I'm from Europe, I'll be done with college next year and I've always wanted to live in the U. S or Canada. I'd be open to Australia or New Zealand as well.
But the problem is the same everywhere. Visa! I don't know how people ever move overseas. Seems impossible to me. You have to get a job obviously to make a living and also to get work visa, but most companies won't even interview if you don't have residency.
Those that do are often big names like google or microsoft and while I will apply, chances of landing a job there are slim. So a lot of people have been saying to just go over there on tourist visa and get some fast food job. And once you got visa to work apply for the kind of jobs you want
And honestly I'm not sure I'd consider that. On the one hand I DO want to move there I also DO have a good degree and an offer for a well paying job here. It'd be downgrading by a bit. And I've worked thsoe jobs in college. HATED it. So I don't know would you do it? Do you think it's worth it?

If you are wanting to live in another country, know that sometimes you have to compromise. Working in a fast food job is not the problem itself - it is a job like any other - but, as you said you have a degree and hate this kind of job, you should look for something closer to your area.
Going to another country as a tourist and working is usually illegal in those countries you mentioned. Do you just want to have a temporary international experience or are you plans to move there for good?
Have you considered doing a post-graduate course there? If you have the money, chances are a lot better than just trying to get overseas job interviews. Decide for your country and set it as a goal. Then, thouroughly study their Visa processes for your case (studies or skilled worker).
And please remember: Always do it legally! If you want to move and relocate, do it walking through the front door, dear, not sneaking though the backdoor. If you're an illegal immigrant, everything is worse and, in the end, you may be deported and lose everything you had conquered.1
