Ease of job hunting in Singapore

Postby Nanya » Fri, 26 Aug 2005 7:40 pm

Dear all,

I am currently finishing up my PhD at Cambridge, U.K. in Criminology but I am a bit sick of living inside the university all the time and would like to relocate to policy research and analysis outside of academia. I fell in love with Singapore since my last visit and wonder if it's easy to relocate to Singapore? I am fluent in both Chinese and English but I lack job experience (the only job was teaching as visiting assistant professor at HKU for half a year). I wonder if anyone can kindly point me to the direction of obtaining more information about relocating to Singapore.

Thank you very much and any advice is welcome.

Teach! Teach in Singapore! Get yourself login to 'The Straits Times' online and look at the recruit section.

Local university do not required your expertise at this moment. :?

If you have a friend in Singapore, he/she can help you to source for job. Not difficult at all.
