    Please feel free to add your name to the list. Don't be shy. The last few years meet ups have been great and lots of friends and work contacts have been made through the event.

    Looking forward to it.


  4. You are right Bristle. We didn't go with them and got approved for another property which asked only 2 weeks rent upfront and 1 month as a bond. So planning to go with them... thanks a lot for your response!

    Good luck with everything. It was good to meet you on Saturday.


  5. Hi we found a place in nollamara and planning to pay 6 months rent in advance. Is it normal to pay money before signing the lease? Coz we haven't seen what's in the lease. Appreciate your help!

    I would expect to pay one months rent in advance and the same again as the bond. Unless there are lots of people after the property you are paying a lot of money up front when it could be used for better things. If you experience any problems you may have trouble getting any money back.


  6. hi i was just wondering after reading that a few people are flying to perth for a couple of weeks then flying back to uk just to validate their visa but we are flying to perth a month before hubbys first entry date and staying there so you dont have to validate the visa do you before actually emigrating ? thanks :confused:

    No, we moved without validating first. Some people validate first so they can take time for the big move but we decided to save the money that would have been used to make the full move.


  7. It's the same in other professions. I'm in sales and applied for a job last week selling products I'd previously sold in the UK. Sent my CV and cover letter and received a call from the national sales manager saying that he was looking to interview this week and could I complete a questionnaire that would be used at interview time. I sent this off and the heard nothing back. I called him on Monday and he said he was a bit busy and would call back, he didn't. I called again Tuesday and asked if I was still going to be interviewed. He sounded flustered and said he would talk to HR and call me back, he didn't. I called again Wednesday and he said he was in the middle of building a showroom display and could I call back after 4pm. I did at different times and, due to going straight to voicemail, left messages asking him to all back so I could get feedback on my application. He didn't.

    I was looking for work for 9 months prior to present job and rarely received a response to applications or to requests for feedback. It's not easy and you just have to keep plugging away. I am not enjoying my current position due to a lack support from my sales manager but will do the best I can as it pays the bills until something improves. I wish you good luck in your search.
