^ pano po makahanap ng work dito sa SG kung hindi ka IT?

You need to apply online.  Jobstreet, Jobsdb, indeed.  But they are quite strict now sa pass (Work pass, S pass, E pass).

Pwede naman sis makahanap maski di ka IT. Ako from 2011-2017 nasa HR Field, ngayon nasa Hospitality na. Tsambahan lang din kasi. Need ng lakas, tibay ng loob, panggastos na malaki at sipag sa pag-aapply online ng bongga. Good luck!

This thread has been quiet for months. Any news on job hunting prospects in Singapore?

I just returned from a quick Singapore trip. I have a renewed desire to look for work there - been wanting to move since 2009. I am a finance professional.

Hope our dear OFW's are doing well! :)

I heard from my colleagues in SG office na nag-taas daw ng minimum sahod for foreign workers ang SG at super strict na nga para lang makakuha ng pass.  Mahirap nga daw kumuha ng renewal visa ngayon if you are  working there dahil sa ginawa nila na pagtaas.  Me mga iba na di na nagrenew, yong iba naman nag change from regular employee to contractual para lang makapag-renew.

Kaya advise ko pa rin, apply thru job sites.

^the right process is that your HR must secure u a work permit or visa since you will be working in SG. same thing happened to my friend but in HK naman, she was trained in HK but with tourist visa only, since 14 days lang ang tourist visa for Filipinos, nag-exit cia sa Macau kasi hindi kinaya ng 14 days ang training nya. Her company in PH is a big shared service, not sure why their HR did not secure them (yes, may mga kasama cia na sa PH naman bumalik or exit) a working visa. Nakakatakot ganyan kasi baka mahuli ka working but having tourist visa only.

Hi sis, work permit / pass application take about minimum 2-3 weeks. Lalo na if it's new application - it can take as long as 1month to have it processed by the government. Hope this helps.

update lang po regarding question ko if need ng business visa for training, as per HR, no need na daw to request for visa, they'll send a training invite na lang daw which i can present sa IO. they can also provide a COE if i need more documentation.

^hi sis! Thanks for updating us. Btw, have u asked your HR On what will be your response in case IOs will ask of your purpose? Technically kc u will enter SG still as tourist.

Here are the possibilities:
Tourist - IOs might ask for RT tickets, itinerary and accommodation.
Training - IOs might ask for your working visa or any equivalent visa and other documents from your employer in PH and mother company in SG.

I suggest if you will enter as tourist, ensure that your RT ticket is not too long, suspicious na kc as job hunting ang purpose pag like 1 month ang stay sa SG. For the documents, do not show them to IOs unless they asked for it.

Update us again. 😊😊😊

^for the ticket, planning to get 1 week lang, Sun - Sat, will likely stay in 2 hotels kasi 4 days lang talaga yung training, will need to check out na by Thursday and i'll book a cheaper hotel na lang for the rest of the stay.

for the other docs, the company will provide coe and training invite. they'll pay for the tix din once booking has been made, yung hotel naman na covered ng training will be reimbursed na lang. ang sabi sa amin, pagbalik daw namin dito sa office, file the reimbursements na lang for the hotel and other expenses via the reimbursement tool and it'll be credited naman daw agad.
