Is your CV written in a foreign language?

Simple things like checking any acronyms used in your resume to see if they are internationally recognized acronyms. It’s best to spell it out if you’re unsure.

Change your spelling from American to Australian or British English.


To make this easier for you, you can adjust your spelling options in MS Word. Granted, this isn’t a big deal because they’ll already know you’re from America, but it’s the extra effort that makes a difference.

Going through a recruiter increases your chances of finding better-fitting employment and an employer who is actively looking for you and willing to assist you in obtaining a working visa as well as assisting you with your move to Sydney.

Another alternative is to use the new Skillselect online service, which connects experienced workers with employers in Australia.

You can change jobs if you hold a 482 Temporary Business Visa or another temporary business visa. Your new company will be responsible for transferring your visa, which is a relatively simple process. You have 60 days to find a new sponsor if you leave your employment while on a Temporary Business Visa. Otherwise, your visa will expire.
