Hi all,

Been lurking on this forum for some time now and have found the conversations very helpful. Am now considering applying for PR so want to get a sense of how you guys think I would fare if I were to apply for PR later this year.

Nationality: Indian
Age: 26
Race: Indian
Religion: Hindu
Education: BA in Economics from top 20 university in US
Works as a Senior Associate at a venture capital firm, started as analyst and was promoted to Associate in about 1 year, have since been promoted to Senior Associate. Been with my firm since Jan 2018 but was working abroad. Got an EP in August 2018 and have been on that since then. My EP was also renewed in May
Salary: $90K annually
Been volunteering infrequently outside of work but am founding member of my company's foundation that will look to work with underprivileged students in Singapore.

Looking forward to your feedback. Thanks everyone!
I always get a bit suspect when people tell me they went to a top university without giving the name or the class of degree. You know, I went to Harvard, but then it was only for one night of drinking... I left the next day. Snarky I know...

Back to the matter at hand.

Your ethnicity stands against you. You need to compare yourself to others in your cohort. 20s, Indian, undergraduate.
When you compare against your cohort of 26 year old Indians, you are actually poorly qualified. Many professionals from India have undergraduate degrees in a science degree, and then some fancy masters or MBA.
Your salary is low.
If you worked since August 2018, you have only been here 2 years.
Volunteering doesn't help from what people on this forum say.

Looking at gahmen policy, unless you are working in investments which is related to a government priority - fintech, advanced tech, you are just another finance dude. Singapore already has too many of those.

Chance may be close to Nil at the moment. Already replied to your post in Jan and still you posted the same again
Hi singaporeflyer, would you mind sharing some of the reasoning why? I've also updated some of the key information in my post (salary, position). Thanks!
Reason
Ethnicity
Short work/stay in SG
Not in a occupation that is in great demand in SG

Hi all,
One of our friend having PR application pending like us have their submit additional document box on their application page missing. I read in the forums earlier that it indicates chance for approval. Is it true?

No. the clerk is just making sure he has everything in order. nothing to do with decision.
I not lawyer/teacher/CPA.
You've been arrested? Law Society of Singapore can provide referrals.
You want an International School job? School website or http://www.ISS.edu
Your rugrat needs a School? Avoid for profit schools
You need Tax advice? Ask a CPA
You ran away without doing NS? Shame on you!

I believe it might indicate a decision has been made - I tracked this as well for my recent application (checking daily). Please let us know if the result comes out in the next two weeks.

Mine went missing, and then 3 days later the IPA letter arrived. Then 1 day after the IPA letter arrived, the status in the portal updated.

I would caution that I'm not sure it means a good result - I believe it may mean there is a result, good or bad.

Like SF, I suspect your chances are going to be low. However, if you really a better chance of PR, then get your husband to employ a load of Singaporeans.
