Metallurgist Jobs & Visa Opportunities in Australia and Canada
Many positions in Australia and Canada are currently unfilled due to a severe shortage of Metallurgists with two or more years of experience. Metallurgical recruiters in these two countries routinely hire metallurgists from other countries for both short and long-term positions. Without a job offer, one can apply for residency in these countries through the popular Skilled Migration and Express Entry programmes.
Metallurgists, Material Technicians, and other specialists are in high demand in this field. In most cases, metallurgists are in higher demand than others, but all types are in high demand.
How do I secure a Residency Visa in Australia or Canada as a Metallurgist?
Without a Job Offer
Did you know that you can apply for residency in Australia and Canada before receiving a job offer? Skilled migration programmes in both Canada and Australia allow you to apply for residency based solely on your professional qualifications. Age, education, and work experience all have an impact on eligibility. Companies will be in a much better position to hire you because they will not have to deal with the onboarding work permit procedure once you have obtained your temporary or permanent residency status. Because you already have working rights in your passport, you may be able to start working right away. Without a doubt, this is the most effective way to begin a new life in these countries.
With a Job Offer
Most applicants who do not meet the skilled migration criteria begin looking for work in their preferred country. In this situation, being "Job Ready" is essential. The vast majority of work visa subclasses require a skills evaluation. When looking for work, a legitimate skills evaluation will add a lot of weight to an applicant's CV.
