    Where's the best area to stay in Melbourne for holidays

    Hmmm - that's a good question but we'll need more information about what it is you're intending to do... and your budget. The last time I was in Melbourne I stayed at the Radisson on Flagstaff Gardens and it was great. Central, great service and reasonably priced. If you like asian food I still have dreams about Gingerboy... over 7 years ago

    Where to go for good sushi in the Hobart CBD?

    Agree with the above posters, however if you want really good Sushi, and following Guy's lead, try Kawasemi in Moonah. over 9 years ago

    What are the best nightclubs in Hobart?

    Hi Rob, It really depends on your tastes, even in Hobart there are a few different styles of nightclub. However the best night imo are Mondays(ok), Wed(fairly busy), Fri(ok) and Sat(very busy). My preference is for Saturday night. Either Cargo or the Telegraph in Salamanca to begin with a quiet drink and then moving on to Syrup or Halo later in the evening depending on the DJ. I'm sure you will get more of an opinion from others :) Cheers, Michael over 9 years ago

    Where is the best laksa in Hobart?

    For me it would be the "CHICKEN LAKSA!" from the Vietnamese Kitchen in Salamanca, or Vina in Sandy Bay. I can taste it now. almost 10 years ago

    Is it hard to find a job as software developer in London?

    What is your timeframe for going over? Certainly from my own experience in trying to find a position, it is quite a difficult time to be searching within the UK due to the impact of the global recession. That's not to say there aren't positions, you just have to search harder and be an exceptional candidate. Any application you complete will have to be targeted. Roles are typically looking for a 95% fit where as a couple of years ago, someone with a 75% fit would be accepted. Are you already with a global firm, is there any possibility you can be transferred? If not, some things to consider are: *Job Agencies (in down times a number of positions are filled by agents and don't make it to regular print advertisements) Have a look at: http://www.agencycentral.co.uk/agencysearch/IT/skills/skillsearch.htm *Visa Requirements You need a visa, as well as a work permit. (Do you already have the right to work in the UK, or can you get a visa? Youth mobility visa is your best bet if you're under 30. Note strict changes to the Tier 2 (work sponsored) and Tier 1 skilled migrant visa if taking that route.) http://www.ukba.homeoffice.gov.uk/workingintheuk/ My general advice would be to put the feelers out, with a view to securing a position mid to late 2010. If you go over right now without waiting for market confidence to rise and new projects to start flowing again you may find it is a lot harder (though not impossible) to find a well paid job. Others may be more confident, this is just my view. Goodluck with your endeavours. Michael over 10 years ago
