Nab That Job in Australia!



Success Story - Pradeep Kunnath

Posted on June 17, 2010 at 6:19 PM

Carry sufficient cash for at least six months, have your CV rewritten by a professional Australian Emigration Job Search Strategist, develop contacts before your arrival, be patient and, most of all, never never give up.

These tips come from Pradeep Kunnath, an Indian national who migrated to Australia last November, who finally found a job after eight months of intense searching.

The position Pradeep secured in Australia was not just any job, however, it was the job he had been dreaming about, the job he gained experience in in  his own country.  Thanks to Pradeep's strength, his talent, and thanks to the help of Nadine Myers, Founder and Director of Nab That Job in Australia!, and Australian Emigration Job Search Strategist, he finally landed a great role in Australia.

Pradeep was seeking a role  in Human Resources.  He had tried to applying for jobs before arriving in Australia, however he eventually discovered that this was a bad idea: “People want to see you in person”, says Pradeep, “above all if you are looking for a position as Human Resources Officer.  And in Australia they don’t care about previous experiences in your country: they really appreciate your local experience”.

So there was a problem, because Pradeep did not have the often required local experience in Australia.

That’s why the help of the consultants at Nab That Job in Australia, who rewrote Pradeep’s resume in an a professional, Australian style, was one of the keys of his success: “I learned that the CV should be designed on local conditions, and that the jobs that really suit my profile were never advertised.  The interaction with Nadine and Nab That Job in Australia was one of the best things I found about migrating in Australia”.

Pradeep signed his first employment contract just one month after his arrival in Australia, and finally landed his current role in Human Resources with a top, multi-national firm, after eight long months of searching.

Using job search websites may help you in your Australian job search, however, according to Pradeep’s experience, it’s more important to develop contacts in person and apply for jobs with those organizations who are truly global.

To the question regarding the things that really helped Pradeep to find a job in Australia, he answered: “First of all, faith in myself.  I never gave up.  Second, a resume written by Nab That Job in Australia. Third, constant support from Nab That Job in Australia and discussions with the contacts she gave to me. And last, the fact that I did interviews with people who really matter, rather than a job consultant who has no idea about what I was looking for”.

But of course Pradeep faced a lot of challenges and disappointments in his job search in Australia, such as the low knowledge Australian people have about Indian culture and country.  Pradeep quite often did not understand the reasons for his rejections by the Australian job consultants, and was frustrated by not being given an audience to explain his real work experience.

Pradeep is now satisfied with his new role, and is happy with his career prospects in Australia.  However, if he looks back there are few things he would have done differently: for example, using an Australian job search professional to rewrite his CV earlier, and avoiding applying for every position which matched his experience on job search websites.

For Pradeep, the best thing about immigrating to Australia was, in few words, the people he met along the way: “I really love the camaraderie of people and the fact that I really feel at home”.

When we asked Pradeep to give some suggestions to people who want to work and live in Australia, he was very straight forward and stated simply: “This is not a free lunch.  I recommend that you plan your move in advance: carry some cash with you because it can take six months before finding the right job.  But, most of all, if you have decided to move to any country, the decision is truly yours and do not regret it”.

In the end, the real successful key of Pradeep was finding the right people who really helped him. People like the consultants at Nab That Job in Australia, with their useful website,, who are helping people from all over the world to find employment and fulfil their dream lifestyle in Australia.

A country which offers a lot of opportunities if you believe in yourself and never, never, give up.

Hi Tigran - nice to hear from you again. I am excited for you that you are coming to Australia finally. What will you be studying? If you continue to work on your English and obtain good OET scores, we may be able to assist you to find a position.

According to the Australian Dental council (

"All overseas trained dentists (regardless of country of training) are required to pass the Occupational English Test (OET) for healthcare professionals, prior to acceptance into the Australian Dental Council examinations. Exemptions are not granted.

The Occupational English Test is designed to assess a candidate?s understanding and use of English in the professional workplace. It tests both written and spoken English in four categories: reading, writing, listening and speaking.

* All four categories must be passed at an ?A? or ?B? level to achieve an overall acceptable pass in the test.
* All four categories must be passed in a single sitting.

The result of the test helps determine whether a candidate?s general level of English is sufficiently high to enable them to practise dentistry in Australia. Difficulties with this test should alert the candidate to the possibility of difficulties with the later stages of the ADC examinations.


1. No other English tests are accepted by the ADC.
2. A pass in the OET is valid for two years only.
3. Candidates are required to hold a valid OET pass at the closing date for applications for each exam stage, ie at Preliminary and at Final Exam.

The OET is administered by the OET Centre. For information and to register online visit"

Let´s stay in touch an once you have obtained the necessary OET scores, we can assist you in your job search.

Kind regards,

One of the more pressing problems faced by NFL super fans day during and outing is definitely the proper way to exhibit how large an admirer they could be associated with a certain team or player. Many fans can find hats, shirts, signed memorabilia, and a lot of other different items. Among the most common souvenirs however can be described as jersey where fan is commonly playing assistance from three possibilities: authentic, highest regarded, or duplicate. Throughout my estimation, in order to to factor it a stride and transition which includes a super buff rather than a realistic jersey featuring your team and also player stands out as the most convenient way going. These jerseys represent this particular jersey this professional NFL players experience as well as an excellent item in your fan or sometimes memorabilia loan provider. The way a lot of closer could you get than usual smokes?
One in the most important obstacles that others worry in regards to when taking into consideration authentic jersey would be your price. Typically authentic jerseys are frequently less affordable rather than their replica/premier counterparts, but for example the old adage says you can receive what we buy. Like other things, if you want the ideal than you are going to normally must save money providing it to happen.
One key feature evident inside an realistic jersey is either the customized team significant number embroidering alongside sewn brand plates. Several numbers perhaps even player labels are thoroughly constructed and within their correct location from the jersey.wholesale authentic jerseys Having replica jerseys, the content and artists are show printed implementing machine technology aided by the focus remaining more at producing several issues that they may rather than the finest quality while using the consumer.
