What were the reason(s) given for a negative assessment?

To my unprofessional eye it looks like your experience is geared more toward the operational / compliance aspects of agri-business - whereas the ANZSCO codes seem more to be more about providing agri-science expert advice to increase productivity etc. to Agronomist / Production Engineers like yourself.

Hi mate.

I got my skill assessment as an agricultural consultant last year. To be honest your tasks suit better production or management positions. You should apply as an agricultural engineer.

This was their reply, "the tasks undertaken are not highly relevant to the ANZSCO tasks
for the nominated occupation"
"A positive assessment of both qualifications and employment is required for a
positive Skills Assessment Outcome."

Thanks Mate for your reply,

I am confused and a bit hesitated, As my Main Experience is in statistics, Surveys & estimations.

Currently am working as Operations Officer in an Agricultural Company.

I have flexibility to provide whatever work experience certificates under the positions that suits the occupation i will choose,

but i dont know if i should go with Vetassess in Agr. Consultant

Or go for Agricultural Engineer/Production Engineer with EA which is totally unknown for me whether it would be as vetassess or as i can see from EA Booklet it looks a bit complicated as well as these occupation are pro-rata now.

It might be worth then finding a more suitable ANZSCO code to nominate as suggested above.
