Reference Letter format

Hi Mark,

To introduce myself, I am a professional with 9.5+ years experience in Supply Chain and Engineering Fields.

I have degrees in Industrial Engineering (Bachelors) and MBA (Masters).

I was planning to apply for skill assessment against my educational background and work experience from Engineers Australia.

Can you please help me with a format of Reference Letter that has to be obtained from my company against the work experience as an Industrial Engineer?I have gone through the Migration Booklet of EA but could not fully understand their exact requirement.

What are the fields that have to be mandatorily mentioned along with the job role & responsibilities?

In my case, I may be able to show 8+ years experience in my current company. However, it might be difficult to get a similar letter (mentioning my roles & responsibilities in detail) from my previous company where I had worked for 1.5 years. Considering that I have 8+ experience in my current company,is any letter from my previous employer required at all?

Also,in my current company,do I need to show my job promotions over the years at similar role or a mention of the current designation is enough??

Will look forward to your valuable insight into the matter.

Thanks & regards,

Sourav Chakraborty

Hi -

Generally title, responsibilities, hire date, end date and hours (ie, full time or otherwise) are what's required. EA work reference service is optional - you can have it done on whatever work you wish to have assessed.

Hope this helps -

Best,

Mark Northam

Hi Mark

Thanks a lot for the information.

If I want to claim points against my work experience, then do I need to get my work assessed by EA? If it's yes, then out of the 3 CDRs ,can I show 1 from my Engineering graduation and 2 from my work experience? Will that meet the criteria?

If EA doesn't get the work experience assessed, then whom should I go through for work assessment?

Regards,
Sourav Chakraborty

Hi Mark,
We couldn't meet as I was busy even of Saturday's due to my assignment in Sydney. Thanks for all the responses that you have provided so far.

I am in the process of filling the EOI for Subclass 189. I just need the following queries. Sorry to be a bother

1. For the Education Qualification in EOI, I am mentioning by highest qualification, which is Bachelors Degree in Engineering. I believe this should be enough? I am not mentioning my Higher Secondary (High School grade) and Secondary(10th grade) qualifications. Please correct me if my understanding is wrong.

2. For the work experience in EOI, my ACS letter mentions my relevant experience starts from March 2008.. though my work experience starts from March 2006 which I mentioned in my ACS letter. The following text from the ACS letter illustrates this..


"The following employment after March 2008 is considered to equate to work at an appropriately skilled level and relevant to 261312 (Developer Programmer) of ANZCODE.

Company one - From 02/March/2006 to 08/February/2007
Company two - From 09/February/2007 to 27/June/2008
Company three - From 01/July/2008 etc..."

For the above data, I am planning to enter the EOI like this..

Company one From 02/March/2006 to 08/February/2007 - Not relevant to assessment
Company two From 09/February/2007 to 29/February/2008 - Not relevant to assessment
Company two From 01/March/2008 to 27/June/2008/ - Relevant to Assessment
Company three From 01/July/2008 etc...

as you can see, I've mentioned the relevant experience for Company two only from March 2008, the rest of the experience for the Company two has been marked "not relevant" (though the whole period belongs to the same company).

Is my approach correct? I would be much obliged If you could clarify this.

Regards
Naren

Hi Naren -

Your approach looks good - can't give you specific advice without seeing your documents, however from what you've said, it makes sense. I'd suggest starting the relevant employment 1 April rather than 1 March based on the wording of the ACS letter.

Hope this helps -

Best,

Mark Northam

Hi Mark,

Thanks for the superfast reply.. About the updating of education qualifications on the EOI. The ACS has provided the wordings

"Your Bachelor of Engineering in Computer Science and Engineering from Anna University completed
April 2005 has been assessed as comparable to an AQF Bachelor Degree with a Major in computing."

For this, I believe, just the Bachelor Degree details can be entered in the EOI under Educational qualifications ?

Regards
Naren

Correct - you can enter both degrees if you'd like, but you only get points for the Bachelor.

Hi Naveen -

This may work, but would need to discuss details with you in a consultation in order to give you an opinion. Would also need to see proposed letters or statements in order to assist - also note that both DIBP and the skills assessor will need these, and different assessors have different requirements, so need to assess any proposed references against both standards and requirements. Happy to assist at a consultation - see link on my website below.

Hope this helps -

Best,

Mark Northam
