Decided to settle down in Singapore - An advice

Post by kimtaymour » Mon, 14 Apr 2008 3:33 am

Hi guys as the title is showing i have decided to start a new life in Singapore i have done an intensive search on almost everythg. Now the plan is to be executed by year end. keep in mind i have been in Singapore on 2004, am very used to the culture and tradition as i have been for 4 years in Malaysia. I am planing a trip this august if things goes fine . For now am working in Dubai, but lack of mind relaxation is a huge matter here.
I am in the IT line holding B.Sc Hons, CCNA+MCSE(soon), speak 6 langs. 3 official languages (english,french,arabic) and 3 other (one of them is mandarin about 30%)

My question and concern is that how fast can i secure a job before i run out of cash and whithin a certain time frame (30 days), I'll do a job hunt too in August but thats for like 10 days so the bigger is in Year End. :wink:

whenever i think about it i go stressed :???:

Also advice me on mandarin classes ! :lol:

any tips/advice/suggestion will be highly appreciated

After trying to understand your 1st paragragh, I'm guessing you are basing your desire to move to Singapore on what you've looked up on the net and a short visit 4 years ago?

Most expats either come to Singapore due to a job posting or following/joining family.

I would think your chances of finding a job within the IT industry, even if you were in Singapore for 10 days, would be slim. There is already a saturation of local IT bods looking for jobs within the IT sector.

Thanks Jan ^^ am wokring on that already !

My main visit this Aug. will be tourism and checkoing out and surveyin the market too, i have been there to 8 countries - a good experience and have seen a lot and many places not such country can be compared to Singapore and well thats my own view other can have theirs ! that's up to them.

Eventhough the IT its saturated i can work out other fields I have other experience in other fields too so am polyvalent somehow ! But still i would prefer IT. the year end 's job hunt will be a long and good one so this coming 10 days is to visit more countries around and drop CVs along the way in SG if anythings popup that is am in am staying.

Waiting adivces forumers!

Don't want to sound rude but I would get an English speaker to check your CV before sending it to companies in Singapore if going by your last posting. Singlish is easier to understand!

The IT envrionment of Singapore is not good.Compare to the other country,the market is smaller,the cost is higher. There are a lot of guys holding VP or SVP finding for jobs everyday,but 90% of them can't make it when the visa expired.Even for PR,a good IT job is not easy to find

heheheh are you out of secondary school yet? I ask because your level of English leave a bit to be desired. You do not go "finding" for something. You go "Looking" for something. :roll:

OP will probably give the average Singaporean clerk a run for their money in the Business English department! To me they are a waste of air and groceries as I have to proofread everything before it leaves the office. I may as well do it my self. I can already type faster then 80% of them anyway.
