Its quite difficult to say whether is harder or easier, each case itīs
different from another. Iīm from south america (3rd world) that should
make things harder for us. Although Im still outside Australia I have
many friends making new lives in Oz, for some of them its really hard
and for some others itīs not.
Quoting them, I would say itīs not a matter of nationality but its how
competitive your english is, and off course what profession are you in.
As an overall, yes, they tend to hire Brits and Americans instead of ot-
hers, but itīs not always like that.
