Employment Opportunities

Postby Abby113 » Tue, 08 Aug 2006 4:21 pm

Hi Everyone....

This is my first post and I would like to check on employments for a non college degree holder.

My boyfriend major in Massage Therapy and minors in Art in University of Illinois, but did not complete it. I would like to know the possiblities of him landing a job here, maybe in the healthcare industry or animation or the likes...

It would be good if anyone from these industries could let me know more...

He needs to be here as we hope to start a family together here in Singapore.

By the way, I'm a singaporean.

Any replies will be appreciated.

Cheers, Abby
Independance!!!

Please don't forget to let people know that you don't have a job because you opted out of one after some people had bent over backward trying to help you. Next time remember the old adage..........a bird in the hand is worth two in the bush. You should have taken the first one and then gone shopping. Live and learn I hope.
