Not everyone who gets a WHV, intends to do bar work or fruit picking
Understood, however in current economical climate, that’s a pipe dream by many on WHVs. Plenty of local people, with local contacts, who’ve spent years in mines earning big bucks, only to see end of mining boom and working now smaller jobs waiting for upturn. My question is, how do you compare? Australia is very much “who do you know” and everyone knows someone who knows someone and a resident or citizen will always come first as employers don’t have to pay nothing. All the luck for trying, just pointing the facts. WHV USED to be a door in, it hasn’t been in years.

If engineers weren't wanted in Australia, they wouldn't be on the MLTSSL. Therefore, there is clearly a requirement for engineers in Australia regardless of the visa you are on. Yes the WHV route is risky, but I personally know people who have recently been offered sponsorship on a WHV. I went for an interview today, and we spoke about sponsorship after 6 months. It is certainly possible

but my point being, if you want PR, you go for skilled migration, it’s on the list for a reason. What you want is sponsoring, company has to fork out, Versus you have to fork out for skills assessment, visa etc. Think about it, will company

fork out with plenty of locals (citizens and PRs) around?

Bear in mind that person is not in Perth. Perth is very much a small, "who you know, not what you know" place where there's a glut of mining professionals/trades who are all looking for work after they've been laid off. Why would an employer who doesn't know you from a bar of soap hire you, on a WHV where you can only work there for 6 month max and have no hope of being permanent, over his brother's mate's son who's a citizen and won't require sponsorship?
