Great job prospects in Australia, but how do I get there?


 

Finding A Job In Australia When You Studied, Lived And Worked In The Philippines.

 

DISCLAIMER:

THIS BLOG POST WILL GIVE YOU A VERY BRIEF OVERVIEW OF SKILLED MIGRATION TO AUSTRALIA. THE PROCESS ITSELF ENTAILS MUCH MORE AND WE URGE YOU TO GET IN TOUCH WITH A REGISTERED MIGRATION AGENT TO ENSURE SMOOTHAND SEAMLESS OUTCOME.

A recent business insider article demonstrated favourable job prospects for work in Australia. Professionals from the Philippines could be forgiven in thinking, “hey, let’s pack our bags and check this out and see if there is something in it for me?”

The fact of the matter is, yes, there is something in it for experienced and skilled Filipino workers who are contemplating a sea change and migrating permanently to Australia.

Unfortunately it isn’t as simple as packing your bags and taking the next possible flight out. It’s actually a journey, and one that will see you change as an individual, as well as a professionalin order to become qualified to pursue your career overseas.

If you’re willing to undergo such a transformation and realize that aspiration of transitioning into Australia and nailing that dream job over there then this blog post will kick start that voyage.

The three permanent pathways to Australia

You have three options to choose from when migrating to Australia under the current SkillSelect visa program. Of the three, two allow you to be a permanent resident upon arrival. These are Class SI subclass 189 and Class SN subclass 190.

The processes uses a pointing system to determine whether you’re eligible to migrate to Australia. The department of immigration manages this system and refers to them in Schedule 6D. It’s split into 13 parts, with each part providing you an opportunity to score or accumulated points, the minimum required (at the time of writing) being 60 to pass the process and hopefully acquire an invitation to migrate.

As an example, let’s say you’re 28 years old, can prove you have superior English language abilities, worked for five years in your skilled profession and have a bachelor degree from a Section 1 university in the Philippines (more on this in a later blog).

If that’s the case then you are definitely in a ‘migration sweet spot’ with potentially 75 points! You’re the ideal candidate, therefore, much more competitive in the eyes of the Department of Immigration and Border Protection (and that’s just four out of thirteen sections to score from in Schedule 6D.)

Note: The above scenario is the ideal candidate but what if you’re not but still have the opportunity to migrate by accumulating more points under other parts of Schedule 6D? What then?

The third SkillSelect visa option is the Class SP subclass 489, which is a two stage visa application that will eventually lead a permanent resident visa, but still uses the same pointing system in securing their SkillSelect visa grant.

Over the course of our 18 year history, Respall Migration Australia has developed a tried and proven methodology for Filipinos to access themselves with this pointing system to see if they can make that ‘pass mark’. It’s crucial to get that initial assessment done accurately, and not try to ‘game or play’ the system for a few extra points.
