    Hi Kelli-Sian!

    I am looking forward to moving by myself!

    Will you be looking for a job or taking a pub-type one like the travel agencies can provide?

  • 19 Nov 2010 Kelli-Sian said

    Kelli-Sian

    Hopefully will be signing up with some agencies and find a job that way..

    Thought about doing the live-in pun jobs though! Is that your planning to do?

    Yeah that is exatly what I am going to do – register with recruitment agencies. When I am there at the end of the year on holiday I will get some letters from the agencies to say I have registered as I need them for my visa application. I’m looking to get a job in the IT sector which shouldn’t be too hard Smiler<!--graemlin::)-->

    Hi guys,
    Wow so many people with the same plans! I’m moving over in May/June after graduation and a month travelling around Asia. Then I’m probably going to get a job at one of my cousin’s bars in London or maybe my bosses ski shop in Scotland. It seems like such a big unknown though. And choosing which contiki is impossible though I’m tempted to do a gapforce trip to go diving in Egypt first.
    I’m from AKL btw and my name’s Sian Smiler<!--graemlin::)-->

    Hey Sian!

    Thats awesome! I know its so hard picking a tour… I finally decided to do the 37 day European Adventurer then i’ll be coming back to London to live… seems very scary but also exciting. thats awesome that you have family there to help you out!

    Youth Mobility seems to be the go for us.

    Hey guys,
    I moving to the UK too! Into the great unknown all on my lonesome. I’m going in August and doing the European Contrasts tour starting Aug 13th then I’ll start looking to find a job afterwards through recruitment agencies. I’ve got a dutch passport so that’ll help simplify the whole job search issue… hopefully Smiler<!--graemlin::)-->
    I’m Debbie and I’m from Hamilton.

    Im getting the Ancestral too.

    One of my biggest concerns after securing a job is a place to live… wouldn’t know where to start!
