I am thinking of migrating to Australia under the skilled points system. I will need to use my occupation as a mechanic but want to change career when I get there. Is this allowed or do you have to work in the occupation that you got your visa for?

Good luck..

you can very well do what you want once you have a valid visa.

So does this mean that if my ACS application said that I was a software engineer and my visa is processed successfully and then I can look for work as a IT project manager when I am looking for work in Australia? Do the employers not look at the ACS result at all?

What kind of checks do they have to prevent fraud, I mean sticking to IT is one thing, but if I look for a job completely different than the one that I had talked about in my visa application, how does that work?

Cheers,
Maverick

There is nothing to say what you have to do once you get your PR visa. It's an assumption that you will do what you're used to and trained in.

Both myself and my husband tried something new when we got here (we're on PR visa) but have actually going back to what we were doing before with some changes. So my husband has started up a gardening business (he's good at it and he loves it) and I'm still doing some IT although it's websites and not programming for big companies any more (unless they make it worth my while:)).

As Riversandlakes says the world is your oyster once you get here on PR.

Regards,
Karen

Just to add here, after you have your PR you are free do anything (Inside LEGAL domain..)

There is no rule that binds you to one employer or one job.. you can change them as you wish..
