After finding out that WA has filled it's sponsorship quota (both for my occupation and off-list), the day after receiving my IELTS results, we've been forced to look elsewhere. NSW is the only state still sponsoring my application, so it looks like we'll be heading to Sydney, not Perth. Looking on the bright side, there are loads of IT jobs in Sydney, so it should be easy enough to find a job. Having not been to Sydney before, some basic information would be good - which areas are handy for getting to the CBD (where I expect the jobs will be) - North, South, West? Out in the suburbs is fine for us, we don't need to be living in the city. No kids yet, so schools aren't a worry.
