Hi Guys,

I'm planning to file Australia PR but confused which category should I apply for?

My profile is as below:

- Master of Computer Application (3 year recognized degree)
- Bachelor of Computer Application (3 year recognized degree)

Work Experience:
- 9 years of experience in IT industry.
- I've worked for 2 companies. In my last company my designations were: Associate Software Engineer, Software Engineer, Sr. Software Engineer and then Project Lead
- In the current company my designation is: Sr. Consultant
- With my current company, I've a vliad 457 visa as ICT Business Analyst and designation as Sr. Consultant. I worked in Australia for 5 months from May 2012 to Sept 2012. Currently I'm in India with the same company.

In all these years I had a mixed profile of Development & Testing/QA. However I want to apply for Australian PR in "Software Engineer" category.
None of my experience letters/documents explicitly mention "Testing" or "QA" although I've worked equally on Testing/QA profile as on Software Engineer profile.

- Do you see any issues or problems in this w.r.t. Skill Assessment?
- Can ACS cross verify my roles & responsibilities so minutely from the companies I've worked for?
- Will working in QA/Testing can affect my skill assessment as a Software Engineer?

Any advice will be highly appreciated.

The PDFs available at ACS' website have PDF files with detailed description for each ANZCO code, which you should use to decide which category to choose from.
