..and much much more!

Recommended Posts

My partner and I are moving out to Sydney in March. We are looking to go out for a couple of years as a career extension/adventure. Currently we do not have any work sorted for when we get there. Our intention is to go over on a Working Holiday Visa and find a company who is willing to sponsor.


does anyone have any experience of doing the same?


we're also looking at jobs prior to leaving but I feel like a pointless exercise as nobody is willing to hire (and sponsor) over the phone/Skype.


Our industries are Technology and Marketing.


Any guidance is much appreciated!

First, have you checked if your occupations are available for sponsorship?

Second, you need to be aware that even if one of your occupations is eligible, it is very hard to obtain.

WHVs don't usually lead to sponsorships, nor are they designed to, they're for getting around and sightseeing whilst earning a few bob. You may never pick up a contract in your field at all. You'll only get the 2 yrs if you do your 3 months regional work.
