Exploring career opportunity in Singapore Banking Industry

Postby fari_javf » Thu, 27 Jul 2006 7:28 pm

Hi,

I am relocating to Singapore in August 2006, to join my husband. Currently I work with a leading bank in India and have 9years of experience across functions in progressively responsible positions.

I would appreciate any contacts of recruitment consultants specialising in the Banking industry. My email id is faridac@yahoo.com

Thanks

Farida

Hi Fareeda..

well..i have'nt been here too long..just 3 months
me looking for a job too
so out of watever little experience i have i can tell u..thr r quite a few finance jobs in Singapore
But if ur coming in dependant pass, u shud b mentally prepared to wait before u start getting calls from companies
but surely with 9 yrs work ex..u r at a much better position (i hv only 2 yrs work ex)
u can start searching on jobsdb,monster etc from india itself
here..consultants like Optimum,Robert Walters can be contacted
all the best for ur search

Thanks pal,

I really am quite jittery about this whole plan of relocation, as this will be the first time in my life I haven't planned anything. Well, but I have to move as my hubby is based in Singapore.

All,

I can sense all of your frustration, and I understand how you feel, as I was in your shoes before in a way....

But personally I 'm not sure whethe rI'm right you guys don't seem to do enough of research...and hunting!

Jobs don't just drop in front of you yah? you need to put a bit more effort in!

To get to where you want to be , you need to ask

1. what skills do I need to get into for example IB sales, it's not just coz you're working in a bank, you can change jobs so easily ie from a trader to a finance, or from a sales to compliance for example.

2. Singapore is a fab financial banking market, there's a lot you can search on, follow up with newspapers, agents, even the basic salary rates I' m sure I myself, and a lot of other banking people have said try the www.robertwalters.com, and some others, they post salary info every year, it's very thorough, got a very detailed breakdown in terms of the salary range in different roles/departments in a bank....CHECK IT OUT!

3. follow up with agent, ask what's needed for me to get a job....why am i not getting, etc....agents have 0000s candidates , if you're not one of those hot hot demanded person I'm sorry to say they're not going to call you every day to tell you what's happening, probably forgetting where your existence by 1 week's time!

call, and call, and more follow up! you have to show you're aggressive, confident for the agents to notice, and remember your and your request.

4. Search on each bank's career website, HSBC, DBS, OCBC , CSFB, etc...etc..be active!

I hope I dont sound too harsh.

Good luck

I am from OZ and looking for a job in banking or related industry. I have over 13 years of retail banking experience with responsibilities in Business Development, Lending, customer service initiatives and branch operation.

I am conversant in English, Mandarin, Cantonese, Hokkien, Foochow and the Malay Language.

I have been actively looking for jobs but have yet to get any outcome after a few months. Pls share some thoughts as I may have miss out something along the line.

Those who have similar experience or banking recruiters, your assistance/comments are highly appreciated.

Thanks in advance
