    @iam_juju Hindi na ba kayo makakakuha ng work refences from your colleagues before? Ang pinass lang namin payslip, ung work references tsaka yung coe... Wala namang ibang hiningi. :)
    Hi! OO pwede po ako humingi. Pano ba yung work reference from colleagues? Although temporarily closed ngayon yung laboratory pero makakahingi Parin ako. Yun pa pala may idea ka ba Anong docs isusubmit pag closed na ang employer. Nag transfer kasi ng location pero not operational as of last week pinuntahan ko kasi kulang pa ng staff and Ibang gamit. So pag nag verify yung CO baka Hindi macocontact. Tumatawag ba sila sa mga employers past and present? Haist! Complicated hehe

    @iam_juju Yung mga employers dito they do reference checking pero with immigration i'm not so keen about their process,hehe. You can explain it to the CO just in case tanungin ka or even write about it sa form 80. Submit ka lang COE and payslip na rin. Yung kakilala ko May applicant hiningan ng payslip. Yung work reference nakastate dun kung kelan ka nagwork sa company, kung ano yung ginagawa tsaka yung attitude mo towards work. :)

    @chewychewbacca Congrats! As for the invite, hopefully makaabot ka sa next invitation round next week, May 25. Based sa Apr 27 invitation round, 65 points ang cutoff (for those who applied Mar 15 3:43pm or earlier). Medyo mahaba ang pila due to the huge number of applicants for the 2613 occupations. Hindi pa lumalabas yung stats for May 11 invitation round. Sana marami na sila na-process sa backlog (almost 1.5 months).

    Just keep on praying. Dadating din yung invite :)

    @zeilem1229 definitely you have to be invited first prior any medical procedures...as this shall validate if you meet 60 pts above minimum requirements. Good luck!
