o.k. hopefully I'm gonna be travellin' b4 I go insane of living in the same place for over 1/4 of a century!!!

By July/August next year I'd have paid off my student loans and have some money stashed up for an adventure in Australia, but I'd quite like to supplement my travels by working, and preferably in a job which can aid my career when I decide I've had enough of being a traveller.

Does anyone know if it's possible to get a professional job while travellin in Oz?

Do you have any particular profession in mind

By the way, are you really 107 years old?

I'm 25 earth years old ;)

Anyway, was hoping to look for some I.T. (not programming) jobs, if anyone knows of how I can go about looking for one that'd be great, just something to keep me ticking...

What kind of IT?
Most companies, the company I work for included, would probably be very reluctant to employ someone on a work visa (which you will have of course???)just to see them take off after 3-6 months.
The cost of training and integration to the IT department wouldn't warrant the hassle, and 3 months is the normal probationary period for an Australian citizen anyway.
Unless you're a gun hand at some immediate and in-demand specialised area, I don't think much of your chances.
I might be wrong, but keep you options.

I'm hoping to get some support roles' maybe helpdesk etc... where staff turnover is high.

btw whats the situation with the contract market there? 'cos at the moment I work 2nd/3rd network/server support. If I could find some contract work for 3-6 months that would be ideal

Or maybe I'd just ask my current Co' to let me work remotely
... is there any wireless connections in the outback
