Default Pre-Sales Consultant / Account Manager

Hi, looking to relocate to Queensland in the next year or so. Finding it difficult finding jobs as all are Aus residents only. Catch 22.

Anyway, presently working as a Pre-Sales IT Consultant and Account Manager and have over 15 years experience. Can someone tell me what qualifications Australian firms would require to even consider me? I'm presently doing my Prince2 but is that reconised there or do they prefer ISEB or some other cert?

Any help appreciated.

Most employers will prefer to employ somebody locally unless you have a specific skill/speciality thats in very short supply and with the GFC this is less likely. So being here is really the best way and its very very difficult but not impossible to do it from out of country.

You should also look in your area of technical/market specialty (and state it) IT could be almost anything (software/hardware/infrastructure/government/private). Most recruiters are likely to ignore those who don't have work rights (it makes it difficult for them to get there commission) you are probably better off applying to the big employers directly.

Probably the best way if you have the skills is apply for a skilled independent visa and look at the governments immigration site. Good Luck....

Are you limited to QLD? I'd have thought Sydney and Melbourne would have more options. (Geeky husband works in pre-sales.)

And it seems you are also a 3rd level connection to me on LinkedIn, ukkiwi through 2 people I know from very different worlds, countries and eras too.

The world is indeed very small.
