Hey guys, I have an amateur question or two if its ok... What exactly is the definition of 'Entry level'... no experience? 2 years? 3 years...? Also if some of you don't mind sharing, did you manage to find your job in Singapore from abroad (outside of Singapore) or while you were there in person al...

This is actually really funny, I don't normally respond to threads on this forum but I really can't help but say something here. Vegasripper I was in an identical situation as you were when I was about 21 or 22, I was dying to move to Singapore because my then girlfriend was from there and lived the...

Wow thanks for the feedback. I'll definitely look into that with job websites and agencies. Hope this will all work out, at least I've defined an industry/field in which I want to work in and see my market value in it, thanks. :)

That was very very useful. As you say you do seem to be further down the line, you probably do have a lot more working experience than me too seeing how they flew someone there to offer you the job, there is no chance of that happening to me with my current experience. Anyway I will certainly look i...

SE, thanks for your answer, brutal but true. I am the sort of person that doesn't get carried away easily anyway so even if I did get a real positive answer, things are always more difficult than anticipated, thats what I've learnt for sure. This might be a little bit out of context but before my jo...

Sorry guys, just thought of another question, I'm really looking for at least $2500 in pay. I did hear of companies offering $2000 for foreigners and telling them it's sufficient to live off. I know it would be sufficient to live off but you would have to be the stingiest person on earth. $2500 woul...

Thanks for the tip SE, I do remember trying it a year ago and I did say I'd qualify, I just tried it again and it said no different. :D

Wow thanks for the positive and useful replies! Money - i am current in the Event management industry I suppose but I work at an institution. Yes I would like to live there for personal reasons too and I'm pretty bored and tired of living in HK, there really is nothing to do here. A lot of people sa...

Hey romanopizza, What I read in this forum previously suggested that physically moving there does not increase your chances of getting employed. Just because you're there does not mean you're a citizen or any better qualified than if you weren't there. But I get your point, I would physically move t...

Trying my luck within a month or two

Hi all, I've made a few posts here before regarding job hunting from abroad. Obviously responses from the year 2009 have been rather negative due to obvious reasons like the economy. It is 2010 right now afterall, although it is still January, the economy seems to be picking up. I did ask this quest...

That's exactly what I've always bared in mind about myself and think I stand a chance. I could be a bit too hopeful but at the same time I'm not expecting anything spectacular. International exposure in working you mean? I think international exposure growing up period counts for itself. My job righ...
