Default Vetassess Assessment - Points Test Advice

Hi Folks,

This is my first post here though I have been keenly following this superbly active forum and it's amazing to see how people here are so helpful and forthcoming

I'm planning to get skill assessment done from Vetassess for Marketing Specialist and planning to submit my documents soon.

Below is a quick brief on my qualification and employment background year wise for clarity:

April 2004 - Attained Bachelors' Degree
June 2005 - May 2006: Work Experience in Company A
June 2006 - April 2008: Post Graduate Diploma in Marketing Management
June 2008 - Present (4 years, 5 months): Work Experience in Company B

Total work experience in last 10 years: 5 years, 5 months

As per my understanding we need a total of 5 years of work experience to gain 10 points in the points system. However, the first year of my employment was not within the last 5 years. and it seems, Vetassess only takes into consideration work exp in the last 5 years.

I need to know if it's compulsory for me to apply for Points Test Advice to consider work exp in the last 10 years. Or all my years of work exp will be considered even without points test advice.

Please help me with this as I'm not getting clear info anywhere else!

Hi Vid,

I recently did a VETASSESS skills assessment. If you only go for the skills assessment without points test advise it will only go 5 years back and generally only show your qualification institution and one employment.

On the points test advisory letter they go 10 years back and list all relevant employments. Apparently the points test advisory letter is not obligatory by DIAC, but as far as I understand it could be requested and I believe it makes it a bit easier.
You could try doing it without it and provide all backup to DIAC directly, but it would be safer with the letter.

Just be careful as VETASSESS can be very closed minded. My first skills assessment failed as they did not accept my employment as highly relevant to the nominated occupation.
Read the ANZSCO description carefully and provide a statutory declaration for each employment describing your main tasks.

All the best with it,

Frank

Thank you so much Frank...this was really helpful. Will go ahead with Points Test Advice to be on the safer side

For my past employment, I'm providing Employer reference from the department head which lists my responsibilities along with appointment letter, confirmation letter, 2-3 pay slips and bank statement. Do i still need to provide Stat Declaration for past employment?

Since it'll be tricky asking for reference from the current company, I'm planning to give a Stat Declaration along with other supporting employment docs like the ones mentioned above.

Could you please help me with the Stat Declaration format that you provided and also the resume format.

Also, would help with the list of docs that you shared with Vetassess and any specific requirement that they had. There are a lot of threads for ACS but couldn't find many for Vetassess. Therefore, any suggestion would be welcome since you've gone through the entire process.

I'm in the process of collating all my docs and don't want to miss out anything

Thanks a lot!!

hi everyone,
i gave in my vetasses documents in november, they acknowledged having received everything on 20th december. since then my status has been 'processing' - assuming the rumoured 2 weeks off they take during the christmas/new year period that would be somewhere between 10-11 weeks!

Today after receiving positive result not happy ...

i have total 10 years of exp -

first employment is 2.8 years.. for this vetassess has given positivie assessment ..since for claiming points i need 3 yrs ...so i cant claim 5 points for this too.

but for the next employments vetassess has given,,

The tasks undertaken are not closely related to the ANZSCO tasks for the nominated occupation

these are serious integrity concerns about the employment claims.. hence i am not getting any points for this..

With this being the case, can i submit EOI. With the above results i am not reaching 60 .. is it compulsory to have points advice test..

i need your valuable advice please help..

Without this 5 points, how much do you score. If you score 55, then you can go for State Sponsorship. Otherwise, you need to check with an agent as which job code should you apply which matches with major portion of your experience. Dont go for Points advise test, just need to pick the right code.

Hey there!

I want to apply under subclass 190 SA SS for ANZSCO 225212 ICT Business Development Manager.(can do that only after july2014 once the ceiling resets)

I have exactly 2 years and one month of experience working as IT BDM from my current job.

As I understand it VETASSESS would need atleast 1 year experience to give me a positive assessment and since I have 3 years BBA degree and an MSc in IT Management degree done in 1 year from the UK, I hope I'll get a +ve outcome from them.

Also then to be eligible to apply for South Australia State Sponsorship, I'd need to show atleast one year of work experience.

Now I want to understand is it safe to apply under this ANZSCO code with just 2 years of overall experience!?

Cheers,
G
