Got IPA from xyz organization but now decided to go with ABC

Postby cardio » Wed, 20 Jul 2011 1:48 am

Hi All,

I got IPA from MOM with XYZ orgnaization, now i decided not to join XYZ but to go with ABC organization in Singapore. Right now i am working in India with ABC orgnaization, now they decided to transfer me to Singapore and they would apply for my EP.

The question is, i already have P1 IPA from XYZ but not joined XYZ yet, if i decide to go with ABC which is my present working organization, will there be any problem in getting P1 approved again?

What would be the process?

Thanks,

Now we have someone that likes to use alphabets. What about numerical or alphanumerical syntax ?
XYZ has to cancel your EP . Only then ABC can apply for your EP thru MOM
The process will be the same from A to Z or 0 to 10 or in hexadecimal will be 0 to 16

Yes , the approval of XYZ company on your EP AIP does not mean ABC application will be approved as it will be a NEW submission which means you can be approved or rejected or for any company from ABC DEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUWVXYZ for that matters

Getting greedy are we ?

And the last thing that Singapore needs is another job hopper. The have enough citizens like that already. Doesn't make any sense to let in one more.

As you already work for ABC, did you tell them that you'd already applied for a job with another company or not? I would assume not, but the possibility exists that you told them you were leaving to move to Singapore hence they offered to move you there themselves, hence why I'm asking the question.

This would have baring on my decision. If they have no idea you were looking to leave, then you're going to have to tell them to hold off on the EP application until you can get the XYZ to cancel theirs, and then ABC will know what you were up to. If that's not a problem then cool, but some companies can be vindictive and you don't want to end up with XYZ cancelling their offer and then ABC letting you go too

Jay,

Thanks for your reply, yes i did inform ABC that i have IPA approved from XYZ. Now my present working orgnaization is checking as to how to proceed, etc...

Frankly, there is no question of greediness here... it is only that i am working for this organization for more than 5 years, i just don't want to leave. Looks like my chances are slim but just checking whether i can take a chance.

There is no much pay difference between XYZ & ABC.

Thanks,

Then you should do alot of soul searching and googling before you take that plunge with the new company. If money is not the issue and you do not want to come out of your comfort zone but for reason unknown to us, you saw an opportunity to set foot in SG with the new company and you jumped ship. Am I right so far ?
There goes your 5 years loyalty to the former company but again for reason unknown to us, the tide changes and now you state your loyalty to the former company
Ain't that fickle minded, don't you think?
Let me give you a lesson in life, if you have considered and take all precautionary measures for the unforeseen circumstances and then you decided to take the plunge, thick or thin you stick to it like glue. Capisce?
Whether you float or sink , you go for it even if the tide goes against you.
That is call having your dignity intact and not sellling it to the highest bidder.
Life is a bitch, take it on the chin and move on.
You cannot and will never be able to predict what the future lies ahead. What you can do is to lessen the impact.

I don't think it is. The guy wants to come to Singapore so found a job here, nothing wrong with that in my view. Once his existing company found out, rather than lose him they offered him a position in Singapore which he wants to take, maybe originally he was not aware that they had positions in Singapore hence his looking elsewhere. As he wishes to stay with his current employer then this actually shows some sort of company loyalty IMO, I don't think you can bash the guy for wanting to move to Singapore because most of us here did the same.

And as you mention loyalty to a multinational company - you're joking aren't you? Since when is a MNC ever loyal to it's employees? They'd fire you as soon as look at you if they needed to cut costs to make the shareholders even more money so I don't buy that one for a second, you're just a number and if you believe anything else you're deluding yourself
