Where to look for Australian Jobs:

Looking for a dream job requires a lot of determination, effort and proactive attitude. Exploring various sources and networking plays an important role in increasing chances of starting new employment. Those based outside Australia face the challenge of time difference and not being immediately available to attend interviews in person. As it is becoming more common for interviews to be carried out on phones, Skype or other digital platforms, it makes easier for people to move around in the era of global mobility.

Things you should do to make your job project successful include researching the local jobs market, salaries, industries, skills in local demand. Make sure your CV is up to date and provides relevant information. Tailor your cover letter according to the role you are applying for. Know your potential future employer. See if they offer sponsorship to foreign workers, if not, seek other Visa options such as Skilled Migrant Visa.
