Anyone who are awaiting EP for longer than than 30 days+ i advice to rethink waiting period and move on with other possible options.


Congrats. The reapplication option may not work for all. Since, they have waited for a long time, one option would be to wait patiently and get the result.




Dear Singaporeflyer, are you from a recruitment company? I followed your write ups

Guys !!! I have chased my recruiter for so many times to withdraw the application, But they are not responding,. because they are scared if they withdraw the application they will loose the offer from the employer and some other recruiter will get it. I am not worried since I am currently getting a much better offer than what I am getting and got for recent pending EP from singapore, But I know from my previous experiences how are our guys feel when its pending for long time.

He's been on the board for the last 7 years. He came here looking for answers. Found them and has been helping us pay it forward ever since. :cool:

No misunderstanding, we all do as much as we can with the data we collect. MOM & ICA hold their cards pretty close to their chests. We collect anecdotal evidence and see trends if/when possible and give our advice without warranty but with lots of collective experience in a lot of different industries and income stratas.

In fact all of us here are/were regulars. Even the four moderators here are all regular board members who have been here since Moses parted the Red Sea. We post as regulars (as I'm sure you've noticed) and we all put on our moderator caps only when absolutely necessary (and usually signify some way in our posts that we are doing so). I usually use a blue font, x9022 uses green. And we also sign off a moderator rather than leaving it blank or in my case, using SMS. We also self moderate each other as we, on rare occasions, step a wee bit over the line as well. We also don't operate the forum quite like some of the other forums either.

Especially when someone asks the same how long is a piece of string question as 25 others did the week before! ;-)

+1. I am also just part of the technical workforce in Singapore and not a recruiter.

Joined this forum in 2009, looking for answers - and expecting it like what I wanted.

But, learnt a lot of information from this forum, which initially will be bitter to take in. But down the line, you will surely be able to appreciate the answers and the information from here.

Hi,

I having an offer from company A and they applied for EP which was pending since 3 months. I am tired waiting for this EP and moved on got an offer in Company B. Now, Before company B files for EP, should the company A withdraw my Application or is it not needed ?

Can you tell me how it works ?

Yes, you should get the first company withdraw.

Though some smart guy may say it's ok, reality has seen both passes rejected.

You should have the application result in 1-2 weeks from now, as we have heard of EP results for some of them known around 3 months time from the date of application.
