It probably really depends on what employers if any are in attendance Jack and if any particular professions are being sought, nurses and doctors always in demand, perhaps not so for Electricians.
And for an electrician, there's a few steps in the process, ie.
. Get trade assessed.
. Get a visa
. And then in Australia, you'll need to do a short course on Australian Wiring Regulations and work under supervision for up to a year to get fully licensed.

Quite a few changes afoot right now too and you can read of them @
