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...bigshotrob5 wrote: ↑Tue, 15 Sep 2020 10:56 amHi 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.
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!
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.
