There are many ways to land a job here.
Have yourself mean test at www.mom.gov.sg then apply is one way to go
If your credentials are good then you will get AIP. Approval in Principle
Then come over and hunt for job.
Since MOM has vetted your credentials which is the first part, all you need to do is hunt for the job. It may take longer then you expected as job are hard to find nowadays. If your skillset is rare then your chances are high
If you were to come here on SVP, chances of landing a job will be tough

Go to the search button under the profile link and type in what you are looking for and ABSORB.

Good Luck

I think its sarcasm with a hint of truth.

Good luck getting here. I can bitch all day about Singapore but the fact is, I’m here so I must like something about it.

Of course it's sarcasm. sundaymorningstaple is famous for that. And I am sure that all the people who work there love Singapore, no matter what they say and how much they complain. But as I said, I am ready to do almost anything to start working there so nothing can stop me, even sundaymorningstaple. I'd rather have a Guiness with him on my next trip to Singapore than giving way to the despair this forum gives off.

Everyone deserves a chance to be employed given the right attitude and qualifications that suit what the employers expects. And regardless of whether you are able-bodied or not, you ought to get a job you want provided you make enough effort in getting IT. :lol:


Your preferred jobs won't come to you easily. Be proactive, call up the companies and ASK for it.. heheh
