Looking for job

Postby Ms. Vivian » Wed, 12 Mar 2008 11:08 am

Hi everyone! I'm from the Philippines. I am moving to Singapore to look for work. I want to know if there are any chances of getting a job there with Administrative, Sales and Customer Service background? I have applied here online. Unfortunately, i got no reply from the applications i submitted.

Hope you can help me. Thank you!

Hello Vivian, I am also a foreigner in Singapore but from Hong Kong. I also had trouble securing any job opportunities when applying from overseas. I applied to many positions prior to coming with only minimal response. Now that I am actually in Singapore it has been much easier and have had lots of interests from employers. So from my experience it seems most employers prefer you being in the country first (maybe unless you are really experienced and educated in an area lacking here??), I guess in case they spend time on your application and you may not actually come. Hope that helps. Let me know how it goes. Best of luck!!
