Re: EP approval query

Thanks for your free advice. Probably, I made a mistake while phrasing. Two separate points I was trying to make here - the comment regarding learning capability wasn't related to job search, I don't need to understand difference between being egoistic and being confident - In fact I got tremendous...

Hanging

CNA and the Straits Times barely mentioned the hanging today. Do locals not care or is it press freedom issues?

Re: Bye Bye Singapore

As the title suggests it's bye bye from me. After nearly 15 years my journey has come to an end. Thanks to all the mods who initially helped me out all those years ago and whilst I haven't really been active these last few years on here, I did pop on occasionally to see what was going on. Sadly wat...

Re: Mass exodus

There is zero reason for Europeans or Americans to move this short sighted country run by anal power hungry idiots. Having just come back from Europe this place is the shits. While a lot of the West was going to shit in 2020 I was quite thankful to be in Singapore. However, I think the tides turned...

Re: Please advised on how to get teachers

I am trying to recruit part time or full time native English teachers. Any suggestion where is the best place to source for it? You can advertise positions and at the same time search for candidates on Linkedln. You could look for profiles on Tefl.com This site might be useful: https://www.teachawa...

Re: Current EP Situation

Thanks for sharing your thoughts. This is also my impression so far. Pre pandemic I never had issues to land at least some interviews in Singapore - but currently zero reply. Hence my question if companies even go for new EPs nowadays. Some openly announced they don't hire overseas candidates due t...

Imported csses

What is up with the unhealthy obsession with imported cases? It is so toxic. The vast majority are Singaporeans, PR or Long term pass holders and not even tourists. I actually feel sorry for the government ministers (pay aside) for having to put up with such ignorance. Sent from my iPhone using Tapa...

Don't think the family of Dr. Li Wenliang would much agree with your statement.
