Are you trying to find a sponsor to work in Australia?
Below are 7 tips that can help you find a sponsor to work in Australia.
1 – Be committed to what you do and be the best at it.
There is nothing more appealing to a potential employer than finding a prospect that is committed, passionate and very good at what they do.
By continually striving to achieve higher and by being committed and passionate at what you do, will enable you to be a very attractive prospect to future employers.
2 – Build your ‘Personal Brand’.
When you think of Mercedes-Benz or BMW, words like ‘elegant’, ‘classy’ and ‘expensive’ come to mind.
You need to build a personal brand for yourself so when people hear about you certain adjectives come to mind.
You may not think it, but every action you take, every decision you make, all assist in building your personal brand.
Whether its in your social life, work life, or everyday life.
You want employers to think of words like ‘asset’, ‘hard-working’, ‘successful’ and ‘potential’ when they are considering you.
3 – Choose your end goal and stick with it.
Once you have started your journey of being committed, and continuously trying to be the best at what you do, you need to stick with it.
Nothing good in life comes easy, continue to build your personal brand, up-skill by developing your skills and chase that end goal.
The biggest let-down factor for migrants looking to be sponsored is their lack of direction.
You need to know what you want and work hard to get it.
4 – Do your research – Identify businesses that have sponsored employees.
For many Australian organisations the idea of sponsoring an overseas employee sounds hard, and may not be beneficial.
However on the other end of the spectrum their are thousands of businesses that do sponsor overseas skilled migrants to fill positions in their organisations.
Do your research – find out which organisations employ overseas skilled migrants, research into their business structure, their strategy and mission, align yourself with those values and aspirations.
5 – If you don’t ask you wont get – Contact potential employers that sponsor employees.
When I was working in sales, the number one coaching advice I was given was ‘if you don’t ask you will not get’.
You need to sell your skills, personal brand, and commitment to potential employers to sponsor you.
Contact potential employers, people you may know who have been sponsored, migration agents, anyone that can assist you in getting sponsored.
Remember – A sponsor will not come knocking on your door.
6 – Keep improving your English
Not only is English a requirement by the Department of Immigration & Border Protection for most working visas,it is one of the first things potential employers consider when looking to sponsor an employee.
English can be the deciding factor whether an employer wishes to sponsor you or not.
Always continue improving your English – it can be your key to finding an Australian sponsor.
7 – Always stay positive.
Being positive is the key to happiness, success, and all the great pleasures of life.
You may end up thinking that you will never find a sponsor, however by staying positive it can guarantee you have the best possible chances.
