Hi everyone, just though i would post this to let you know about my struggles!.
September - Left my job (IT Manager) in UK with a small payout
October - looked into being able to come to Oz, advised by Aus embassy to get an eVisitor visa (subclass business) which allows me to look for work in Oz for up to a year but only 3 months at a time.
December - Arrived in Oz and had a month of relaxing/sight seeing
January - Started looking for work in NSW Sydney, had a couple of interviews - nothing came of them
February - Applied for 10 - 15 jobs, had a couple of phone interviews and one interview - nothing came of them so far.
End of Feb went to Fiji for two weeks (mainly to reset my visa for another 3 months)
March - arrived back in Sydney and was interviewed by immigration who cancelled my visa as it was not designed for extensive stays looking for work! (gutted) He did inform me that i could stay a further 3 months but my visa would not be extended beyond that.
So here i am desperately looking for work with only 11 weeks left!
Is there anyone on here that came out to Oz looking for sponsorship? It seems impossible to me so far, most companies are put off even interviewing me because I require sponsorship!.
Anyway i have taken up enough of your time, would love to hear from anyone with some positive experience!.
