What is it about VIC SS? Are they very arbitrary in their decisions?

As of today I have over 8 years of relavent Work experiance in managing huge enterprise level network, VOIP and System infrastucture. I have decided to apply for SS victoria , my previous IELTS expired, so appearing again on 18 feb 2012. I know that NetworK analyst is not in the occupation list for Getting Victoria SS. I need to apply for that too and this time I plan to update my resume to reflect both network and systems experiance. My younger brother is having PR and lives in Melbourn.

Can I apply only with IELTS score ? Will my application will be processed without ACS assessment ?

Looking at my case, can someone please advise if there is any efficient way to apply and get a quick turn around ?

Thank you

Regards
Cvelaga
Hi Cvelaga,
2 questions:

At the time you applied, was 263113 in the SOL in 2009?
Was a CO assigned to you Before it got moved to priority 5?

I am asking this to figure out what could possibly happen in case I apply for 175 and then my occupation goes off list.

Thanks.

Hi expats,

I have few questions regarding vic SS application:

01. Do I have to upload reference letter from employers? Nothing is mentioned about it.

02. In the online application under Q6.1.4, asks to select "Spouse occupation" from a list, but I can't find any suitable one to select there (My spouse is a Software Engineer with BSC in Computer Science and Engineering). What should I select for my spouse occupation?
Should I select any of the following?
Science, Building and Engineering professionals
Science, Engineering and Related Associate
Other Associate Professionals

03. In the chronological CV, they ask to explains any gaps in employment. I left one job on 11th August 20009 and joined in next job in 20 August 2009, i.e. only 8days' gap between these two, not a big deal. I guess I don't have to write explanation for this, am I right?

1. No. nothing of that sort is needed. ACS letter is all they want.
2. I think you can choose a closest match if you dont find any.
3. Nope, that is very normal with most of us.

Hi all,
In the 176 form for victoria, there is a question- "does your spouse plan to work?"
At this moment my wife is a homemaker but going forward it is likely she may take up some work. My question is would it favour me if I answer 'yes' to this question? Thanks.

I choose yes as my wife also is planning to work there but I think that might not impact your application because they don't ask you any docs for dependents planning to work.

Good Luck.

Hi,
Yes,Case officer was assigned before my file was moved to P5. I completed Medical and Police verification too in feb 2010.
When I applied, there was no ANZSCO codes. I applied to ACS for re-evaluating my skills based on anzsco code.

I recieved my latest ielts score, and it was quite disappointing result .. Got 6.5 in writing and Speaking 7 , reading 7 and listering 8. ... Iam not sure, if I want to chase the score for 7 in each band.

Regards
Chandra
