Sir madali mag-apply, pero ang hindi sigurado kung iapprove ng SG ang work pass. :lol:
No, sir its not madali to apply. If you are referring to sitting all day submitting cv online oo madali nga pero landing an interview is a different thing.

Kasi some employers/headhunters nowadays mismo ang naiwas n rin sa pagkuha ng foreigners kasi mga clients nila are specifically asking for locals/pr so ang siste nadededma ang mga foreign applicants most of the time - regardless kung may extensive experience n yung applicant sa sg mismo or not.

I got tons of calls from dozens of employers who's attracted to my exp alone pero since PRIORITY na ang locals/pr ngayon, set aside n nila application ko. Walang pang 2 minutes tapos na usapan.

Sure you can try to find work in sg, hindi naman kasi totally pinagbbawalan ang mga foreigner sa sg, pagdasal mo n nga lang na you could land an interview kasi dun mo malalaman if you have a good chance, if not, move on.

Last na balita ko, magbabago n naman ang procedures in getting foreigners this coming july so things are gonna be tricky for ALL foreigners lalo na yung mga bagong salta lang. This is across all LOB kahit p mga pr n mismo nangangamba at mga renewal ng existing work passes ay medyo pahirapan n tlaga.

Uulitin ko, yes you have a chance but expect the worst.

Yup, this is what I am referring to. It is relatively "easy" to look for a job, but finding one is a different story altogether.

Sure madali pumunta ng SG, and sure maganda dito, but remember, nakikipag-sapalaran ka pa din with your own time and money. So kung meron man magbalak na pumunta dito, planuhin ng mabuti at alamin lahat ng malalaman.

dati ganyan din ako mag advice sa mga kakilala ko. Yung tipong "come at your own risk" pero ngayon hindi na ko nagpapagod mag bigay ng payo kasi 99% ng mga bagong salta ko n kakilala fails to land a single interview sa 1 month stay nila kht pa anong sipag nila sa pag apply - ako mismo nagsasabi wag n sila mag attempt lalo pa bagong salta sila at medyo hindi sapat ang exp kasi for sure dededmahin lang application mo, unless kakaiba at in demand ang LOB n papasukan mo.

Sinasabi ko n lang sayang lang pera at pagod nyo, maigi manatili n lang kayo sa pinas for your own good.

sa sg? well, like i said, wag garapal yung tipong magdamag walang patayan kaka torrent lang.

Sa mga hindi nakakaalam kung pano nagkakahulihan, ganito yan: per hdb block merong assigned na linya for broadband so pag may isang nag reklamo na nababagalan sila kahit naka fibre sila ang siste itatawag ng user sa telco yan. So naturally SOP ng mga tech support ang mag investigate at pag nakita na umaagaw sa bandwidth eh isang user lang medyo ma-flag na nila yun.

Im no IT expert so unsure din ako sa technical details ng procedure na to pero sa tagal ko sa sg, wala pa ko naexperience personally n kinatok kami ng telco or pulis bec of illegal downloads, ang nag confirm sa kin ng ganitong procedure is mga kakilala ko mismo na IT at ibang kilala ko n nagwwork sa ibang telco din. May technique para maiwasan to at manatiling "under the radar" pero hindi ko na sabihin. Just keep it safe and wag n lang ggarapal talaga like i mentioned sa taas. Kaya nga karamihan sa min we just do streaming para sure n safe ka talaga.

Sa mga hindi naniniwala sa kin, research nyo sa google ang "ODEX case" way back 2007. Dun nyo makikita kung gaano ka-efficient sa pag monitor at pag exercise ng full extent ng law ang sg when it comes to file sharing.

It all comes down to common sense really. :lol:

Pag pumunta kayo sa singapore saan kayo pumupuntang website para bumili ng package tour with flight, hotel and transportation included? Or mas okay bumili sa travel agency? Balak namin kasi mag tour pag umuwi ako ng pilipinas sa april. Thanks!

I'll be in Singapore on April 24th! Will go there to find a job! Sa ngayon nasa Saudi pa ako pero pauwi na in two weeks, Civil Engineer with almost 5 years of Exp in the North Africa and Middle East. Wish me luck guys! Although tutulungan ako ng mga classmates ko na nasa SG na for two years, sana makahanap agad ng work! :pray: :grin:

guys ask ko lang how's the Tax Rate jan.. 20% daw according to Sen.Angara.
May proposed bill siya na ibaba ang tax ng employees dito sa Pinas from the existing 32-35% down to 25%.
para daw maibsan ang poverty at kung anong talo daw ng Tax Collection eh mababawi sa pagtaas ng spending power ng consumers.

Goodluck and try not to expect much. Nabilinan ka na ba s status ng hiring s sg about foreigners in detail ng mga friends mo? Kung hindi pa uunahan n kita. Kahit pa may referral ka hindi 100% guarantee na magkaka work ka, kahit pa nagustuhan ka ng employer wala din guarantee na makakakuha ka ng work pass. Priority nila ang LOCALS/PR ngayon regardless of experience na meron ka, sa lahat ng foreigners pa to. Dami ko kakilala at naging housemate dati na sumugal at dahil misinformed sila s lakaran ng kuhanan ng foreigners, and ending umuwi silang walang work. Pero kanya kanyang swerte pa din yan, who knows db?

Dont believe me? then ask your friends in sg.

Yup yup! Sinabi nila sakin yan, pero positive lang din sila para sakin. Last November nagka work na din yung isang tropa within 2 weeks niya sa SG. Positive lang ako kung para sakin ang SG ibibigay din yan. I'll just do my best and keep on keeping on kapag andiyan na ko. Btw, sinabi din sa mga classmates/tropa ko na andiyan na baka di din sila makahanap ng work dahil nga priority eh locals pero awa ng diyos lahat sila nagka work. :hug:

For now I'll do my research and tambay din sa pinoysg forum at the same time submit submit na din ng CV online.
