Could someone please comment on how the job market in Australia and New Zealand is for a java devloper/sr. developer/architect etc ? A realistic evaluation. The job sites are a waste of time as they never really indicate how the market out there is.
Also would someone comment on if Australia would be a better place than New Zealand primarily since it is bigger in size than New Zealand and hence more number of jobs ? I heard the tax rates are more or less the same. So the money one makes is almost similar in both the countries ?
I am at a crossroad where I want to leave the US for a life in either of those two countries, so any advice appreciated. If it helps, I have over 9 years of experience in various java related open source technologies and have performed in every role below the CTO. My IELTS result says that I have excellent communication skills.
