What is the occupation for a business owner in form 4A for PR application?

Post by thesti » Sat, 24 Apr 2021 6:50 pm

Hi,

What is the occupation should be chosen in the 4A form for PR application if my parent is a business owner (they run a shop)?

I've tried to search for entrepreneur, business owner, shop owner, stall holder, etc.. but couldn't find anything related..

Thank you

Sales-FMCG?
Life isn't about avoiding the bruises. It's about collecting the scars to prove we showed up for it!

Hi,

There is no Sales-FMCG in the list.
Basically there is a list and we have to choose 1 of them (we cannot input something outside of the list), and I am not sure what to pick for a shop owner.

So what you are saying then, if I read your English correctly, is that your parent doesn't work at all then, (S)he just sits in a chair all day. What does he/she do? Anything? or Nothing?

If they just hired somebody to do whatever it is they do, what would you call that persons job title in the help wanted ad? What would be the job description?

Both my parents also run a shop. In the 4A form that I submitted, the occupation that I chose was "General manager in wholesale and retail trade", and the designation that I chose was "General Manager".

And that was accepted I think, as last week I received an email from ICA asking for employment history of just my brother but not that of my parents.
