Hi All,

I am planning to migrate to Sydney this coming June as a PR status.
But I am still not sure about job or career prospects in Sydney.

Thank you in advance for sharing any feedback or experience related to accounting and finance job markets as a PR resident from overseas.

Brief info about myself:
- Asian background, English not bad but not excellent
- PR visa status under skilled migration(176?) (already years passed)
- Licensed US Certified Public accountant and currently I am under process of admission to CA membership (I highly expect within 2-4 weeks I will get admitted)
- CFA Charter Holder since 2007
- Worked for Big 4 (P and D) overseas(in Asian countries) over 6 years.
- Other than accounting firm experience, I have worked for another 6 years, which means my age is close to 40..(my biggest weakness)
- Graduated from top 20 US mba business school

Do I have a possibility of getting hired in Sydney? and if it's possible, how am I treated from Australian job market? I was told many times that local experience matters most, which I do not have at all.

Thank you in advance for sharing any feedback and your comments
