Hi all,

I've been living in Australia for 4 years (I got my degree from there) and I'm now currently working in Singapore and also pursuing for my masters in one of the local university here. I plan to go back to Australia after I get my masters. Both countries are great and I roughly know the work culture, salary, living cost, etc in each country.

For you information, I have a very strong passion in technology. In Singapore, most of the big MNCs that I know of only focus on providing support and service or sales and I'm more interested in the field of research and development.

To pursue my interest and for a better quality of life, is it worth for me to go back to Australia? Since I have never worked in Australia before, do you think my working experience in Singapore will be worthwhile there?

Thanks in advance.

I believe your Singapore' exposure will be worthwhile in Australia. Plus, you stayed in Australia for 4 years prior pursuing Master degree in Singapore.
