Contract/freelance job

Postby Kimi » Mon, 10 Nov 2008 6:52 pm

I'm in a frustrating situation at the moment. Am waiting for my working visa in Europe but 2 months have passed with response from the immigration there that the visa application submitted by my future employer is still under process without any ballpark number how much longer this takes!
A classmate got an offer from another country but within EU also, was told that probably her visa will be out in Dec.

So since I haven't been earning for like 18 months during my postgrad study, I really want to earn again since my fund is depleting without any income now. What kind of contract or freelance jobs in Singapore that can be done within 1 or tops 2 months period?

I speak Japanese and Indonesian too btw and had experience in financial industry before, even though it's not a hiring industry at the moment ay? :( Double bugger!
Cheers for any suggestion, even contacts of job agents perhaps.

I think the problem you have is much the same as anybody else at the moment. I don't see many employers hiring anybody for anything until it is clear just how much the credit crunch has. Those that are hiring will be picking and choosing mostly experienced people in Singapore and Europe for sure. Any growth industries in a recession anyone?

Too bad, if you're an iPhone developer, there are lots of jobs for you, even I could help you find one.
