Your application will be considered in regard to what age you are at time of application and you should make yourself aware of changes to be introduced this year which you can find on the Whats New list via link at top of Professionals and other Skilled Migrants - Workers - Visas & Immigration , there also being information re processing priorities there too.

It is difficult to find employment from abroad unless an organisation is after rare skilled people and someone is a good fit; but it'll be a good idea for you to do some research and just see how the employment market is in your field for Australian companies are sending as much work offshore to cheaper labour countries as they can.

Hello softy

In the visa process you have a preparation time. For example taking ielts test, getting occupation approval etc. This can takes some months. After you completed the requested documents you will be ready to apply. This is the stage that the age is important. Assume that you applied at your 34 (if don't remember wrong, 34 is the limit. After this age, points will be reduce)
After your application, your points won't reduce anymore, while your visa process.

Visa process can take 1-2 years time. (No one can say how long it takes). You can be reach 35 years or over age but it's not matter...

About applying job from germany. Of course, you can. But it's hard to get a positive reply. Because of the long time of the process, companies usually doesn't care with these kind of applications. Becase there are lots of candidates in the local market, who took their visas by themselves already. But in some conditions, some companies can be sponsored to the people. And visa process can be getting faster with these kind of situations (ENS visas). I think its worth to try. Good luck
