    Hi Estelle,

    there used to be a jobsurfer wiki with some useful information, but since the reorganization of CS it's been lost. Archives.org still holds an old snapshot of it, however the information about IT jobs is mostly gone.

    I work in IT myself, and haven't been able yet to find a decent job over here in almoust 2 months. Even though i had an interview a couple days ago, i don't expect much. People say you have to be very persistent with the agencies, hand in your CV and call them at least once a week to stay on their radar. Please read the following thread in which we discussed that matter on the jobboard subgroup:
    https://www.couchsurfing.org/group_read.html?gid=12130&post=14121306

    One option: Have a look around seek.com.au, upload your good looking CV, register with all the agencies that you see offer jobs in a relevant field for you, apply for the jobs online (always with cover letter!!) and hope that you're getting picked for an interview.

    2nd option: print out your CV, write down the addresses of the agencies above (most of them are in the CBD anyways), dress up and hand it in in person. (not sure if you need to make an appointment before. i would just try without.)

    For tomorrow i'm planning to do exactly that (option 2), in case i get a negative feedback from the interview before.

    Good luck!

    Oh cool thanks everyone for your good tips !! That will be a very good help for me.
    Do you know someone that would be able to have a look at my resume ? I tried to update it at the Australian format (I am French) but I am not sure if it is good or not.

    Cheers !
