This is a guest post but, even so, I thought it was very fitting since I get heaps of questions about finding sponsored jobs in Australia. If you are interested in contributing to SMG please read through my terms and conditions.
Are you having trouble finding a job that offers visa sponsorship for Australia?
Here are 10 tips to increase your chances of landing a sponsored job in Australia.
- Find out if you qualify for a 457 visa by completing a visa assessment created by an Accredited Migration Agent.
- There is more than one way to apply for a 457 Visa, make sure you are aware of all your visa options before you start applying for jobs as this will give you a big advantage. For more information contact an expert.
- Make sure your resume fits the Australian Standard and tailor your cover letter to the job opportunities you are applying for. It is also very important for you to add the keywords you found on the job description in your CV and Cover Letter. This will rank your resume higher on database searches and increase your chances of getting an interview.
- Include your visa options in your cover letter. This will show you did your homework and know what your options are.
- Research about your Industry in Australia to understand what it takes to get a job here, what salary you should expect and which qualifications you need.
- Use social media to build your name in the Australian Market by following or connecting to influential people in your Industry and commenting on their posts.
- Look for opportunities in job boards for non-residents; avoid applying for jobs via recruitment agencies and look for opportunities on the hidden job market.
- Apply for jobs based on quality and not quantity. Make sure you fit the criteria described on the job post.
- Follow up with employers after applying for jobs via phone or email, even if it’s just by sending a thank you note.
- Practice for interview’s answers. Interviews in Australia can be very different from any other country as Australians may be more interested to know about your personality, hobbies, strengths and weakness, etc.
