Default Vetassess skills assessment negative

Hi there,

I received a negative skills assessment outcome for "Hotel Manager". My Hotel Management degree obtained in Germany in 2004 was assessed positively, however my work experience was not seen as highly relevant to the nominated occupation.
As it only goes back 5 years from now on I used:
Assistant Hotel Finance & Accounts Manager. I provided a detailed reference letter covering all ANZSCO tasks for "Hotel Manager". (I was also doing regular Duty Manager shifts.) Not accepted by Vetassess

I am currently in Australia on my 2nd Working Holiday Visa and have been working as a Duty Manager for 6 months (this employment was accepted, but insufficient as 1 year minimum requirement.

I have a 2-year gap within the last 5 years as I took a "career break".

I was working in Duty Manager positions before 5 years back -Hospitality Management career including apprenticeship since 1997. A detailed resume was also sent to Vetassess.

I already went for reassessment and provided more documents for the Assistant Hotel Finance & Accounts Manager position including a statutory declaration explaining the amount of Duty Manager tasks involved.

In case of a negative outcome I have the option to go for an appeal. No further documents can be provided.
Is this all a waste of money? It seems Vetassess can do/decide whatever they want.

I can't predict what VETASSES will do, but it might be a good idea to develop a plan B in case the assessment remains negative. Not sure if you will have enough time on your current visa to wait the outcome of an appeal ?

Thanks for your reply. My current visa expires on the 30th Jan 2013, so I should have enough time for an appeal. Apparently it takes up to 8 weeks.

I was just wondering about the assessment procedure. With the reassessment would it be assessed by the same person?
Appeal - same again?

Hi nvoorst,

I want to apply for assessment under Marketing Specialist occupation of CSOL as I want to apply under 457 Temporary Skilled Worker Visa.I have a sponsor from employer but he said I need assessment first.

Am I illegible for VETASSESS assessment as Marketing Specialist?
