Hey All, this is an announcement just received concerning a new initiative to match general skilled migration applicants with vacancies.
Let’s hope it works :-)
Job matching service for skilled migrants
The Department of Employment and Workplace Relations (DEWR) recently released a new web-based service that allows eligible migrant jobseekers to register a migrant vocational profile (MVP) and be matched to Migration Occupation in Demand List (MODL) vacancies lodged on Australian JobSearch that cannot be filled from the Australian labour market. This initiative is associated with the 2005-2006 Migration Programme.
The MVP service will be offered to principal applicants in selected General Skilled Migration (GSM) categories and is not available to accompanying spouses or dependants. This includes:
– Skilled Independent (subclass 136)
– Skilled Area Sponsored (subclass 138)
– Skilled Independent Overseas Student (subclass 880) and
– the Skilled Australian Sponsored Overseas Student (subclass 881).
From late April 2006, DIMA will contact eligible skilled migrants by email or post to invite them to complete an MVP (outlining their work history and qualifications) on DEWRs website at www.skilledmigrant.gov.au
