Эта история-тема размещается тут прежде всего в поучительных целях. Не все читать позитивные истории тех, у кого все получилось. Не у всех выходит. И на это есть причины. Об этом ниже. Про иммигранта в Австралию Оленевода, известную личность с соседнего форума, которому за 40 (никакой дискриминации по возрасту, просто для полноты картины), весь его айтишный опыт давно устарел, английский с жутким акцентом, но винит во всем австралийцев, якобы не зовущих его на собеседования из-за расизма. Наткнулся тут на интересное созданное им обсуждение на австралийском англоязычном форуме Пожалуйста, войдите, чтобы видеть содержимое Полезно будет тем, кто практикует английский и кому скучно Вообще австралийцы - замечательные, доверчивые люди, раз ему поверили Его пост: I am Russian immigrant in Australia from January 2016. I have university degree, Microsoft certification and 12 years experience in SQL Server and SQL Development. In Russia I was successful IT professional and immigrated in Australia due to political reason. In Australia I am unemployed since my arrival in Australia. Why? Ordinary racism. In my first year in Australia I applied more than 1000 resumes for advertised positions on Australian employment websites. Every time I am "oh, Russia, do not worry you are not suitable bla-bla-bla". No one wishes to discuss my skills and experience, but everyone make judgment about my suitability based on my ethnicity. No one tries to invite me for interview, but everyone certainly knows that I am not suitable. Everyone tries to argue that Russian IT professionals are high valued in Australia, however, my experience shows that this is not true. In July 2017 I made experiment, full description is here Пожалуйста, войдите, чтобы видеть содержимое. I created fake profile and pretended German immigrant. As German immigrant I met opposite attitude towards my new fake ethnicity. Shortly, as Russian immigrant I have been invited for technical interview only 2 times since my arrival in Australia. The first time was in May 2016 I talked to Perth via Skype when I resided in Sydney. The second time was in June 2017 I talked to Sydney via Skype when I resided in Brisbane. When I lived in Sydney no one employer or agent in Sydney or NSW did not wish to talk to me. Now I live in Brisbane and no one employer or agent wants to talk to me here. However, as fake German immigrant I have been invited for technical interview 5 times in only July 2017. Please do not tell me fairy tales about my skills and equal opportunities. No one has tried to contact to me to discuss my experience. Everyone who rejected my Russian resume were happy to represent my fake German resume and advised that my German resume is interesting, although the German resume is a copy of Russian one. Experiment showed that skills and experience are worthless if candidate's ethnic origin is not suitable for particular occupation. Racial segregation exists in Australia. There are allowed and prohibited nationalities for every occupation in Australia. Russian software developer are in demand in Australia, however, in any other cases employers do not wish Russians. Australia is retrograde racist country which is proud of racism. When I arrived in Australia I wanted to assimilate, but now I do not. I am disappointed with Australia. I regret that I have made wrong choice between Australia and Canada. I had invitation from Canada, but chose Australia. Unfortunately, I do not have money to start new immigration process. From January 2018 Centrelink will pay me allowance, and Australian taxpayers will give me money.
