Time line for GSM 175 and Age question

Hello guys,
I wants to confirm that according to new priority list
http://www.immi.gov.au/skilled/gener...-july-2010.pdf

Client Service Charter

If i am going to apply for GSM 175 after 1st july 2010 and my occupation falls in SOL3 then i falls in Priority group 3 mean i have to wait for almost 2 years. Right?
They meant to say that 18 to 24 months are limit and it is possible that process can be end before 18 months , may be 12 months?

=========================================

Let say my age is 29.5 means between 29 and 30 i mean when after ACS assessment i launched my online application process and i am 29.5 years old at that time then they will check my age verification at the day i will launched my application?
OR
if they are saying that they will take 18 to 24 months for priority group 3 then if they will take 1 year or 2 year for processing than would they give me points according to 18-29 age points or would they give me points according to 30-34 age points?

You'll get the points based on your age at date of lodgement it girl.
The statement means what it says and that's a 175 visa application could take between 18 months to two years to be processed, it being a factor of the numbers applying and numbers allocated per annum.
You may want to see about getting a state sponsorship for by the time you get your ACS assessment the states/territories will hopefully have their State Migration Plans established and a176 application on a SMP will be priority #2 and thus should be processed in 12 months.
Perhaps even register with some employment agencies and with plenty of experience you may find an employer prepared to sponsor and so that could mean an even quicker processing.

There's the usual online sites like SEEK - Australia's no. 1 jobs, employment, career and recruitment site and www.careerone.com.au that you may find IT jobs on and if you do a search re IT specifically you might come up with a few more.
Manpower - Recruiting, temporary jobs, permanent placement, employment agency. seem a little more proactive and have an employment event scheduled for later in the month in Melbourne and if they do one for Sydney as well later on and you've got your ACS assessment organised, a cheap flight with Viva Macau Airline | Welcome might be worth considering for a look see.
Then there's Home - National Broadband Network - NBN Co Limited and though the national FO broadband roll out has been a political hot potato and may remain so, they are employing heaps of people and then there's also the RSPs [ new name for ISPs ] like iiNet Australia - careers who'll also be into employing people.
A couple of other RSPs are something like iprimus and inode I think they call themselves.
Really going to depend on your area of expertise where you ought to look I suppose.
The IT industry is crowded but expanding and if you have good experience, that's an assett over and above more recent graduates.

Thanks for supplying some fruitful links . Well i am a bit confuse with your above^^ statement regarding employment event scheduled? can you please write in detail what is this? you meant to come in australia for a visit visa or what? I am pretty sure that i have enough experience and qualification to pass any interview/criteria related to my job..So do you suggest me for a visit visa or study visa for just coming in australia? and then later after entering in Australia i would need to apply for work visa??

2ndly did you mean that if i already cleared ACS assessment process then there are more chances for a job offer in australia? Because i already send my CV to some jobs opening in australia but did not hear any sound from them

3rdly i checked manpower website few weeks ago but i could not find their office in my country and also in all jobs offering in manpower they do mention one thing ie
Open To: Only people with Australia/NZ non-restricted visa should apply

an example is like this one ==> http://jobs.manpower.com.au/job/job_...71&from=direct

All I was suggesting is that if there is any organisation running something like an employment/industry convention/event, they may offer contacts re employees if not opportunities themselves and yes, many agencies/companies can have jobs with a requirement of holding a visa [ and I had not picked that up on the Manpower site ] but that may be changing as they also realise that Immigration are fostering the employer sponsorship approach as priority #1
I would certainly think that having your ACS assessment will not detract from your cause for if you have that and an independent visa application pending, that may even sway a tentative prospective employer to offer sponsorship.
Being on a Pakistan passport [ is it? ] does limit what visas you can make a trip on as the ETA is not available and other than a student visa you would likely have a No Further Stay condition applied to a tourist visa but even if you came on a tourist visa, there is nothing to stop you making contact with potential employers to see whether there would be any intetrested in employer sponsorship for you, that being something you would have to leave again for and apply from abroad but an employer could start the ball rolling with their side of the process while you were still in the country.
You would just need to be wary on entering on a tourist visa if you do that so you are not seen as actually looking to start employment and thus any type of personal/education/qualifications/employment documentation you'll be best to have online so you can access it when in Australia rather than bring a load of hard copy stuff in with you.
