I am a citizen of India and need an EP to work in Singapore.
Infosys made me an offer but could not get an EP.
Next Cognizant failed to get an EP.
Now Comtel solution is trying to get an EP.
Client is OCBC.
All in, for 3 months OCBC has asked company after company to get me an EP but all have failed.
Something wrong with me or with these companies?
Earlier Midntree got me an EP in 2010.
Is Comtel Solution able to get EP these days?
Thanks,
Vikash


You have all sorts of problems.

a) You're not being paid enough. How do I know? If you were being paid more, you'd probably have an EP.

b) You are going to be body-shopped, ie, contracted to a third party by the firm that hires you. Singapore doesn't like that any more. They want companies to hire permanent staff, preferably Singapore citizens.

c) You are Indian... so many threads will tell you why this is a hindrance these days.

d) Maybe it is you. Is your degree legitimate and easily verified? Is your work experience sufficient for the job? Are you a job hopper? Have you been in Singapore before and left.

I'd get plan B started... I don't think you're going to have any more success with Comtel... that's only my SWAG.

I'll suggest to you that you are a spammer. If you are looking for home tutoring jobs in Singapore, why are you posting from India?

Dear Sir,
I'm Jimmy, I'm the one who is hanging out around the world. I have no home, my home might be somewhere with someone I'm still pursuing for, since it resulted from my family background.
My first job is salesperson in Sri-Lanka and Nigeria in 2010 at one company, my second job is Administrative assistant in Ethiopia in 2012. In 2013, I'm at Davao city, Philippine. at the end of 2013, I came to Singapore. last year, I's in Kiribati, a smallest nation in the world, locates at Pacific ocean.
Before, I also have been to Ghana, Fiji island, India, Iraq, Dubai of UAE, Thailand, Laos and others. But Singapore is my favorite.
I can do sales job inside store, supermarket, office, such as telemarketing, as long as I'm familiar with the product I sell.
I'm the one who is working under endless tour :D
I even don't know what exactly I can do as a career.
Still pursue what I do want, what I can do for the society, for the people , for the community.
By the way, I love Singapore.

Hi All

I just landed in Singapore and I will be here for the next 3 months.

I am from UK, London.

Can anyone suggest either a recruiter or a person within a company, who are looking to hire a Product designer/ Project Manager.

Any piece of information will help.

My girlfriend just moved in Singapore 2017, so me and my partner are trying extremely hard to make these 3 months come to good use rather then me applying by online and waiting for a rely by email.

Many Thanks
Sham

Could you please give me a hint, which website going through for her to find decent job? Will be happy to hear any jobs tips, taking into account that job could be connected with Asian clients. Thank you a lot.


I have started using Linked In and so far I have found this being the most useful tool to meet people within direct business in relation to what I do over in UK and arranging interviews.

If you have any friends in Singapore, its always worth asking them for recommendation.

Wish you and your partner all the best.
