Smile Sponsorship opportunities

Good day! I am new to this forum chat.... I am a Canadian citizen and will be travelling to Oz in September in the hopes of securing fulltime employment in the hospitality industry in Sydney or possibly Melbourne. However, although I have close to 18yrs of experience I am 40 and am aware that the only option for a reasonably quick visa is to have someone sponsor me. I have been in contact with recruitment agencies and they are willing to help but only once i am there??? My concern is this is a big relocation without a employment to go to. Does anyone have any suggestions, knowledge of the process or difficulties I may face??? Need some feedback.
Thanks for any input

You'll find employment agencies will have plenty of locals on their books and that's why they'll not much be interested unless you're here and then many if not most will only be interested if you already have a visa that'll allow you to work.
I think your best approach is to view this as a recce trip more so than intent of a permanent move and you'll need to consider what visa you get to come for a standard tourist visa can have a No Further Stay condition which precludes you from applying for another visa if you did find an employer.
So look at getting an ETA - Electronic Travel Authority (ETA) - Online Applications
Whatever visa you get, even though it is not illegal to visit with an intent to just see what work options are, if you do give that impression, it is but a short step to viewing someone as looking for work and not having a visa that allows it so it pays to be selective with your approach and not to have a whole heap of work related clothing or documents with you.
You can always scan documents and email them to yourself or even use Post Restante to send a letter or parcel to yourself C/o a City GPO Post Office at where you are first heading - http://auspost.com.au/
Get an idea from your Canadian Postal Service of send time and you can probably get something away just before you leave and have it arriving a few days after you.

Before you even get that far though you ought to do some homework on what the prospects will be for Australia has not been totally immune from the GFC and competition for work is strong, especially in major cities such as Melbourne and Sydney.
You'll need to match up to employment in a position that's on the ENSOL - Skilled Occupation Lists (Formerly Known as Form 1121i) and be seeking an employer sponsor for that type of work.

Rather than just think of Melbourne or Sydney, I'd think you might do better to have a completely open mind to getting a leg in the door.
Great Barrier Reef Resort - Heron Island Resort Great Barrier Reef is one island you'll see that is part of the Delaware North Group, a Canadian company I believe or one with Canadian interests and so why not approach them in Canada for starters.

DN seem to have taken over a few resorts from Voyagers and they still have others - Voyages Hotels and Resorts - Australia
And quite a few other GBR island locations - Island Resorts Hotels & Accommodation - Island Holidays
A lot of sites have an employment link and I'd be making contact where there are jobs available that are also on the ENSOL.

Perth area seems to be on the lookout for people as locals there get sucked into higher paying work of resources sector and also just to handle growth.
Darwin is also something of an expanding frontier.
Serco Sodexo Defence Services Recruitment: Attention might also be worth a look at.
If you find an employer sponsor for an ENSOL job that you'll match to, the process is reasonably simple and outlined at Visa Options - Employer Sponsored Workers - Workers - Visas & Immigration
But your chances may be a lot better if you're prepared to be flexible with where you locate to.
Good Luck.

Gday everyone

I need an advice actually. How real it is to find a job in Australia? I am from Azerbaijan and want to migrate there. But I am on the first stage only - just having IELTS exam in February. Is there any possibility to find a job?

I am Geotechnical Engineer, if it makes sence. But my work experience is not so much. Where I can look for an employer?

Thanks in advance

Some interesing responses here. Here is some basic advice to tailor your resume to the Australian market:

1. Take out date of birth, physical characteristics, marital status, religion and similar details - you cannot be discriminated or selected for a position in Australia based on these characteristics
2. Include a skills summary at the beginning that highlights your technical and professional capabilities
3. If English is not your first language it is ok to say how fluent you are
4. Keep salary negotiations for when you are offered a job unless asked
5 Add in a few (4-5) duties under each position
6. Focus on your last 4 - 5 years of experience
7. Include the details of two referees - these are the contact details of people that can testify to your work capabilities
8. Highlight any additional work, extra responsibilities or leadership positions you might have undertaken

Hope this helps. Feel free to go to our site for a free sample.
