Hi guys
Just looking for some advice, experience and overall opinion on the whole scene out there at the minute. How have you found the job seeking aspect, and living expenses? Any other general experience would be awesome. Cheers

Been in Melbourne since Sept 2008, I had no problem finding work just applied for jobs through the Seek website and signed up for some agencies. Had a six month contract in a call centre job within 2 weeks of starting my job hunt. Only lasted 2 weeks because working in a call centre made me want to kill myself, but I found another job straight away.

Living expenses - similar to the UK (assuming your from the UK), rent is slightly cheaper, if you are running a car petrol is half the price.

If you put in the effort to job hunting you should be able to find work with no problems.

I live in Sydney but have heard from a friend who's on a working visa from the UK that the food here is much more expensive than over there, but the clothes are cheaper :)
