How to choose the right topics for your Career Episodes? Say you have several projects you have took part in the past and you don’t know what project would be more suitable for Career Episodes. In this case you need to choose the project that would cover majority of responsibilities described in your ANZSCO code description for migration.

At the same time projects you chosen to describe in your Career Episodes need to cover as many competencies as possible from your Summary Statement. Requirements for Summary Statement are available from Engineers Australia (EA) booklet. Please download the booklet from Engineers Australia website – see “migration skills assessment” section. By the end of the booklet description of all indicators is given per Occupational Category.

If you don’t know how to approach writing your Career Episodes, start from the beginning: Introduction and Background sections are quite straightforward. On page 18-19 of the EA booklet there is an exact description of what you need to include in these sections of your Career Episodes and how long each section should be.

The hardest part of the Career Episode is the Personal Engineering Activity part. In the Background section, there is a requirement to provide a statement of your duties.

You can start writing the Personal Engineering Activity part of the Career Episode by expanding each of these duties paying special attention that design related activities are described particularly well.
