Default Express Entry : Job bank & PNP Help

Hi all,

After enough research on CIC, I am all set to go for EE for FSW program and my skills are software sales : 6221 B Business Dev & Marketing: 4163 A.

1. on the point calculator i found, it around 330 adding 7 band on ielts. Can u tell me if this is fine to get picked from the pool for ITA. (I am good for FSW points 67 ).

2. also, wanted to know if anyone has got job offer or PNP while placed in Pool. Please share your thoughts on that.

3. Anyone can also share their view on Cost of living per person in Toronto (as see good opportunities are there) and how is life for Indian there.


Any more info would be really appreciated here and please reply asap as I am excited to move forward.

Thanks
AJ

Generally, if your CRS is less than about 450, you'll likely not qualify for an ITA. The Express Entry program has been open for a year now and the lowest CRS ranking score drawn has been 450, and no lower.

2. also, wanted to know if anyone has got job offer or PNP while placed in Pool. Please share your thoughts on that.

It is possible to get a PNP or a job offer while in the pool... some people apply for PNP at the same time as they enter the Express Entry pool so that if they receive a Provincial Nomination, their Express Entry profile has already been set up and the PNP program can add the necessary information to the recipient's profile.

As for a job offer, it is possible for someone to secure a job offer from the Job Bank. In order to access the Job Bank, one must have an active Express Entry profile.



3. Anyone can also share their view on Cost of living per person in Toronto (as see good opportunities are there) and how is life for Indian there.

Have a look at this for a comparison

Any more info would be really appreciated here and please reply asap as I am excited to move forward.

I don't know that you are "qualified" enough to come to Canada with a CRS ranking of 330. You are more than welcome to apply for Express Entry but will have to improve your score by about 125 points or more if you hope to be able to proceed to the next step (receiving an Invitation to Apply to come to Canada)..

You can try to add your wife's information to get more points but, as I said earlier, unless you can get a CRS ranking of >450,* I wouldn't hold out any hope of being selected to receive an ITA if your total CRS ranking (either with or without your spouse's points) is less than that.


*You can get 600 points added to your CRS ranking score by securing yourself either a valid job offer (easiest way is to apply through the Job Bank in the Express Entry application) or a Provincial Nomination (apply directly to the specific province in which you wish to live and work, as there is no blanket application for the entire country).

Beyond securing either of those two things, you have no other "quick fix" options that would give you a sufficient number of points to qualify you to receive an ITA.

I have got the idea about the points.

Another confusion here:

If i show I am married and do not take wife with me as of now. Under which process I can get her there once I am settled in Canada. How much time this process is going to take.

Any measure I can take to minimize the time for her to join me there post I landed.


I have 5+ years experience in sales and marketing, what are the chances people get from from Jobbank...do you have any say on this?

I don't know how long it will take, as I am not familiar with that aspect of immigration law (if I were to return to Canada with my husband, I would be returning under the Family Class route, which is different than the Express Entry/FSWP route).

I would consult the CIC website, as they're the only ones who can give you a definitive answer, as they are the ones who process all immigration and visa applications.

I also cannot say what your chances of finding a job are like as it would completely depend on a) what part of the country you are looking to find work in; b) what the employment situation in that area is like; c) what skill set is being sought; d) what skills you have to offer (are you a specialist in certain areas of software sales and marketing or is your experience just general sales/marketing; do you have any special training etc).... in other words, there are too many variables to be able to give you a definitive answer.

This isn't anywhere close to the lowest number thus far and it is highly doubtful that the total will ever drop this low.

Cost of living varies by person and depends on their lifestyle. And why wuold life for an Indian be any different than life for anyone else?

Improving that score isn't going to get you enough points.
