Express Entry hints

G'Day!

I hope everyone is doing great :)

I'm an Australian working in software development and I'm considering living and working in Canada. I recently discovered Express Entry and now I'm at the point of finding-out how to get all those elusive points in CSR....

I did some research and I have good understanding what I should do, but I also noticed that to get extra points I need to consider a high IELTS score, applying for PNP, etc...

I would appreciate if anyone can provide me with hints and pointers on how to get points and make it a smooth experience....

About me:

I have 12+ years of experience in software development. (Bachelor of science in computing)
- Married with no kids.
- 35 years olds.
- A masters programme candidate. (Degree not awarded yet)

Cheers

About me + my ECA

Hello Again!

About me: I'm a mid-30s married man and I started working on my EE lately.

I work in IT and I have over 12 years of experience in this field with Australian and overseas experience.

Lately I applied for an ECA from World Education Services WES and I received the latter recently. It was a smooth experience.

Today I'm registering for a General Training IELTS exams....

Cheers

two short points to cosnider:

1- Get CLB9 score on all IELTS bands which If you are a native speaker should be a problem. This alone should get you way ahead of everyone in the pool with more than 450-500 points.
2- Look for PNP at Ontario and Alberta as both are taking in alot of IT professionals.

Goodluck!

- My IELTS test on the 8th (speaking) and the 9th of September .... My target is CLB9+
- I'm not researching CIPS because it was mentioned on the SINP web pages for people working in IT.

Goodluck on IETLS exam.

Keep looking out for nominations as provinces usually open applicants for hours and then close

Hey mate.... I appreciate your replies... They are really helpful..... How do I get a nomination as I'm researching this topic now and I'm a bit lost...

IELTS is my next step to be in the EE pool... But not sure what's afterwards.


Cheers

405 ...

Cheers mate...
Get CLB9 on your next exam (7 points on each band) and you will receive extra 50 points , that should get you on the top 15% of the current pool and your ITA will be inevitable .

@yiso91 Cheers mate!

When I used the CSR tool I entered CLB9 as my english language level ... (i.e. 7 all bands)

I received 405 ....

What do you think?

Well , then you definitely need nomination or a job offer to get a chance for ITA ..current cutoff are too high and it wont go 40 points at time soon.

Try to work your English to CLB9 .. it's your only possible option since job offers or nominations are always harder to get by

Better go and speak to either association and ask if they can certify your experience.

I received a reply from an SINP official stating that it's possible to apply for the programme without licensure which will put your application on hold
