How Easy is it to Get a Job in Australia?.

Some people say that getting a job is quite easy in Australia, but some others say it is very hard.  Which ones are correct?

The simple answer is:  BOTH.  Some find it easy, some find it very hard, and some find it impossible.

If you are skilled in a profession or trade where there are not enough skilled people, then getting a job can be quite easy.  Some companies will even pay removal costs and high bonuses to get you to work for them.


Not everyone is that lucky.
