    Seems promising for me! I would fall into the banking/financial services and accounting sector. In three years I’ll be finished my Accounting and Finance course. I already want to move! Would I need a certain amount of experience in my home country before I would be considered for employment in Australia though? Or could I just go over and apply for a graduate position? :-)
