I graduated as Electronic Engineering Technology, I got a job at a big electronic manufacturing company through an employment agency called Aerotek. I was hired as a Test Technician, I did assembly, testing and conducted burn-ins on the products, for a period of one month. After that, the supervisor decided to move me to picking area because he noticed that I was fast and computer skilled, so basically I do data entry, components that are going in and out of the warehouse, but they trianed me to use a database system called Oracle. I think my supervisor didn't tell the agency about this transition because I am still receiving the same pay as a technician. I was hired as a Technician according to the contract (employment agreement) with Aerotek. Please I need help, I do not know what to do, the manager and supervisor like how I work, but I do not feel like am doing some skilled work. It is hard to find a Technologist/Technician position because of the experience. I have been working there for 6 months already, Must I try to find a technician job. Please I need advice, I cannot sleep because of this. I was thinking on asking Aerotek for a reference letter, and see what are the duties I am performing, and try my luck since they don't know that I was moved to eprform other duties. Please could someone give me advise. I do variable hours every week, like 40 hrs to 60 hrs a week, in average 50 hours a week. My pay is about $14/Hour

Hello - I may be wrong, but looking at your post it seems that you are anxious at this moment. Dear friend - there will be many a people here who can help you, so do not lose hope  Smiley

Now are you in PGWP or in work permit sponsored by your employer?
If you are in PGWP, then you would be most likely being on an open WP.  If your WP is sponsored by your employer, then you must know your NOC. You can ask your employer for that.

In either case, you should email HRSDC with your detailed job descriptions to find what your NOC code is. In fact, you can do a little search on their site (for homework purpose).
http://www.hrsdc.gc.ca/eng/home.shtml

Once HRSDC replies, you will get to know whether your NOC is eligible for CEC program (Level 0, A or B).
Please note that, your employer or contract firm should be ready to write a detailed ref. letter for the appropriate NOC.

Best of luck.

Yes, I have a PGWP. Yes,I am little bit anxious, and afraid at the same time.  I just don't want to get rejected. I do not feel confident enough with the job I currently have. I cannot stop thinking about this, I feel like I am not eligible. What if they write an employment letter, and they don't include my duties because they don't what I am doing. Should I apply under CEC after I finish my year contract, or look for a better, permanent job and work for another year?

If you want to apply, you need to be sure that you have the required skilled work experience.  It sounds like you know what you need to do, your ideas are good - talk to your supervisor and ask for a job description (if you have a good relationship, you can even explain why you want it). You can look for another job.  Take whatever steps you need to reassure yourself, you have time to make it right.  It's a terrible thing to spend all that time in a job and LATER find out it's not eligible.

If I find another job, when I am applying, must I include my previous work experience?
