Re: Finding employment?! Help!

LinkedIn is your best hope. The only other thing I can suggest is to make a list of multi-nationals that have offices in Singapore. Each MNC will have global job postings on their website. Maybe there is something in Singapore that might fit for you. Local recruiters are a waste of time. Imagine......

I have read a lot of reviews on Crown Relocations but have not seen much reviews of Pro Move Singapore, Asian Tigers and Orient Express. Has anyone used the...

Re: Good International Moving Company

I sorely regret hiring Raffles Relocation. This sloppy company made a nightmare of my move from Singapore to Shanghai. When my shipment arrived in Shanghai, I discovered that Raffles Relocation had broken my irreplaceable antique lamp, broken another heirloom table lamp, and broken my expensive teak...

Re: How much money needed when moving to singapore first time?

Depends how much you are going to be paying for rent?
Travel to and from work will probably cost about $5 max a day depending on where you live
Food is reasonably priced from the supermarket (a pack of 4 chicken breast = $9)

What kind of job are you taking up?

Re: What to bring over...? List of 'must have' items

An interesting thread that I'd like to reinvigorate so that I end up with a comprehensive list of 'must haves' for living in Singapore. With this I can determine what I should pack & bring over with me for my 3 year stay in a house with garden. My container space is limited to 10m - so I need to...
