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 🙂
I think it totally depends on the employer. I work for the state government and when I applied to my job I just showed my BVA grant letter and never heard anything else! I’m ongoing/perm employed. I think with the use of VIVO it makes it much easier to check staff are eligible
