How to find a partime job??

Postby funny.kid » Tue, 03 Dec 2013 12:50 am

Hi, I am a foreign student in NTU, currently year 2 mechanical. I used to work for a hotel before, the pay was low and the boss there did not consider me as human, I felt insulted working there. Can any of you please give a advice how to get a part time job ( I can work full time during vacation) with good working condition, would be really appreciate if the job is near to NTU.

I hope you are aware that it is illegal to work on a Student Pass in Singapore. Also, nobody can give advice on general job search, that is up to you to figure out - go to the well-known websites and look for jobs, contact employers directly, the works.

Actually it is legal but strictly under terms and conditions meted out by MOM:

funny.kid, your only option is to work in services industry (like McD and hotels) or in intern-ship related to your field as described by MOM.

Oh alright. Seems to have changed a little since I was a student...

Say...would selling stuff online be considered a part time job?

Let's say you sell clothes you make yourself here in Singapore, but not as a legitimate business, but more like ebay/fb advertise sort of stuff...or perhaps doing favors, web designing for example, and get paid for it on a regular basis. (300 bux a month on average)

Or is it legal, as long as you're not caught? :twisted:
