I have just completed my new grad year in New Zealand and my husband has just got employment in Sydney in Australia so we are planning to move there before the end of the year. My new grad placement comprised of two six month placements - six months gen. surg including a surgical assessment unit and six months emergency nursing. I would like some advice re applying for jobs in Sydney.
What kind of information are nurses commonly asked at Australian interviews? For example in NZ you can expect to be asked about how you apply the principles of the Treaty of Waitangi to your practice are there similar Australian specific questions that I should be aware of?
With only one years experience what kind of jobs can I reasonably expect to get? I have really enjoyed ED and would love to keep working in an acute environment, I also really enjoyed surgical nursing and prior to training as a nurse I worked as a support worker in mental health and liked that. I am a good nurse - but a good first year nurse so a bit anxious about applying for jobs.
Is it better to apply online for NSW govt jobs or to send paper copies of your application?
I guess any advice that other nurses think would be helpful in this situation would be greatly appreciated
