Applying for permanent residence

Hi

I have been in Australia since last 6 years. Following are my details

Bachelor in technology (computer science engineering ) india
Masters in networking Australia

After masters i have not worked in field relevant to my study. I have not did professional year course. When my visa was about to expire i applied for student visa again for diploma courses. Now i am on student visa.

My query is that i want to apply for permanent residence but i don'tknow what to do. Because i can never apply for skill point system because i haven't did job in relevant field.

Please suggest me what should i do. I am very confused.

Thanks

Have you looked into a 485 visa? It at least gives you a chance to gain 18 months experience but that still won't be enough to get a positive skills assessment in an IT field.

The ability to get a PR visa after a student visa is extremely limited.

I don't know much at all about doing a professional year. This post below gives some information. I'd suggest you contact a migration agent to see what options you may have.
