Default Occupations Under Pressure - Applying for jobs


I've submitted an application for permanent residency under the skilled worker programme just over a year ago. Having looked at this site, however, I realised that this perhaps wasn't going to be the quickest and easiest route into Canada. So, I'm now looking at trying to get a temporary work permit and going down that route. I've checked the 'occupations under pressure list' for British Columbia and can 'fit' my skills and experience to 5 of them:-

0114 - Other administrative services managers
1211 - Supervisors, general office and admin support clerks
0111 - Financial managers
1221 - Administrative officers
1441 - Administrative clerks

My experience is essentially in an office based managerial role which is not specialised at all. I'm therefore quite doubtful that any potential employer would get a favourable LMO for such an occupation.

My partner is in the construction industry and there seems to be more of a demand for construction workers in Alberta than in BC. However, my occupation is not on the OUP list for AB.

I'd be grateful for any opinions on whether we would have better chances by trying to get a job offer for my partner in AB.

Occupations on Provincial list of occupations under pressure benefit from shorter advertising requirement (7 days instead of 3 months) compared to other occupations. That is all. If you have job offer in occupation that is not on the list then employer still can apply for and receive positive LMO (if all checks out) - just the entire process takes longer if employer didn't advertise position properly yet.
