found a job in a month. next step... Any help please ?

Post by stefmo » Thu, 29 May 2008 12:26 am

Bonjour,
i posted my cv on cityj... last month, and found a job. I didn't think i would be so lucky! :D
I should work for an international Bank mainly based in Asia.
I wait to have the work permit to resign. After reading this blog i don't want to take any risk.... :?

Do you know where i can find the list of GP's or hospitals agreed in France for the medical check ?
Do you know how long it will be to get the work permit ?
Is it easy to find an appt (1BDR) close to Orchard and is it expensive ?

I will earn 170K SGD yearly (plus bonus), less than in my country... is it enough to live here ?


Many thanks
Stef

worry not, 170k/annum will give you a pretty decent life in singapore as long as you're a normal sorta' guy.

poke around the classifieds here (or elsewhere on the internet) to get a feel for apartment prices - the prices can really vary depending on amenities/furnishings/age.

i hope you enjoy your time in singapore. : )

No problem to find a good place to live in with the amount you can earn.

oh ya, in singapore, it is very hard to find one bedroom appartment..

Mon congrats and welcome to Singapore.

Rental is a bit expensive here but you should be fine and yes, 1-bedroom apartment is not an easy-find. However, 170K should be good enough to live a confortable life. Many people earn less than 30K SGD annually and they are not sleeping on the streets.

You must also take into consideration the desire of having a similar standard of living as well. I doubt if the original poster has be just above "sleeping on the streets" :?

Have to ask -- if you think Dubai's that bad, why do you think you'll like Singapore any more? :o

Japkotal- hey I have many potential of being in Singapore and well yes it is better than dubai and i have been in there that's why am coming back I find no place better than it..if you think in Singapore is not good that up to you.. Can you imagine you can't afford your own apartment or even room in Dubai.. daily traffic-jam, Taxis and public bus just forget about them, even though you have the money they are not there (in fact they are but they won't stop) I have suffered enough.. I don't wanna go mentally sick.. you can't practice anything like hobbies or whatsoever. am a martial artis(Pro +17 years exp.) I have no time to practice.. so once you think of this then post somthing
