Seeking a change of lifestyle, Jeff sold his company and obtained a position at a major electrical engineering firm with operations in United States, Australia and throughout the world.
Then, in 2001, with over 30 years experience in the electrical engineering and sustainable energy industries, along with a rolodex of high-level contacts and experience in recruiting hundreds of employees in numerous roles over the years, Jeff started GPSA (Global Placement Services Australia).
Jeff’’s core mission with GPSA is to use his knowledge, experience and contacts to help skilled Americans and Europeans get secure, high-paying jobs in the New Land of Opportunity, Australia.
Like many Americans, Jeff had long recognized Australia being a “slice of heaven” with beautiful beaches, a great climate and lots of kangaroos and koalas!
However, while Australia is well-known for its flora and fauna he, like many others was surprised to learn just how robust the economy is, based largely on the “Resource Boom” in raw minerals to China, and the huge “Infrastucture Boom” taking place to “feed” these primary industries.
While researching the overall economic situation in Australia Jeff learned about Australia’s 2nd ranking in the “World’s Most Livable Country Index” (behind Switzerland). This, along with the strength of the Aussie Dollar (achieving parity with the US dollar in 2009) convinced him to take a hard look at Australia as a serious relocation contender – in light of the worsening economic situation in the U.S.A.
GPSA has a range of programs to assist job seekers interested in relocating to Australia.
