This helps them to cope with the demands of the labor flow inside the country. This Skill Select is like a pre-stored database of talents and skill sets and serves as a platform to analyze the skill of an applicant. For entering into this Skill Select, the applicant has to have an Expression of Interest (EOI) document which has their nominated Skilled Occupation List (SOL) based on their Skill Set. The applicant has to get their skills assessed in a designated evaluation agency by the government and they should prove their English language skills through the exams like IELTS or PTE.
