Finding work for DP holder (why it is hard?)

Postby samgeh123 » Wed, 03 Apr 2019 10:34 pm

Hi all,

Got to know that finding work for DP holder is bit tough. All the recruiters and opportunities are looking for PR and citizens. Thought that getting a DP holder is not that hard considering EP or SP as HR doesn’t need to care about quota/levy or any and just need to apply for a LOC. Still why this is not preferred much?

The main reason is if the sponsor loses their EP, the the employer of the LoC holder loses their employee as well. So it's a bit of a gamble for the employer to spend money and time training a person who might lose their LoC through no fault of their own but the fault of the sponsor or sponsor's employer.
