Question on what to leave out in job app

Postby slayerk2000 » Thu, 21 Apr 2011 6:25 pm

I remember reading one of SMS's post and he said all info that's illegal to ask in other countries.. not so illegal here, in fact, mandatory.

I don't mind so much putting in age/religion/race info, but should I mention I'm in need of an EP to be employed (i.e. putting down my nationality/place of birth/passport number etc.)?

I'm talking about hard copy CVs and not online applications where you have to check boxes..

How do they know if you don't mention it? Do they ask you to fill in forms at reception?

Any comments are greatly appreciated!

That one they will know if your CV doesn't say Permanent Resident or Citizen of Singapore on it. Everybody else requires an employment pass of on type or another.

Every Citizen, PR or current employment pass holder has an NRIC or FIN number assigned to them, much the same as your passport number or driver's license number or Income Tax or Social Security number. In Singapore your NRIC is all of them. Citizens & PR's both have NRIC's and that number has to be included on everything you ever fill out here. If you don't have an NRIC or FIN If you have a FIN # it means you already have or have had an Employment Pass at one time or another - the number never changes until such time as you take up PR - then you are issued an NRIC.
