Nab That Job in Australia!

Do I have an Australian Visa or am I already living in Australia?

Yes

Have I applied for an Australian visa or residency?

No

Do I require sponsorship?

No

What is my biggest challenge with finding employment in Australia?

I have been trying for a job from back in India, but I have not got a single interview call. Now I am planning to come to Sydney in first week of September for 10 to 12 days (due to financial constraint). I hope to get a job within this period or else I will have to go back and come again only after improving my financial position.

Cut and paste your resume below for assessment and consideration for Australian employment. We recommend removing your contact details and the contact details of your referees if you wish to protect yours and your referees' privacy.
