IT in Sydney - Securing a job before moving (no sponsorship required)

Recommended Posts

Guest GiraffesGiraffes

Hi,

 

I'm a recent graduate and I'm thinking of applying for the Skilled Recognised Graduate 476 visa, for which I am eligible, to go to Sydney.

 

Until October, I will be working as an engineering contractor in London in a worldwide recognised software company. That being said, I have not been able to save up too much money (I just graduated last year). My question is: how probable do you guys think it is to get offered a position in the IT industry before moving over, given the fact that no sponsorship would be required? Is it impossible or just a bit harder? Will being a recent graduate work against me?

 

I've started saving as much money as possible, but I don't think I could survive more than 2 or 3 months in Sydney without working.

 

Thanks!

To be honest I'd think your chances are slim, you'll be competing against many people that are on the ground ready to attend face to face interviews and start work immediately.

Hi SpottyDog,

 

Thanks for the reply. I was hoping that wouldn't be the case but I guess that was just wishful thinking. I'll have to save up, then, to be able to survive a few months without a job.
