From the sound of your attitude and the look of your spelling (shortcuts of one letter don't count especially when the other one is incorrect "sumbody" ) it may well be a lot longer before you find a job here. Dissing people because we have tried to help you will never find you a job. It is always best to give yourself the benefit of the doubt even if you are in a so-called informal setting. (This forum has an employment section as well)

As I said, you never know who might be reading these posts. I, for one, am a headhunter with over 10 years experience here in Singapore. With your attitude, I am afraid I would never give you the chance to embarass me with one of my clients.

I sincerely wish you good luck in you quest, I personally feel you are going to need it.

:lol: whoa. at least be humble? you asked for advice, and the advice was given. look up your dictionary for 'sumbody' for the start. however, i still believe you dont represent other first class English Hons graduates of Delhi uni, do you? heh :roll:

fix your attitude first

"gyan?" You are NOT in India, you are in SINGAPORE. Get your head straight. Stop talking in jibberish, fix your grammar and spelling and take yourself off the pedestal!

Such arrogance! People are trying to help you and you are just being a B*tch!

Dear Delhite,

If what you have displayed on this forum is part of your marketing strategy to land yourself a well paying job then I would say that you are way off.

So far all you have managed to accomplish is to make a very bad impression on a head-hunter, the one person that has the connections and power to facilitate instant meetings and job interviews with recruiting companies. Well, talk about shooting oneself in the foot :cry:

One would almost feel inclined to encourage you to try getting a refund from Delhi university and XLRI as obviously they have not been able to teach you anything.

Initially you were asking for help and advice so I will give you two words to reflect on: “mindful communication”
Impossible is nothing!

This is a joke

Can this person be for real? To me it sounds like they are joking, then again if someone is that rude I wish they would go back to desi-land.

Hi,

Info on the Careers Expo can be found at http://www.careerchoice.com.sg/

It is at Singapore Expo Hall 6 on 15-17 July 2005

I am also in Singapore looking for work after relocating with my partner, and have been searching for over 4 months. But I am also enjoying networking and volunteering and of course having the time to sample the many wonderful cuisines available in Singapore! I hope to find a job soon, but I am also making the most of my newfound spare time!
