Do you already have a visa? If not is advertising on the CSOL or SOL? If not you will not be able to get a skilled visa and it may explain why there is little discussion of it on here.

I know a few people who work in that sector who got sponsored somehow in the last year - on a 457 (these are usually more senior people, creative directors etc)

 

Not sure if that's particularly helpful or whether it's on the CSOL

They seemed to know people already through one way or another, networking etc - so try networking (social media, twitter band LinkedIn?) and get on their radar. also try some recruitment people. There are several on LinkedIn who hire for ad/branding/design agencies

It would need to be on the CSOL to get sponsored on a 457

HI,

 

thank you for your reply .

 

just went through CSOL List, it is listed as

 

225111

Advertising Specialist

225113

Marketing Specialist

 

would like to inform, that am an advertising professional on the ( OOH - out of home ) platform as a client servicing executive, with 3 years of work ex and about 1 yr of work on BTL before that . but i don't think that i would fit in the ( specialist ) part, as it would require about 8 to 10 years of work ex .

 

any other advice on how to go about it would be helpful.

Google the codes and see if it fits what you do and your qualifications. Those are the minimum you would need for an employer sponsored visa. If you don't have that then you are in trouble.

Vetassess do the skills assessments for Advertising Specialiat so that's the best website to look at for skills assessment requirements.

 

You do not actually need a skills assessment for a 457 visa but it will give you an idea of the expected level of a 'specialist' - it won't be 8-10 years - probably a degree plus one year or 5 years without a degree.

 

The problem is with the level of experience you have it is unlikely you would find a sponsor from overseas anyway.

 

Are you under 30? It may be worth getting a working holiday visa (if you come from a country where you can) and use the time to market yourself to possible sponsors.

Look on LinkedIn

 

find people who do the jobs you do or want to do, link/make friends (somehow) and look though their contacts, you will see recruitment people - and message them. Not too hard, but it takes a while to dig about. You just need to be resourceful
