Tips for job hunting for a newbie.

Hi po. Magandang araw! I'm a fresh graduate po ng BS Industrial Engineering, plan to take up Master of Science in Management Engineering this January 2018. Will be employed po this Nov 2017 as a Process/Quality Engineer. Then may girlfriend po ako na isang fresh graduate din ng BSIE at currently working as a Sales Engineer. Plano po sana namin mag Singapore by July 2019 after ko pong matapos ang Masteral ko to seek for greener pasture.

Ano pa ang tips niyo po na maibibigay po sa amin kasi gusto ko po sanang as early as now meron kaming plano such as anong buwan kami luluwas from PH to SG na madaming job openings sa SG, anong gagawin po namin para makalusot sa immigration ng PH kasi po meron akong nabalitaan na strikto daw ngayon sila for tourist, do we need to send our documents sa kakilala namin or pwedeng kami ang magdala kasi meron akong narinig sa neighbor namin baka makita raw ang document sa scanner ng airpirt, realistic po ba na gusto naming isang kwarto lang kami alone pag nag apply kami kasi as much as I want gusto ko po ng privacy, tips for room for rent, tips for job hunting and lastly po madami bang Engineering jobs sa SG? Salamat po.

  • Budget po naming dalawa is 100, 000 PHP good for 1 month napo kasi I've heard na 1 month daw ang ibibigay ng immigration ng SG.
  • We are also a couple jobhunter pero nasa sg na kami ngayon going on our 2nd month na haha. Same lang kami ng room. Around 100k din budget. At lahat ng kasama namin sa flat ay engineers. Ewan ko lang po kung anu ang lagay kung fresh grad. :)
  • Salamat po boss @qwaszx . Tanong ko lang po magkano po inyong upa sa isa room since solo niyo ang room? May CR bah inside sa room niyo? Magkano po budget ng room/pub, food and transpo?

    Actually po 2019 pa kami pupunta dyan so assume po na may 1.5yrs Process Engr experience ako at Masters degree. Si GF naman assuming 2.5 yrs na bilang Sales Engineer.

    Okay ba ang Industrial Engineer dyan?
  • 700 sgd po upa namin excluded pa po yung pub. Sharing ang cr. Pero marami pang mas mura dyan. Sobrang bait lang ng main tenant namin kaya di kami naghanap ng mas mura sa 2nd month. Medyo magastos at mapasyal kami, first timers kasi, kaya naka budget kami ng 50 sgd per day. Minsan 30 sgd ok na. Siguro para super safe dala nalang kayo mga 150k kasi baka tumaas sgd ulit by 2019. Hehe.

    Actually hindi ko po kasi alam mga klase ng engineer e haha. Alam ko lang madaming engineer lol. Mej malayo kasi ako nasa hotel industry ako si bf naman nursing. Pero ako 2.5 years lang work exp ko.
  • I see @qwaszx pero magkano po iyong room na may cr and shared kitchen? Baka meron kayong estimate po.

    Sana po okay ang Industrial/Manufacturing Engineering. Hopefully maging okay lahat pag punt namin diyan.

    Pwede din po na 150k pero baka hindi naman makuha ang desired budget pero lets try to see po.

    Maybe we will try po passing resume thru online pag walang reply talaga with in 3 months baka na kami dyan.
  • Hmm. Di ko po sure siguro budget nyo nalang at 800 to 900. Basta lagi lang kayo mag extra. Try natin hintayin mga response ng mga batikan natin dito.
  • Back read nyo guys eto http://pinoysg.net/discussion/1296/sg-expenses-good-for-1month

    masakit talaga sa bulsa try kasi gamble talaga. especially now na tagtuyot sa SG. ganun din alam ko sa ibang bansa.
  • Basta ang baseline diyan eh 100k pesos per person per month. Tipid na yan, bedspace sa HDB, kain sa hawker/fast food, mga 1x/2x a week sa restaurant. Pasyal lang sa mga free entry attractions, walang pasyal sa mga paid attractions, lalabas lang kung may interview. You'll go beyond that kung araw araw ka lalabas, mamamasyal sa paid attractions, kakain sa mas mahal na kainan.
  • Salamat po @Admin and @tambay7 . Yes po nabackread ko na and medyo may nalaman na po ako sa expenses so we really need talaga to save pang gastos diyan.

    Tanong ko lang po, okay ba ang Industrial Engineer or Manufacturing Engineer diyan sa SG? Ilang years po ba dapat ang experience?
  • @isyot1994 you can get a gauge on the job market for IE and ME sa mga job portals dito. Meron pa din naman pero not a strong as previous years, kasi lately may pagbaba ng manufacturing dito dahil nag shift ibang investors sa ibang bansa. Pero isa pa din naman ata manufacturing sa primary industry sa Sg. Yun nga lang as foreigner you have to be really skilled/experienced. Expect na most company job posts will still favor local/pr for the jobs dahil mandated na ng government na sila ang unahin, kaya expect intense competition sa job hunt.

  • Okay salamat po @tambay7 so it means po talaga i should have at least 5yrs work exp tama po bah?
  • @isyot1994 dito kasi sa SG, experience on the job/industry you're applying really matters. Forget about sa sinasabi nila na dapat galing ka top school sa Pinas, doesn't matter. Relevant and significant experience kung gusto mo magka edge against other applicants. Kung newbie/intermediate skills/experience kasi, definitely mas marami kang kalaban na candidate, di ka mag stand out.

  • @tambay7 salamat po, this means po I need streghten my plans para pag punta dyan sureball na.

    Priority 1: Experience related to my degree.
    Priority 2: Higher Educ. Attainment (though some may say na okay na basta college grad pero education is a self pride for me)
    Priority 3: Other skills since di naman healthy kung puro nalang utak
