Graphic/Web Designer looking for sponsored work in Australia...

Recommended Posts

Hi all!

 

 

I am a 27 year old Graphic/Web/UI/Visual Designer (I fit into all those job categories!) with a Graphic Design degree under my belt and years of experience working full time as well as freelance. I visited Australia back in 2012 on a Working Holiday Visa, worked freelance for a few Australian clients, and also did some retail work, but I only stayed 7 months (which seems a long time to me anyway!) due to personal circumstances.

 

After living the lifestyle, and also having family members in Oz, I'd now like to move there and find design employment. I'd happily work freelance or full time.

 

However, although there are lots of suitable jobs around all across Australia, many state that you will of course need eligibility to work in Australia. But I'd need a company to sponsor me.

 

I was wondering if anyone had any advice on finding sponsored work as a Designer please? Shall I continue to apply for jobs on sites like Seek and just tell them I'd like them to sponsor me? Or should I be going down better, alternative routes to find sponsored work?

 

I'd really appreciate any advice, thank you in advance!

 

 

Dale

Hi

If you need a company to sponser you then try contacting companys direct, if there is no way you can travel here to approach companys in person (probably the easiest way to find someone), try ringing around companys and see what response you get, the White Pages on line should give you lots of contact details.

Good Luck with everything

If you don't go after what you want, you'll never have it. If you don't ask, the answer is always no. If you don't step forward, you're always in the same place...

If you get a chance,take it, If it changes your life,let it. Nobody said it would be easy they just said it would be worth it...
