I am currently on a 457 visa. I am aware of the two options to apply for Australian permanent residency: 1. Temporary Residence Transition stream: As I've only worked for the company for 6 months, I dont't qualify for the Temporary Residence Transition stream, as I understand two years of employment under my current 457 visa and employer are required. 2. Direct Entry stream: I understand that this will require me to pass a skills assessment for my nominated positions Marketing Specialist-225113 which will not be a problem. The other requirement is "at least three years of relevant work experience". My question is what exaclty refers to as relevant experience? I have worked in various customer service, sales & administrative positions in the past before I started my job as Marketing Specialist under my sponsorship. My other question is how many working hours do exactly constitute a year of work experience. Can part-time experience be counted? Appreciate your help!!
