College undergrad but 12 years work experience

Magandang umaga mga kababayan. I finally decided to try my luck dyan sa SG. Matagal ko na gusto i try since I was 25 years old. 31 na ako ngayon and gusto ko lang ma close itong chapter ko ng buhay ko lol. So right now, I am working sa isang magandang company dito sa Pinas for 7 years now (the rest of work experience puro BPO na). I'm a Recruiting Manager. Believe it or not, hindi ako nakatapos ng college. But 23 pa lang na promote na ako na Team Lead sa isang BPO dati. Sinisipagan ko talaga mag work kasi I know with my lack of degree, I need to compensate for something else. Long story short, slim ba talaga ang chance ko there sa SG knowing na college undergrad ako (75 units lang in college)? Gustong gusto ko na kasi mag shift ng career sa Sales or Retail. Kahit waitress gustong gusto ko! But I know hindi ako papasa sa MOM. Any tips for me? Masipag ako like our fellow kababayans :) I already sold my car (kahit di ako nakatapos nakabili ako brand new car, sariling sikap) as additional expense ko dyan. I just want a different environment and a shift in career. Any insights will do. Salamat mga kababayan.

  • Nakasagot nako sa kabilang thread. For me, kung extra money mo lang yung gagastusin mo dito and willing ka mawala yun, go girl. Youll never know hanggat di mo tnatry, malay ntn kht hs grad may chance pala. Pero kung sobrang last money mo na yung dadalhin mo dito, if i were u gagamitin ko nlng un para magaral? Or take courses na magkakacertificate ako na magagamit ko for future plans.
  • @gary_garlic, ako yung kinakabahan sa gagawin mo. Nabasa ko na mga replies nila @maya sayo dun sa kabilang thread at dito and imo sobrang risky ng gagawin mo.

    The way ka magkwento, I believe napakaganda ng work na iiwan mo jan sa atin. The fact na nakabili ka ng sasakyan then you sold it to try your luck here, I admire your determination.

    Pero kung buong life savings mo yung gagastusin mo, if I were you, I will think twice. The odds are not (really) in your favor.

    But who am I to tell you what to do? I've been in that same situation and I can only wish you good luck.

    God bless. :)
  • Kaya nga eh, sayang naman ung work mo. At least nagleave kna lang muna sana para sakali may babalikan ka pang work.

  • As far as I know sa current flow ng foreign hiring, preferred dito sa SG eh College Graduate po. naghihigpit na ang Ministry of Manpower (MOM) sa qualification ng foreign hire. Marami na rin ang di nakapagpa-renew ng contract dito kasi di sila Degree holder.

    Kung gusto mo makipagsapalaran, go ahead po. Kanya kanya po tyo ng kapalaran. Mas mahigpit na po talaga starting 2-3 years ago dito. Good luck po.

    This is not to sound negative sa iyo po, but this is a reality here in SG. Also, wag po kayong gagamit ng peke na dokumento lalo na College Diploma or Grades... karamihan ngayon ng legal recruiters dito eh nagche-check na sa mga schools kung valid ung binigay mong school records. Kung nakalusot ka man, malaki pa rin ang chance na malalaman un at mapapakulong ka. so DON'T DO IT.
  • ano hawak mong school credentials sa ngayon? na makakapag patunay na undergrad ka..

    Thank you sa replies, no intention of falsifying documents, super scary. @Vincent17 meron ako TOR from college and high school diploma. Sobrang risky talaga ng gagawin ko.. @maya napaisip ako dun sa sabi mo about getting a diploma or a certificate... Ang tigas lang talaga ng ulo ko na gusto ko ng closure at talagang ma reject ako in my face :| I got another call this morning from a direct company there in SG, i have an interview when I get there. Try ko lang, sana palarin. If not, i tried.
  • Education, experience, salary, job title offered, kailangan related lahat para maapprove ang pass. Ano pala course mo nung college?
  • @maya Psychology po, and nasa Recruitment ako ngayon. 7 years within HR function, 2 years Recruitment. The job offer is for Recruiting din there. Total years of working, 12. Nandyan ako sa April, hoping to meet fellow pinoys here in pinoysg din hehehe :)
  • April pero may interview schedule kna at this early? Wow. Pag natanggap ka and inapprove ng MOM ang pass mo edi good news para sa lahat un. Ibig sabihin may pag-asa naman pala. Iisa pa lang kasi kakilala kong hindi college grad pero naapprove ng spass. Tesda cert + experience na very rare. Fibre optics engineer naman yun.

    Yes @maya and after the phone interview nag send na follow up email. Not an agency din. Sobrang nakakalakas ng loob and made me want to push hard talaga. Pero hindi pa rin ako aasa and magsssend pa rin ako 100 resumes a day paglapag ko dyan. Plus if manghingi ng pera before job offer, alam na scam pala. Pero ni research ko company and maganda naman. Balitaan ko kayo friends, sana palarin.
  • Feeling ko kahit ano sabihin ng mga tao gagawin mo pa rin! So go na yan.. itaya mo na... You gotta be in it, to win it!!! Kung ako gagawin ko, you don't wanna be on your death bed wondering what if.......

  • @JuanDeLaCruz gagawin ko na talaga no turning back na ko kasi nagpaalam na rin ako sa office so unemploymed na ko in 2months haha! Pag hindi ako success gagawin ko sinabi ni @maya , take cert courses and try again. Habang malakas pa! Hehehe.
  • Hala, ganun ba kalala sa pinas para iwan mo yung trabaho mo? Check https://services.mom.gov.sg before you try. you would need relevant work experience too
