  1. Is there a specific place or website to find out what positions are available or do you just go on a website like SEEK,find jobs that you're interested in,apply,wait for a response etc? Thank you.
  2. I have already talked to migration agents and paid them good money for more detailed personal advice. There are only very few good agents that offer a free first consultation.Plus there is a limit on how much you can ask for free(totally understandable since that’s their job). But not really for me as a young student. Questions like these come to my mind quite often and seeing how expensive it is($150+) to ask even more questions,it deters me from doing so I ask them on here for free instead. I know most people on here aren’t professionals and I’m not looking for legal advice on here. Mainly for information. Lastly,I’m not ready to actually immigrate to Australia now. It’s something that might happen in a few years from now but for now I’m just asking questions to find out about certain things should I decide to move there after all(I’m aware things and laws change very quickly so something that might be the case now,might not be in 4 years from now).
  3. If you can't be on a tourist visa to do that,what visa can you be on?
  4. or is it only in general occupations? Because I'd like to know if you can use your years of work experience in a trade occupation for both a skills assessment as well as for points.
  5. I've been thinking about going to Melbourne to study but I would like to ask for more opinions about it. I was discussing it with an acquaintance of mine who also moved to Australia a while back.She is married with a family there,not an international student. She was telling me about how hard it is to make ends meet with just 20 hours of work per week,plus the wages are bad for international students. Also,a lot of people say they have to work illegally as well because the wages of the part time jobs are not enough as the life is expensive in Australia. If you are an international student,please share your thoughts. Thank you.
  6. Because I'd like to go on a 485 visa after finishing my diploma of hospitality studies(patisserie stream).
  7. A few years back,I went to Australia to study.I came back to Europe last year but I would like to go back to continue my studies. The previous time I was there,I changed courses twice.I was just 19 at the time and I didn’t know what I wanted to study(I’m aware that Immigration doesn’t care about this of course). The first time I changed course was because I was being bullied at school so I chose a completely new school AND course field as well. The second time was because the course was very hard for me academically so I ended up changing course field and school again. Everything was good at the 3rd school. I remember my lawyer(back then) had told me Immigration won’t like the fact I’m changing courses and fields because they might think I’m not a genuine student. Now,I’m wondering if they might refuse my visa if I apply again because of my immigration history. Also,if after I finish my studies,I want to enroll in another course,what are the chanced they will let me do so? Thank you.
  8. Can the JRP be used towards a 489 regional visa ? What visa can I be on while applying and during each step of the JRP? During the entire process of the JRP, can I be employed at the same workplace/shop/company or do I have to change? Are employers generally hesitant to hire you given that they have to go through all this paperwork for the JRP? In the fees section it says "provisional skills assessment review(if required)" and "subsequent job ready workplace assessment(if required)".What are those?
  9. Most occupations in fields with many visa options do not interest me though f.e.engineering or also have limited visa options. From what I've understood they value work experience a lot in order to get a visa and that's what I find the hardest. Seeing you are a migration agent,do you think an agent could help me with my visa strategy or is that something I have to plan for myself since I have to choose what I like etc?

    489 Visa for Victoria

    How is that possible?Does that happen with all states?
  11. I'm not sure yet but I'm thinking about customer service manager.
  12. Thanks for your reply. Darn...And I have an inclination towards management...Is VETASSESS the same? I think most occupations require work experience for the skills assessment.I'm wondering how us in our early 20's will gain work experience in Australia after our qualifications in the first place?

    How can someone get sponsored by a state when the occupation they nominated is not on the state's list?
