I am thinking of trying my luck there. I have support experience mainly in Microsoft Client and Server OS stack with PC and server hardware and application support experience. I have 5+ years of experience in NZ.
Since my last job ended I didn't have any success in getting another job. I had many interviews but I found out that for all of those jobs employers give priority to your ability to kiss people's rear ends rather than your technical know-how. Most of my interviews for purely technical jobs were focused on pleasing end users at all costs. An interview with a finance company gave me an impression that all their users are mentally deranged and I have to be a punching bag for them. In all those interviews, I barely got a chance to talk about my technical skills which I am most confident about.
I wonder how different the situation would be for IT support jobs in Australia? I know there is a tough competition there and salaries are a little higher.
Can someone with a knowledge of both job markets share their thoughts of my chances in OZ job market if I am struggling here?
