Good point. I don't know why i didn't think about it. Oh wait a minute, I know, at the moment I have given notice to my landlord that 17th May is my last date and they have been searching for tenants like mad for more than a month now. If I tell them, I am changing my mind and want to stay back, then this time I better stay atleast till the end of the contract. In the worst case scenario that I take up the short term job contract and the long term opportunities don't materialize, I will be back to square one and the landlord will have to go through the whole trouble again.Beeroclock wrote:Why don't you consider these to buy time and try jag one of these interviews. I know the salary is a slap but it's only very short term and will give you a bit longer to try your luck here, if you decide that is worth doingWd40 wrote: The only companies that want to hire immediately are really short term contracts. I got calls for like 1.5 months contract and 3 months contract and the salary was like less than perm something like 6k. I was like WTF! are there so many desperate people in Singapore looking for jobs?
Not to mention the fact that even if I get these short term contracts, its not going to be any cakewalk there, normally for me after joining a company it takes like a month to just get to know about the project. I don't understand how can they expect me to contribute in a 1.5 or a 3 month contract .Which is why I need something solid atleast 6 months contract.
