Question GSM 175 Applicant past 4 Year employment

Hi All,
Hope you all doing OK.
I am salim and currently in the process of filling up the on line GSM visa class 175 form after a successful skill assessment as a Mechanical engineer. I need some clarification/advise. I reached a stage where my past 4 years employment history is being asked for. In attempting to fill the details, there is a field named "position" but the only occupations available for selection is as per the SOL list. The problem is that in the past four years my Titles at employment (with the same employer)are not exactly "Mechanical Engineer" but "Maintenance Manager" and "Projects and Engineering Manager". How do I fill in this section? Can I select my position as "Mechanical Engineer" and give the title and duties in the details space? if so, it means I will be showing I have changed Mech Engineers position twice?? ......I am a bit confused......some one advise me please.
Regards
Salim

Welcome to the forum Salim and I'll move this thread to our Visas and Immigration section.

It is quite reasonable that as a Mechanical Engineer you can hold positions with titles such as you mention, been there myself and it's a bit like writing up a CV or Resume where you have a qualification and then positions which will be somewhat related to what you studied.

The immi application just needs to have positions filled in as what you would get in a Employment certificate from your company.

I'd suggest that though Mechanical Engineer is stillon our MODL/CSL last time I looked, have a look at sticky thread#4 in the Visas/Immi section re priority of processing and you may want to consider getting a state nomination re a 176 visa and that could make things a bit quicker for you.

It'll be a tight job market in Australia for a few years I expect, just like in a lot of other countries and so you need to give thought to what plans you may have if it is hard initially to find work.

[Dear Wanderer,
Thank you for your advise and I am considering the option of Visa class 176. You are right it could make the process quicker. I am considering Western Australia...what's your opinion?.
Regards

Western Australia has boomed in recent decades mainly because of mining/gas industry and feeding Chinas industrial growth which is slowing courtesy of global economics.

Property prices went very high over there and have started to fall and I'd suspect that WA will have a less diverse economy to help it through global/Australian economics - WA often kind of thought of as being another country, Perth actually closer to Singapore than it is to East Coast but a lovely place to live if work is secure.

A 176 by state nomination only means being tied to that state for two years.

Dear Wanderer,
You sound pessimistic with regard to WA's capacity in recovering from the current economic crisis. In your opinion, which state/territory has a higher potential to recovery?

Any way; please advise me on whether I can concurrently apply for the 176 visa and state sponship OR must I have the state/territory sponsorship prior to submission of my 176 visa application? I am considering that if I apply the two at the same time, I will gain on the overall processing time.
Regards
Salim

Salim, personally I do not think we've reached the end of the economic crisis and Australia may well lag behind other countries.

Think I read somewhere, [possibly in FAQ on new processing priorities - see sticky #4 ] that you could put in a 175 visa and once having got a state nomination, send that into immi and have your 175 become a 176.
You could check tyhat direct with immi via email.

We've also had a poster on here who reported that state nomination was obtained fairly quickly.

I have a hunch that most people go for NSW (Sydney) state nomination, because it is one of the most well known places in Australia. Yes, they probably have the most job opportunities, but it will be competitive and cost of living is higher.

WA, Queensland and Victoria are all nice places to live with growing economies.

Dear Mike,
How about South Australia? i.e. in terms of cost of living and Engineering job opportunities comparative to WA.

Salim
