its almost impossible to get a job from overseas unless you have some contacts/friends etc that basically give you the job. The better recruitment companies will basically tell you straight out they won't forward overseas resume's on. At least this is true from my experience

if I were you I'd start floating resumes maybe a month before you go so you can line up face-to-face interviews for when you arrive, and in your emails ask specifically to meet them in person in anticipation of your arrival. you don't want to apply so early that you ask for a phone or skype interview but obviously the sooner you start in general the better. just make sure you can follow each message up with an actual in person interview and ask for one in each message, which is the real issue. online job applications are really just asking for an in person interview which is why for a lot of people they don't go anywhere.

I am also from India, have got visa invitation (subclass 189), and will apply for it in a month's time. If visa is granted, I will also be in the same situation. I have 12 years of software development experience. Planning to eventually migrate there with whole family. Hoping for better future there.

Hello all,

Well, these stories worry me. I have not tried yet though as I am still preparing to apply for subclass 189 visa (I'm planning to submit the application some time before June next year). Being married with little children makes it even more difficult for me personally to take the risk of coming to Aussie unemployed (i.e., living costs plus the obligation to provide my family with living, etc.).

I agree with what some folks that suggested keeping up with LinkedIn. I'll be doing this as soon as I'm lodging in the application. Also, I have tried to reach out to friends who live in cities such as Melbourne and Sydney just so that I could build a network as early as I could. Let's just hope things go well as planned. Anyone who is having a similar plan to mine or has gone through the experience based on such plan, please kindly share it with us :-)

Best regards,

...Shamu the whale...

Hi

Actually they prefer local experience but fly to Australia and give it a try as they mostly recruit through face to face interviews. If u are lucky enough u will get one soon. Nothing to loose but prepare yourself for the expenses.

ALL THE VERY BEST
