Overseas jobs for Aussie pilots

G'day everybody!

To put things in a nutshell, I've just completed a 10,000km job-searching drive around most of Australia, and have come back with absolutely no result, minus 150 resumes.

I'm always on the lookout on AFAP, seek.com.au, etc for pilot jobs, but most of the time employers on there want 500+ hours, versus the 260 I have gained.

I have a CPL, MECIR, NVFR and have completed 4 of my ATPL subjects.

My question is...various people have told me that I should look overseas for a job. Is this reasonable advice?

I have no idea as of yet how to search for reliable employers overseas, so if there is someone on here who could suggest a way, it would be ever so greatly appreciated.

It's just frustrating having gotten this far, and not being able to start the career I've spent years aiming towards

Thanks in advance for everyone who is able to help!
