Working holiday visa questions from a french


I am currently living in France, I am 23 years old man and just got a HND diploma in mechanical engineering. Though I don't think this is where I really want to work.

Anyway, I was reading on Canberra city and it felt the best for me. Also I read on the "Working holiday visa" and questions arose :

If we find this "short-term employment" in Australia, is it possible next to find a long-term employment which would enable me to stay longer?

Thank you for clarifying my position. Jeremy.

Some people have been fortunate enough to use a WHV as a stepping stone to other visas and though there is nothing to stop you considering more permanent employment, a PR visa in skilled areas is dependent on you having qualifications/experience and so the first step you may want to consider prior to even coming on a WHV is having your qualifications assessed by the IEA, a diploma level qualification perhaps getting you what may be called an engineering associate level assessment.
That may allow you to find employment with an employer prepared to sponsor you.
Have a look at details via Workers - Visas & Immigration and if you have success finding an employer, it is likely that a Temporary Residency Sponsorship is going to be more applicable and then that can lead to PR.
You may also want to consider on arrival first doing some regional work or WWOOF Australia Official Website so as to qualify for a second WHV and that will give you a second year for the greater chance of finding an employer.
And you may want to set your sights further afield than Canberra for opportunities.
Canberra having not the greatest of climates either.
