With each passing year the government assesses the needs of the country resting on the employment market study for narrowing down and determining where exactly the shortages are and which occupants here require to work in filling for catering the market needs. It is in this manner as to how the Consolidated Skilled Occupation List is born as well as maintained. In fact, every year occupations is added and removed resting on the market demand. This indicates that if one’s occupation is present on the list, their occupation will be in high demand in the country.
