Thats Right !! I am wondering too till now they claim they cant find a local resource for this position. They have been looking to fulfill the position since Aug 2016 and sadly on the first attempt, i have been kept on Hold due to the opening is for a cornered skill ( out of the skills i am carrying and i felt that's not right fit for me) and finally it again turned out to me in April 2017 :roll:

That kind of thinking don't hold water nowadays in singapore nor is the government keen on accepting it... Unless you are some inventor, investor or scientist :)

But stay positive!

It will takes longer time to get EP now. So my advise is, be patient.

However, I do notice the same pattern (feel free for every one to object/add your observation). If the application takes too long, let's say around 3 months, better to back off & find other companies. There is maybe something wrong with the company, not with you.

Happened to me before, my first company took 3 months plus to apply EP (with 2 rejections, before finally approved). All foreigners in this company also the same (e.g. Malaysian, Vietnamese, Australian), their pass need 3 months plus to get approved. And yeah, the company is doing so badly. I didn't receive my salary for 2.5 months (was leaving in Jan 2017, and didn't receive till now).

*I didn't mean to scare you off, just letting you know to be careful. If you're really keen to check whether it's you or the company, there is no harm to call MOM directly.

My EP was Pending until June mid which was filed by a well established company !!!
Sooner I was been offered some other position with a singapore company and when they filed through their vendor company who was kind of startup it just took 7 working days to approve my EP !!

I guess the Local Employee strength and the number of foreigners also matters to a company

Not a big count though !! Even 30 + employee organization calculates the ratio 20:10 atleast

The previous vendor had 500+ strength being local strength = foriegners so i guess thats how MoM considering too to improve local employee strength
