Default Quick PNP question. Advice needed!

Hi guys, I've been in Vancouver for 2 years this May on the IEC. I now have a job as a credit analyst and the company wants to keep me.

I'm thinking of going down the PNP route once I've passed my probation in Feb.


So my question is this, does the length of employment time have any effect on me being able to apply for this?
I've been employed by them since the end of October.

Everything else is in my favour, the job was advertised for 6 months, Canadians applied and I was chosen ahead of them etc etc.



Please help!

Yea? Welcometobc.ca says this - "In order to apply under this category nominee applicants must have worked for their employer in BC, (or within the Northeast Development Region where required), full-time in an eligible occupation for a period of at least nine consecutive months immediately prior to the date their BC PNP application is submitted"

I think you are looking in the wrong place - will your employer be supporting your PNP application?

Skilled Workers would be the stream you need to look at.

Bit lost.

According to the NOC matrix your job should be skill level B NOC code 6235
http://www5.hrsdc.gc.ca/noc/english/...credit+analyst

Not sure if BC PNP class it as skilled.
Edit according to this then yes you are a skilled worker
The BC PNP will only consider applications for positions under Skill Levels O, A and B of the National Occupational Classification Matrix National Occupational Classification (NOC). These positions normally require formal post-secondary qualifications and several years of directly related work experience.

There's no need to be snippy. If you'd read the site rules when you signed up, then I wouldn't have needed to remind you of them!

If you look at my signature (or the 'newbies' thread in the main Camada forum) then it will take you to the Wiki which is full of useful info including how to work out your skill level. It also has a handy guide to forum 'netiquette'.

HTH.
