I also have a similar concern;
I am a marketing a sales manager with over 15 years of progressive management experience in sales and marketing. Now I am in process of applying for 190 visa in the capacity of Sales and Marketing Manager 131112 .
I have received positive work experience assessment from AIM, however, in the assessment AIM has accepted my current working experience of about 3 years and 8 months as a senior functional manager role. Other than that I have a progressive management experience of over 15 years in the sales and marketing domain which although does not fit in with the AIM criteria but is part of my career in the same field.
The question I have is, will DIBP consider my whole career experience or only the experience of senior function manager as assessed by AIM while evaluating for experience assigning skillselect points if I receive invitation to apply from SA?
