  • Anna Carolina


    I would like to know if it is worth submitting my EOI for Systems Analyst now, knowing that they might only give new invitations for this profession from July on – is it better to wait and submit my EOI in July, or is it better to do it now so that i’ll be on the “waiting” list ?

    Thanks in advance!
