Now here is the uncanny thing I put Sarinho post through the same Greek-Arab-Chinese process and it comes out almost the same?!


"Do not worry, respect is relatively easy to describe. Sorry, you are not a person who told me that this abstract concept"

It does prove the GIBBERISH IN Gibberish OUT theory is true.



where are you from?
i am talking to you,no need to say something

respect is something:

listening with out interrupting

taking your partner's feelings into consideration

keeping an open mind

agreeing to disagree

trying to understand your partner's viewpoint

loving yourself

trust and honesty

giving each other space

nonviolence

direct communication

building a person up instead of tearing them down

friendship

not pressuring the other person

.

.

.etc


and many more ,different relative approaches

so,you can not describe everything so simple...its,as i say (abstract concept ) relatively!

:wink:

The problem, sarinho, is that you have already lost everybody's respect here due to your own lace of respect for yourself with your shenanigans in your earlier post. And every additional post you are making just makes it worse. Especially like your continuous asking of posts where they are from. Does it matter. If I lived in Singapore for 30 years but moved home 6 weeks ago, would that make my posts any less relevant? :???: :roll:

SMS,you know what i am looking for!
i Just want to discuss to the people who are in Singapore,not from another country!

before all else,people should first know about my country,before discussing......there are some,who do not know about all and write something of my country,which are completely not right and very absurd!

i never write something another here,only the truths and real issues.
When you again read my postings,there you will never find something nonsense and unreal expressions.

briefly,i never show disrespectful approaches to anyone else

This guy is extremely stubborn and cannot see when he's making a fool out of himself.
This was entertaining for a while, but now gets stale. I will therefore stop watching this topic.
I am quite sure he will in the end come to Singapore because he adamantly thinks he's entitled to one of the top-10-paid jobs here, as he's found on a Russian (!?!) website. Of course he will fail - and find something other than himself to blame (e.g. discrimination against him, as he already indicated).
Some people are incorrigible in their opinion that they are right and all the world around them is wrong. Sad case!

Hey guys, I have an amateur question or two if its ok...

What exactly is the definition of 'Entry level'... no experience? 2 years? 3 years...?

Also if some of you don't mind sharing, did you manage to find your job in Singapore from abroad (outside of Singapore) or while you were there in person already? Would be cool as reference to me since it's on the back of my mind to move there, I've been working in Hong Kong for 2.5 years to come and I feel pretty good about qualities I possess, including the ability to speak English Cantonese and Mandarin all fluent with a university degree...

Any input would be appreciated thanks :)

I found a job while I was abroad but I had to attend about three interviews in Singapore before I was able to secure my current job.

leaving your resume "searchable" in monster does wonders. and if you're from a particular industry, you'll also be practically spammed from a certain south asian location. :-|

same here, but I was lucky and only had to go to one interview. i just started emailing resumes to the HR of the companies i want to work for even if they weren't advertising open roles.also try emailing the key person you would be working under if you have the job. that's how i got most of my interviews

i feel that you shouldn't compare how much salary you're getting here to US or Europe since the income tax in singapore very low compared to them. i started looking at it as "how much i can save per month" instead of "how much I get per month". for me personally I'm happy as long as I can save at least sgd1000 per month and not have to pinch pennies.

I was very fortunate in that I was headhunted by my then employer, flown in for an interview, hotel and flight included, and then several phone interviews with the US headquarters.
It's common sense - if you try to come in before I go out, I can't go out. And you can't come in! Lose-lose!

I would definitely love to experience that.
What did you do to enjoy such a good hiring process?

Up until around 6 or 7 years ago, it happened with great regularity for expatriate positions. Generally, there would be a telephone interview and if the guy/gal was shortlisted, they would be flown in all expense paid for an interview. Later, it became "fly in on your own cost and if you are successful, the company will reimburse your costs". Now, it's "Are you feeling lucky? How bad do you want the job?" :(
