I think one of the main reasons why its hard to secure a role from overseas is due to the sheer volume of candidates that are received for jobs advertised online. My flatmate is in I.T and a recruitement agent told him the other day that she was getting 50+ email applications per day for a role she posted ... after 4 or 5 days she had to take the job down due to the sheer number of applicants. With that amount of applications from LOCAL applicants, she said its not even wothwhile considering offshore applications (just adds another level of complexity to the process). Of course, if you industry doesnt have alot of local applicants for you to compete against its a totally different story ... ?

I'm surprised the use of technology like web conferencing is not an option, or I am not good enough for them to walk the extra mile? Anyway, if job hunting onshore is difficult for new migrants, I can imagine how much harder it is to do it offshore.

Do I really have to be physically in the country before I can secure a job? Anyone's got a success story to share?
Yes, there are companies who look for overseas candidate as they can low ball on salaries /position. You can get it that way.

I agree 100% with the posts here that there are slim chances you would be even called upon for an interview.
however, i have a slightly different question and i would appreciate if you share your thoughts.

i am right now waiting for my outcome to be announced. i have applied in subclass 189 with family. right now i cant remember if thats the independent one. ...apologies for that.

i was wondering, no matter how long you wait to gather money to sail through bad times while you are looking for a job, you still have to go through that period...shorter or larger. so isnt it the best that it comes at the earliest...when you are new to the aussie soil rather than you wait until 4 years then you go there with loads of money and that period starts before you get a job.
my idea for myself and family is..once i get the PR, i immediately move to Oz land and look for odd jobs to maintain the life line. meanwhile searching for full-time relevant job or education opps. would that be considered a wise option? does anyone have an idea how easy it is to secure an odd job at the convenient store near your house or at the supermarket few miles away.
i might be wrong...but thats how i am looking at things right now.
anyone please give some suggestions?
