Need advise on Pre-sales career & EP (Dependant)

Postby ynreddy.1981 » Thu, 11 Oct 2012 12:18 pm

Hi All,

This is Naveen. I'm from India and now working in Malaysia. I'm into Java Development, from past 5.6 yrs.

Now I would like to get into Pre-sales in Singapore(my dream career). I tried applying all related Jobs in the Singapore Job portals. But I'm not getting calls. Could some one suggest me the best approach to get into.

Also I've a dependent mother. I heard regular EP wont allow, parents as dependent.

So is it possible to move into Singapore along with my mother and get into Pre-sales career. Please guide me. Any little information would help me alot. Please let me know.

You can reach me at ynreddy.1981@gmail.com.

Thanks in advance.

Regards
Naveen

In case you do not know how to find: http://www.mom.gov.sg/foreign-manpower/passes-visas/employment-pass/before-you-apply/Pages/default.aspx

Look under Passes for Family Members for your mother's case. Only certain EP allows mothers to be brought in under LTSVP.

+1, Pre-sales - in Singapore context, has drifted to SALES, per-se .. and the govt is going back to pre 2000 standards - Sales Jobs should not go to Foreigners ...

So tell me again, what would qualify you as a fit, when you are into Java Development, and want to get into Pre-sales ?

Did you really mean Sales - i.e. low salary with quota / targets to meet to get commissions ?

Well, it's not a good time since gahmen draws the "line". The applications from foreigners without rare skills are, most likely, rejected.

I thought working in Malaysia is not that bad (CMIIW) :P

You're not experienced enough yet. Wait until you have 6.2389 years experience, that's the magic number

If I go my the 'latest trends' I am sure he did mean 5.6 years ;)

A lot of resumes now specifically state 7.3 years of experience, or 4.9 years of experience .. I was told it means 7 years, and 3 months for former, and 4 years and 9 months for the latter..

You have to admit, though, saying one year and one month as a decimal is just as bad. 1.0833 years :lol:
