Specific Work Experience

Hi All,

On 2nd June 2008, I joined a telecommunication company as an engineer after FULLY completing the degree program .

On 2nd June 2011, I complete 3 years of experience as and engineer and I was planning to apply the Skilled Independent (Migrant) Visa (Subclass 175) on the same day by

claiming points as below;
60 - profession
30 - age
25 - ielts
10 - 3 years work experience.

Today I suddenly noticed in my transcript it states the date of graduation as 1st July 2008. Ideally it should be 30th May 2008.

But now I have a confusion, whether DIAC will calculate the working experience from date of 1st July 2008. since that is the date mentioned in my transcript as the Date Of Graduation.

If DIAC considers my working experience from the date I joined the company which is 2nd June 2008 which is very correct and reasonable, I will have the required points and I will be fully qualified to apply the Visa.

Summary of the timelines

2008 - May 30th - Department head communicated that the Degree work is finished. Actually that is the date where we had the Final evaluation of the Project, which completed all the academic work.

2008 - June 2nd - I joined the company as an engineer

2008 - July 1st - This is the date mentioned in the Transcript as the date of graduation.

2011 - June 2nd - Completes 3 years of working experience

Please let me know whether I am able to claim 10 points for working experience by 2nd June 2011?

Highly appreciate your reply on this regard. I had arranged everything to lodge the application on 2nd June 2011 and now really worried from this sudden fact which I came across. Only few days left to apply with the old point scheme and with the new scheme I will not be able to apply. :-(
