Hello all. I just today joined on here for this specific question. Sometime in the next year or so, I would like to be moving to Australia, haven't gotten serious in the search for which city yet, but I know how to do that. What I don't know how to do yet is where to find a job before getting over there, if that is at all possible. Maybe I'm just thinking too simply, but if there's a system to jobsearching overseas and landing a job before arriving, I would greatly appreciate the help. I'm not ballsy enough to get there before having any source of income aside from what I already have.

Depends what visa you intend on aquiring (if you need one that is) most people on here obtain working holiday visas which allow 18-30-year-olds to work for up to 12 months (longer if you undertake certain directions).

Although work is meant to be on a casual basis, it is a good way to build up experience and contacts and you could find an employer willing to sponsor you to stay on a longer-term visa.

You'll probably find this an easier way of finding a job as opposed to trying to get recruited from overseas.

Unless you have a job which is on the skilled occupations list (SOL) I'd say it'd be pretty hard to get employment.
