I think you are eligible, but I'm not working for MOM and I have no liberty to assure a person's eligibility, so please do not take my answer seriously

Assuming it is for real...

SUGGESTED ANSWER REGARDING YOUR S PASS QUESTION!!! I HOPE THIS HELPS, BUT THERE'S NO NEED TO SHOUT NEXT TIME, OK???

Please use the search function and read the many other threads on similar subjects. In short, you need to have sufficient knowledge and relevant experience for a position that cannot be filled by a Singaporean in order to stand a chance of securing an employment pass. From the information you have posted, that looks doubtful TBH.

Also, please note that 'eligibility' in this context refers to eligibility to apply for an S Pass, etc. It does not imply guaranteed eligibility for the pass itself; that will be entirely at the discretion of the MOM, and they do NOT share their internal criteria with the public at large. This is a misunderstanding that has caught many people out in the past.

I'm not sure if I'm comfortable with the tone of the post. It reads either with insane desperation or total lack of internet etiquette. :-/

Either way, my answer would be 'so-so' but just my opinion. You exhibited below-average English proficiency, you're a fresh graduate, your degree is from a apparently decent school in India (is it under approved list of universities in MOM's website?) and you're right, MOM is getting very tight in pass approval.

Fresh grad from India for SGD2200/month for S Pass. Seems OK. You can try. I wonder what other regulars here would think.

Yes, but what relevant experience do you have? You just graduated recently and did then three months as an intern in a pharma company - how does that qualify you for a job in the O&G sector? Keep in mind that there are thousands of recent grads here in Singapore who are looking for their first 'proper' job.

I don't understand some people. why don't you just go apply for a job and then wait for the employer to apply for the pass for you. If it's approved, good for you but it's rejected then swallow it and move on. all this desperation and trying to convince yourself with your qualifications being recognised by MoM will do you no good until you apply for a job.

Good luck!

Jolly good, but what the MOM will be looking for in any S Pass application is what practical knowledge and experience from previous employment (if any) you will be bringing to the table. I'm just trying to get across the point that you will be one of (potentially) thousands of people trying to secure their first job after graduating - and the local folks don't need to worry about S Passes or anything like that. I'd seriously suggest that you spend some time reading through other similar threads on this board - you will also see that there has been a significant reduction in the number of passes granted to people applying from your home country.

Maybe this is not the answer you wanted to hear, but we don't BS on this site; we just tell it the way we see it. But by all means, go ahead and try if you want to - if so, kindly update this thread with the outcome.

At this point, I'm not sure if those diploma courses can help you.
How about this: try this tool from MoM -> http://sat.mom.gov.sg/satservlet

No one can guarantee the result provided by the tool and the real result, but give it a try (although 2200 for O&G is too cheap, I think).
