Welcome to Getting Down Under Monty. 🖐️
You can view the current list of occupations in demand here: Australian Occupations List. If there is an occupation on one of these lists that are aligned with your experience, then yes, you have ticked off the first of many boxes. 👍
Whether your skills are aligned with your occupation is another question and one we can't really answer here. You'll need to have your skills assessed by an Australian skills assessment authority.
If one of the occupations matches your background. Please confirm the ANZSCO code. We can then provide some general guidelines.
All the best
