Default moving to Australia

hie everyone. I am a recent BSc majoring in Geology and Geography graduate who is currently pursuing BSc Honours in Geology majoring with structural geology. Is it possible to get an Australian VISA to work there when you are a recent graduate with no working exprerience. Looking forward to your help.

You can get a working holiday visa which will allow you to work and live in Australia for 12 months. But, that is all. Anything longer term will require three years work experience.

thank you for the information.
So is it easy to get a holiday visa and later change to another visa after that year of stay and working there in Australia

It is if you qualify for a visa.

Easy? No, not unless you qualify for a visa.

No. You would still need to pass a skills assessment which would still require the experience. I would also add, that while things have picked up in Australia for geologists, there are still a fair number unemployed- it was near 50% when we left, but it is still about one in ten. Graduates are finding it very hard to get work.

If you’re coming on WHV, expect bar work, fruit picking. I would not expect to pick up work in your graduate field. You’re fighting agains hundreds of local graduates with local knowledge and local contacts. And no, WHV will not lead to permanent visa.

Where are graduate geologists finding it hard to get work? Mining? Perth? This is where you found your struggles?

Non mining related geology on the east coast can't find enough graduates

Also if you are thinking about a WHV remember that it has a work limitation, maximum 6 months with any one employer...so it would not be an appropriate visa for a graduate role.
