enquiry regarding SPass and WP

Postby smilespb » Wed, 27 Jul 2011 10:25 pm

Hi all,
I am new here, I would like to check with you about my pass, I am holding S-pass from March 2011 in a small firm, and it’s my 1st company in SG. Now I get one offer in public listed company, but the problem is the company not ready to give the S-pass. I am a MBA graduate, my spouse arranged for this new opening because of my current company too far from my home.
If company provide WP , is there any problem for my future?

Well it looks like you are prepared to downgrade in income too, I should imagine, it effects your future in a couple of ways, though only you can decide if its more convenient. There is also a good chance you get the WP rejected too.

How can you be too far away from home? Do you live in Malaysia? I mean Singapore is that small, It sounds to risky from my point of view to give up your S pass, has the minimum income is $2000. Never trust an employer here to say he's going to pay you the same but on a WP, My guess is you will be rejected for WP for being over qualified, and taking a Singaporeans livelihood at this delicate time when they are getting stricter. Stay were you are and don't gamble your future is my advice a 40 minute travel time isn't so bad, when the risks are against you.
