I spoke to ACT...n some lady picked up the call n she was not at all helpful:confused:(i thought they r helpful)...
she said for CV verification it generally takes 2 days...
she also told not to call again...
she also said that the more time u spend in speak'g to me the more time it will take for verification...

it was rather a rude behaviour..that i never expected from them...:(

Hi Mr India,
I passed out in 2004 April and was involved in a NON IT job for 6 months before getting on to my first IT Job. I now have a total of 7 years of IT experience
Do you think i should be showing up my Non IT Job as well?

Nope...non IT jobs will not be assessed by ACS and the work experience in that period will be clearly mentioned as 'Not Assessable'.

But then sir..there will be a gap of around six months...coz i passed out in April 2004 and uptil Nov 2004 i did a non it job....only after nov 2004 i got into IT Job..

So is it ok to mention that as gap or should i still attach the non it job and let them NOT ACCESS it?

Attach all the employment evidences from day1 to till date. Assessor will decide the relevant experience and will giv you the result.
