THINGS YOU SHOULD REMEMBER.
1.) Did you know that choosing the right National Occupational Classification (NOC) code is one of the most important parts of your immigration application. Whether you’re applying through the federal Express Entry system, or to one of many Provincial Nominee Programs (PNPs).
2.) Make sure that your NOC code matches your work experience, and that you have documentation to prove it. If you claim a NOC code that doesn’t actually match your work experience, your application will be refused or returned to you.
3.) Always remember that your work experience has to match the lead statement, and you should have performed most of the duties and responsibilities listed. Because of that, your work experience might fall under a couple of different NOC codes, or your official job title might be associated with a NOC code that doesn’t actually match your experience. When you’re choosing your NOC code for immigration purposes, your actual job title and education are not important.
