Hello everyone,

My local friends encouraged me to apply for PR, saying that I have a decent shot given that the government would want to retain talent in AI field, and that I also studied here, and may continue further education here. But after reading around and looking at posts here, I think the chances are slimmer than they appear to be. What would my chances be?

My background
- Age: 22
- Race: Chinese
- Nationality: Vietnam
- Gender: Male
- Marital Status: Single
- Education: NUS Computing (Computer Science)
- Industry: Tech Industry (AI / Machine Learning)
- Position: Data Scientist/ ML Engineer
- Job Experience: Fresh Grad, worked <1 year
- EP Pass holder
- Salary: 6k/month
- Lived in Singapore: from 2016
- I've got 3 years of Service Obligation Bond on Tuition Grant Scheme

I have a few other questions if you can help answer based on what you've seen:
- Would the company I work for the matter? I.e Google, Facebook, etc?
- If low chance, what are the main reasons? and when should I apply?
----- After how many years of working in SG?
----- Salary too low? What's a good range?
- If I'm considering doing a local Ph.D. in 2 years time, will that lessen my chances if I apply when I'm in the PhD program, given that during that time I'm not earning a decent income, and might not do so, during the 4-5 years I'm in the program. I know after the Ph.D., it is very likely to get it on the first try, based on people I know working at my company.
- If I give it a shot anyway and get rejected, will it hurt or strengthen my future apps.

Personally one of the main reasons why I would want to pursue a PR is the security it gives me if I were to found a startup/ take a break from my Ph.D. program and work on side projects.
Any thoughts? Should I give this a shot this year (if you've seen people in similar situations as me that worked), or it's pretty much impossible. Even if it is, and I get rejected, will it show a stronger will to stay when I apply later on. I'm concerned that if I'm in the PhD program, and the government is unlikely to grant me a PR because I'm not making any income, then I would have to wait another 4-6 years till I'll hold a proper job again. On the other hand, I might consider continuing to working some number of years (2-3), see if I can get PR or not, before deciding what course I should take.

Hi everyone!

I would like to confirm if its true that volunteering in non-government organization can help get PR for races belonging to “others”?

Thank you!
