Hey Guys,

I am confused in choosing the appropriate NOC for this job title/requirements. Which one would be appropriate? Thanks in advance.

Job Title: Software/SQL Developer

*• Execution of unit and acceptance testing. *
*• Utilization of the automated test infrastructure for the project. *
*• Identification of application code for reuse. *
*• Implement MVVM design pattern in JavaScript using Kendo MVVM framework. *

My NOC codes are different with few months break, so I’m not sure which NOC code I need to use when filling my express entry profile for better score. As I read On Canada.Ca website for express entry eligibility, it mentions the job related NOC code has to be Continuous and full-time. Can someone please suggest? Also does the title of our roles on paper should be exactly listed under the NOC list ?

Hello Fam,

Trust we are all well? Please I have a question concerning picking NOC , I’ll be grateful for your insight.

In this NOC I did the 2 only duties listed under the heading ’ science policy and program officers '. Is it safe to use this as my NOC or must a person also perform duties listed under other sections including ’ Ergonomists or human factors specialists ', ’ Occupational or industrial hygienists ', ‘Science policy and program officers’ etc before he/she can use this NOC?

My undergrad degree is in Mechanical Engineering after which I joined an IT Company as a Systems Engineer. But my job duties listed according to the company closely matches to NOC Code 2171-- Information systems analysts and consultants. I have almost 3 years of experience with this company. It would be great if someone could help me with the below questions.

a) Since My undergrad degree is different from the educational requirements of NOC Code 2171 (this mainly involves computer science engineering), will it be a problem if I put my undergrad graduation date as date of qualification?

b) Since my Job title is a Systems Engineer, will it be a issue if I select NOC code 2171, or should I go for something else.

Plaese help.

I recently got job with the title of ‘electrical technician associate’. I asked HR person for NOC code and she said we dont know. Can anyone help me to find NOC code? Does it fall in Category B ?

Hey guys,

I have experience as a computer programmer(A) for 2 years 10 months and system admin(B) for 1 year 8 months in total.

So for this question in particular “In the last 10 years, how many total years of skilled work experience do you have?
It must have been paid, full-time (or an equal amount in part-time), and in only one occupation (NOC skill type 0, A or B).” Should I choose 3+ years totaling the experience or just 2 years 10 months which is the highest?

Thanks for your help.

Hi, I’ve worked under same noc code 6235 (FSR) but in 2 different designations (job promotion). Now my current manager is giving me 2 reference letters for 2 designations. My question is that most of the job duties of these 2 letters are exactly the same i.e. 6 common job duties in both letters out of a total of 10. Will that create any problem. If yes, any way out?

PS- My manager is friendly to me.

Hello Harsh,

Hope you are doing good. What was your decision on this? What did you do? What do you suggest too?

Hi all,

need your feedback on this.

I have a query after observing my GCMS notes.
I had more than 4 years of work experience (different NOC’s) in all at the time of submitting the application.
My first occupation lasted for 7 months for which I didn’t intend to claim points however gave all the details as reference letter, payslip etc as part of work history.
Now this NOC & Occupation of 7 months reflects as the primary occupation on the gcms and doesn’t meet the requirement of 1 year.

I have other NoC that has higher experience I.e 2+ years which is my current occupation and suppose to be Primary occupation.

(Note: I have made the blunder on not clarifying the primary occupation in the start, mistakenly has provided my first occupation)

I wanted to know, can I clarify through LOE via webform to consider my primary occupation with highest experience NOC at this point?
I have previously submitted all credentials to substantiate for all the occupations.

AOR - Feb 2020

Dear Sir or Madam,

I am writing to you to express my interest in applying in the SINP-Express Entry (NOC 2231 - Civil Engineering Technologists and Technicians)

I created my account but I am not clear regarding how many points will I get for work experience.

My work experience is as follows:

  • I am working (full time) as Civil Engineering Technologists and Technicians from January 2015 till now;

  • I had worked as full time Post-secondary teaching and research assistants at a Private University (Faculty of Civil Engineering) from November 2012 to September 2014. The problem is that this university is now closed in my country, so it is a bit difficult for me to get reference letter from it. I can gather all documents that certified that I was employed as a Post-secondary teaching and research assistants during that time from my Government;

  • I had worked (full time) as Civil Engineering Technologists and Technicians from February to October 2012;

  • I had worked (part time) as Post-secondary teaching and research assistants at Polytechnic University (Faculty of Civil Engineering) from September 2011 to July 2013.

Is it right to calculate my work experience as Post-secondary teaching and research assistants in the Faculty of Civil Engineering in the total experience?

Should I select 8 years or 9 years? (My work experience is 8 years and 6 months)

I am looking forward for your kind reply,

Kind regards,

Hey Himanshu.

Were you able to prove it, buddy?
I have the same story.

Can we connect?

Bro thanks alot for your reply.

I just want to know for someone who is a social media entrepreneur, do you have any idea what the NOC code can be or something close. Thanks
