Re: Changing Jobs while Husband's PR application is pending - Good or Bad idea?

Hi, I think it's better to get the permanent job. You just need to update ICA by sending email to firstname.lastname@example.org wrote:Hi Zack and Everyone,
My husband is an Indonesian citizen. I am a Singapore citizen and will be the sponsor for his Singapore PR Application.
I have a few questions to ask everyone and would sincerely appreciate any guidance provided.
I am currently working in the Public Service. I am working on a contract basis as this organization generally hires on a contractual basis despite being a statutory board.
I have completed my probation and am 10 months into my job. Prior to this, I was working for a year on another contract role and before that I worked in Australia for about 7 years.
We will be submitting my husband's PR documentation in November 2016. I have just been offered another permanent job with Singhealth.
Please advice if it would be wise for me to switch jobs now or while his application is still pending?
I would think that a permanent job (with a slightly higher salary) will be beneficial as I am the main sponsor for this application. However, I am worried that the change in job while the PR is being processed might end up affecting the application as it might look like I am a job hopper.
The PR application requires me to provide an employer's letter stating last last month's salary and confirming my employment. Would all this no longer be valid when I have a new job(will be on 6 months probation) and the PR is still being processed?
I have to add that we have a son who is also a Singapore citizen. My husband is not working in Singapore as he could not find a job here. He is now working in Indonesia as he wanted to keep working as compared to being unemployed. My husband is now on a LTVP.
We have been married for 4 years
