Welcome to the forum. I will have to be honest and nice with you about this one.WCUSA wrote:I'm currently considering a relocation to Singapore with my SO after I graduate in May 2015, and was hopeful I could get some guidance from some of you on what I would expect job/career wise if I do.
I'm a white , Male, US citizen. In May 2015, I'll be graduating with both a MBA and a Master of Hotel Administration from a highly ranked US university program (hotel program is the better known of the two). I have roughly six years worth of experience working in hotels, with the last two primarily as a independent hospitality consultant in the US market. The other four were primarily with a resort operator who only has properties on the west coast of the US. My experience in the industry runs from finance, marketing, to operations. I'm looking to relocate to the Asia region for a period of 2-3 years, and afterwards likely move back to the US as I feel it'd be best for my long term career prospects. Singapore is first in consideration, followed closely by HK, Shanghai. To a lesser extent Taiwan, Korea, and Japan are also being considered. I currently only speak English, and conversational Spanish.
1) What kind of job prospects could I expect with my education level and experience if I were to move to Singapore?
2) Is there a rough salary range I should expect?
3) Will this salary be enough for me to live comfortably in Singapore, and also save a reasonable amount?
4) Are their any preferred employers in the hospitality industry in Singapore?
5) Would you recommend a different local instead, and why?
Any other info is appreciated. My research so far extends to looking at the JobBank website, as well as doing some basic research on visa requirements.
Wow. You're right your reply wasn't very nice.uscate wrote:lynx, you are MUCH MUCH MUCH nicer than I will be….Perhaps because this guy is from the US (as am I)….so what I'll say (very nicely) is….DUDE!!! Do you not have a CLUE???? MBA and Master of Hotel Admin….GFL in getting a job in the US, let alone Sing!!! For God's sake - check the archives of this site - you'll have PLENTY of great info as to why you SHOULD NOT anticipate getting a job in Sing (unless you have some wealthy family connection, in which case I say - Oops)….
OK - rant over….OP, please just check the archives - you'll have some great info from people wiser than I, who will give you roughly the same info….
Good luck to you -
