Applying for jobs with pending work permit/PR application

Hi all,

I have applied for my PR and my application is still pending. In the mean time, I have also applied for a spouse open work permit (as my wife is working in Toronto), which will take a month or so to arrive.

I am applying for positions in Toronto, and was curious to know if employers will entertain me given that I do not have work authorization yet, but will have it soon.

Thanks in advance!
