    well done. It isn't always easy to get the first foot in the door but once you do, make all the contacts you can and build your rep as a quality worker/tradesman and you'll get the opportunities for the better paying jobs(not that your first few jobs won't be good, but the REALLY good ones are out there and worth chasing)

    There is no psychiatrist in the world like a puppy licking your face.

    Good work getting a job on the mines, my hubby works one week on one week off, nowhere near the $$$ of 4/1 but i get to see him every week, he's drive in drive out, so closer to Perth.

    There are a whole heap of training courses and tickets to get, so collect away, as mymatejack says it's all about getting your foot in the door and making contacts.

    Just keep focussed and don't become a slave to booze or gambling ... keep occupied on this forum Welcome to Western Australia ...

    Hi findeb, thanks, I was offered a 3:1 when i got onsite, but i'm here for the money so i stuck with 4:1, it's not so much the booze and gambling that I'm worried about, I'm here to save for a house so the hardest thing will be not buying toys like a car or jetski befor eI got my deposit
