Trying to figure out what you are suggesting. You are saying Skilled migrant visa holders should not travel to Australia without securing a job first. You are saying they should compete in the OZ job market (which you say is dead) while they are miles away? In fact, you are saying DIAC, and OZ Gvt by extension is out of their mind to offer skilled visas to persons who do not have job offers because those people will not secure jobs unless they try from offshore.

I thought one stands a better chance of securing a job while onshore. And I still believe DIAC have valid reasons why they issue visas including PR to people who are offshore and have not secured any job in Oz. DIAC believes in your skills, its about time you did!

Now go ahead and like this post.

What all the original poster is suggestion I guess that once you get ur PR, it is better to come to OZ on temporary basis looking for job and even better if you manage one from home... DO NOT leave ur current job at home...

But I guess after few tries one eventually have to come permanently even if he doesn't find a job after few visits !!!

Do not go back brother.

Others who are planning to come can do with some dose of reality.

I am not saying do not come. But come prepared. There is a lot of difference between now and the situation 2.5 years back. So while your friends got jobs easily 2.5 years ago, you might also get it, but with a slight delay maybe?

I hope that market will pick up by next year. All major budgeting decisions by companies I think will be on back burner thanks to the coming elections in September. And unfortunately after September the Holiday season will set in.

Someone please prove me wrong !!!

I inquired to one recruiter regarding job search from offshore



"At present there is a strong local supply of good quality applicants in your industry, meaning that our clients are not tending to offer employment to candidates currently offshore.

Without a relevant visa and a definite arrival date, it is therefore difficult for us to assist you at this time, for information regarding ways to obtain a working or residency visa for Australia, please visit Department of Immigration & Citizenship or contact your nearest Australian High Commission or an immigration consulting firm in your home country. Please note that Michael Page International is not able to assist you in any way with immigration advice, sponsorship or visa applications.

As soon as you do have a relevant visa and a confirmed arrival date, I will be happy to pre-arrange an interview for you with one of our consultants. "

What I believe is this: if you have the required skill and character, you will find a job anywhere in the world. No sound employer will reject a good candidate even if the market is slow. Especially in IT.

Also, I believe if you are already successful in your country in sense that if you quit your job today you can land another one in a very short period and you get a lot of offers regularly, then your chances of being successful at landing a job in Aussie is much higher. That's why some highly skilled people get job offers in Aussie while they're offshore and get sponsored by Employers.

Many people unfortunately are not employable enough in their own home country and they think by changing the environment they can be successful in another land which will never happen. Build your skills and make yourself ready to compete in a tough global market and I believe you won't find any problem finding a job anywhere in the world.

And before someone mentions experience, let me say experience is not the only thing that qualifies a highly skilled person. I believe highly skilled people are those who can show their ability to innovate and contribute creative solutions and ideas.

That's why it is highly recommended, if you are in IT, that you contribute in open source projects and communities such as "stackexchange". When I receive a CV from a person and includes his user account in StackExchange or a list of open source projects he works on, I just respect his skills even more. Because anyone can learn C# or SQL and memorize all the commands but few can contribute back and show creativity in coming up with novel solutions to problems.

It's really not as bad as San911 says. It's not as easy as many people seem to expect either.
Most people won't find a job within the first month, unless they are prepared extremely well.
It took me some time to understand how to apply, where to apply, and so on. Everything here was a little bit different than how I was used to from home. Nothing, that was hard to learn, but a lot of small things that make a difference.
Within the first weeks, it was quite frustrating sometimes, having applied for many jobs that seemed perfect to me, but usually didn't even get a response. Now I know what I did wrong. I found a job after around 10 weeks and I am confident that it'll be much easier next time.

At least in Software development, the market seems quite alright. Although there aren't a lot of very interesting jobs around, at least there are enough jobs and they are pretty well paid.

There's a nice blog article on the immi.gov.au website: Good, better, best? | Migration Blog
It says, 95% of skilled immigrants found a job within 6 months, 98% within 12 months.
