Help - emigration going really, really badly.
After years of trying to get into Australia my partner and I finally got our visas and emigrated to Perth WA in January. Everything was bad from the first day. Six months down the line I still have no job. No one wants me here. I’m 46 and now qualified for nothing. What do I do? Someone please help me.
I used to teach basic I.T. and do a bit of group work and counselling on a project working with people with alcohol and narcotics addictions, but there’s nothing like that here and what there is won’t touch me because I don’t have Australian qualifications. I can’t afford to re-train and anyway even if I could it would take me too long.
I can’t even get a labouring job because you need safety certificates and such like, and I have no trade. I have two Masters degrees, but no one wants me. I feel like my life has gone to waste. I can’t go back to Scotland as I’d be in the same situation there, I’d be jobless and homeless.
I think I’m a fairly decent guy, I’m not a bad person, but what hope is there? If anyone wants my CV I’m happy to let you have it. I’m in the horrible Northern suburbs of Perth, but I could travel.
Please help me.
