Hi All,

I am having 7 years of experience in IT, but my education background is Mechanical. Will it fetch any points when applied for 189 class. If not can i apply with 3 years of Mechanical experience.

Please some one suggest how to proceed.

Thanks

Points for qualifications can be in any subject, so you may be able to claim points even if you nominate an IT occupation.

You would need to compare the skills assessment requirements for your IT occupation vs. the requirements for a Mechanical occupation, but you may find you end up with more points under Mechanical.

Hi,

Currently I am in IT working from 2010 to present.

I was passed out in 2009 and worked for 1 year as Mechanical Engineer, later moved to IT.

If I were in your shoes, I will not bother much to exclude that 1 year for Skill assessment as its negligible and more importantly not relevant to ANZSCO your majority of experience constitutes. Lastly, ACS deducts 2 years in case your experience isn't closely related to occupation. And so with the degree as its not accounting to IT. Considering that you may ponder selecting correct ANZSCO code and check how many points it may contribute. These are my views and seniors/experience folks may correct me If I am wrong.
