Positive Skills Assessments
This area is one of the most complex of all and carries a large number of issues, pitfalls and dangers but likewise, it also holds opportunities for improvement. Often our clients are fantastic in their role and know how to do their job way above the Australian standards. Like many exams, it is not necessarily what you have done previously, or even what you know, but how you present that knowledge to the assessors.
Our team works hard in this area as we understand it is the foundation of everything that comes later in your 189 visa case.
There's little point being amazing if you fail to present the facts in a clear and impressive way. Assessors are busy people and they will not give you the benefit of the doubt. But bear in mind, it is also commercially advantageous for them to err on the side of rejection if it means they are likely to secure further fees when you re-apply once rejected!
