Hi, I saw a related sharing on the forum back in 2017 and recently I encountered the same, so just wanted to share and see if anyone has faced the same situation before, and how you deal with the situation. #justsharing #seekforadvice
So my husband is SC and I'm holding a LTVP with PLOC living in SG. when I applied for LTVP with PLOC, I have consulted MOM and they say it is lawful for me to work here, and company won't need to sponsor work permit or pay foreigner quota.
I'm finishing my MBA soon by this year-end, so I started applying on varied job board these two months. There is one finding that when I fill in all the applications online, there is always a question about your identify (SC, PR, Foreigner), there is no option for LTVP with PLOC that I can choose. especially those MNC, big big companies... And i think if I submit as a foreigner, they probably will not retrieve my profile... one of the Chinese Tech company the HR told me my profile is matching but they can only accept SC or SPR applicants now according to the internal "document" by gov. so the reality is either company or agencies not like to take non SC or non SPR candidates nowadays.
is there any suggestion from the floor??? is it really difficult for a foreigner spouse to find a job in Singapore (even though with government's rightful approval) ?
