Hi Guys,

I am a software professional(QA Automation Engg.) and have a total of 9 years of experience. My work experiences are as follows:
1: Jul - 2010 to Apr-2013 :(2.9 yrs) : NOC code 2173.
2: May - 2013 till date : (6.1 yrs) : NOC 2173+NOC 2171
My 1st occupation is fine but regarding the 2nd, I have been working with job duties which are a mix of job NOC code 2173 and 2171(50-50%). However, in my submitted EE profile, I have chosen 2171 for the current employment(to keep variety of NOCs in my EE profile). While I could have chosen 2173 for occupation2 without any problem. However, The primary NOC in my EE is 2173.
Now my dilemma is: OINP has not listed 2171 in its OID list and they consider the last 5 years of experience to invite a candidate. So, I think I don't stand a chance if a tech-draw occurs at my CRS.
Questions:
1. Would OINP consider the primary NOC to consider a profile?
2. Should NOC in occupation2 be changed to 2173 to increase my chances? Though, from various platforms I learned that changing NOC usually attracts the chances of rejection in assessment.
What should be the best option for me?

I got NOI from both SINP and OINP. I submitted my application for SINP and its in process. They are waiting for my CIPS license in order to proceed further. Today, I got invite from OINP too. I'm confused if I should go ahead and apply for OINP? I think OINP process would be quicker as it doesnt need any license but It would require further application fees (Thats not a big concern though). Any guidance?
Thats called a lucky and talented person congrats

Congrats for your NOI! Did you receive it with a lower CRS than the cutoff? That's surprising!

Guys, I made a mistake in my application. I submitted only "Filled" page of the passport and didn't attach the blank pages. I have already submitted the application. Is there any way to upload the docs now?

Hi Respected Group members,

Greetings for the day,

I received my NOI on 12th July draw of OINP and in the process of submitting my application. I've completed the form and yet to upload the documents and pay fees, I've few queries and I am here to seek guidance of the respected members.

Let me give a brief back ground

My Education

-B.Sc Started 2004 - Ended 2007 , but received the degree in 2008 due to arrears
- M.sc Started 2008 - ended 2010 , but received degree during the year 2014 due to arrears
ECA okay

My Work expereince

1. 2007-Aug to 2009-Aug BPO 6552 - Other customer and information services representatives , India
2. 2010-May to 2014-April Subject Matter Expert 2173 - Software Engineers, India
3. 2014-April to 2015-May Senior Administrator 2173 - Software Engineers, India
4. 2015-May to 2019-March Technical Lead 2173 - Software Engineers, India
5. 2019-March till date Sr DevOps Engineer 2173 - Software Engineers - Outside India


My Concern
1. My Masters education is overlapping with myBPO work expereince
2. there is a gap in employment from 2009 to 2010
3. For my third work experience of one year, the company is refusing to issue a reference letter with roles and responsibilities, the letter issued just has a one line statement that i was delivering duties of that of linux admin L1/L2.
4. my 2nd experience reference letter was issued back in the year 2015, is it okay to submit that reference letter.


My queries

1. in the OINP application there is a section for other activities, should i declare work gap over there and provide a letter of explanation mentioning the reason for Gap and the overlapping of employment and education.

2. Can i use the expereince letter dated 2015 for my exployment period 2010 - 2014 .

3. Can i use the roles and resposnibilities which just mentions that I have delivered dutries of linux admin and additionaly provide screenshots or links from naukri.com or from wipro career portal mentioning that i Was performing actiites of a linux admin and it falls within 2173.

4. For proof of funds I will be getting a gift deed from dad for about 75% of the amount in INR for the rest 25% I have a fixed deposit in SGD ,can I combine both and show it to them or should it be within the same account

5. My Profile on CIC expires on nov 2019, and I happen to decline my first invition from CIC last year's EE draw, will these pose a concern.

6. i have an outstnading loan in one of the indain account should i show that and explain that as well.

Hi Guys, regarding gift deed, my brother stays abroad and he can transfer the amount for proof of funds. But as per the process I have seen, the gift letter and the affidavit need to be signed. Is there a workaround for this?
