    Default Coming to Canberra from India

    I'm a B.Tech pursuing MBA (HR) thorugh a distance education program in India. Have hands on experience in strategic HR Manangement of about 3 years. I will be relocating permanently to Canberra in Jan 2009.

    My take is that without any Australian-based study you will struggle to find even an entry level position in the HR field in Australia. The legislative and social context of HR in Australia is vastly different to India, so I'd suggest your first priority upon arrival is to undertake some local study to acquire the necessary foundation of Australian HR.

    Thanks a lot Mark for your advice. I shall definitley consider a TAFE course before starting my HR career in Australia.

    In all honesty, it will be very difficult to find a job here. I know someone who has had a wealth of HR Generalist and Learning & Development experience not to mention an MBA in HR Management from a US University who cannot get a break in Australia.

    This friend of mine is more qualified than myself in HR and is more qualified than alot of people interviewing him and still can't break in. Considering that HR in the US is far more advanced than what is being practised in Australia, its quite remarkable.

    I wish you the best of luck.
