    ozzie testing jobs

    folks

    i'm thinking of moving to australia, i'd
    like to get an idea from any ozzie testers
    on how the job market out there is really
    like for UAT/winrunner testers(3 yrs exp)?

    I've looked at seek, and jobnet sites, but
    they seem to post the same job a million
    times, so its hard to get a real picture, any
    help will be much appreicated

    thanks
    g

    Ozzie? I'd love to work with the legend from Black Sabbath! Hmmmm.. I didn't know Ozzie Osbourne was writing software these days. Is it a pill management system? Speech articulation enhancer? Oh! you mean Aussie! ;-D.

    Re: ozzie testing jobs

    What would you test him for ?

    The number of illegal substances he has abused over the years? his quadbike driving ability ? or maybe you might want to nominate him for father of the year ?

    Re: ozzie testing jobs

    Guys,

    I know that this is a terrible break with tradition around here but I thought it might be nice to.....

    ANSWER THE ACTUAL QUESTION!!!!!!!!!!

    Gurdev,

    seek.com.au is the place to look, especially from out of town.

    The Australian market is a little interesting at the moment. From my point of view it appears to have picked up nicely. All of my "agents" are calling regularly to set me up for new jobs etc and I look like being in work for a year or so.

    That said, I know a number of people who can't seem to even get a phone call no matter what they do! THey are just sitting at home getting poorer.

    I think that the situation is that there are enough jobs out there for the agents to be actively trying to place people, but there are enough out of work people that the agents don't need any new people on their books and aren't looking.

    This changes by city. Look at Canberra, Sydney and Melbourne. Don't expect to make enough money to pay for much more than your living expenses in Melbourne, and expect to actually lose money in Sydney. This is of course based on you wanting your own place to live near the CBD. If you are willing to share in an ugly suburb, you could do ok.

    UAT is a small market here. Difficult to get a role without business experience in that area. Also, it is paid less than most other testing roles.

    WinRunner is a good cv item. You could probably find a role, but it would be difficult to do without actually coming here and meeting face to face. Melbourne agents are not so keen to place unknown faces these days.

    hope this helps,
    Martin
