HR work in Singapore

Postby Nataliya29 » Tue, 04 Oct 2011 7:03 pm

Hello to all,

I have been applying for an HR work in Singapore for quite sometime now and unfortunately to no avail.....yet.

What would you suggest for a method which can increase my luck? I will apply for an EPEC this month but I am not sure if it can help in my job search.

I have almost 10 years of experience in HR and is working in an international organization here in Manila.

Any advice/suggestions please?

Thanks!

Nata

Unless you are Singaporean or PR you are going to find it virtually impossible to even get a foot in the door. Singapore has plenty of home grown HR professionals ( :lol: ) to fill all the positions here.

Or if you have specialised in HR solutions, like SAP HR, and the like, hit on the MNCs / Foreign Banks .. other than them, the chance for local companies is very low ..

Traditionally HR is the preserve of the locals
