Just watch as those who claim they are fighting for their own freedom in Nigeria and have the right to self emancipation, will be the ones supporting the Israelis as they continue to hold on to land that is not theirs.

I still blame Britain for all that has happened to Palestine since the time the first Jewish settlers were allowed to come in from Poland, Austria, Ukraine, Germany etc, before and after the 2nd world war.

Hi all, congratulations to those who recently got their Visa's. I wish you guys speedy transition into the land of Oz, where good fortunes lie in wait. I want to encourage most you in healthcare and IT and most especially the (Civil/environmental/chemical/Electrical engineers and building professionals) that you are stepping into an infrastructure boom and a heating job market. I strongly encourage you guys to Leverage this environment however you can by applying common sense so you can integrate as soon as possible while such opportunities still persist. Please avoid getting here and focusing solely on non skilled roles, with the mindset that as time goes on you will have settled and then afterwards pursue your intended job. My point is the transition is very much feasible with appropriate due diligence. besides your chances grossly improve when you have genuine experience. For those without experience, Remixing lyrics or better still doing a part time internship while also working will help avoid back breaking hussle for too long. In summary, please remain encouraged because several NIGERIAN professionals have come through this process and are doing exceptionally well. I also believe you ought to commit your steps to God and also remain very dogged and resolute in your decision making process, to avoid making mistakes that can set you back from your intended goals.
The future is bright to all who can see the dawning of a new era in their lives.

Congrats once again.

God bless

Hi all, i am glad to finally make this post. The migration journey for me just ended. God has been EXTREMELY gracious to me. landing in this country with a little less than 1000 dollars in February last year, i have successfully graduated in my masters program, obtained a professional job as an environmental consultant while still on bridging visa, and achieved what i couldn't achieve in Nigeria in 5 years all within a stretch of 20 months. i am grateful to the guidance of so many people on this thread. ie Zenkel who showed me how to arrive australia through malaysia on a shoe string budget of 150k, Boss jennakry who enlightened me on opportunities i never knew existed and others who helped and encouraged me on the journey. i will settle down and summarize some important key information yet to be shared on this forum that will help enable new arrivals find a professional job, and also 476 visa holders looking for extra 5 points on what to do to dodge the english bedrock while drilling through to permanent residence. i will also like to encourage others going through a lot of pain and doubting their decisions especially those who came via school route with their partners, it can only get better, don't loose hope. stay focused, the light awaits you at the end of the tunnel.

Hey Peeps have some good news to share, so i just graduated and moved to Sydney from brisbane about a month ago. Today was my first day of work as an Environmental engineer with a reputable company. My advice to folks with engineering degrees, i believe the grass is greener here. you should just know how to apply wisdom in your search for opportunity.

I am new on this forum.

I am a chemical engineer and I presently have my IELTS results. I intend to apply for skilled independent (Subclass 189). I am about to start the process of the Competency Demonstration Report. Please can anyone assist me with a format used for the Continuing Professional Development (CPD) and Career Episode. Truth is I don't have any work experience as a chemical engineer.

bellong, jukeblam, catchdwind4rmkd, marlkinburg, oknee, chuckdee13 and other great captains of this very informative thread....i greet you all! my question goes thus, i hold a bsc in Geology with no work experience or formal engagement of any sort (except) ofcourse for my 11months industrial attachment with a construction company, where i was trained as a geotechnician. And my final year project which included some geotechnical analysis. Now, supposing i was applying for geotechnical engineer which is on the SOL list, would i possibly receive a positive assessment from EA Australia, seeing that i hold a b.sc and not a b.eng. Also will my 11months of IT experience coupled with my final year project work be considered in the place of 1 year experience?
pls i crave for your inputs on these.

Unfortunately I doubt you will qualify under this circumstances. You said you were trained as a geotechnician for about a year. You definately wouldn't be assessed as an engineer except you have 5yrs work experience. You would have to look for another pathway. You can enrol for environmental/geotechnical engineering masters, and apply afterwards if you have funding. A friend who has his PR went through this route. First degree geology second environmental and was added positively as a professional engr without an iota of work experience. Carefully consider your options.

Hi malkinburg,
Please which cities in oz have better opportunities for an instrumentation and control engineer.
Thanks.

Honestly I haven't researched that area and I wouldn't deceive you. No ideas on that for now. However, if I had my pr and that's my specialist area, I will head to western australia because I hear some firms running projects in south east Asia, western australia and northern territory have their recruiting offices there.

Can someone say something about this subclass 476
the subclass 476 visa is no different to the 485 subclass in terms of job considerations. Honest truth is companies don't want to employ and train u only for u to start explaining that your visa will run out soon. For engineers, what I have seen is offer of fixed term contracts on that category. If your deemed indispensable your sponsored. In black and white all that postwork and 476 visa era where jobs waited for you yafuyafu ended in 2012. My advice is come anyway and try your luck. Worst case you still make money doing semi skilled roles which are easier to come by.

I am a banker but I studied electrical and computer engineering ..which means my experience differs from my course

I believe the best route to follow is to align your self with a path you desire. It could IT related or engineering based or even project management or management consulting. If all you desire is getting a permanent comfy job with career progression, and not really adamant about chem eng, you can pull it off neatly. For example a friend who read agric eng in naija came in Feb2015 to read environmental eng. He got is PR in January and decided to bone school. He eventually got an entry level gig in IT with a multinational in Sydney based on carefully researched packaging. (What do they need, can I do it, or learn sharply? And finally how can I fit myself in.) He has boned his masters for now as he is more interested in havesting the dolls from the streets lol. Ne-ways when you come in hit me up so I could enlighten you on the little I know about the recruiting game in Australia. As for me. I'm moving to New south Wales from Brisbane to exploit the opportunities.

@malkinburg, please what is the job situation like there (specifically in WA & Queensland), for someone with experience in Plant Design, either in EPC or Engineering Consultancy. I have 9 years experience in Process Engineering Design of oil and gas plants/pipelines

Hmmmm for WA and Queensland, projects are slow for now. In QLD, the LNG plant is reaching the end of the design build stage. Lots of opportunities poped up when the project was hot. For now however, there aren't as much jobs for chemical as compared to other engineering professionals in both places especially for the major companies as a result of the slow down in mining & oil sectors. That is not to say that lateral hire opportunities don't exist with quiet specialist recruiters especially in Perth for companies which have presence globally and south east Asia. I believe with proper research and positioning you will find a good gig irregardless.

@malkinburg. Kindly update us on how to get the Australian experience through internships or industry placements. What steps do we take? Any particular 'packaging' to get us in? Any particular trainings we need to go through there to get in? How do I get the relevant experience in environmental engineering to be considered? Thinking and planning ahead, and I believe u, Bellong and co r positioned to enlighten and educate us. I got positive outcome this morning from EA as Engr technologist. Thanks.

Have you done your expression of interest? No time bro if you havnt. Asper opportunities for environmental related roles, it depends on the state you wish to settle in, the industries that interface with environmental applications, and your willingness to digress a little. So first of all you let me know your background and areas of interest and finally where you wish to settle in oz before I can break it down for you as there is no benefit in giving generic info in this case

Hello House,

Please I need some advice.

BSc Chemical Engineering
MSc Engineering Business Management
PMP certified
3 years+ working as a Project Controls Engineer (one year as a trainee)

I want to ask if I am qualified to apply under Engineering Manager category or I should apply under Professional Engineer category.

The thing is I have no work experience as a Chemical Engineer but a lot of the stuff I do at work falls under the Engineering Manager category.

I would appreciate your advice. Thanx

If you don't require the points for work experience then I suggest you stick to professionally engineer as it is straight forward and without any drama. It doesnt matter if you havent got work experience as a chemical engineer. U can use SIWES, plant design and final year project for your CDR. You can even use assignments in courses or second year SWEP programme if your school does it. What is important is your communication of what you did, why you did it and how u did it in the personal engineering activity section.

So one person can fill 2 heterogeneous EOIs?
[.quote author=malkinburg post=46465165]

I am sure you will get a response this week with EA. If you have your 60points on lockdown you will indeed get your invite for 189 by June22. You can also apply for NSW (190) sponsorship with swift chances of getting selected. Make sure not to use one EOI for both because you don't know which one will come first. I used seperate EOI's and got both invitations 189 & 190. I'm running with 189 though. Asper my masters I did it in Griffith uni in queensland. Its quite flexible there and you can apply for credits for prior learning so u get advanced standing and shorten your masters from 2yrs to 1.5yrs or if you are doing the 1.5yr option you can shorten to 1yr. However u won't be elligible for post work study if you pull this stunt. Therefore the only alternative is to get the 8points with the ielts and skip the postworkstudy to PR straight, which is what I did.
If you come via PR, in my opinion, it will be useless to do a masters. You should only consider it if you get a job. Then you can run it part time. You should instead focus on getting Australian experience through internships or industry placements. No one here really cares about your grades or number of degrees but your experience.

Yes. I'm not the first and won't be the last.

Don't include it bro. I understand you. It's not as if u don't want to do your masters, maybe u just want to migrate. Don't include your Bsc. Even during visa application, don't include it. When writing your Statement of Purpose, use those years you spent in the uni as your work experience related to the program u wanna do at TAFE.

My candid opionion is he should include it else he can't use it at immigration for papers. He should however write a convincing statement of purpose on why he is switching careers

@malkinburg, need input from you. Was ur CDR fast track? If so, how many days did it take to get an outcome? What's the job outlook for chemical engineers(i graduated as one)? I assume u r already in. OZ.Thanks.

Yea I did fast track. I am in oz. Came in as a student in Feb2015. Just finished my masters in environmental engineering here in brizzy. As per job outlook, its based on your experience and interest. As of now oil and gas isn't booming, so most most related opportunities in that sector are quite difficult to come by. If you are flexible, you can switch to the. Environmental sphere like water & waste water treatment, process safety or remediation engineer as environmental regulation is taken seriously and there are lots of brownfields. However if you want to get into plant design & operation, u can run a 6months course in Perth to bolster your chances of getting a gig. If u still like book package, enough research opportunities dey. Overall, by Gods grace when you come u will nicely fit yourself in.

Asper my fast track, it took one week for first response. Afterwords I had to do some corrections and add more documentation. When I submitted, I was given positive assesment the same working day.

@bellong,

I'm asking on behalf of a friend.He studied chemical engineering for his Bsc and has Msc computer science.He has been in IT ever since(about 8years now)
Do you think his Msc computer science from Unilag is enough to get a positive assesment from ACS?

It will be easier to use the engineer route. I also have chemical engineering for undergrad and 10 plus experience in other roles. I did my assessment and got positive assesment as a chemical engineer despite this. I guess it depends on the quality of your CDR. Another advantage is the occupation ceiling never fills up so getting an invite is sharp sharp. I got invited with 60points just after one day of expressing my eoi. IT is too competitive

I just found out that my undergraduate course (petroleum engineering) will be removed from sol list on 1st on July. I have decided to apply for pr before that time. I was already studying for pte as I planned to take it by June ending. I need help writing my cdr. Any information you have that you feel may benefit me, please pass it on.

cc bellong, scrollmeout



Bro if your planning to write pte end of June, its not possible to beat the July first deadline for 189, as average wait time for pet engineers is 4 to 6 weeks for invitation after submitting eoi. Other engineering like agric/environmental have reached their occupation ceilings. If I were you I will switch my attention to regional area in NSW as they still sponsor 489 for pet engr in two places last I checked. Pls do confirm. Another way to go about it is to make one of your episodes shitty and don't claim any experience in your CDR. That way you might be given engineering technologist upon positive assesment, which is still on the 189/190 list. So your call.

It was the general test...I'm in the UK.
I'm only looking at PTE because of some posts I've seen on this thread, suggesting it is easier than IELTS.

With this your " don't even think about it " statement, I'm confused...why?

This question is for everyone in the house, PTE or IELTS, what would you recommended for someone who's trying to clinch the max points for English?... my first IELTS was 8.5, 7, 8, 8.5 - L, R, W, S.

The reason why I said you should not think about the pte if your in oz is because I believe their server or should I say their marking engine is tweaked for the paki/Indian dudes. Yet to see any Nigerian who has scored more than 59 on the speaking here in oz. But people who write from nigeria come off with fatanstic scores. Since your in the UK you could try it out. I believe your problem in the reading is the true false not given or yes no not given. Brush up and do the ielts again. Its way easier in my opinion.

Greetings to y'all and to Bellong for a nice job weldone!
As we all know the economic implication of the 573 visa subclass, my question is if it's possible, within the 573 visa period of 2yrs to switch to the 189 or 190 before the end of the 2 yrs. This means you have to be in Australia to do this and without any intention of claiming points on work experience. Does anyone know how possible this might be and whatever implications it might have?
Regards to y'all

Its quite possible. My friend whom we came in together on 573 in Feb 2015 got his pr in 11months. He was doing masters in UWS Sydney. I am also enroute. My original certificate delayed my ENgineers Australia assesment since I think have it on me. But in my honest opinion its best you just concentrate and come in here one time on PR. Makes life easy. Its not easy to joggle school/work stress with ielts and pr waka.

Plan well.
