Applying for jobs - 189 visa

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I wondered what the consensus on this might be. I'm wondering whether people who have received 189 visa grants went on to apply for jobs before they moved to Australia or not?

 

I have family in Perth, so I know that if/when I get over there I will at least have somewhere I can stay for a while which would let me look for work, if I chose not to get a job prior to flying out. On the other hand, the idea of not having a job to go to is a bit unsettling - but I'm unclear how easily one would be able to apply for a job from here. Are employers receptive to immigration applicants?

 

Thanks.

It depends what you do, but on the whole, no employers are not particularly receptive and most people will need to be here on the ground.

Thank you, I kind of thought this would be the case. I'd be doing software development. (Developer Programmer 261312).
