(...) I'm fine with leaving the firm but am not sure the best way to get into consulting in Australia. I'm exploring in-firm options but don't want to limit myself. I've started applying to jobs without a visa at the moment, but am considering getting a temp working visa and using that. Anyone have any tips, experience, or success with this? Thanks!

If you are under 30 a working holiday visa may be an option to get there and get your foot in the door. That however is no guarantee of sponsorship once your visa ends.

Colleague did the move from AU to Canada few months ago and I'm exploring similar for next year. Maybe we should connect.

For sure, feel free to DM me

I heard companies there mostly look for “Australian” experience, whatever that means.

Lol ... you don’t necessarily need to be sponsored to get a work visa in Australia. You should probably do some proper research first ... https://immi.homeaffairs.gov.au/visas/getting-a-visa/visa-listing/skilled-independent-189/points-tested

Lol ... yes I realize that, but I’d rather not spend $4k and wait over a year and a half to make a move. You should probably clarify before assuming first 😉

Did I need to get an H1B visa stamping if I’m in the US? I was on OPT and got my H1B while on it so ive been in the US since 2014, never left. It’s time to renew my H1B and the questionnaire is asking for my current visa info such as the visa number. I don’t have a visa stamp for my H1B because I was in the US. I do have one for my F1 that is obviously expired. I only have the I-747A for my H1B. Did I not get an H1B stamping when I needed to for 2+ years…?
