everywhere's tough, but is there any suggestion, like Australia? Australia is really tough, I've heard people said they only got into a job for about 7 months, 4

months if you're lucky and also they have limited job scope. Will I have more benefits if I learn a few more foreign languages?

Sometimes I cannot understand ppl's obssession with Australia. rclxub.gif
The country is so far from others, so it's difficult when you want to travel/visit another country. Maybe someone can tell me more good things about Australia? hmm.gif

6 months is a standard job-hunting time frame. My friend spent 9 months doing nothing, just job-hunting and finally got a graduate level job with a big company in the UK. You need to sacrifice if you want to win! No pain no gain!

Since you're local uni student, maybe you can consider doing a student exchange to a foreign country. But make sure you have the right aim in mind, GET A JOB!! and not honeymoon! tongue.gif I often tell my friends that it's better to study in Germany than in private uni in Malaysia. If you want to learn a foreign language, learn German! Germany is still very welcoming compared to other countries. And with German, you can move to Switzerland or Austria next time. All German speaking countries have very high standard of living.

The best country is the one you can do business / make money easily... overseas is okay if you can get "paper married" with local ppl there, but if you start from bottom don't waste ur energy too much... nowadays economy is not stable ... arabs suffers cuz oil prices goes down, european suffers cuz prices too high... and etc...

Yeah, that is also one reason why I would hear my cousins talk about their experience in working, mostly working overseas, I would always sit down and listen.

Australia has been a place I have always wanted to migrate to ever since I'm small, when I grew up, the dreams just get stronger, but I have not yet make

appropriate approaches to achieve it, right now I'm just a student, with nothing. The reason why is because I think they offer better lifestyle there, less crime

and stuffs, but climate change is also a bad thing too right there and also some of them might hate us, and treat us as immigrants. I don't really know, I'm

actually finding stories of the people who live in Australia, and say that they want to move back to Malaysia, due to reasons, etc etc, and some of them wanna

move to Australia, due to reasons,etc etc. Make comparison, and decide, that's all what I can do now, and I have 2 years left to graduate, no one knows what

2 years later how the economy will change in Australia, maybe applying to work there will become harder. Who knows? Wishful thinking. ;3

The first thing you need to change if you want to migrate to another country is your mindset. The mistake you are making now is by saying "I am just a student" and can therefore do nothing. If going to Australia is your dream, you must come up with a plan to get there.

Migrating is not easy, the host country generally only wants to get the best of the best. You cannot hope to put in an "average" amount of effort and hope that it will give you results. You need to put in exceptional effort.

Since your vision is "Migrate to Australia", start by identifying a few things that you can do right now to improve your chances. For example,

1. Can you speak, read, and write English fluently? At least fluent enough to get an 8 on the IELTS for each component of the exam? If you cannot, it's time to put together a plan to practise and improve your English so that you can achieve that kind of score. The reason for this is because the Australian skilled migrant system awards points to people based on their IELTS score.

2. Have you applied for, or completed, any internships with companies in the field you are studying? I take it you will want to go for a graduate job when you complete your studies. Employers will generally look favourably to graduates who have completed internships particularly in "well known" firms.

3. Are there any professional courses that you can do on the side while you are studying? By professional courses, I mean things like one (or more) levels of the CFA if you're studying finance, or some professional certifications, e.g. MCSE, Certified Java Programmer if you are studying IT/CS. If you are able to complete something like that, it would show to a potential employer that you are serious about the field you are in and willing to put in exceptional effort.

You should be waking up every morning thinking to yourself, "What can I do today to get closer to my dream?" By taking these baby steps towards your dream every day, I think you will have a much better chance of getting there in 2 years time.

1. I actually do practice everyday. By reading and try to write something.

2. No, it will be 2 years now. Right now I am still uncertain of what I am going to be in the next 2 years. But I am already planning.

3. I have seen stuffs like this. I will take a look.

Thank you for your time for providing me useful and valuable opinions, Gursnagh.

OK, if you still have two years to go, you are still early in your path.

But you should try to look for an internship during your holidays in your second year at least. The internship helps you understand better what the working world is like. If it is a good internship, you might even be given a project that you can work on that helps the company. That will teach you a few other important things that you will need in your working life, e.g. the importance of deadlines, reporting what you do, and delivering results that meet expectations. If they don't give you a project, suggest one to them.

I studied overseas and I can tell you that almost 100% of the students at my university went looking for internships in their second year and then again in their third (final) year. Often, they would get a job offer from their third year internship which they would go to when they graduated. The second year internship was sometimes in something they ended up working in; for example, they would go to work in finance in their 2nd year and a second finance internship in their 3rd year and end up working in finance. But, sometimes, you would get people who do something totally different in their 2nd year internship and that was OK too.

I don't think this is so common in Malaysia but, again, the idea here is not to do "common" things but to do things that make you stand out in a positive way.

you should just focus in your studies... if you have good grades you have better chances of going overseas to work.... similarly if you have good experience, people will want to hire you.... this is what its called brain drain....

but if you dont have either both, then perhaps you can hope that your parents can help you invest into the country that you like and that will save you all the trouble...

in the meantime, try to read a bit on business new daily to know what is going on around the world.. in a nutshell, when economy is down, no one will wanna hire you even you are good in anything...

get to know yourself, what are your interest, what are your habits and then you go from there... Not go to another country because everyone says its good there..

If you are outstanding in your field, many countries will welcome you with open arms.

There are many grants and scholarships available, you just need to look.

Working and living overseas is an invaluable experience. However, it is not for everyone.

Good luck.

I think United States are much easier to get a job compared to Australia and England. Fluent in Chinese and English put you in a better position in job search in those developed countries as most major companies are trying to do business with the chinese

there's no 'best' country. If there were, everyone would be migrating there already.

What's best for you may not be best for others.

for example, angmo are exalted in asia and they get expat pay here. So they may think Malaysia and Singapore as the best, especially SG with low taxes.

if you're lgbt, you may think countries that legalise the marriage as ideal as they are more open-minded.

if you're chinese, you may like taiwan as you'd be treated the same like a local. It could feel like a family.
