Appeal Letter/Template

Postby kavinvin » Tue, 02 Aug 2011 12:17 pm

Hi All,
I studied my MBA in Singapore(JCU),then I got my EPEC and long term visit pass to stay and search a for a job within a period of 1 yr.
I got a job in a small trading company and they offered me Business Development Executive role and also applied for my Employment pass with 3000$ as salary. After 5 days I received a rejection from MOM and the company checked with MOM and said they have rejected my application as my previous experience not relates with the current industry.
Now the company is ready to appeal for the rejection and my Boss ask me to compile a appeal letter and give it to him so that he will appeal with that letter.
I am not sure about the appeal letter template or what contents should be there in the appeal letter.If anyone knows it please let me know it here or email me the template to kavin.vin@gmail.com
Thanks
Kavin

Save your time & effort. Unless you have something new to add that is relevant to the case, then you are just going to tick off the MOM officer because you are wasting their time. As a foreigner, unless your experience and/or education are directly related to the position at hand, then there no reason to hire an unqualified foreigner for the position. They can hire all the unqualified people they want already here.

The beauty of this offer is, I need to be working in their Brunei branch for 2 or 3 months initially and I have already joined in that office and its been nearly 1 month and they are also desperate in getting me in to their concern. So I need a appeal letter template for that.
Thanks

No, you don't need a template, you need some creativity, which you are apparently lacking since you keep asking for a template.

a) There is no template.
b) If there was a template, MOM wouldn't give a sh*t.

No, you need creativity... like how what you bring to the job makes you unique from all the other monkeys who'd like to have your job. Or maybe why the company can't find the needed talent locally. Something... anything... to differentiate you from the unwashed crowd. If you can't come up with this, then it's definitely no go for you.

Then again, $3000 for a "Business Development Executive" says a lot. It sounds like a bogus title at a minimal salary. If you had talents that were really in strong demand and hard to find, they'd have to pay you a lot more than $3000.

If the company is 'desperate' have them pay you more... lots more... that's one thing that would get MOM's attention.
