Accounting firms. PWC, KPMG, E&Y, Deloitte Touche?

Im from korea and now in singapore.
I always have huge interest in working abroad and have 3 years of experiences in big 4.
these last few days, my resume was submited to not only korean companies, but also big 4 in singapore.
i`ve already known two or three native languages as a singaporean are bragging point and could be really competitive edge over the asia.
but, hope you give me a more tailored answer and useful advice for my job application here.

1. from the moment of submitting a resume, how long does it take to get notice for interview table?

You are not fresh grad. You already know the answer.

2. and wanna know about job market for foreigner as of now.

What sms said.. but based on your experience, I think you would stand a better chance than those working for whatever firms.

Many thanks in advance.


At sms, sorry thread jack. What kind of jobs are highly demanded atm?

Is engineering considered highly demanded?
