You seem to have all the answers. Why, therefore, are you being rejected when you have all the answers?

Don't take it personally, SE is just voicing what MOM is going to think when they (likely) reject the app. And even if you're really legit, MOM gets 9-10 scammers with the same setup for every legit application coming in.

Congratulations on getting the EP!

What did you do differently on your 2nd application?
I assume the salary was higher, how much more percentage-wise?

Good luck with your business!

The application was exactly the same on the 2nd time, but the salary was increased about 20% and title changed to match better my education and past work experience. I guess it was the combination of the two that made it go through.
