Directly into topic as I am totally stressed and am not able to do anything because of tension. :- This is not about a specific job code, but about the scenario that I am facing. Kindly read through and give me suggestion as I think I may have to decline the long awaited ITA
* My CRS score is 445 and got the ITA in the last draw where the required score was 441. I can get 11 more points in a month after completion of my wife ECA and IELTS, totalling 457.
* I had given my NOC code as 2171, as I found ‘Management Information System’ Analyst in the job description and my role in the company is the same. The NOC description is given below and I have bolded relevant points.
2171 – Information systems analysts and consultants
Information systems analysts and consultants analyze systems requirements, develop and implement information systems development plans, policies and procedures, and provide advice on a wide range of information systems issues. They are employed in information technology consulting firms and in information technology units throughout the private and public sectors, or they may be self-employed.
computer systems analyst
informatics security analyst
information systems business analyst
information systems quality assurance analyst
IT (information technology) consultant
management information systems (MIS) analyst
systems security analyst
Information systems business analysts and consultants confer with clients to identify and document requirements, conduct business and technical studies, design, develop, integrate and implement information systems business solutions, and provide advice on information systems strategy, policy, management, security and service delivery. – I have quoted only relevant duty related with management information systems (MIS) analyst.
A bachelor’s degree in computer science, computer systems engineering, software engineering, business administration or a related discipline
“”Completion of a college program in computer science is usually required
Experience as a computer programmer is usually required.
Certification or training provided by software vendors may be required by some employers.”” – – Can’t support these.
I am a Commerce bachelor (B.Com) and not a bachelor in business administration. But I have MBA (Master of Business Administration). But I read and heard now that 2171 is more for Engineering graduates.
Now the problem is that I had updated 2171 by just seeing the Title at the time of updating express entry profile. Eventhough I do MIS works, now I do more of accounts related works( Yes, MIS people do some account works in my company) which has the code 1431, which is not at all a match with job code 2171. The chances of getting a matching code reference letter for 2171 is less.
My consultant is now saying (and I read a lot in canadavisa forum) that 2171 is more for guys who are into programming and deeply into computers. I think and mostly sure that I will get rejected if I use job code 2171. Instead, I want to change it to 1431 (Billing clerk). But my manager will not mention that I am a billing clerk (as I am a MIS analyst on paper), but he might give exact roles of 1431.
1. Should I take a chance by continuing with current profile?
2. If I change my job code to entirely different one (I got the ITA already), I will get rejected because I cannot support it in LOE, isn’t it?
3. I am planning to decline this ITA and wait for a next one. As I can make my score into 457 in around a month, is it a better idea to decline? Can I expect an ITA in some months?
4. If I put a different NOC in next express entry profile (that I am going to create after declining the current one) and if I get ITA, will CIC verify my current profile and find the mismatch? i mean, will CIC check the declined profile and find that the job code entered in the new profile is entirely different from the old one and will kick out my profile if at all I receive an ITA again?
5. Chances of getting ITA after rejecting one is lesser?
Kindly reply (all of my queries if possible) as me and my family are fully tensed and do not know what to do.
