Default IEC Age Validity and Job Search

Hi,

I have had my IEC approved and POE letter come through. I understand the validity of activating the POE is for a year.
I was planning on activating it later this year or early next year.
I assume the IEC work permit is valid for 2 years.
My concern is around my age, I will be 30 when I potentially activate work permit.
My query is will I still be given a 2 year visa (standard duration of IEC) or only till I am 31 (as I understand that is the age group IEC is targeted at)?

I had an additional query around the IEC and job searching, do employers normally want proof of an active work visa (as I understand POE isnt proof of a visa) or will they be satisfied with my IEC being approved provisionally to take me seriously for a job?
Basically, is it worth me job searching yet, or should I activate the work permit first?

As long as you get the POE letter and activate it in the timeframe identified on the letter then you will get a 2 year open work permit. Up to the employer if they would give you/hire you before having the actual work permit in hand a a temp Social Insurance Number. Many won't.
