For expatriates in Australia, it is not easy to get a job unless you are capable of speaking fluent English and specified skills. Usually, in Australia, if you have qualifications and experience regarding accountancy and medicine, which are in great demand locally, then the job opportunities are plentiful for you. Other jobs such as cook, hair stylist, plumber are demanded as well (If you plan to become immigrant, then it is best to check out which one earns more career points for your immigration).
Australia government has rigid regulations towards employees, which means you have to be well-equipped to get the good job opportunities. First it is the language barrier, Australia government requires employees should have certain English skills. For nurse or other jobs, the standard is higher. This is not an easy task for expatriates in Australia.
