The Australian skilled visa is issued to applicants with skills that are currently in demand. There are high demand for some specific skilled labor, which makes it difficult for those with other types of skills that are currently not in demand.
The skilled occupation list is a program setup by the Australian government which consist of skilled labors highly in demand in Australia. This list contains some positions and areas the country that are currently in need of professionals to fill up but doesn’t necessary mean you should be really worried if your skill is not on the list. There is also a list known as the ”consolidated skilled occupation list” which contains list of jobs the individual states in Australia are also currently in need of.
However, in the case of both the SOL and CSOL, it is not mandatory for you to work in any of the occupations listed as your skill. As long as your current skill is transferable and relatable, you are good to go. You can as well search for a more generic job there in Australia. The Department of Immigration and Citizenship (DIAC) is also offering a search facility that enables people to input their skills and qualifications to see the positions they will fit in which can be found at http://www.abs.gov.au/ausstats/[email protected]/Previousproducts/1220.0Search02006?opendocument
