It's not as much as you think it is. Once you get started it starts flowing.

You can use a professional service for guidance, review, coaching, feedback before submission, but never use a service to write it for you, it's an accident waiting to happen !

Thanks. It's true that I also feel a sense of accomplishment in doing it myself, something like "Well, I AM the engineer I claim to be, this is just another project as usual! I can and shall do it myself"!

Actually what I am more worried about are the supporting documents. For instance:
- I am travelling at the moment and I have most of the scans of my payslips... but all in black and white, where EA only accepts colour...
- In my country, official tax assessments only display the amount earned, not the employer's name, so I can't use those as any kind of proof
- I'm not sure if my annual evaluation reports by my manager are "good enough" as they are full of acronyms and not totally understandable for an external person
- The official retirement contributions document stating all my past employers is an online-generated, black and white document. Although it is the original document it really looks like a black and white scan and I'm afraid it will be refused
- In my past 10 years bank statements, 3 different company names appear because my initial company has been bought 2 times by bigger companies, so it looks weird and I'm not sure how to justify this.

Not mentioning that I need to get in touch with my employer to ask for specific reference letters with all the information about my activities, but the staff has changed over the years.

So all in all this is where I am right now. I have a lot of documents but I feel that none of them will be accepted, and I'm terrified to be rejected straight away without a chance of resubmitting, or something like this.

By the way I am happy to read any feedback on this. Does EA ask for more documents, or let you a chance to rewrite and resubmit a career episode if the outcome is negative?

Thanks for reading

enployment assessment is not a must and is optional.
DIBP would conduct there own verifications if they need to.
for engineering occupations employment assessment is an optional service offered by EA and is not compulsory

well it might reduce chances of employment verification from DIBP side but it is an assumption and not a guarantee tbh.
Its a positive thing to have it sorted in one application.
