Yes! it will look bad on your CV and yes, prospective employers will question your short stint with the prev org and the reasons for wanting to apply for a new position. They will no doubt wonder whether you have any intentions staying longer with them since you didn't stay long enough with the prev one.Jack_Hunk wrote:I'm a foriegner and I've recently accepted a job in a popular bank (name suppressed) and the location is outside Singapore. But I'll be in Singapore for a training for a duration of 3-6 months. Since I don't want to leave Singapore I plan to try for another job as soon as I land there. I'd like to know if there will be any issues if I quit this Bank in about 2 -3 months time. Will the other companies question me too much on this quick jump?
If it was for a job promotion in a top IT company and you did not accept it I am of the opinion that you made a bad move and only because you want to work in SG! What made you think you would get a better offer in SG than the one you were offered? Currently the IT field is in over supply of IT personnel resulting in hiring of cheap labour from across the border as well as from other parts of Asia. Unless you don't mind settling for a position & pay that is of a lower standard than the one you were offered I had say it would be better if you took the offer you had WHILST looking for a good one in SG thereby should one come up you would have a better bargaining power in terms of pay as well as role.Jack_Hunk wrote:Also it would be nicer if someone can help me on this. I also got a promotion in the same company I'm working currently. Its one of the top IT companies in the world (name suppressed). Because of my desire to work in Singapore I've turned down the offer. Can someone suggest if this is a wise desicion. I'm quite confused and I'm afraid if I'm taking a wrong decision. Should I take up the offer and try for a full fledged job in Singapore probably 3-6 months later?
There is currently an over supply of IT personnel in this field. Recently I got to know of someone (DBA administrator) who had attended a 3-hour long (final) interview with a company in SG and when he had finished the company fedback to the headhunter that they would like to put this candidate in the KIV folder as his asking salary was way beyond their expectations!Jack_Hunk wrote:How is the job market for IT Database Administrator in Singapore. Any suggestions is highly appreciated. Thanks!
I would say it depends on the sort of industry that an IT pro is applying for. If it is for organizations like Google or Microsoft or Credit Suisse or Boeing then yes the lot of developers are a prized possession to these companies and only the good ones are taken. If it is for a 'jack of all trades and master of none' sort of company then IT personnel are a dime a dozen. However with the economic slowdown these days most organizations are beginning to outsource their IT department or software applications. Especially in the banking sector. So if an Oracle DBA specialist is looking out for a job that will pay well he will have to look out for industries that cannot live without Oracle.Strong Eagle wrote:I generally agree with krptykcookies's comments but I would add one clarification. Yes, IT folks are a dime a dozen but what is missing are the really good ones... like a solutions architect with the Asian experience to design a server/network solution spanning 16 countries and 7,000 staff. This is much more than technology... it is understanding network availability and costs, infrastructure stability, and skill levels of IT professionals throughout Asia.
These kind of people will make real money.
I would add that I think you are ethically challenged to join this company and accept the training when you know your only intention is to leave.
No there is no minimum service period for S pass holders.loepis2154 wrote:Actually, is there any minimum service period for S pass holders? My friend holds S pass and resigned after 3 months - 2 months notice period- and he got fined S$1000 by the government(?).
And is it okay that my employer to pay this month salary deficit on next month because the paycheck already issued?
