Shoe string=approx 400-500$ a month. I am thinking of coming there for at least a 3 month period, and if things don't go according to plan then come back to India.
Also how much do I need to budget as expenses during these 3 months?
I am a good cook, don't eat outside much, don't drink but do occasionally smoke.
I ll try to squeeze an extra question into this one, I have a dual Masters i.e, an MBA finance/Marketing and an M.sc International Business and besides nearly 5 years of retail experience as an operations manager @ BP. I have a valid Tier I UK work permit which is about to expire in Feb this year. India has been a huge disappointment and I just want to leave this miserable place. Is Singapore a relevant place for my kind of educational grounding?
For 400 - 500 US$ you can afford to rent a room, instead of a dorm - and for living - it will be about 10 $ or less, if you are ok to eat normal food, or 100$ and above if you are a fine dining specialist ..
Average meal costs 5$ or so .. macdonalds cost about 7$ or so per meal, so you can figure it out though you can get it cheaper .. Generally, nobody cooks, and for short term rental, nobody wants you to dirty the kitchen .. so eating out it will be ..
As for job scope, well, you can get in, if you are able to present yourself. in Singapore, Qualfication and experience will open doors, but presenting yourself will ensure whether you come in - for example - as an engineer getting paid 2,000 or 4,000
You should hit on the consultants, like Hays, Emerio, Adecco, Robert Walters, and so and so .. and TCS, and so ..
As for relevancy - no comments - am not gonna go there- for me it is a question of how bad you need a job and how choosy you can become in life
