Relocating to Austin, with a job

Hi everyone,

I'm an Australian who is looking to relocate to Austin, towards the end of this year. Of course, due to visa restrictions, in order to live and work in the states, I need to be working in a job that requires my degree to be of use.

I will be a graduate journalist after completing my Bachelor of Communications in Journalism and Public Relations.

Does anyone have any information about jobs and opportunities that might be available in that field?
Any contacts I could pursue to find out finer details, like applying for jobs while being in Australia still, or companies looking for media/journalism interns that would support an international worker on a visa?

I also have extensive administrative skills having worked with the state Police for the last four years, so I can bring some great law, and office experience to the table.

I'm very keen to learn and try anything at the moment, as living and working in the US (Austin specific) has been a dream for quite some time.

Thanks in advance everyone!
