  1. Great and inspiring article, 120 applications, what an astounding, but trying, effort. Were you focusing initially only on a specific sector, or just trying to land a “job”? Do you feel that visa sponsorship was a particularly big hurdle in your situation, might someone with a spouse visa have a bit of a leg up in a similar situation? thanks

  2. Hey there,

    Thanks very much for dropping by and commenting.

    At first, I was focusing on an IT job, since that was my background and what I enjoy doing. However, as money started to dwindle and my options started to thin out, naturally I suddenly became far less choosy…! I would have taken pretty much anything at that point.

    Visa sponsorship in my particular situation was not a huge issue, since I had a Working Holiday Visa, which allowed me unlimited license to travel and work for 1.5 years.

    If you have a spousal visa, it definitely gives you a leg-up over the competition, since there are no admin hoops to jump through. If they like you, you can start working immediately without worrying about any kind of visa application which can take between 2 to 8 weeks.

    I hope that answers your question!
