Default A must to have job offer to secure SMC?

Hi, I have been working for 10 years in IT industry. I just wonder is it a must to have a job offer from NZ employer in order my EOI get selected? Without job offer, my point is less than 140.

Please advise..

Thanks.
Nelson

No it isn't a must that a person has a job offer for EOI to get selected.
For the younger generation who have less experience and may not have a partner (to get the added partner points), they could be lacking in points so need a job offer to ensure the EOI has enough to get selected.
Less than 140 and without a job offer you are unlikely to be selected.

I have no idea as I do not know your individual credentials and if you could qualify for partner points and / or bonus points associated with skills, experience and a qualification in an are of absolute skill shortage.
