    Yes, I’m looking at Alberta / Ontario as they don’t require an offer for the NOI. Fingers crossed with 458 CRS though

    That’s right, I could come down for 3 months in person to complete it onshore - just not sure if that’s enough during COVID. Otherwise, I understand that the instructions are to be onshore for at least 8 months to get points for Canadian Education

    Good question :D I think I just like Canada and it’s culture/people, not to mention the snowy winters which are never going to happen down under. I see your point around job market and employer demands for MS or PhD - I’ve got loads of cloud, data & analytics certs from industry bodies. Hope...

    Australian in need of help

    Unfortunately, studying full time at a uni is not an option worth considering since I’m on $180K AUD atm - happy to lose some fat and settle down for $150K ish for a year or two to keep going. But, going back to uni full time and leaving a job worth $180K may not be a good idea at the age of 33...

    Australian in need of help

    Looks like a typical catch 22 problem here. Need a job offer for YP, and a positive LMIA for EE via WHV - do you know which one is more feasible given the realities of cross border job search hiccups. I am not sure if it’s easy to get a job offer offshore (YP) or onshore (WHV) - could please...

    Wow, haven’t thought it would take 1 year for processing IEC/WHV :rolleyes: I would lose points for age as the years pass by and the wait is always nail biting; couldn’t hold my breath for 3 days to get 9988 in IELTS :eek: 1 year seems like a lot of time; could you please point me to the source...

    I reckon it makes sense after reading for four times now :). So, my options (really) are: Apply for WHV (without any job offer), come & work for one year (with any employer) to claim Canada experience after 12 months. Not sure if I can get extra 50 points in case the Employer chooses to offer...

    Thanks for that explanation Naturgrl - it’s kind of depressing to know this, but glad to face the facts nonetheless :D Am I correct to assume that Employers don’t need an LMIA to offer me a job once I have the open work permit through IEC/WHV? or do you reckon they still need a positive LMIA to...

    Hi there, I have got 458 CRS score after maxing out on IELTS. Would anyone know if I (as an Australian citizen) need LMIA to get an employment offer? or is the below scenario playsible: I apply for IEC (open work permit as part of Working Holiday visa as I’m < 35) - 100% possible once the next...
