What citizenship do you have? Australia is pretty much closed due to COVID and it will be difficult if you don’t have citizenship for Canada or US to sponsor you

German citizenship, and I fulfill the criteria for the Australian skilled independent visa. But yeah I’m willing to wait Covid out. Others managed to relocate to Canada, Austalia before so there has to be a way. German passport is not the worst after all. Even Netherlands and Switzerland seem hard although they are within Schengen.

I have the opposite problem. Recruiters cannot stop reaching out to me in the US, contacting me through multiple email addresses, personal phone, work phone, LinkedIn, etc. But I can’t get an interview in Germany to save my life. My guess: it has more to do with your citizenship and visas. My problem is that I’m not German.

I interviewed for an L6 Sr program manager role and was offered an L5 program manager position at amazon. I have 5 YEO and a masters. I saw the L5 role only asks for 2 YEO.
