I have a simple question, I'm currently studying full-time for a college degree in US. I do have some pevious experience also.

My question is on form IMM 0008, question  No. 13, they are asking "Current occupation", can I write down "College Student" or I just write "unemployed" instead. Do you think "Full-time Student" is an occupation?

Please anybody who had the same situation,

I have no experience in this, I would write unemployed or full time student or N/A if you are not counting any part time job that you are doing now for your employment points.

If you are doing part time job and it is counted towards your employment points, i would write that in. So in my case, i wrote teaching assistant.

I am not an expert at Canadian Immigration.
Please don't expect me to answer if your post title has urgent in it and it is not really urgent. Urgent is 911 or you have a definite deadline tomorrow, not that you would like to send in the application soon
