This is great advice. Having moved countries several times I think just knowing that somehow things will work out is a big advantage. backup plans help with this.

There is also lots you can do on the jobs front before you arrive and depending on what you do this is more important that ever.

If you have skills in high demand you can get feedback directly from employers and recruitment consultants before you arrive. However, if you have great experience (even in high demand), it is not just a matter of sending a CV - you have to be proactive like picking up the phone and asking for feedback - telling them when you arrive and the visa you are on. You have to make it easy as possible for them. Start by sending a CV and getting a response of some sort - a name is all you really need - then call.

If your skills are not in such high demand that you can get a response easily - do not fret - this is the case for most people, but be prepared to treat getting a job like your first job.

It is an adventure without equal - enjoy the adventure if you choose to accept.

There are a lot of obstacles that confront someone contemplating a move to Australia - access to family, getting a job, distance from friends, housing costs, ... and more. These are all significant considerations and should be considered against personal preferences.

Despite these obstacles, there is nowhere else that I would contemplate raising a family or calling home.

Hi, I have been reading all those thoughts here about migration and I should say that they are correct. Migrating is not an easy way, you have to thinks it over and do some planning with your family ahead of time. In my own opinion, the best thing to do is to know about the location you will be heading to in order to be sure and before you finally decide. With that matter, I heard that there are professionals nowadays who are well versed to assist you in such cases like moving to another place.You might as well try to contact them to settle all your worries about migration.
