Applying for jobs on PMV 300 visa

Recommended Posts

hi all! anyone here on a 300 visa or was previously holding a 300 visa? how did you go with job applications? does it really discourage potential employers that we are on a temp visa? been applying with no luckūüė™

Thanks in advance.

Yes, you are at a disadvantage, I'm afraid.   Too many companies have rigid rules which say that employees must be permanent residents or citizens, and their managers aren't allowed the latitude to break the rule.

No, they want to avoid employing illegals, and are too lazy to do the work of checking people’s right to work
