Default Need assistance for ACS assessment

Hi All,

I am a new member to this forum. I am in the process of preparing all the documents to send it to the ACS. I have overall 6 years of IT experience. Having vendor certifications such as MCSE, MCTS & ITIL v2. My post secondary education comprises of 3 years full time Diploma in Computer Technology from Central Polytechnic College, Chennai, Department of Technical Education, Government of Tamilnadu and then Bachelor of Computer Applications (3 year Distance Education degree) from University of Madras. My current designation is Analyst I - Apps Prog but I am not a programmer. My roles and responsibilities were closely related to Systems Analyst. 3 years experience in the current company. I was promoted from Senior Software Engineer to Analyst I effective April 2010. 1 year experience in previous company with designation as Systems Engineer. Prior to that, 2 years exp with designation as Assistant Technical Coordinator. I can get reference letter from my previous employers but can give only statutory declaration for the roles with the current employer. I need your help for the below.

1) I've come across many forum and looks like System Analyst in Australia is considered a bit high profile which needs min 8 years exp? I am stuck to prepare my CV. Can anyone please send me your generic roles of Systems Analyst masking your company and other details?

2) I don't have the offer letter of the first employer but I have the relieving letter which has designation and joining date. I can get a reference letter from one of the current employee there. Will this be enough for ACS or the offer or appointment letter is mandatory?

3) Any idea will I get the 15 points for my qualification under the new points system effective from July 2011? Assuming I get positive assessment from ACS

Appreciate your answers for me as many of you have been very helpful to all others in this forum.

Thanks very much

Regards

ssjs

Hi,

Find below the generic job duties/responsibilities for a Systems Analyst from ACS' perspective:
  • Analyzing problems in software development and guiding the rectification of faults in programs
  • Analyzing software requirements and defining program parameters and specifications
  • Undertaking analysis of current software products and determining approaches which will improve their user interface, performance and integrity
  • Leading team members and third parties in client organisations in the integration of technological methodologies and components of projects
  • Ensuring and being accountable for the technical integrity of the design in accordance with the client’s requirements
  • Ensuring that programs meet marketing/user requirements by testing and monitoring initial field use and problems
  • Guiding the preparation of software manuals and guides
  • Improving the interface between systems users, the operating system and applications software
  • Conducting user requirements analysis to match customer needs to company products and services
  • Assisting the sales force with pre-sales activity such as proposal preparation, systems demonstrations and presentations, particularly in relation to larger and more important clients.


armandra!

1. I would suggest go with Software Engineer. From this forum I see software engineers are in better demand.
2. Reference letter should be fine. more relevent document you submit, lesser questions would come from ACS. If there is a joining letter (or even a mail) send across.
3. As per new rule, Degree with honors will get 15 points. Not, sure how they would interprete it. Some one who has an distant education degree and applied before would be of better help.

All the best!
