My husband and I moved to Adelaide 6 months ago as Permanent Residence under the 190 visa category. We have been looking for full-time jobs in our respective fields since we landed - with no luck. So we expanded our search and tried other industries such as retail and hospitality; again, with no luck. Then we further widened our search and so far, we have only managed to secure part-time jobs as cleaners (this was our last and desperate option) to survive and pay the bills.
Right now, we are barely scraping through. So we planned to move to Melbourne as we know some friends there who could help us out (and also I was offered a job and a few interviews in my line of career but had to decline for obvious reasons).
We called the department of immigration in South Australia to find out if we could get a "release" from this state. However, their answer was that we need haven't tried hard enough to land a job (of course they didn't say that in those words, but that's what was indicated to us).
So, I was wondering if anyone could shed some light and give us some helpful tips on to what to do?
Thanks in advance.
