Canada Express Entry—How to Increase Your Chances of Getting Selected from the Pool!
From January 1, 2015 Canada Express Entry has officially become operational. The response to the programme so far has been phenomenal. Here below are given some tips to do well in the Express Entry Pool and get bounced out unhurt.
1. Language Testing is important
Minus an official language test from any of these, namely, IELTS or CELPIP, you will not manage to sail past the gatekeeper wizard to even start concluding your profile. It is essential that your language scores are in hand when you begin the first screening procedure. In case you are not armed with the scores, it’s futile to waste your time even beginning to fill out the first few questions with the reason being you will be blocked inside the first some screens.
In addition, you need to keep in mind that currently the CIC does not prefer the previous CELPIP-G tests. You ought to be writing the CELPIP – General 2014. In case your CELPIP exam does not clearly specify CELPIP-General 2014, you will learn you are in the right place as the drop down choices the EE portal proffers you will match up to your scores.
2. LMIAs governs the Express Entry world
It must be clearly seen from the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) by now that those having an employment offer–duly confirmed by a standard or permanent LMIA will most surely be proffered an Invitation to Apply (ITA) for Permanent Residence (PR) in the Maple Leaf Country. But not having one is nota reason why you must NOT apply under Express Entry! Despite job offers—duly backed by an LMIA–gather 600 points towards the utmost 1200 within the CRS, the CIC has pointed out frequently that they look forward to attracting people with high human capital &no LMIA in the starting draws.
3. Strictly avoid misrepresentation on your petition
Since there is no need whatsoever of any documentation at this stage, some will be rather motivated to put forward a profile that is not “entirely correct” with a view to find a high spot on the CRS. Avoid this as it won’t pay!
4. Express Entry wizard not be trusted
Sooner than later you will find out that in case you fail to conclude some specific sections of the Express Entry profile, your “Status” for that section will read “In Progress”. In case the section is 100% complete, it will read “Complete”. Despite the fact that this is all nice and good, a malfunction was seen in the system where in some particular cases, the Status read “Complete” with a good vertical row of green “Completes” for each form when some extra information still needed to be furnished.
5. Get some trustworthy person to proof read your profile prior to you present the same
It hardly matters who you are never, ever out forward your profile minus allowing it been reviewed by someone you trust. In spite of the fact that several of the fields are “drop-down” type menus, with restricted “fill able form” fields, still ample of room is there for people to fail to notice things.
Unlike the first-in, first-out arrangement that the CIC duly followed before, where petitions would get bounced as they were not fully complete–or the innocent old days when they would mail excellent deficiency letters and requesting people to bring up to date the file with anything that was thought missing–Express Entry will be a mean administrator.
In case you commit an error in your profile–via choosing the incorrect drop down item, or fail to remember to put in your LMIA issue & dates of expiry–no one will come to your rescue on the other side to indicate your fault. The CRS just reviews the statistics presented before it, and then utilizes the same to rank you against the raw data of another candidate. The same does not give counsel.
