Thousands getting jobs through Australia’s SkillSelect
Australia, 18th October: Australia’s SkillSelect is rising the popularity charts by providing thousands of skilled immigrants with jobs in Australia.
SkillSelect program was introduced by Australia immigration only three months ago.
SkillSelect program—Since its introduction in Australia in July this year, it has become very popular not just among skilled workers but also among employers.
However, still, employers are not aware of various details of SkillSelect program. Every year, a large number of skilled immigrants come to Australia to work in different fields. And knowledge about working of Australia’s SkillSelect can prove helpful for employers in Australia.
The growing popularity of SkillSelect becomes evident from the fact that in the span of just three months, nearly 3,500 applications for Australian visas through SkillSelect program have been received.
And Australian immigration department –DIAC (Department of Immigration and Citizenship)—is working to get increasing number of skilled foreigners through this program, affirms first assistant secretary of the migration and visa policy division, Krun Kukoc.
Online access of Australia SkillSelect—The best thing about SkillSelect program of Australia is that employers just need to go online for finding foreign skilled workers needed for various positions of jobs in Australia. And they can get in touch with overseas skilled workers through this program to have a detailed discussion about terms of employment.
The only thing to be kept in mind by employers in Australia is to make sure they make efforts to fill such job positions by giving priority to Australians before surging ahead with hiring foreign skilled workers.
Australia SkillSelect—No guarantee of Australia visa invitation-- And another point worth notable here is that SkillSelect program does not, in any way, guarantee the issuance of any invitation for an Australian visa application since it’s a competitive system, maintained Kukoc.
Employers in Australia can move ahead with nominating a candidate for Australian employer sponsored visas. And once a skilled foreign worker has been nominated or selected by the employer or has been issued an invitation, the next step should be lodging an application for Australian visa.
Moreover, Australian employer sponsored visas are subject to the annual limit for such visas although there is no need for invitations through Australia’s SkillSelect program.
