The following EOIs were selected from the pool for validation on 8 April 2009: 446 EOIs were selected that had a points total of 140 or above:
384 with job offer
62 without job offer

96 EOIs were selected that had a points total of 100 or more but less than 140, and included points for offers of skilled employment or current skilled employment in New Zealand. 95 EOIs were selected that had a points total between 100 and 135, without a job offer, but with points claimed for work experience in an area of absolute skill shortage. 116 EOIs were selected that had a points total between 105 and 135, without a job offer, but with 10 points claimed for a qualification in an area of absolute skills shortage. 28 EOIs were selected that had a points total of 130 or more but less than 140. These EOIs did not claim points for skilled employment in New Zealand, or for work experience or a qualification in an area of absolute skills shortage. These EOIs were ranked in descending order of points. (A total of 781 EOIs were therefore selected) Conclusion: Leaving aside the EOIs in areas of Absolute Skills Shortage, only 16% of applicants managed to achieve the selection point without a job offer. Thus, 84% of ordinary applicants needed a job offer to qualify. Clearly, getting a job is of paramount importance to your application, which is where our Jobsearch Programme is best placed to help. The next selection will take place on Wednesday 22nd April 2009.
