Hi ,

i am preparing to apply for my Skills assessment for 261312

Below are my queries

1) Since my employer won't provide experience summary, Do  I have to ask my supervisor to produce a document for me? If so, Can someone give me the link for the template which I need to use?

2) How would I effectively fill up that document so that all my work experience can be considered ( Tips)

3) I did Bachelors in Civil Eng. but i am working as a Software developer for 11 + years. How can I expect my skills will be assessed?

Yes. The key thing is that the letter is presented by your company on a company letterhead. The alternative is that you complete a statutory declaration.

In case of the statutory declaration,

  • Must contain the words “Sworn before” or “Signed before” or “witnessed before”
  • Signed by the authorized witness with date and place
  • Signed by the colleague at par or senior to you
  • Should be printed on Rs. 10/20 stamp paper and business or visiting card of a person signing it should be attached along with it
  • You need to also provide,
    • Offer letter/appointment letter or
    • Experience letter/service certificate or
    • Payslips from all previous organizations – one for each quarter or at the very least, first and last payslip for each company or
    • Form 16 and/or income tax returns for all the years of employment.

Templates for Stat decs can be found here: https://www.ag.gov.au/legal-system/statutory-declarations  

Hope this helps
