Best way to move out of country and get a job?

Has anybody just left what they were doing and moved to another country? I want to go to Australia. I hate the midwest weather, … and basically everything else. I’m mostly an IT person, but would like to maybe be a mechanic. What are my options?:confused:

One of my cousins did just that a few years back – he now lives in Melbourne and works as an IT consultant. I don’t recall if he had a job lined up first, however; I’d suspect immigration would be easier if you did.
