Default Which occupation to opt for - 'ICT System Test Engineer' or 'Software Tester'

Hi All,

I am currently working in QA and have over 6 years of QA experience.

I will be applying for ACS skills assessment this week. Wanted some guidance on the following:

1. Should i apply for occupation as - 'ICT System Test Engineer' or for 'Software Tester'?
2. I will be applying for state sponsorship and checked the occupation availability of the above two in all states:
- South Australia and ACT : Has places for ICT System Test Engineer
- Victoria : Has places for Software Tester

Which of the above states are best to move to? i suppose South Australia and ACT as i have heard that rejection rate for Victoria is too high.

Moreover as per the occupation details, ICT System Test Engineer is more suited to my interest and what i do in my current job.

Help much appreciated!!
