but like what Strong Eagle said, apparently the headhunters or recruitment method are only effective for more experienced workers.

and what's more, I'm not a Singaporean or PR. I saw a lot of job postings which I can fit into often looking for Singaporean or SPR only.


That is true, especially for positions that either the locals don't want to do or find too challenging. But, don't give up. I have applied for job that are for SP/SPR only and I got some interests asking me to come down for interview. It's all about how you present your CV, your skill sets and of course your communication ability/enthusiasm during the interview. If I were you, I'd revise my CV for simplicity and readability and send them to any job posts, even those that are SP/SPR only.

This is illegal, as recruiters by law cannot charge the applicant here.
Apparently, illegal doesn't mean it's never done ...
