Finding work in Australia from abroad

Hi Folks. PR visa granted under GSM. Ideally wanting to secure employment before making the move. For obvious reasons with 2 small children. What are peoples' experiences of this? I work in the construction industry doing CAD and building alterations. I'm searching and making applications but it feels difficult.

Gongrats on PR, i am on visa process .

I have the same plan of remotely searching for a job, but it seems difficult . Maybe you need to travel for 1 - 2 month for the job search .

I'm in construction industry too work as quantity surveyor.
I have some friends working there and advising us to actually move overthere and apply instead of apply offshore. Employers would prefer see you in person.
I'm worried as you coz i'd never unemploy all this while. If you ask me to resign and move over, it really need lots of courage. If not, we shall all work in casual.
Honestly, all of us don't want to work which is out of our profession.

Well, could always check DIAC website for your eligibility.

I know I am egligible. I just want to know is it possible to secure job before arrival. One more thing, is there a time limit for arrival in Australia after the grant of visa?

Once visa is granted they will tell you the date by which you need to enter. They gave us 10 months.

The date is linked to expiration of your medical and police checks (whatever comes first). So if your police checks or medicals expire in 3 months you'll have three months to do initial entry. If they expire in 12 months you will have 12 months for entry.
For UK/Germany/Canada it is medical expiration as DIAC has direct access to their national police systems and would be notified should applicant do something unlawful.

This is not an immigration advice

Yes there is. But the possibility is low. Employers put priorities to immigrants who's already there. This info has been told by most of my friends who's working there. If you apply job offshore, probably they won't entertain your application.
