Re: Implied Status - PR Application

Re: Implied Status - PR Application

Ugh I was afraid of that!

I'm not sure what stage she's at, but she applied in October 2016 and seems to think she'll get it in April. She did Express Entry (I haven't spoken to her in person...

Re: Leaving address off resume

I don't tend to take someone's location into account (unless they're out of Province) when reviewing resumes, I assume that they have considered the commute and are willing to do it. I may ask them...
