      There are quite a few chef jobs out here, alot depends on where you want to be living.

      You can try and line up a few chats/interviews before you get here.

      Good luck,

      Give them flight details, and dates when using a covering letter. Once they know your comming you get a better response.;)

      Start applying but dont be surprised if they dont jump to make offers. What can they say except no thanks, you might be lucky.

      Send out as many e-mails as you can, we sent out about 60 e-mails and had 4 positive ones back. Keeping my fingers crossed you get OAA. xx

      Chef jobs - you need to be here and willing to do trials - trawl around places/hand out resumes, dont go during service hours (12-2.30 & 6-9) - know that things are differnt here - it was like going back to 1990 for me...and the introduction of the food safety act - bigger places tend to be better/more regulated/procedures in place than smaller operations etc.

      IME if you go for a job and get the interview and want the job you have to do the chasing - not wait for them to call you back...show interest above and beyond just attending the interview.
      and if for some reason you cant make or dont want the interview let the headchef/boss know you wont be going - politeness but also hospitality is a very small world here and they all talk to each other!
