Re: Please advise: looking for software job here
There's nothing to stop you applying. Any employer will have to apply for a work permit for you. These are in short supply. Coupled with there not being much of a requirement for ABAP skills here (a lot gets done overseas - India for example), unless you have niche skills or other distinctives that place you ahead of the pack, the chances of you getting a job here are low. Not impossible, but low.
