Alot of it is the luck of the draw.

My brother works in IT and said there are not alot of IT jobs around (professional ones, like programming etc). There do seem to be jobs around for help desk and IT support though.

I know someone who got a job on a PMV in Perth in Sales.

My husband knows someone who has been here on a 309 for 3 months and still hasn't found a job.

Really it is just the luck of the draw.

Just wanted to share our experience. We moved to Adelaide last month and in the first week we were both offered permanent full-time positions. Mine in nursing and my hubby (he is PR) was offered two positions in IT (programming). We were both very lucky to start work right away.

I am on BVA with full working permission but it is still really hard for me to get a job in my field. I have applied a lot of jobs but only receive a few calls back. Most of them prefer "local experience" and "PR".

I am still searching for jobs and hopefully it will be easier when I get 820. Stay positive

Whats your profession and are your overseas qualifications accepted here?
Have you Australianised your CV ?
You need to also think outside the square, many people will tell you it is easier to get another job when you are already working. Take any job you can and the try improving yourself. Amazingly it seems to work.

I have Australian professional qualification in accounting and I used to study in Australia where I met my partner. I am currently looking for part-time/contract/temp work as well.

Do you have any advice on "Australianised" CV?

If you read back through the posts here you will find some ideas on what others have done.
Also get someone to check your CV for spelling mistakes and grammatical errors, it is often the little things that make a difference.
Good luck!
