Dealing with the work permit catch 22 (Cape Town)

I'd like to get some feedback from those of you who have settled in Cape Town from other places and have had to deal with Home Affairs and the whole catch 22 of needing a work permit to apply for a job but not being able to get a work permit until you receive a job offer! I'm married to a citizen which is supposed to make things A LITTLE easier but I'm pulling my hair out after 7 months here and being no closer to solving this issue. How did you all find your first jobs in Cape Town if you moved here without one?
