As a chemical engineer you should have no problem securing a job and MoM will likely grant you a pass but it is not that TG provides any entitlement for the pass - not from our experience at least. It can still be refused. If you were educated in a domain where many locals compete for a job or had a bad luck choosing some shady employer, the application may be rejected.
Ah okay, thanks for the clarification. Anyway, may I ask how does one obtain his/her Notice of Assessment? Is it automatically given after 6 months of employment or what? I'll probably start work in August 2018 and if I wait 6 months, I'd apply on February 2019... will I have 2 NOAs for both 2018 and 2019? I need clarification for this.
Or do I just need to sign the last page of the PR application form (Appendix 1 (PR-PTS)) in lieu of this?
Also, is there any disadvantage of having your first PR application rejected should I apply after just 6 months, or do I have nothing to lose if my first time is rejected? As in, it's recommended I wait 2-3 years upon employment but if I can get it earlier with nothing to lose, I'd apply after 6 months of working, and if that's rejected in let's say 6 months, I can wait another year or two upon receiving the rejection letter before applying again as I'd have 2-3 years of employment by then.
