I’m in such situation and i found it very frustrating that on Seek, most emoloyer would ask about your visa status in their questionnaire, and it seems that unless your answer is Citizen/PR most employer will just reject your resume without even taking a look at it

Just wondering if anyone can share their current/past experience looking for permanent job while they are on bridging visa

Thank you 🙂
This will be the case for literally any visa you are on. If you are not a PR/Citizen it's very very difficult to find a job. It's even worst if you're on a bridging visa because to them your PR/820 application could be rejected at any date and it's a waste of HR/training effort to invest in you.

A lot of companies have policies that they will only invite PR/Citizen as well, so they won't even consider you.
