    Unhappy Post study work visa - employer assisted (2 year) - skilled 4

    Hi, I've finished my studies in Master of Professional Account(level8/9). I'm now on post study work visa(open), recently i managed to secure a permanent full time position relevant to my studies.
    However, i tried matching the job description on ANZSCO. This role is more likely to be classified as a skilled 4 accounting role, so SMC is not likely to happened. I am thinking of applying for Post study work visa - employer assisted (2 year). However, my immigration adviser had told me the 2 most important criteria of this visa.

    WD1.5 Relevance of qualification(s) to employment
    Qualifications are relevant to employment if:

    • the major subject area and level of the principal applicant's recognised qualification is directly applicable to the employment; and
    • the immigration officer is satisfied that the qualification was a key factor in the employer's decision to employ the principal applicant in that position.



    Where the major subject area can be consider as finance/accounting relevant. He thinks that it is possible INZ will challenge as my qualification is "too high" for this skilled 4 role.??

    Furthermore, how do i prove to the immigration officer that employer hired me because of my qualification ?(members of my team mostly does not possessed a bachelor/master degree in finance/accounting) ?

    It is really demoralizing, no decent company will hire me as an accountant because i lack the NZ experience. Which i don't have a problem because i can build up the experience at lower level and a couple of years later when i gained the necessary experience, i'll move on from there. But now they are telling me, my qualification is too high for low skiled position ?( does INZ really understand the labour market in NZ ?)

    Any advice will be appreciated.
    Thanks

    Well u need provide skill much report for lvl 4.. However as sum up situation NZ will give u very tiny chance to get essential skill work visa under lvl 4, because they want more kiwi to work on this positions. look forum alot of people were rejected due not enough evidence they employee thry recrui kiwi, even they provide alot of details.

    Ask the employer to say why he wants to hire you.

    You got a Level 9 which is pretty awesome and you wanna down your qualifications until a level 4?
    As far as I remember, Level 3 to 5 are really low level in NZ, and it's usually reserved for local people.

    If I remember to get a post study work visa we need to study 2years for a level between 4 and 6 or 1year in a level7, so it probably means like "mmm" said. There is no reason to hire foreigner for entry/low skilled jobs.
    The only low level I know it's valuable is about cooking.

    PS: When I was in NZ, I was working in a part-time job, and the boss of my department had a lower level than me. He only got a Bachelor's degree last year. It seems like in NZ, experience is more important than the level of your qualification. Maybe I'm wrong, but it was what I felt.

    I do not want a skilled 4 job. But I can't get a skilled 1 job because employers wants nz working experience. Therefore, no matter the level of my master degree. I have to start at lower level and work upwards.
