Question 457 Visa Affectee

Hello All,
I am looking for some advise regarding my situation. I came here in June 2012 on 457 visa. My employer will cease my employment by end of June 2015 as he is wrapping-up his business and going back to USA.
I am an experienced IT consultant and have worked for various large companies like BHP Billiton, Accenture and Brisbane City Council. I have 5+ years of IT experience which includes 3 years of Australian experience. I am getting few responses from recruiters but they are not ready to sponsor or transfer my visa. Moreover I have also submitted my expression of interest for state sponsorship with 60 points and my points will be increased by 5 points by end of this of month. I was expecting quick response from migration due to the fact that I am living in Brisbane and have also worked here almost of three years. Obviously I have paid good amount of taxes . I am SAP certified consultant and have good knowledge of data migration, business analysis ,system configuration and user training.
I have two options
  1. Keep looking for a job for next few months and meanwhile I will get some outcome from migration in next three to four months. It means that I have to wait for next 1.5 years to get Australian Citizenship
  2. Go back to Pakistan or Middle-East and say good-bye to Australia after claiming my super. Then I can wait there for visa invitation. Once I get invitation then will apply for permanent residency. It means that I have to spend four years again to get Australian Citizenship
