HELLO!

Consulting in which area may I ask? Air / sea freight? Operations? Integrators? or?

In general, integrators like fedex do have consulting positions, maybe you can write in to the headquarters of that particular company and ask for an internship in consulting in Singapore. I don't think if you write in directly to an international forwarder in singapore, they will accept your application. Like what someone said earlier, you have to write to the headquarters unless you want to work for a singapore-headquartered company.

That should work...Give it a try??

let me know if it works??! :lol:

Hey guys...

Consulting for things like how to find a forwrder, how to start-up a company, how to calculate a transport....something that have to do with transport/logistic/forwaring/etc. and finance/leasing/bank/etc.



I will try it and post my reply here...

That´s a so big dream for me to work for some months in SG - this have to work...


Thanks once more...

Herlizhen Glueckwuesch! :lol: :lol:

No it's not difficult! I'm so glad through the URL I gave you, you found something! :)

S-pass will take some time to be approved, it's usually valid for 1 year, after which you can even be offered a full time position if they like you. Can I know which company??? 8-) 8-)

All the best :D :D
