Not much chance. HR is one category the government keeps for SC.

Headhunting may be ok.

By "there" you mean you are not in SG. Your chances are 0.

Thanks for the suggestions PNGMK and Wd40.

There were some consultants in India promising on the jobs over there by extracting money...i knew on this information about the rules being strict, wanted to know from the people over there...so i can take some careful steps for my future career path.

And Yes Wd40, i am not in Singapore, currently in India.

Thanks

Pragna

Unless you are some extraordinarily gifted recruitment person the answer is a resounding NO!
To get there early is on time and showing up on time is late

And that extraordinarily gifted recruitment person better be coming over at the behest of the overseas parent company to head up their new office in Singapore. It's about the only why I've seen it done in recent years. But back in the day, it was distinctly possible, but too much abuse has pretty well nicked that permanently. (Back in the day means in the 1990's).

My employer and previous employer both had expat HR people - to manage the expats. I suspect they weren't called "HR" on their MOM applications for work passes/permits though - probably 'relocation' or 'expat assistance' or some other weasel word.
