Which IT related jobs are best for getting permanent residency?
First of all, I know that it is very difficult to get permanent residency in Australia. However, I also know that it's possible to have sponsorship from your employer and apply for permanent residency. So I'm willing to try my best. Now I'm only starting out in an Australian university as an International student. I have an Information Technology background so that is my preferred course but my university also offers courses in Software Engineering and Business Informatics. I'm just wondering which course to study so I'll be able to get a job that has the most demand in Australia and I can have a higher chance of getting permanent residency. Basically, the software engineering course makes you a programmer/developer, the business informatics course gives you jobs related to the business side of IT like project managers and the "IT" course is a mix of both software and business. Also, I have interest in all three courses as they are kind of related so I'm just focusing on future outcomes.

There are several more changes of the profession list before you will be able to apply. There will also be a change in federal government. There is absolutely no way of predicting whether anything in IT will be on the PR profession list.
