i dont think there is anything like "job searching-employment" visa. either u come on a employment pass or work permit (in which case u should have a job offer on hand) or u come as a visitor. i dont think visitors can look for jobs.

Hmm? Of course visitors can look for jobs. The problem is, this is unlikely to be considered an acceptable reason for visiting Singapore, and even if you get in you'll only have 14 days to do it.

It's better to try to find your leads from India and then fly down for the interview... although without very specialized skilled, not many companies are willing to go through the hassle of getting employment permits for you.

Check out this website. There is such a thing called a Social Visitor Seeking Employment Pass, but of course there are all sorts of prerequistes. You also need a local sponsor.
