US expat seeking temporary job in Singapore!

Postby Scorpiobrooky » Fri, 26 Nov 2004 11:55 am

Hi all! My boyfriend is a US citizen and he is staying here till June 2005. We are renting an apartment and he will be coming here in early December 2004. He is staying with me in Singapore, after which we will be moving back to his hometown in the US.

Back in the US he co-owns a drywall company and has been working in the drywall business for 11 years. He is also capable of doing plastering and his educatonal level is up to high school which he graduated from in 1999. And he's 24 years old. He also has taken up college courses in welding as well as fixing and painting cars.

So we're wondering if he could get a job in Singapore in his line of work for a short term? And he is also open to other types of jobs in a different line too.

One last question is what type of work permit does he need to get for a short term of 6 months or so.

Lookin forward to your reply and great help!

Cheers everyone! :lol:

Are you sure you two passed your math classes? Must have been tough if he started working when he was 13.

Menial labor (including all types of construction work) is done by Indian and Thai laborers with Singaporean supervisors, I suspect a Caucasian would have a fairly tough time finding a job and you'll need to get a local company to offer you a job for that work permit...

Yes we both passed our maths classes. I got a distinction for maths FYI but thanks for being so polite.

Yeah he worked since he was 13 bcos his dad owned a company in drywall so he helped out his dad in his work. And he got his interest from there eversince. And he started his own company when he was 20. That's 24 - 4 = 20. If you're still doing calculations.

Thanks for your help tho I guess we'll look for a different type of job for him here since he doesn't know any local companies here.

If you are currently living in Singapore or will be moving there shortly you cannot miss this great opportunity for employment. Have you ever heard of network marketing? It sometimes gets a bad wrap here in the US, but in Asia some of the most respected and wealthy individuals are full time network marketers. The point is this, MonaVie is a brand new international network marketing company that has its international headquarters in Singapore! The company has just launched in Jan of 2005 and is looking for leaders in Singapore right now. The income potential for someone in network marketing is at its largest and strongest within the first year the company launches. 97% of all network marketing millionaires get involved with their company within the first 24 months of its launch. This opportunity is awaiting you in Singapore. If you want to know more about the product go to www.monavie.com. There is a lot of information on the site and it is all flash, so if you don’t have a high speed connection you might have some problems viewing the site. I would love to send you some free brochures and even an amazing DVD for you to look at. I promise you this is the ultimate job opportunity for anyone going to Asia. Within the next 3 months we hope to be in Thailand and then a month later into Taiwan. In network marketing the greatest thing is you never have to do it alone. I am waiting to assist you in any way I can. Please call right away before too many people before you start to solidify the emerging market in Singapore.
Sincerely,
