If I'm not mistaken, you need to apply for Landed PR 'before' you arrive in Singapore. Once here, you have a year to find a job. Any Job will do if you qualify for the LPR to start with. I've have hired LPRs for 1100/mo in order to get them established doing a clerk's job. If you already have a job here, you would have to apply for an Employment Pass before your HWP expires. Once you get that, you would have to work around 2 years before applying for PR. Actually you can apply in 6 months, but since last Sept it's extremely rare for that to happen do to the current backlash against foreigners. Most are getting letter asking them to reapply after they have been working here for 2 years.

If you are on a Work Holiday Programme, I know lots of the restaurants down at Clark & Robertson quays hire these types. The money's not good but at least it gives you time to suss out the country before you make any heavy duty committments.

Life isn't about avoiding the bruises. It's about collecting the scars to prove we showed up for it!
