I don't know why, but this thread made me think of....

How about this: try this tool from MoM -> http://sat.mom.gov.sg/satservlet

No one can guarantee the result provided by the tool and the real result, but give it a try (although 2200 for O&G is too cheap, I think).


+1.

the SAT MOM tool is the only option that you can try.

Trying to get an EP or S Pass without working experience < 2 years will be very tough.

Yes, but what relevant experience do you have? You just graduated recently and did then three months as an intern in a pharma company - how does that qualify you for a job in the O&G sector? Keep in mind that there are thousands of recent grads here in Singapore who are looking for their first 'proper' job.

thanks.. for the same sir.

In addition to that Ive done few dipoma courses on Industrial Automations and AutoCAD.

It say you're likely but it doesn't say that you will get it. It is just a guidance tool.

Then what are you waiting for. Go for it. Sounds like you are in like Flint. Next stop, land of milk & honey (or tea oO & kaya toast). But don't forget what we've said here either. Always have a Plan B and don't spend you last dollar cause things here have a way of not working out.

This means he has enough that they will accept his application for consideration. It does not mean he will be ultimately given a work visa. It just means he meets the criteria to apply only.

Additionally, each company has a quota for S-Pass holder. If the company doesn't have enough, well... :roll:

Indeed, and this is what I indicated in my second post above, but the OP seems determined to ignore that point.

Good point.

midhunrahul, if you do manage to secure a job offer and the employer submits an S Pass application, please do update this thread with the outcome as that may be helpful to other people in future.

1. Bachular degree in BE electrical from Anna University,Chennai.
2.CGPA:7/10
3.Graduated in April 2013-full time
4.Underwent intern in Orchid pharma from May-july 2013(3 months)

My uncle currently works in singapore, he works in top most managerial position in an most prestigious firm.He assured me to get me a job in Oil&gas sector for sure. But I come to know that MOM,singapore started screening visas and passes more seriously. If i get 2200SGD pm, am i eligible to hold S pass???SAT test resulted "Im likely to eligible for S pass". But on the fresher basics will i get rejected???PLS DO SUGGEST YOUR OPINIONS!!![/i]


Dude! With a bachelors degree from an Indian university and no experience, you are really aiming for the moon, in terms of expecting a job offer in Singapore.

Just think about it, aren't there fresh grads coming out of SG polys and universities? Shouldn't they be given the opportunity considering they spend a bomb on their education and its "THEIR" country. I would be really surprised if you get the S Pass, given all the tightening that is going on, in the foreign labor market.

Realistically you should spend 3-4 years working in India, before even thinking of coming over.
