    Are skilled tradie occupations less competitive?

    Thanks for the advice. I'm following the published stats on invitation rounds here: https://immi.homeaffairs.gov.au/visas/working-in-australia/skillselect/invitation-rounds but there's no data on tradie occupations. Is there somewhere else where they publish more data on this? Also they don't publish how many people are still waiting to get selected. For example, the site says that the occupation ceiling for bricklayer is 1594 with only 11 invites so far this year. Does this mean there were only 11 qualified applicants?
  2. I'm forming a long-term plan to gain PR in Australia. Based on what I've read most office and ICT occupations are highly competitive, while tradie occupations go unfilled. I currently have less than 3 years work experience in a skilled occupation. Thus my tentative plan is to gain 3-5 years work experience in one of these fields (bricklayer or tiler) and get certified. Is this approach wise? With the cut off at 80, 90 pts for office/ICT occupations, I don't believe I'd ever get an invite.
