  15. Hi,

    This is Sujay from India. I have graduated in Mechanical engineering & have 6 years experience in Technical proposals, Sales & Mktg of steam turbine repairs and services. This is not a core engineering; its more of a techno-commercial job.

    I have just started the formalities with an agency to procure GSM visa to Australia & i am confident of getting one. But meanwhile, i would like to know if there are enough opportunities for my profile in Aus. It would be confidence boosting if i were to know that technical sales & mktg does have a good scope.

    Please revert back with your suggestions/comments.
