Re: Looking for work - but why Singapore?

He didn't actually say he was looking for a position in the IT industry. It would pay you to actually read the thread rather than scanning the last post or two. You wouldn't look quite so blur that way and maybe even taken seriously at some point. Based on your posts up to this point, you are certai...

Re: Looking for work - but why Singapore?

Maybe Strong Eagle will see this thread when he gets out of bed. He ran his own project management business here for around 8 years in the IT industry (region-wide) so will be able to give you even more insight (he's been back in the US for around 3 or 4 years but still moderates here as well (he's ...

Re: Looking for work - but why Singapore?

I'd give it a try, yes. Provided I had other reasons for wanting it as well. But I would definitely not come here without a Plan B or having feelers out in other countries as a backup. At your level, it could well take a while and waiting here is expensive. The other problem is that unless you actua...

Re: Looking for work - but why Singapore?

Sure. IF you can convince the MOM that your skills are transferable into an absolutely different environment as opposed to hiring a local with the right industry skillsets assuming both have some years of experience. The problem here is that there has been a pogrom against foreign talent here taking...

Re: Ask a doctor FREE in Singapore!

A city scan? What would you need a hospital here for? Or, did you mean a CT (CAT) Scan? If so just go to Singapore General Hospital.

Re: Looking for work - but why Singapore?

Ford, the only motor company here closed up their door in the late 1970's. Not much reason to migrate here with that kind of background unless you are a dab hand with a wrench and work for VERY cheap wages.

Re: Applying citizenship but unable to book appointment

The only way a slot will show up earlier is if somebody finally realizes Singapore is just not worth it, so they withdraw their application. When that happens, there will be dozens of rubes waiting early in the mornings checking for that opening and the fastest fingers win.

Re: EP Processing Time 2018

3 days to 3 months. Even for those who have been here before. Now they are revetting the documentation a lot more closely than then used to do.

Re: My Singapore PR REP got rejected

That raises an interesting question. Lets say you are a 2nd generation PR that has done NS then gone back to the "home" country to do university. Technically they wouldnt be eligible for a REP even though they have done NS. Any idea what would happen? Once you have completed NS,the equati...

Re: PR chance evaluation

And who told you that? Length of time has no correlation to approval or rejection. If you have read enough threads here you would already know that.

Re: ENDLESS OPERATION FOR PUS FOUND IN LEG

No. Eventually, they will have to amputate his leg, like so many diabetics, who refuse to abide by the doctor's advice with regard to diet.

Re: PR Application, how bad are my chances

Pass type isn't really an issue. Salary at least 4.5 to 5K sufficient. We see this all the time. Nationality is your big problem. I don't like to say it, but facts be facts. I just lost a young man who has been with my company for 8 years. He's Malaysian and was on a WP and making less than 3K. His ...

Re: SIA cabin crew

If you can get your measurements early in the morning, you can be up to .75cm taller than you will be later in the afternoon. This is due to the cushioning in between your vertebrate in your backbone. At night those cushions replenish themselves with body fluids like a sponge pad. After carrying you...
