University - Deakin University
Program - Master of Information Technology (Professional)
Graduated - November 2018
Deakin University has a career center called DEAKIN TALENT which helps students connect with the industry during study for internships and after study for full-time jobs. The student while during the 3rd semester did internship in a company called Eastern Volunteers. It was a 3 months internship and the student did that substitute to a unit in the 3rd semester and that used to be 2 days a week and that was totally unpaid and he was doing programming then for the company.
During the 4th semester Deakin University was approached by a company (there could be several other companies too) called Make It Mine and they asked Deakin University to select 5 student applications for 2 positions and this student was one who got selected for the company. There was a panel interview and they selected 2 people and this guy is one. He says his internship experience and the reference from the internship employer helped him a lot in getting the job in Make It Mine.
He is a Software Developer with the company and is paid AUD $ 60000 per annum with 9.5% Superannuation. He says he gets on hand approx AUD $4200 per month after taxes. He will complete 1 year experience and then he will apply for Migration Skill Assessment with the Australian Computer Society. He is also sure about clearing IELTS with 8 bands in all and if that is the case his points score would be
Qualification - 15 points
Australian study - 05 points
Age (25 -32) - 30 points
1 yr IT experience in Australia - 05 points
IELTS (G) 8 in all - 20 points
Total score would be - 75 points
He would nominate himself for Software and Applications Programmers and that is running at 70 points as per pro-rata allocation now and since this guy is expecting 8 bands in all and I am sure he will, in such case he would get the invitation from the Home Affairs, Australia in the first selection round of his EOI being submitted. Happy reading and use the same while counselling folks. Have a great Sunday with family and friends.
