Working Visa - Australia

Anyone done the whole working holiday visa in Australia program? Or maybe knows someone that has used the sponsorship work program there. Really looking to see my options as I approach the age of no return...

I did the working holiday visa thing for Australia about 5 years ago. The whole process was done online and I was approved within a couple days. Super easy. Let me know if you have any questions about it.

As long as you have no prior convictions, are of the age and have no diseases or illnesses, you should be approved in less than a few days. Its all done online, even the medical checks.

Sounds easy enough. How was it actually looking for employment though? I can't imagine too many places wanting to hire someone for under 6 months...

There's tons of temporary work in rural areas/small towns such as picking fruit and hospitality work that's geared towards WHV backpackers.

In the city, it's going to be the same as here in Canada - you're unlikely to get hired in Australia for something you wouldn't get hired for back home. With my experience (IT field) I was able to get contract work pretty easily in Sydney. YMMV.
