Question anyone had a skill assessment from aim?

Has anyone had a positive skill assessment from AIM. We have been told by agent that it is virtually impossible if you do not have a degree.

Hi Ann,

Yes I got a positive skills assessment, I was told the same thing by an agent and to be fair the first time I applied I was rejected.

I applied under General Manager - For this you need 5 years experience managing managers at a senior level. You need to be totally accountable for your area of the business ie manage budgets and P&L.

I was given 1 year 'grace' for my post grad diploma in marketing. (I don't have a degree), and needed 4 years experience. I waited 2 years and applied again, and was ok.

Hope this is helpful. You only know by applying - They took only 3 weeks to reply.
Any other questions, just ask.

Mash..

Default thanks mish

Thanks very much for your prompt reply, it was encouraging. However, hubby is 43 now and I think we are cutting it close for application. We have sent off form signed by CEO of company. He has 9 years experience as senior manager. Also have enclosed all the info on his job and the company, also signed by the CEO. Oh and yes - the payment. Keep your fingers crossed for us.

Best of luck and let us know the outcome. It's the start of a long process....

Hopefully my wait is nearly over. Applied Sept 2001, waiting nearly 15 months so far for visa. Maybe next year...

You mentioned your husband is 43, if I may ask why are you wanting to live in another country?,

Re why are we wanting to live in another country if Hubby is 43 - Why not? My parents and four of my five brothers are in Aus. I have been on holiday there five times - I love the place but until recently could not persuade Hubby to go until now. By the way I am 48 (He is my toyboy).

Sorry Mash

I was so excited at getting a reply to my question I mis-typed.

Hope you get your PR soon. Let me know
