Nab That Job in Australia! has created a new service to assist those seeking job sponsorship in Australia. This new Tailored Australian Job Search Strategy will give job seekers an edge when applying for jobs in Australia, as it enables you to tap directly into the hidden job market in Australia.
Nab That Job in Australia! Is focussed on the hidden job market in Australia, because this is where approximately 70% of all jobs in Australia are found. That means that if you are only applying for jobs that are advertised on the internet – job search websites for example, you are only viewing up to 30% of the current vacant positions in Australia.
So just what is the hidden job market, and how can you access it, I hear you ask yourselves!
This new service, called the Tailored Australian Job Search Strategy, is an amazing new service that will immensely benefit your Australian job search, particularly if you are seeking job sponsorship in Australia.
How this service works, is you send your resume to the Nab That Job in Australia! Consultants, who analyse your background and through consultation with you, paint an accurate picture of your skills and experience, as well as what your ideal role is – what you will be looking for in Australia. Normally clients will already have had their resumes and cover letters professional converted into a competitive Australian format (which is what Nab That Job in Australia! highly recommends before purchasing this Tailored Job Search Strategy), so this consulting part will have already been accomplished.
The document is split into two sections – Mainstream Job Search Strategy, focusing on those job search channels that the majority of job seekers access. This will include job search websites specific to your industry, as well as reputable specialised recruitment agencies.
The list of reputable recruitment agencies that will be prepared, will be specific for your industry, and instructions on how to approach recruitment agencies will be included – a touchy area, when it comes to finding job sponsorship in Australia. You will receive an honest account of how recruitment agencies operate in Australia, and instructions on how to best approach recruitment agencies and use them to your advantage. They are not always your enemy, even though sometimes it seems as though they don’t want to help you!
The second half of the document, and the main part, focuses on the Hidden Job Market Strategy for finding employment and job sponsorship in Australia. This section includes full instructions on how to tap into the hidden job market for your industry, including how to access and expand your networks, and how to use social networking to your advantage. Your hidden job market job search strategy will then move into “back-door entry” into organisations in your industry.
For this section of the document, the Australian Emigration Job Search Consultants at Nab That Job in Australia! will do research on Australian companies, particularly in the areas of Australia you are interested in. Their findings will be recorded on the document, with a summary of the company, their website information, contact details and the best way to approach each individual company.
Next, the Australian Emigration Job Search Strategist will access their own resources to establish any personal contacts they have in your industry, and record these contacts on the document.
Finally, the document finishes with Final Tips and Recommendations, specific to your background and your industry in Australia.
You can see how powerful this new service will be to your job search in Australia! You will be unstoppable finding job sponsorship in Australia if you take the time and investment to prepare a high-impact, competitive resume and cover letter, and then have an Australian Job Search Strategy specifically tailored for you that you can follow and apply to your job search!
During the first couple of months of the launch of this service, you can access your very own Tailored Australian Job Search Strategy for at a discounted rate. We feel these rates are extremely reasonable for this service, given the amount of energy and time that is required to put the Australian job search strategy together. Hurry though, as the current price will soon be raised to a fee that is more reflective of the work involved.
Further, to launch the new Tailored Australian Job Search Strategy, if you decide to have your resume professionally rewritten so that you will be more competitive when applying for jobs in Australia, and you want to combine the resume service with the Tailored Australian Job Search Strategy, you will receive a tailored professionally written Australian Cover Letter for FREE! The ultimate package for finding job sponsorship in Australia!

A client of mine, Renee Bugden, who has been going for interviews in Australia recently, requested some consulting around 'how you know you are doing well in an interview' - something a lot of people ask, and something that can be very tricky to tell when it is you being interviewed. Sometimes it feels like the interview went really well - only to find out that you were unsuccessful for the job. Other times you feel the interview did not go so well, or you just weren't sure what they thought of you - and then you receive a phone call with a job offer!
Renee took her questions and my answers and turned it into a helpful article to share with you all, with tips for job interview Australia, to help you with your job search in Australia. Hopefully it will clear up some of your questions and help you to get a better picture of how your interviews went.
Renee has titled the interview "How You Know You're Doing Well in an Interview", and she has counted down from 10 to 1, with the number 1 tip being the one that is most likely to give away whether you are being considered for the next stage of the interview process. Great job, Renee!
How You Know You're Doing Well in a Job Interview
10. Interview Goes Over Time
Depending on the type of work and your position, an interview should last between fifteen minutes to an hour. A casual retail position would expect an interview about twenty minutes; a senior manager for a large firm could expect an hour or more. If you’ve been there for longer than expected, you’re doing well!
9. A Connection with the Interviewer
If the interviewer likes you, you’ll see signs such as smiles, lots of note taking, they’ll look you in the eye, questions about likes and personality.
8. They Invite You to Meet Other Team Members
Chances are, they like you already and they’re just seeing how you'll get along with the rest of the team.
7. A Tour of the Working Environment
You see where you’d be working, where the staff room is and other important locations. Sometimes though, this is a standard procedure.
6. Confirm Your Referees
The interviewer will ask about your referees, if they’re available and willing to be called. This means they want to know more about you.
5. It’s All About You
If the interviewer wants to know all about you, then they are interested. Talking about the position and not you means they're just killing time until their next interview.
4. They’ll Tell You
Some interviewers will tell you straight away if you’re on the shortlist. This doesn’t mean you will definitely get the job; but you’ve made it to the next level.
3. Practical Demonstration
This mostly applies to careers in IT. The interviewer gives you an assignment to work out with an appointment at a later date to present your work. For example, a software developer may be asked to write a program. This ensures a second interview… which is always a good sign.
2. Company Information
When an interviewer talks about company uniforms, procedures and other staff-related issues, they’re seeing if you'll accept the conditions. Some interviewers do this with everyone; others only to the best applicants. Usually though, the more info they provide, the better your chance.
1. Considering Other Roles
This is the big one! If the interviewer asks about other roles, they’re really asking how much time they have to hire you. Play hard to get; tell them you have two other call backs (second or third interviews) or that you were offered a position but haven’t taken it yet. This means they definitely want you on their team!

Did you know that South African, Asian and Canadian resumes are the most different from Australian resumes?
This conclusion has come from a 1 1/2 year study conducted by Nab That Job in Australia! Job seekers from South Africa and Asia in particular, tend to have the most difficulty finding employment in Australia, due to the format of their resume being so different from the expectations of Australian employer.
The main areas where resumes of South Africans, Asians and Canadians let them down when applying for jobs in Australia are set out below.
South African Resumes tend to have the following issues, in comparison to Australian resumes:
- Unsophisticated formatting, meaning the information is not presented in an effective manner
- Too much irrelevant information, such as Identification Numbers, personal and family information and detailed information about secondary education
- Not enough detail on the relevant information - such as work experience and achievements
Asian Resumes, including Japan, China, India, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, Hong Kong and other Asian countries; tend to have the following issues in comparison to Australian resumes:
- Photograph included on the resume - this can be a disadvantage in Australia
- Too much irrelevant information, such as religion and family information
- Statement and date at the end of the resume
- Detailed results of qualifications - unnecessary unless requested by the employer
Canadian Resumes tend to have the following issues, in comparison to Australian resumes:
- Too short - one page resumes may be suitable for Canada, however they do not include enough information for what Australian employers require
- Not enough detail on the relevant information - such as work experience and achievements
When applying for jobs in Australia, you have to remember that you are competiting against Australian residents, who are trained in providing what the Australian employer expects. If you do not take the time and effort to research what is expected when applying for jobs in Australia, you may not be very effective or successful in securing employment, or even just getting an interview.
If you find you are feeling unconfident after completing the Nab That Job in Australia! resume assessment, please feel free to forward your resume to our Australian Emigration Job Search Strategist, for a more thorough assessment with recommendations and no obligation quote.

We have great news for Dentists wishing to find a job and emigrate to Australia!
Are you a graduate from a Dental program in Canada, Hong Kong, Malaysia, South Africa, Singapore or the US? Then you may be eligible to participate in the Public Sector Dental Workforce Scheme (PSDWS).
Under this new scheme, PSDWS, those eligible will be granted exemption from the Australian Dental Council (ADC) Preliminary Examination, and a form of "restricted registration" that means that you can practise Dentistry in the public sector in Australia, for a period of up to three years.
The PSDWS requires the participants of the scheme to sit the ADC Final Clinical Examination within that three year period.
Isn't that exciting news?
This means that if you are a Dentist from one of the countries listed above, you may be able to emigrate to Australia much quicker and easier, and only worry about the exams down the track.
Once you have completed your exams, you then have the option of working in the private sector in Australia as a Dentist.
Further - normally the State or Territory that you are practising Dentistry in in Australia, is responsible for carrying the fee involved in sitting the Final Clinical Examination with ADC in Australia. So you are likely to not have to pay the fee of sitting the Australian Dental Council exams!

With many of my clients and visitors to this website originating from non-English speaking countries, quite often what lets them down on the points score for emigrating to Australia can be their English skills, or their IELTS score.
My advice to people who have not scored highly on their IELTS is to not give up. Just because your score is not very high, doesn't mean it never will be. It just means that it is an area that requires your focus.
I have done some research on the subject, and according to an IELTS specialist, less than 10% of candidates receive the IELTS score that they require.
Luckily for you, Nab That Job in Australia! have just partnered up with an organisation who have operated in schools for over 8 years, specialising in preparing and teaching students the IELTS test.
What our new IELTS partners can offer you, is an Online IELTS Preparation Course. As you may know, the International English Language Testing System (IELTS) is a test of English language proficiency. Over 1.2 million candidates take the test each year.
Our course is designed to prepare you to maximise your IELTS score in writing, speaking, listening and reading. Our course includes our special "IELTS Pointers to Success" - proven tips to help you maximise your score. Don't take the IELTS test without taking our course!
NB - The fee includes 3 months unlimited access and teacher support - an extremely valuable resource!
According to our IELTS partner, "Having a good level of English language does not guarantee you a top score in the IELTS examination". However, this Online IELTS Preparation Course has the capability of increasing your IELTS score by at least one band!
The information you will learn is focussed more on how to take the test, rather than on language development, thereby putting you ahead of many other students.

I decided to blog this post after receiving the question: "how do I find a sponsored job in Australia?", on a regular basis from clients and visitors to Nab That Job in Australia!.
Finding an Australian employer to sponsor you is the trickiest part for emigrating to Australia. I have a few recommendations, which are all listed out in detail in my free eGuide, "Mission: Find a Job in Australia", which you can download here.
Do Your Research. You will not often find Australian employers advertising that they are looking for someone to sponsor from overseas. The main reason being,if there is someone with the required skillset in Australia, it is easier for the Australian employer to offer a job to someone who is already established in Australia and can start work immediately - in comparison with employing a foreign national and going through the sponsorship process, the cost involved and the time delay for the sponsored individual to commence employment in Australia.
You are also unlikely to find an Australian employer to sponsor you through the use of a recruitment agency,unless that recruitment agency specifically mentions in their job advertisement that the Australian employer is willing to sponsor the right candidate.
My advice: search out companies in Australia whom you would like to work for. In general, larger companies in Australia are more likely to sponsor people from overseas than the smaller companies, however you should not strike out the smaller companies because some are still willing to sponsore the right person. Wikipedia provides a list of Australian companies. You can also research the Yahoo Companies Directory to find companies in Australia to approach for sponsorship. The advantage of Yahoo is that they have categorised the companies for you to make it easier to find what kind of company you are looking for.
Search out global companies who are based in both your home country and in Australia, and find out whether they offer transfer opportunties - usually global companies do. Even though it might mean working in your home country for a period before an opportunity arises in Australia, it is worth it in the long run, if it means you can emigrate to Australia through that company.
Keep a list of the companies that interest you, and contact them all. I recommend phoning to speak to the manager of the department you would like to work in. If that fails, speak with the Human Resources department. Find out whether they are a company who are willing to sponsor someone from another country with the right skillset. Find out how often they destroy applications /resumes / CVs as well - most companies in Australia hang on to applications for 3-6 months, so to be safe, you should follow up your applications every three months. Keep a record of all of the dates you apply for jobs and speak with the company, for ease of keeping on top of your Australian job applications.
Plan a trip to Australia. Once you have quite a healthy list of companies you would like to work for (no list is too long), and have applied and spoken to all of them, you should plan a trip to Australia where you can meet with each of the employers. If you are unable to set an appointment with every employer, make a plan to visit the company anyway, dropping off your updated resume, and try to get in front of either the department manager, or a Human Resources Manager.
If you are able to, when you visit Australia, line up some volunteering work for some organisations in Australia. Companies that are most likely to accept volunteers are charitable and non-profit organisations. Approach them and set it up before arriving in Australia so you can build it into your plan for your trip to Australia. Also ensure that you are volunteering in the area of your profession. It will be to your advantage if you have experience working in Australia when you are looking for a sponsor, even if it is volunteer employment. www.nonprofitorganisationsaustralia.com has a comprehensive listing of non-profit organisations in Australia by state / region / city or town.
Build your networks. Use social media, join industry groups, make friends in all the right places and put yourself out there. Use your networks and use other people's networks - especially if you already know people in Australia. The more you put yourself out there, the more success you will have in finding an Australian employer who is willing to sponsor you.
Are there any courses or further education in Australia in your industry you can enroll in? If you can get a student visa and go to Australia to study, you are normally entitled to a certain amount of hours per week that you can work. This is an awesome opportunityfor you to network, get your foot in the door and gain valuable Australian experience and qualifications.
Prepare your marketing materials for success. Do your research to ensure that you will be competitive in the Australian job market - that means ensuring your resume / CV is in a successful Australian format, and ensuring you have a high-impact cover letter that will entice the Australian employer to review your resume / CV. You can do a free assessment of your resume to find out how successful you will be applying for jobs in Australia, and what you can do to improve your current resume, here. There are also free Australian cover letter writing tips here.
If you are serious about increasing your chances of finding an employer sponsor in Australia, you should consider having your resume professionally rewritten specifically for the Australian job market. Nab That Job in Australia! is the only Australian Emigration Job Search Strategist who works specifically with overseas nationals to increase their chance of finding an employer sponsor in Australia. The rates of their Australian resume / CV and Australian cover letter writing services are very reasonable and competive, with the option of writing your own resume / CV with the guidance of the eWorkbook, "Australian Resumes: Secrets Revealed". This eWorkbook is available for only AU$22.50, and includes ten free tried and tested high-impact Australian resume / CV templates; as well as a key Job Contacts List for Australia.
If you feel more comfortable having an Australian Emigration Job Search professional to rewrite your resume to a successful Australian CV template, then you can expect to pay between AU$90 and AU$245,depending on your number of years work experience; and between AU$35 and AU$65 for the Australian cover letter writing services. To find out how much your resume would cost to be rewritten, visit Australian Job Search Assistance.
Remember: an estimated 75% of jobs in Australia are not advertised, and are found in the Australian 'hidden job market'. It is essentialto your success that you access this enormous resource of job opportunities in Australia.
I hope you have found this information useful. My suggestion is for you to access the free eGuide, "Mission: Find a Job in Australia" so you can start prerparing your Australian Job Search Strategy, and increase your likelihood of finding a sponsored job in Australia.
Good luck finding sponsored employment in Australia!
