Job Opportunities in Australia

The services sector dominates the Australian economy, followed by industry & agriculture. Tourism is also big business, especially in big cities and towns. You have good chance of finding a graduate job in major cities like Adelaide, Brisbane, Canberra, Melbourne, Perth, and Sydney, but don't rule out more rural areas. You have better chances of finding work if you have the necessary skills and qualifications.

Graduates at all levels have a lower unemployment rate and better labour market outcomes and pay than non-graduates.

The highest paying industry is mining, resources, and energy, with an average advertised salary of $116,000 per year

Work Visa for international students/graduates

Those between the ages of 18 and 30 can apply for a Working Holiday visa, which allows them to travel and work in the country for up to two years. You can do work on a visa, but you can only work for one employer for six months. You must apply for this visa from your home country, and you must have sufficient funds to support yourself during your stay

Another option is to apply for a temporary graduate visa (subclass 485) that allows international students who studied for at least two years to stay as well as work in Australia after completing their course
