It depends on what jobs you're applying to, but in some industries you could literally find a job within a week of being here, and then start the very next day after you get hired... More

It entirely depends on the kindof job you're applying for, your situation, qualifications, application, presenation, interview etc. You can't just generally estimate it...different for everyone.

It very much depends upon what you want to do, there are plenty of jobs out there, you can get a job in a matter of days if you wanted to, it may not necessarily be exactly what you want to do but there's nothing stopping you from taking one of these jobs and earning money whilst searching for the job you really want.

If you're prepared to look, and prepared to do anything, you can get one immediately - just look around town - somebody wants something, or someone, all the time. Ask,Ask,Ask.
