Default Return to Australia 457 Expired

Can anyone please help?
I left Australia last year end of October 2001, my 457 sub class visa was going to expire.
The company that I worked for no longer needed my services as I had trained another person to do my job.
Question I am back in the U.K and want to return to OZ permanantly, I have been told that as I was there for neally 3 years, 2yrs of which was the Visa 457, that I could of applied for permanant resident? Is this true?.
2nd I have scored 135 points but 1 Migration Agency the only I have tried so far said that "as I have no degree/diploma etc in Marketing then this does not qualify? weird how are you supposed to become a Marketing Specialist, without the experience it is back to front, or are they having me on.
How can a student do a job they have no experience in?
I have 15yrs proven track record.
Any help or comments please let me know or any ideas how I can return under a diffirent Visa status.
Thankyou in advance to anyone who can help or replies.
Susie

having a 457 gives you no privileges with regard to your residency attempts it only gives you a further 5 points to your points test total. You need to get your degree assessed by the relevant authority in your field. If you don't have a relevant degree then there must be some minumum experience you need to have - 15 years should suffice if you can prove it. Search www.immi.gov.au for your relevant assessing authority

Marketing Specialist is assessed by VETASSESS and is a 50 point occupation. From page
31 of the current Skilled Migration booklet:

"50 points - for more general professional occupations You must have a qualification
equal to an Australian Bachelor degree of higher qualification (but it need not be
specifically related to your nominated occupation)"

The VETASSESS website is: http://www.vetassess.com.au

As Marketing Specialist is only a 50 point occupation, how did you manage to get to
your assessed total of 135 points to begin with?

Well to be honest I did an online assesment, with a Melbourne Migration Company.
Maybe it is there way of getting you to pay for the assesment, by making you believe that you qualify????? who knows.
Anyway I have no idea how they came up with 135 it asked.
Had I worked in Australia in the past 2 years? yes
Did I have Family there yes.
Was I Single?
What was my occupation.
Age.
Nothing else much relevant, but when I saw they wanted they wanted $145 aus before they would get back to me, bells started to ring.
I am just trying to figure out who to go with?
I did not keep the assesment but will wait and see if I hear anything.(probably not) I asked what was I getting for $145 and so far I have heard nothing?

Which website is that? (the points for occupation and work experience look
wrong to me).

Look at the DIMIA website for the skilled points test and re-work your points:
http://www.immi.gov.au/allforms/skl-pts.htm

But in the light of the requirements in the Skilled Migration booklet, it's going to
be difficult if you have no degree.
