I have 9 years of IT experience in the field of Business Intelligence and Datawarehousing, and out of this 6 years has been in the United States.
Can you gimme an idea of IT job prospects for me in Australia, Is it difficult to find a job ? Which cities should I target for a job hunt ?

Yes, it is difficult to find work in Australia and probably much better chances in other countries, a lot of IT work being outsourced offshore to cheaper labour countries.

If you have absolutely no preference on where to live, I'd presume Sydney or Melbourne would give the most fruitful results for specialised IT roles. Have a look at the jobs search sites.

Pretty much every Australian skilled migration event I've been to (in the UK) has someone from 'Hays' in attendance. I do have the business card of someone I met from Hays who specialises in IT roles - I'll edit this post if I find it.

Edit: Found it. But I suppose I shouldn't publish his details on a public message board. message me privately if you want them.

Given you don't have Australian experience - start may not be easy and you might work below what you worked for in US. As for outsourcing work - a lot of it goes to India, Singapore and Kuala Lumpur. Your chances are the best in Sydney or Melbourne.

Agree, Sydney and Melbourne are the better places for IT Jobs.
Sydney has twice the opportunity and twice the number of IT Job seekers.

First job or contract is difficult to get and can take some 2 to 3 months time. If you are physically outside Australia employers will not consider you.

Best luck

Ah, thanks for letting me know. But when I try to PM gauravs04, I get:

gauravs04 has chosen not to receive private messages or may not be allowed to receive private messages. Therefore you may not send your message to him/her.
I guess both users (sender and receiver) have to be over 5?
