    Hello everyone,

    I got an offer of employment on the last day of 2012. Thank God! The employer is willing to have my 457 visa arranged even if I am 'offshore'. Mind you, it was really difficult looking for a job. As I've said before, Australian employers place residents and citizens on their priority list during the job hiring. They would consider interviewing offshore applicants, but then again, with the recent changes in the 457 visa standards, offshore applicants are placed way down in the priority list. There are still jobs out there, but you know, employers are not as open in recruiting offshore applicants/applicants without working visas as before.

    hi everyone!

    Would my 3 years ongoing work experience as a CCU (coronary care unit) nurse make a difference or enhance my chances of getting a job after a bridging course? thanks!

    Having 3+ years of experience in a specialty unit will indeed give you an edge over other applicants.

    it would be very difficult to find employment if you have very little nursing experience. some agencies require at least 2-3 years experience before they consider you for an interview. but i also know someone who doesn't have any experience, studied 1 year conversion program here in Australia, and was offered a job by the school's affiliated hospital.
