MBA job in singapore

Postby AJAY » Wed, 09 Mar 2005 3:30 pm

Hi All,

I am an MBA graduate and an Indian nationality. At the moment I am working in Vietnam in an IT MNC as sales and marketing executive and I wish to work in Singapore. I tired to apply through the head hunter and all are asking if I have a PR or a Singaporean. So can any one of your help me in this. Appreciate your kind action in this matter.

If you go to Shenton Way or Raffles Place during lunch time and throw a stone, chances are it's gonna hit someone with an MBA. And this is not taking into consideration the MBA holders who are now reduced to driving cabs. Unless you've got one from an Ivy League, I'd say you're better off staying in Vietnam.

hi bryann,

No at the moment i am working in Vietnam and i wish to work in Singapore,which is a develped country with innovative leaders and people.

And

Thanks "Dime a dozen" for the piece of advice you have given me but why don’t we think positively than negatively. Every thing is possible in this world if we keep a positive attitude and positive mind set, so that we can maintain a win-win situation.

Suit yourself, mate. If you think you have a better idea of the situation from Vietnam, then by all means get on a plane, come here and see if i'm bullshitting you. They say the truth hurts. BTW, your MBA wouldn't be from a Vietnamese university now would it ? ;)

Hey "Dime a dozen" you talk too much if you can’t help them please keep quite, why you want to waste your energy and time on it. And for your information my MBA is from UK (University of Wales). So if you can give me some help then do it other wise forget it bro!! :)

People, they're everywhere

There are 4 kinds of people in this world:

1) People who don't know that they don't know

2) People who know that they don't know

3) People who don't know that they know

4) People who know that they know


Shine on.

Geez, that's the thanks I get, not that I was expecting any. I think you just have a problem accepting reality. I'm telling you the prevailing conditions in Singapore because I am here in Singapore while you're not. Of course, if from your vantage point in some Vietnamese jungle, you see otherwise, then do come here and try your luck. Self-denial and delusion gets you nowhere. Cheers, mate.

Innovative leaders and people? Now that was funny. 8)

Slightly more seriously, you're not going to find a job by posting anonymous whines to a bulletin board, especially if all you can tell around yourself is that you're an MBA -- as the Rt Hon Dime a Dozen says, there's a lotta MBAs around. And if your headhunters aren't finding you anything, then it sounds like your particular skillset isn't in demand either...

Instead, do you know anybody in Singapore? Does your company have dealings with Singapore? Find your jobs through people you know, that's by far the best way of doing it...

Hahaha, I was wondering when someone would pick up on the "innovative" bit. Looks like I didn't have to wait for long :) It appears to me, the OP has neevr been in Singapore. To OP: Innovative isn't something we expats typically attribute to Singapore and Singaporeans. The right adjective to use would be kiasu :)

And I don't need three guesses to figure out which category the OP goes under :D

Are you sure you didn't just buy it off some website or got it from a Vietnamese market. The way you write doesn't really impress upon a casual observer that you had actually gone through a British post-graduate course. :)
