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.;)

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

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?
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.

Hi,
My friends & I tried job search in Australia in 2009. I could not find one but my friend did.
One is been employed at Power plant near singleton NSW, one is in mining industry, and other with some company as procurement analyst.

If you have enough fund to survive for 4-6 months then just take the next flight for Australia. You can get job in construction,mining domain easily.

look for job website like seek

Goodluck :)

I am currently working as a legal assistant in Canada and moving to Australia permanently within the next year. I was wondering if any other paralegals or legal assistants have had success in finding employment at an Aussie law firm?

Hi

You need to get yourself check the points you score as per the rules check DIAC website. Usually at young age the PR visa is easier. as you grow old its diifficult to get the minimum score. the process also takes long time say one year provided you respond to the Visa Office ASAP each time they ask you some additional information.

i ahppend to applly two times for PR visa and got two times. currently its valid and soon planning to move but awaiting some job at least to survive first. but seems difficult. we need to dare.

All the best.

Regards
Nag
