Welcome to season two of Migrant mama in Australia podcast. It has been awhile since I last recorded an episode and a lot of things has happened since we moved here in Australia. For the first episode of this podcast’s season two, I will share an update on how is our life here in Australia so far. Do I still like it here? Any regrets expectations versus reality moments? And how is life in Rockhampton in particular, if you want a glimpse of a migrant’s first year here, down under, then please listen to this episode.
I shared the story of how my husband got his job after several rejections from Australian companies because of his lack of local experience. The way he landed the job was totally unexpected and we were in shock after receiving the news. This is the final episode of the year and it serves as a gratitude episode and inspirational episode to lift your spirits if you are job hunting right now or about to embark on this journey!
