File for PR with current employer or independently?

I’m a machine learning Engineer with 13 years of experience. Mater’s from IISc and MBA from IIM. I have a choice of taking up an offer in Toronto with my current employer or to go independently. What would increase my chances for EE?

Definitely having a job offer will fetch you very high points. Also its better to have a job waiting for you in Canada. Once you have a PR you can then switch.

Definitely with employer.
Adds lots of points and can expedite any PNP you might be eligible for.

Agree with the others. If the pay is good then jump on it!
