Question for 189 Visa holders

Recommended Posts

Out of interest, how many of you just headed straight out to Aus without a job, and who else waited for a job offer before embarking?

We are going to be applying for a 189 without a job. Everyone we spoke to who specialises in recruiting in my hubby's industry basically said 'get the visa and then call us before you leave the UK' - in a nutshell it seems many employers (tho not all) will only consider you for a role when you've actually got the right to live/work in Oz for obvious reasons. So we will secure our visas, and then do some calling around before we actually leave to set up interviews/etc.

You would be very lucky to get a job here from the UK, most employers will, understandably, want to meet you in person before committing !
