How to secure an IT job in Australia

Completing study and finding employment is a challenge to new migrants seeking a new life in Australia. It can take you 5 to 6 years to complete your degree commencing at a language school, then proceeding to university, and then undertaking postgraduate studies. Following this, you are required to spend several years and of course a lot of money to obtain a Permanent Residency (PR) in Australia.

Most people would think that after obtaining the PR it would be easy to find a satisfying job in Australia given they have a university degree. In reality most people end up working as labourers in places such as factories, restaurants and gas stations. If one then looks back at their working life it may seem as a waste of many years without achieving anything substantial.

The Australian social system has narrowed the gap between the rich and the poor. Therefore it’s easy to make a living but it can be very difficult to earn a high salary in Australia. It’s still many people’s dream to obtain a highly paid job in Australia. The IT industry is one field that gives you the opportunity to fulfil such a dream. If one takes a look at job advertisements online in positions such as Network Engineering, Senior System Support, Database Administrator and IT Specialist with salaries ranging from $100K to over $150K offered.

ITIC has helped hundreds of international students to obtain highly paid positions in the IT industry. Some have obtained employment in International firms such as IBM, Telstra, HP, EDS, Cisco, Fujitsu and Westpac Bank. Our goal is to continue to help more and more students find highly paid jobs.


Getting into the IT industry is the challenge we face. Although an IT Degree and Industry Certifications will open doors for you, the key to success is finding the right direction and gaining real hands-on experience. In Australia local work experience is essential and this is particularly true for the IT industry. ITIC will act as your professional career consultant providing you with local work experience, creating job opportunities to reach your IT dream career.

A high-salary IT job is not just something you do for a living, it also allows you utilise your professional skill and to create a solid foundation for future career development even if you decide to go back to your home country. Obtaining a degree is not sufficient to build a fine career either here, or in your home country. Practical work experience in Australia with qualifications will help you build a successful career anywhere in the world.

For the past 10 years, ITIC has helped hundreds of students enter the IT industry. Many of them have successfully obtained jobs with salaries exceeding $100K. ITIC offers the best learning environment for anyone who would like to start their career in the IT industry. ITIC has a group of IT experts and IT professionals with many years of experience in the industry. They will share their experience with you and help to motivate you.
