  1. Let's say that after getting PR on skilled independent visa, you come to Australia. But you can't find your dream job and you only find work that you are not interested in or salary is poor. What can you do in that case? Can you go back to your home country and come back to Australia at a later date?
  2. I think one popular job to get PR is a software engineer. Which other white collar jobs can also allow application for PR? I am asking because I am currently looking for a job as a software engineer but it is proving to be difficult. On the other hand, I am getting numerous offers for office jobs like receptionist, customer service, office assistant, recruiter and others. I should mention I have a bachelor's degree in Software Engineering but due to my location and market situation, I am not getting the job easily.
  3. Most IT jobs are in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane. You can use the seek.com.au website to get an idea. You might have to do odd jobs until you get PR, then relocate. You can also try to convince Home Affairs to let you relocate to another state since you can't find decent jobs in SA.
  4. This is a bit technical. Some states like NSW, VIC, QLD nominate software engineers, developer programmers, analyst programmers. Can software developers like Java, C#, SQL developers be nominated? Are software developers seen as closely related to software engineers? I read the ANZSCO job descriptions but I couldn't figure it out.
  5. Most states have a requirement that you have to live and work there for two years. What if you leave and work in another state? Will they track you down and cancel your permanent residency?
  6. Again, Network Engineering is a completely different line of work. Most Computer Science or IT degrees don't even focus on network engineering. It's all about programming in Java, C#, etc. Feels like an inefficient system. Do something that's completely unrelated to what you know when you could be contributing with your skills.
  7. IT technician is a different thing. The IT or ICT that migrants come to Australia for is programming/software engineering which you mainly find in big companies located in cities.
  8. Suppose you're in the ICT line of work. Staying in the countryside for several years waiting tables is a pointless life for someone who is skilled as a software engineer.
  9. I am in the ICT/Software Engineer line of work. I checked the South Australian migration site and they are allowing only 489 visas to overseas applicants and 75 is the minimum required points. Which Australian states are a bit more relaxed with their requirements?
  10. I'm in the ICT domain. There are a lot of remote work opportunities in this field. Can such work experience be used in the skills assessment for points or does it only count if you physically work at the company's office?
  11. I don't know the exact numbers but let's assume there are 10,000 applicants in a year for the 190 visa. There is room for only 2,000 applicants so they are given the 190 visa. Now, 8,000 applicants remain but the following year, there are another 10,000 new applicants. Now, there is a backlog of 18,000 applicants. The number should only be increasing as years go by because there is a large supply but not enough demand. How is this issue handled by Home Affairs? Is there a lottery system? In that case, does the chance of winning get slimmer with every passing year?

    Does any employer want to sponsor me?

    I'll give it a shot. But it's gonna be almost impossible since I don't have any work experience.
  13. I have recently completed my "Bachelor of Information Technology" from a good university but it's located outside of Australia. Now, I have two options. 1. Study a Master's by research degree in Australia to get some points. Then, get work experience in Australia and then apply for permanent residency. 2. Work outside Australia for two years to get the required experience and then apply for permanent residency. Personally, I feel like option 2 is better since I won't have to get in debt to pay for my Master's. But maybe option 1 has a better chance for getting PR, I'm not sure.

    What exactly should I do in LinkedIn? Is there a way to find employers who are sponsoring?
