I'm an Indonesian citizen but I have lived in Australia for 10 years, spent my high school, university & 2 years post graduate professional work at Australia. I'm looking for a sponsorship to allow me to stay in Australia for at least another 1-2 years before I can get my permanent residency.
So the way I am doing right now is, instead of applying for a job, I am sending my resume & cover letter to companies.
Should I say in my cover letter that I need sponsorship for the job? Or should I just wait until they invite for an interview and let them know face to face?
Personally, I prefer to say it in cover letter in order to avoid them wasting their time (if the company doesn't sponsor employee). But this will blow up my chance of getting the job.
