Searching For A Job In Singapore As An Expat

Post by serafeine » Tue, 06 Apr 2021 3:31 pm

Hi everyone!

I graduated nine months ago in Singapore and have not got even a single lead regarding jobs.

Am I doing something wrong? Can you share how you landed a position in Singapore while Covid is going on?

I see people getting jobs, EP and S Passes and I feel like I’m not doing something right.
Please share experience and advice.

My son (SC) has only had nibbles. Market is v poor.
I not lawyer/teacher/CPA.
You've been arrested? Law Society of Singapore can provide referrals.
You want an International School job? School website or http://www.ISS.edu
Your rugrat needs a School? Avoid for profit schools
You need Tax advice? Ask a CPA
You ran away without doing NS? Shame on you!

While looking for a job, don't forget to attend courses to upskill yourself! If you do get interviews, remember to do research or even come up with a presentation or document to show the company you are very interested in the job.

Getting a job really boils down to what you have on your resume, have you been active during your uni days and also how you portray yourself during the interview, you need to show the passion you have towards this role, etc.

Best of luck to you!
