Essential Skills before SMC
Hi Mike,

I am currently on an Essential Skills temporary work visa that will expire around the end of February 2018 and preparing to apply for a SMC; the time frame to be granted a SMC though is larger than the remaining 5+ months on a valid visa (also add 1+ month to sit a language test), I am therefore considering to re-apply for an Essential Skills -- for which the time frame should be less than 1 month -- and lodge an EOI right after that.
Can you see any problem in this approach? Do you have any suggestions for a better move?
Thanks a lot for your time!

Essential Skills - Variation of conditions
Hello,
I know that under an Essential Skills Visa if your conditions change you need to apply for a Variation of Conditions; what I would like to understand is if, in your experience, when changing the employer for no special reason -- that is for example just for a career move rather than a forced event like the company going bankrupt --the process is still straightforward and the variation is somehow "guaranteed" given that all other visa conditions remain unchanged. Of course I know that there's no such concept as guaranteed when talking about visas ;-) 
I am asking because I am not sure whether a career move is consistent with the intent of the Essential Skills visa. 
Thanks

Federico
