Need Advice sa mga Matatagal na SG

edited May 6 in Job Openings
Kabayans, hingi lang po ng advice.

Im a civil engineer with 17 years of experience. Nag try ako mag SG with a hope na makakahanap ako ng work dito. Kaya lang start na po ng 3rd week ko dito at wala pa din po ako nakikitang liwanag sa mga applications ko. Medyo nawawalan na ng pag asa.

Ngayon po, hindi ko alam kung ok ba na magpatuloy pa ako at mag extend ng stay dito sa SG o umuwi na lang ng luhaan sa Pinas.Tinitimbang ko din po kasi yung gastos ko against sa chances ko na makahanap talaga ng work dito.

Ano po ba maipapayo ninyo lalo na po yung mga datihan at veterano na po dito sa SG. Salamat po.

  • Bawat isa pong aplikante ay may kanya kanyang kaso at swerte. Pero kung pursigido at handa gumastos maglaan ka ng 3 buwan sa paghahanap ng trabaho. Pero kung gusto mo lang tikman ang tubig bago lumipas ang 30 day svp mo umuwi kana at pagplanuhan ulit ang susunod na hakbang.

    Be patient, send lang ng send, since nandito ka na, apply lang ng apply. Pwede ka namang mag extend. Tama si bong may mga naka 3 months, and i am one before. God bless you
  • yup talagang kung gusto mo talaga magka work dto your budget must be up to 3months meron din ako dati office mate from philippines naka 3 months sila mag stay dto bago sila nagka work.....worth it naman daw ang pag aantay nila...so far they are still here at SG and surviving
  • Thank you @Bert_Logan. Pinanghihinaan lang ng loob. Buti na lang may pinoysg... Thank you ulit guys!
  • I'm not sure if Civil Engrs are in demand sa SG..especially the current economic cycle. If SG was booming then yes that would be a good time spin the wheel and try your luck. But in today's climate, mas keylangan ngayon Civil Engrs sa developing countries like Pinas...
  • @JuanDeLaCruz mukha naman maganda pa ang market ng infrastructure sa SG. Its not as good as before pero at least stable. Tuloy tuloy pa din naman kasi ang expansion nila. Tsaka ang dami pa rin vacancy sa field ng CE sa mga job portlas. Mahirap lang siguro makahanap kasi foreigner ang status ko.
  • I guess yan din ang main hurdle ng mga kababayan natin in terms of job hunting.

    @pigsheep but that's exactly my point. It's "stable" but not growing. Foreigners in general (theoretically speaking anyway) only fill in for excess demand for any job sector and that only happens when the business cycle is in a boom, which it isn't.

    After a crash or recession downturn, governments usually create demand by overspending on infra projects, so who knows, baka maka lusot when that happens....

    Anyway, nasa sayo din na man yan, kung kaya ng budget mo, then keep spinning the wheel...

    (BTW, housemates ko dito sa SG, Civil Engineering din natapos nila, pero jobs nila ay sa I.T.)
  • grabe si @JuanDeLaCruz oh....... 12:09 AM nag reply natutulog ka pa ba.....lol

    @JuanDeLaCruz do you really think its a waste of resources to extend my stay here and just go back home?
  • @pigsheep well since ur here na why not give it another month if ur budget will allow it..

    @Bert_Logan am always on the look out for MLM trolls to abuse..... hehe
  • Haha. Up to epic mlm
  • @pigsheep gaya ng hint ni @panday.....pwede ka mag venture ng iba work wag ka mag stick sa pagiging CE....

    If your budget and patience can still handle it, feel free to keep on trying.
    Basta always consider din yung stay dito na 3mos, you need 120-150k pesos, think of the other better ways to invest that amount.
  • @tambay7 @Bert_Logan @JuanDeLaCruz Thanks for the advice. decided na ako to try extend my svp.
  • MLM means multi level marketing po....
  • Good day po! matanong lang po paano niyo inapply sa svp yung 3 months stay?
  • @loydxtian kapag may nearest consanguinity ka na PR/local.
  • wala pong 3 months na svp...they mean that there is a possibility na pwede ka mag stay up to 3 months..... via first kung makapasok ka po dto sg tatakan ng immigration ng SG ung passport mo na good for 1month you can stay......

    2nd....pwede mo extend ung SVP mo thru online..at pag na approve they will allow you to stay for another month.
    3rd ....pag nag mag expire na ung online SVP mo....then your choice is to go out to the neighbor country like Malaysia, Indonesia.... you can stay or balikan ....pag nakalusot ka sa immig ng nilabasan mo na country at ini allow ka ng IO dto ...then they will stamp again your PP for another month....
  • ang ginawa ko na kasi so far yung lumabas kami ng malaysia nag legoland lang, then pabalik naharang pa ako sa SG immig kala ko di ako maextend ng another 30 days pero na tatakan naman ng another 30days. prone daw kasi sa rejection yung online application for extension ng svp. salamat sa pagsagot
  • @Bert_Logan I also thought na pwede na agad I apply yung 2months extension, hindi pala ganun... Salamat naliwanagan ako...
  • Kwento ko lang mga citizens of:
    - All EU countries
    - Australia
    - Norway
    - South Korea
    - Switzerland
    - USA

    ...pwedeng 90 days tourist visa. So yung mga kababayan na gustong makipagsapalaran sa SG na may hawak ng dual citizenship, ang saya. Yung isa kong ka tropa yung missis nya nakakuha ng Aus passport tapos meron din Pinas passport, so nung nakakuha yung lalaki ng trabaho sa SG, nag decide na lang sila na sa SG na lang muna para magsama sila. So yung misis 6 months bago nakakuha ng trabaho sa SG, ginawa nya labas pasok 90 days Aus tapos 30 days pinas tapos 90 days Aus ulet na walang hanggan hehe astig!!
  • mga pinagpala!.... hehehe...
  • @pigsheep goodluck satin pre! Mukhang sabay tayo mag exit. Hehe
  • @batmanburger mukhang maiiwan pa ako dito pre. kaka approved lang po ng request for extension ng svp ko. I'll give it another try, sana this time palarin na na matanggap na ako sa trabaho.
