applications is not ‘enough’ and it may be quite early for you to conclude that you’ve tried too hard. Always give a higher priority to the jobs posted by employers/HR though they are less common. Recruiters will push those applications which are more likely to convert (as they have their commissions linked to it) and newbies in the country don’t fall in that pool generally unless the skill is rare.

* Most of the non-executive positions here require hands-on skills, not degrees or management experience. Try to demonstrate your skills in your CV and interviews. Educational merits or length of work experience don’t help without enough skills even though they do in India. e.g. A marketing manager with hands-on graphic design or ERP experience is much more valuable here than a brand manager with advertising and ‘talking’ skills. When you feel frustrated about rejections, try to think why should someone hire you and not the locals – and then act/ improve accordingly.

* Do enough research about job market in your fields much before arriving here. If the market gives you a shock after your arrival, then it’s you who must be blamed. No excuses at all. This is even more applicable to students who come here to study. Come with aspirations to study, succeed and then settle. But, if your aim is just to get PR ‘somehow’ then you are wasting your time and money and that of your family. No fun in studying a 4-yr degree to end up working in a restaurant at not-so-legal wages. It clearly means that either your research about course, college, job market, or visa requirements wasn’t good enough or you didn’t acquire enough skills during your degree to find a suitable job. Both situations will disappoint you and your family. There are always some graduate jobs in the market for you to grab if you are good enough.

* Keep a strong focus on jobs within your skill area – don’t deviate. You can start casual jobs if needed but always have a fixed/ final aim. At the same time, develop a strong understanding of the job market in your field. As soon as you realise that it’ll be very hard to find a job in your area (because jobs almost don’t exist), then try to upskill/ prepare yourself to enter any other relevant/ new field in which more jobs exist and your interests lie. Always be ready to learn and adapt quickly. Ideally, if you were to change the field then it’s always better to learn the new skills in India before you move here. Training is much cheaper and easily available there. If you are living in a large city in India (particularly in South), then there are a number of training institutes that can train you (even remotely in some cases) on various technology areas. If you decide to do a course after coming here, it’s not a bad choice either but it will be more expensive. Of course, there are some exceptions where you will need local certifications only, e.g. childcare educator. But, there are also professions for which one can get trained in India very easily and just complete a short course here to polish their skills and get a certificate, which can save your time and get you started sooner, e.g. salon artist or Indian chef. No matter what you decide to do – it should be backed by thorough research and planning in advance. If you are entering a new field, then target unpaid positions or those with a low salary – they will be easier to get and may get you started with the new experience building exercise sooner. After you have some good experience and skills, it will not matter as long as the market has enough jobs in that field.

* Try to work on some basic traits/ skills that are more valued in the Western/ Australian work culture than in India – attention to detail, accountability, punctuality, reliability, sense of humour, local language peculiarities, awareness of local issues/ news/ way of life etc. Voice your opinions but avoid a vague or uninformed talk – some cultures back home embrace it, but it may not work here. Sydney has very multi-cultural workplaces, so try to develop your awareness about other countries, cultures, etc. It will help you mingle more with others. Assimilation into the local culture is very important (doesn’t mean changing your values) and it can be very challenging for mid-age immigrants and their families but one should try their best. If you are a student, then try to spend maximum time with local students and those from other countries. All this is much more important than it sounds.

* Keep looking for paid/ unpaid internship positions – literally everywhere, including Gumtree. You never know where you may find your luck. It will help you get into the local workforce and start carving your path while learning for free. No harm in writing to your ideal employers about opportunities (paid or unpaid) if you feel that there’s a very strong match between your skills and what they do. Don’t copy/ paste and send the same email to multiple people though – customise it wherever possible. It shouldn’t look like spamming, else it will easily stand out. No job is a bad job as long as you know that it was your best effort (which is often not!).

* Lastly – observe, learn and improve. You learn so much unknowingly just by observing things and people around you. Even a well-written email from someone can silently give you a couple of nice tips. If you have 5+ years of work exp, you won’t need someone to teach you how to make a CV or how to act in an interview. You know it all – just trust yourself but never stop your self-learning and improvement journey. You’ll get there eventually if you knew where you want to be even though the journey may look unpredictable initially.

Hope this helps people who are in need! Wish you all the best.
