How do foreigners find job in Singapore?

Postby jingswimmingcoach » Mon, 04 Dec 2017 10:58 pm

Hi guys, I have a korean friend who is staying in Korea is keen to get a job in Singapore.

May I ask if anyone knows how to go about getting a job here for foreigners.

Your help will be greatly appreciated.

Thank you so much in advance!

If you have LinkedIn, make sure you update it and hope job hunter will give a call for some of their MNC clients that based in SG. Another way around, google some information with key words: “work vacancy in SG”

Hi !

As mentioned before, LinkedIn is a very good tool to find a job there. Another way to get a position is to use social networks, especially Facebook ! I found a position on Facebook, thanks to a post published on an expat group

Good luck, and to forget to let us know how he found it once he's hired ;)

We bribe HRM and hiring managers. The usual deal is one months salary and or an ongoing commission. The normal way to pay this is via chips at MBS.
I not lawyer/teacher/CPA.
You've been arrested? Law Society of Singapore can provide referrals.

You can try to see if the telecom sector is hiring.
