    Good Day!

    Thank you for your reply.

    I want to seek your valuable inputs regarding on this matter.

    Do I need to download all of my payslips from 2007 up to the present?
    However, there is a limit regarding the maximum data to be uploaded?
    I worked only with the same company for more than a decade already.

    Is it allowed that my cdr episodes consist of the following duration? I am hoping to claim the
    maximum points with regards to work experience.
    Cdr 1 - Apr 2008
    Cdr 2 - 2014
    Cdr 3 - 2016

    How to acquire HDMF contributions in the Philippines? Do I need to register online?

    Is it okay if my reference letter does not indicate pay rate since I will be providing payslips, bir form 2316, hdmf and sss contributions?

    In addition to above inquiries, the Summary statement is like a matching type thing from the career episodes to the competencies in the summary statement. Just like copy paste without adding information.

    Thank you.

      Hi good day. I'm sorry pero I have no idea on what to put as proof of employment since I'm a fresh grad. For my CDR, I also used my undergrad projects. Some people might give better ideas than me.

      Hi good day may I know what school po kayo? And board passer po ba? Recognized nila yun pero different school sections have different requirements. I suggest downloading the current msa booklet muna to identify the latest guidelines sa cdr. Tanong lang po kayo if you have any questions
    • chemchemVal
      from Mapua po ako. wala pa po akong lisensya.. thank you po talaga.
    • MLBS
      Mapua intra? If so ok yan bachelors naman ma aassess sa inyo no worries. Just comply with the anzsco description of civil engg sa paggawa ng cdr mo
  • sapphires_18
    Hello :) nakalodge ka na ng application mo for PR? As per my agent, as much as possible wag muna magssubmit for PR kasi magtataka sila bakit ka magstudent, lalabas na may PR application ka. Meaning gusto mo talagang magstay ng matagal dun.

      Hi puro EOI lang po ang meron ako e. Di pa ako naiinvite kahit Sept. 2017 pa ako nagsubmit So pano po dapat kong gawin? I-withdraw ko mga yun then apply for a student visa? Currently I'm waiting pa for July to come in the hopes na mainvite ako kahit 489 relative sponsored lang, pero if wala talaga then apply na ako ng student visa ASAP
    • sapphires_18
      Ah okay pa yun, no need to withdraw the application basta hindi ka pa nakapagbayad for PR Visa. Medyo mahirap kasi talaga kapag PR kaya most of the agencies, student visa ang option. Sobrang magastos nga lang talaga.
    • MLBS
      Ai buti naman po good to know :) i saw na AMS ang agency nyo? Dyan ko rin po balak if ever e. Kamusta naman po sila?
    • sapphires_18
      Okay sila pero syempre mangungulit ka rin. Waiting for CoE na ako tapos hopefully medical na next week. So far, supportive sila.
    • MLBS
      Pano po ba ang process ng pag apply ng visa? From what I've read ganito ba sya:

      1. Find school
      2. Submit requirements to get offer letter
      3. Pay tuition
      4. Collect requirements for visa
      5. Pay for student visa

      Although di pa naman ako mag aapply, inaalam ko lang ano ang steps. July ko pa balak magpasa when I know if maiinvite ako sa iba kong EOIs. Thanks!
    • sapphires_18
      Almost ganon nga :)

      1. Find school
      2. Submit requirements to get offer letter
      3. Pay OSHC and tuition (Once may CoE)
      4. Create Immiaccount for student visa and medical exam
      5. Medical Exam
      6. Collect and Notarize requirements for visa (bank cert 1 month validity lang daw)
      7. Pay and lodge for student visa
    • MLBS
      Thanks for the detailed respons :D Kinakabahan ako sa GTE e nababasa ko may nadedeny daw dun tapos bayad uli pag reapply. What stage ka na sa process? Gaano katagal inabot ng timeline mo?
    • sapphires_18
      May CoE na ako and medical na next week. Yup, paglalamayan ko ung GTE this holy week kasi dapat convincing talaga. Nagstart ako ng December sa IELTS tapos completion of documents. Natagalan lang sa funds March ko na naayos, kasi sabi nung una, dapat 3 mos sa bank, tapos later on sinabi nila no need daw na 3 months. Yung school din parang average 4 days magreply.

    • MLBS
      I'll try to make a draft po for you here goes:

      Nowadays, there is an ongoing dispute whether television can be used for loneliness.......
      This essay will discuss the reasoning why some people think as such.

      First of all ...... (argument)

      It is also important to note that.... (argument)

      With the points stated above, I can affirm that television cannot be a substitute for human interaction.

      Pinapalitan ko lang po yung 1st paragraph kung argument o opinion or etc. Nag improvise nalang ako nung actual test

New SimplyStall Mobile App!

Hi everyone!

I'm very happy to announce PinoyAu Forum's new app called "SimplyStall" . It's a new Gumtree like service for Pinoys in Australia but in a way better!

So if you have any items just collecting dust? Why not convert it to cash?

If you are selling new items or products or wish to give an item away for free then this might be a good avenue for you.

This project is a new initiative to unify and have a common portal for Pinoys in Australia to sell and share stuffs.

It's now available on Google Play and Apple App Store.

Please do try it out. I'd appreciate if you can help me spread the good news and start selling your old or new stuffs.
