Default help! Need to find a work sponsorship visa

I moved to Sydney to pursue a relationship. As a 32 year old American, I can not work in Aus until I have a company willing to sponsor my work visa. I would appreciate any and all leads.

Thanks! Stephanie

Hi Stephanie,

My partner and I are in the same situation and are running low on funds. If this or any other route has been successful for you, please could you contact us with advice.

Many thanks, Aderyn.

hi Aderyn what do you do if you don't have a trade on the modl list that lets you get a visa and you want to stay then it is sponsorship or maybe doing a college course or if you are under 30 get the the year visa then you can stay for an extra year if you do fruit picking for 3 months.

to find a sponsor either ring company's and sell your self to them or call in and see if they want to sponsor or contact the recruitment agency i mentioned in the other post there are a few others if you like ill post the links

good luck with it all
Niamh

Hi Niamh,
If you've got a list of agencies that don't have a pre-requisite of residency I'd appreciate your posting it.
Many thanks,
Jonathan

Hi Jonathan,

Welcome to the forum.

If you search through Liana Allan's posts she suggested a reverse job website that may be worth a look. Most employment agencies expect applicants to have a visa that allows them to work in Australia (but you may have discovered that already ).

Regards,
Karen

I wonder if this will remain a mystery ... original post was back in Oct 07. If you're still around hydra06, let us know how you got on.

Hey Stephanie - not sure how your search for job sponsorship in Australia is going, however there is a new website dedicated to helping people find sponsorship in Australia called, funnily enough - Sponsorship Australia. You are sure to find it useful.

There is another website [Link removed by moderator to a competing forum] that can assess how competitive you are and help you to meet the expectations of the Australian employer.

Since you are already in Australia - you are already at huge advantage - you have to really work your networks, and put apply a strong and focused job search strategy, making sure to tap into the hidden job market in Australia (where apparently around 70% of jobs are found, and not advertised).

All the best to you!
