However, most companies and recruitment agencies are turning me down saying that I need to be a PR or an Australian Citizen for some jobs. I think this is ridiculous! I am qualified and experienced like every one else and it's silly to think that the Australia Govt is issuing spouse visas but it's pointless if people like me can't work!

Is anyone else going through a similar problem like me? Please share your experience.

Same here Roshni,

I have been here in Australia for 9 months,used to be working as admin assistant in a perfume manufacturing Dubai for 3 years before I came here.Since Sept 2013,i have been looking online and in person for job,even at maccas!Until now no luck at all.Applied for Kmart in person yesterday and I hope this time they will give me a chance.
