    To claim points for partner skills, her skill ( call center agent) should be listed in the skills occupations list and have a positive skills assessment issued by the relevant australian assessing body.

    From here:

    My skill is
    Software Engineer

    Ang closest skill that I can find for call center agent is Customer Service Manager??

    basahin nyu yung roles and responsibilities nung CSM, tignan nyo kung the same sa ginagawa ni partner. anong visa ang plan nyung applyan?

    yup, hindi pwede, dapat same list talaga. yan na yung link from sir @Heprex nanjan na lahat info.
  • RheaMARN1171933RheaMARN1171933 Member, Administrator
    @OzyCebuano she can nominate accountant as her occupation. Don’t even focus on contact centre agent as she won’t qualify as customer service manager and it’s not on the same list as software engineer. Accountant (general) is in MLTSSL as well.
  • esbesb Member
    Hi @RheaMARN1171933 I would like to know if pwede po ako sa construction project manager graduate po ako as an architect but lahat po ng work ko ay sa construction and now po project in charge po ako un gngawa ko po is katulad ng sa cnostruction project manager possible po ba n yun ang ipa assess ko? Thank you in advance po
  • OzyCebuanoOzyCebuano Singapore
    @RheaMARN1171933 ok lang po ba yan na ipa.assess nya ung Accountant qualification nya? pro wala xang work experience as accountant?
  • RheaMARN1171933RheaMARN1171933 Member, Administrator
    @OzyCebuano work experience is not required to get a positive assessment. Check the requirements with CPA Australia. Good luck!

    agree ako dito @OzyCebuano go for accountant assessment sa partner mo , need mo lang ng positive assessment, competent english at under 45 yrs old makukuha mo nyu na +5 sa partner points.

    you can also avail din ang services ni miss @RheaMARN1171933 dahil trusted AU agent sya. wag kang kumuha ng agent dyan sa SG, daming hindi MARA certified dyan na nagpapanggap na agent for AU dyan at sasabihin na di lang daw updated ang website ng AU sa registered agent, lols.
  • aron_drnaron_drn Singapore
    @OzyCebuano bai....ingat sa pag kuha ng Agent sa Singapore.... marami d2 sa SG.. scientist na AGENT yung pwedi ipadala sa MARs dahil sa ubod ng galing at sinungaling..mag ingat.. most of the agent sa SG na puntahan ko na nun nag search ako for almost one yr.. if you want personnal advise about agent you better choice MARA register..

  • aron_drnaron_drn Singapore
    @OzyCebuano one more thing...meron din MARA agent sa Singapore peru habol nia $$$ ingat kasi in my personal experience nagkamali advise ng agent sakin mabuti na lng napag isipan ko na wag sundin ang sinabi nia after searching sa website ng DoHA tama pala ginawa be aware...
    Bigyan mo muna ng mga matinding tanong yung agent...paikot ikot mo rin sia para mahuli mo kung tama nga according sa DoHA kasi kalimitan dito sa SG bagong agent ..nagsilipana sila d2 sa SG..lalo na chikwa..

  • patotoypatotoy Member
    nabiktima ka pala sir? may naexperience din kaibigan ko lalo na sa mga FREE seminar nila. 2k sgd yung agent's fee para mag submit ng EOI, hahaha! may mga FREE seminar din na ipapa-feel sayo na sobrang hirap mag-asikaso ng documents at may mga guest speaker pa sila na Aussies, eh muka namang staged ang drama eh.

    sir @OzyCebuano since nandito ka na din lang sa pinoyau, ask around regarding trusted AU agents and always check kung MARA registered sila. wag kang papauto sa hindi pa daw updated or mabagal daw minsan mag-update ang AU sa registered MARA list nila, lols.

    daming manloloko na agent-agentan sa SG kaya beware.
  • OzyCebuanoOzyCebuano Singapore
    @patotoy @aron_drn Thanks sa mga info nyu mga sir. Wala naman akong plan kumuha ng agent. kasi sa tingin ko clear naman ung mga steps na gagawin ko. hehe. d ko palang gets ung invitation round at when ung best month na mag submit ng EOI.

    @OzyCebuano having a good agent and register MARA will ease your anxiety and mostly give you peace of mind. Because when you log visa soon things where in different ways.
