This isn't spam or a green card lottery or anything like that, a friend of mine sent it to me. It's some new E3 visa that Aussies can get.

Thought it was pretty big news.

Hi,
This is a long shot, but your friend wouldnt happen to know
where's the best place to look for jobs of companies offering sponsorship for this visa.
Cheers

No such luck...

What kind of qualifications do you have? I think this makes a big difference.

I meet all the requirements for the visa.
Ive completed a University degree. Ive got a Bachelor of
Commerce, which from what ive been told is a preferred field. Plus ive got a couple of years experience with a London based Accounting company.
I was just wondering if anyone had any info about finding a company that's willing to sponser me, or what the best way about it is.
Cheers
Brad

Wow, sounds like you have exactly what this visa is looking for. I don't know any solid details, but if I were you I would look at sites like monster.com and go to the company homepages of some big accounting firms.

I just did a quick search for "accounting" and "headhunters" and this site came up, http://www.actadv.com/, which looks promising. If you contacted them you could just mention the E3 visa and explain how its easy to sponsor you, etc, etc.

I know that the ski areas sponsor a lot of foreign workers each year. An accounting job might be tough (though I don't know), but if you're just looking to live and work in a fun place, you might want to check out http://skijob1.snow.com/info/gaj.ia.asp.
