Currently living/working in Melbourne on a 457 - Now seeking to get residency on a 175.
= I therefore need to get my skills assessed.
I have checked and there are two categories on the new SOL that I deem myself appropriate for:
Computing Professionals - (not elsewhere classified) 2231-79 (ACS) - 60 pts
Cartographer 2123-11 (VETASSESS) - 50pts
Being that Computer Professional gains me more points, it would make sense to go for this one.
I did a bachelors degree in Geographical Information Systems (GIS) which is a computer science degree concerning digital mapping (a form of cartography).
I have over 7yrs experience in the field, and I am currently working for ESRI, a major GIS software vendor, as a Support analyst in a Server/Developer team, for people having problems with the GIS Server software.
I know I am lucky that I have two options on the new SOL, but not sure which one I should be applying for. I guess this is a long shot asking here, but I thought it might be worth it, particularly, if anyone in the future googles for the skills codes.
