Hi All,
I created my express entry profile right after gaining 1 year of work experience in Canada. During the past year I have gained the first 6 months of experience as Municipal Engineering Assistant (NOC Code 2231-Skill type B) and the remaining 6 months I have been working as an Engineer, Roadways and Transportation (NOC Code 2121-Skill type A).

Since I have an engineering degree from Canada, I have believe that my primary occupation should be Engineer, Roadways and Transportation (NOC Code 2121-Skill A). However I have doubts because I don not have a P.Eng yet.

What should I do?

NOC 2121 is Biologist. I presume you mean 2131 (Civil engineer)?

It is not mandatory to have the P.Eng title to do the jobs you do. So it is not a problem - you just cannot use the title P.Eng, and you cannot list "approve engineering drawings and reports" as one of your job duties.
