Hi I have recently had a couple of SKYPE interviews for sales positions in Perth this week do most people find from having an interview on SKYPE it leads to a permanent job please? The one I had yesterday has emailed across to me a Personal Style Analysis for me to complete this morning (fingers and toes crossed) and here is hoping. Kind regards Debbie

Hi I had a skype interview on 26/6 and was offered the job 20 mins later! I have sent my contract back to Oz and I'm heading out on the 8th august and due to start on the 15th... Very exciting and very quick - they wanted me there in 2 wks but I have to give 3 mths so I managed to do 6wks! If you have what they want and are planning on going out ASAP then I'm sure it will work out for you! Good luck :-)

Excellent in gaining a position after 20 mins. What line of work are you in please? The Company have sent me a Personality Test to complete and on receipt of that I will hear if I have got it (fingers crossed). Best wishes Debbie

Hi Debbie I'm in higher education and have been following the goings on in Aussie HE for 2yrs so was really pleased that Julia Gillard was education minister before being PM as it meant I could continue doing what I do in the UK... I'm sure you'll be fine. My friends tell me once you are there, register with agencies and you'll have a job by the end of the day! One of my friends recently attended an interview and was told she was over qualified... Same thing, 20 mins later the company called her and offered her a position - not doing the basic job she had attended the interview for but a more senior post... Plently of jobs fur those with skills, experience and knowledge. How soon are you planning on going over? I was straight up in my application... Basically said if you offer, I'll come over sooner than planned.... And that's what we are doing... Best of luck Debbie - keep plugging at it and applying, better to have many irons & skype interviews lined up than none :-) BTW how great is the at home skype interview! I've never been so chilled for a job I really wanted!!! Lou

We fly on the 8th August and I will be celebrating my big four O on the 30th on the beach even if it is pouring down with rain and blowing a sandstorm! Exciting times for us both - Enjoy the time you have here make the most of good byes and remind them SKYPE is the way forward :-) xx
