Thanks Briane for your detailed answer and suggestions. Basically I will come to Singapore for study somewhere in March for 4 months approximately. Will it increase my chances when they see my location as Singapore, Singaporean address in the details and Singaporean contact phone number even though I will be on the student pass?brian_singapore wrote:Security is one of the hot skillsets that SG government is looking to promote. While this means a company should be able to get you an EP despite the current constriction on EP issuance, very few companies will interview an intermediate employee from outside the country.
It is possible to find work while outside, but very difficult. Most hiring managers will bin your CV at the first sniff of a foreign address or telephone number. Most recruiters will tell you to give them a call when you land in Singapore.
You very much need to be physically in Singapore to conduct an effective job search.
1 other option would be to find an employer with SG based practice and have them transfer you here. I don't know if anyone who would hire you fresh and ship you to Singapore however.
Aside from looking at security, I'd suggest also looking under the category of technology risk management. Many jobs posted for this type of role these days, particularly from the banks.
