PNP: Alberta Immigrant Nominee Program

Should I apply under Express Entry or wait for my AINP?

Question [Holthe Tilleman LLP website]

I am an international graduate on a three year Post Graduate Work Permit.  My work permit is going to expire in April of 2016. I submitted my application through the AINP in February of 2014 as a food service supervisor, which is still in process.

I have two questions regarding what I should do now before my work permit expires.

  1. Should I try to submit my application through Express Entry without a Labour Market Impact Assessment or continue to wait for my AINP application to be approved?
  2. My company wants to promote me to a new position as a sous chef but I do not want it because it could affect my AINP application as a food service supervisor. Should I take that position or not?
