Hello Everyone,

I am also facing same problem to find a job under spouse visa (subclass 309). Not even considering my application or getting an interview. Does anyone had any luck in getting a job in Aus under spouse visa ??

I am not sure but doesn't there need to be a really valid reason for a visa to just be cancelled out of the blue? Wouldn't someone have to break the (immigration/labour or otherwise) law? Or shouldn't there at least be severe circumstances? Because to be fair anyone could get arrested at any time for any crime and that can also terminate their employment.
Yes but it does not change much. All these visas (student, sponsorship 457 etc) are temporary. You don't even need to get them cancelled - they just expire and upon their expiry the employee needs to either apply for a new one or go back home.

From employer's perspective it does not really matter what an employee needs to do to get their visa cancelled. What counts is that it is temporary - not permanent. Hence the increased risk levels.

just my thoughts and after 3 months of looking and hearing "your visa is not what we are looking for" it is becoming personal and depressing... feeling very depressed.......
Don't look for jobs labeled as "full time" or "poart time" - they are unreachable unless you are a PR or a citizen. Apply for "Casual" or "temporary", possibly "contract" - this is where your chance is. You will avoid frustration which I also went through when I moved to Australia and got rejected numerous times for almost 6 months due to being a student visa holder.

I get the idea from this thread that the difficulty to find a job is about employers worrying about you possibly leaving, and so is mostly for those on the temporary partner visa, and that once you have the permanent visa you will have an equal chance- am I correct?

Permanent visa and local experience and references will make you equal with everyone else.

I am currently in Australia and have been applying for jobs. I am a bit confused: As a current 820 holder, I'm considered as a "TR" correct? How do I respond to enquires of "Citizen/PR vs current work/student visa" 820 doesn't fall into either category?

Also many of the application forms require me to input the visa expiry date, for the 820 it is indefinite (until a decision as been reached on the outstanding application for Partner visa). So what to do in that situation?

Also should I be using my name as listed in Passport/visa grant letter - even through I now go by my married name? I still don't know how or why the Immigration office hasn't changed/updated my last name, even through I provided evidence of the name change (on marriage certificate).

Insight/help appreciated.

Hi, i was in a similar position and found that only smaller companies will be willing to take you in. It is rather ridiculous given that they don't look further beyond your visa label when considering.
