Sounds like you have it all in India

There are sales jobs here, as an example I visited search the keyword "sales" and this was the result Australia wide. Give or take a few, but there are a lot of sales jobs.. SEEK - Australia's no. 1 jobs, employment, career and recruitment site the results gave 32,000+ in all different fields and locations.

Though if you decide to move here you will be using a big chunk of your savings to get yourself established prior to getting that job. (unless you had family/friends that you could stay with prior to becoming settled)

At the end of the day it's really your choice. NO one can give you advice how to live your life and help you decide which way to go.

As for when your PR visa expires. I think there is opportunity to re-apply again for it. I don't know the process but someone here would. Here are some topics where people talked about reapplying..

Good luck

Australia is difficult for people to get jobs in their field at the moment when they have no Australian experience.

This is something that only you can decide what is right for you.

If you do decide to make the move to Australia make sure you bring enough money to last you 3 to 6 months incase it takes awhile to find a job.

You can apply for a resident return visa but if you haven't made the move to Australia they may only give you a year on it. Ultimately it is up to DIBP if they renew the PR.

If you can, perhaps visit your brother/friend without your family at first to check what life is like here before taking a long term decision.

Perhaps talk to some potential employers - find some job advertisements and see how they react to you when you tell them about your background and what you can offer. Even without a job advertisement, find companies you might want to work for and try talking to the people there.

I agree with la.vie even what Mish said is true! Most employers will look for the Australia experience before hiring. It was so hard that I think it is madness. If I want to apply for a entry level career, the criteria still asks for experience in the job position! So at this point, I think people who study and get internship at the companies, maybe could get the desired job easier than people who have no experience on that position.

It could be wise if you come yourself without your family in India, to see how the acceptance of employers here. If you get the job, then it is worth for your family to come. My concern is the living cost for one whole family that may burden you more than the cost of yourself being here. If you can afford the living cost here, i think it will be better for children to grow up here with the education and support from the gov. Just my opinion..

When it comes to re-apply..
I mean lost an opportunity to extend it while still in australia ( like applying for a 155 visa)
Then you have to know, once your Visa has expired, you have to make a brand new application.
And to get a Visa gets harder and harder,
and also more and more costly. .

Trust me.. been there , done that

Visa Sub Class: 820/801
Application Made : On Paper
Agent Used: Nope
