I had no issues getting a permanent job on my bridging visa. However, I'm a teacher and our school was in desperate need. The department of education here in WA seems to be much better about that sort of thing. I know of several others (teachers and even a school nurse) who were able to gain permanent positions while waiting on resident visas. I guess it all depends on the type of employment, the agency and the location. And as J&E stated, how many qualified applicants they have. Best of luck to you!
