  • Finding a job in 2017. Is it harder?

    @qwaszx, @arvs0z, @reyven, @AhKuan

    Tama lahat ng sinabi nila. Though taghirap ngayon sa SG, palagi namang may demand. Basta maximise mo lang stay mo dito. Wag magsasayang ng oras.

    If it's for you, malay mo. Hindi mo malalaman if di mo susubukan.

    Palakasin ko lang loob mo, early this February, nagtry din kami ng GF ko dito sa SG. Despite of all the nega things na sinasabi ng mga tao samin, tinuloy pa din namin. Kasi iba yung nararamdaman namin sa sinasabi nila. Feeling namin para samin ang SG. Everything falls into the right places, yung perang panggastos, yung support ng family namin, mentally, emotionally and financially prepared kami kumbaga. Wala kami kakilala dito. So talagang we started from scratch. Malakas lang talaga loob namin, lalo na si GF. Haha.

    In the end, though there are few misfortunes na nangyari dahil kinailangan namin magexit at nahold kami ng immigration, in a span of 1.5 months, nagkawork kami parehas.

    Now, yung work namin parehas ay 5 days a week lang, ok ang pasweldo, may health insurance at magaan ang trabaho.

    Go lang. Basta wag kakalimutan ang plan B, para when everything else fails, may fallback ka.

    Good luck to you and your partner.

  • Finding a job in 2017. Is it harder?

    @qwaszx , recently I have been a silent reader here. Dati ang sipag ko sumagot ng mga tanong, kaso meron kasing nambara at nambastos sa mga comments ko kaya huminto na lang ako. LOL.

    I remember answering your queries for quite sometime. I don't know if you still remember.

    You are so positive. Good thing yan. Claim it.

    Flashback: I remember my gf pushing me almost everyday to try our luck here sa SG last year. Sya din yung sobrang risk taker saming dalawa. Syempre ako tong takot, ayoko talaga. Pero in the end, I must say na yung risk ng pagpunta namin dito yung isa sa mga turning point ng buhay naming dalawa. Ngayon, nagiipon na ko ng pampakasal namin. LOL.

    Ang motto namin nun ay, kung makahanap ng work, thank you Lord. Kung hindi, thank you Lord pa din.

    Tama ka, maging successful man o hindi, it will be a very meaningful time sa buhay nyo ng bf mo. At least magkasama kayo na susubok.

    I can only wish you and your bf good luck.

    Kung hindi nyo susubukan, "what ifs?" will haunt you for the rest of your lives.

    :)

  • Got rejected twice

    @Dirows, good luck sayo. Ayun naman pala sabi nung isa dito may kakilala daw syang nahire na walang local certification sa teaching sector.

    I just shared yung process ng recruitment sa pinagwoworkan nung gf ko. Kasi nalulungkot sya pag may Pinoy na tumatawag pero wala sya magawa. A year ago, we were in the same position like you na nagbabakasakali.

    Anyways, as long as nagrere-appeal yung employer, wag ka mawalan ng pag-asa. Malay mo makalusot. :)

    God bless to you.

  • Applying for another job..I need your advice guys

    @Kebs and @suezo , in my case medyo pangit ang financial year ngayong taon pero nung nanghingi ako ng increase on my 1st year, binigyan din naman ako. Then yung AL ko from 7 naging 14 na. :) Sana pag nirenew yung pass ko by late 2018 bigyan ulit ako increase. :)

    Pansin ko lang, if feeling mo deserved mo yung increase, wala naman masamang manghingi basta kausapin ng maayos yung boss. Saka dapat talaga kahit anong mangyari, good shot ka sa immediate boss mo.

    @suezo walang masama mag apply kahit naka 2 years na kontrata ka. Kaso make sure mo yung terms and conditions ng contract mo.

    Sakin kasi, I need to render 2 mos. If gusto ko urgent resignation, I have to pay for equivalent 2 mos of my salary. Or if yung company ko ay tinanggal ako, they have to pay me 2 mos of my salary also.

    Ewan ko lang ang sistema kapag agency hired. Yun lang. :)

  • Na offload

    @remcris, if hindi ka naman urgently needed nung company, pakiusapan mo na lang employer mo na hintayin ka, then process mo na agad agad mga papers mo. (Maraming mababait na employers dito, promise.)

    In my case kasi, dahil aalis na yung papalitan ko at dahil magtuturn over pa, sinabi sakin na if hindi ako makakapunta ng SG within a week, ibibigay nila sa iba yung position. (Nagexit kasi ako nun sa Malaysia, buti sa Malaysia lang ako nagexit, dahil kung sa Pinas ako nagexit for sure di ako makakabalik dito sa SG dahil 100% na maooffload ako.)

    Advice for all, tama si @Admin, sumama kayo sa groups or isama si gf/bf pag magtravel. Red flag din talaga if mag-isa ka lang lalabas, on your mid 20's, tapos kinakabahan ka, hindi ka prepared mentally and wala kang dalang bala (meaning documents to prove na turista ka lang talaga). Mas okay yung over-prepared ka. If mag-isa ka pupunta dito and turista ka, dapat peg mo turista talaga. Sabihin mo backpacker ka. Prepare EXTRA EXTRA CASH, CREDIT CARD, 2 WAY TICKETS, HOTEL BOOKINGS, ID FROM PREVIOUS COMPANY to avoid circumstances like this. Wag nang sabihin na may friend ka dito unless 1st degree relative mo yung nandito.

    Kakalungkot. Sana lang talaga maprocess agad papers mo.

    P.S. BEST WAY PA RIN IS LEGAL NA UMALIS SA PINAS. Yung advise ko is if sobrang unavoidable lang talaga at kailangang kailangan ka na ng employer mo. (Or else, ibibigay nila sa iba yung position mo.)

  • Structural Engineer

    @monochrone , usually ang stamp/chop ng passport mo after mo dumaan ng SG immigration SUCCESSFULLY ay 30 days. You can apply for e-extend up to 90 days BUT yun ay if may 1st degree relative ka nandito. Pwede mo itry mag e-extend for another 30 days, kaso malaki chance na mareject. Otherwise wala ka choice but to exit to other countries (Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand or Pinas) then re-enter SG as tourist again.

    Wag ka lang sana malasin at ma-A to A ka agad on your first attempt to enter, or ma-follow the ticket ka ng SG Immigration. Syempre iscrutinize ka din ng immigration ng SG bago ka makapasok ng bansa nila. Pero on your first entry dito, bihira lang naman ata *correct me if I'm wrong* yung denied entry. Usually sa 2nd or 3rd nagkakaproblema.

  • Ano mas matimbang sa MOM: ung tinapos na kurso or yung Work Experience?

    Analysis ko lang to @Admin at @"JAY JAY", RN ka pala sa Pinas. :(. Dito kasi based sa pagkakaalam ko, kung ano yung tinapos mo, dapat yun din yung work mo (aligned dapat). Kaso medyo malayo yung naging experience mo dun sa tinapos mo. Kahit madami kang experience sa Pinas, unless IT grad ka, pagdating mo dito, fresh grad level ka pa din kumbaga. If I were you, gagamitin ko na lang yung tinapos ko as Nurse. Kaso one thing pa ulit, Nursing Aide magiging work mo dito if ever (under work permit yata to) medyo maliit sweldo. Pero may nabasa akong news na magbuboom ulit yung healthcare industry dito for the next few years.

    http://www.channelnewsasia.com/news/singapore/30-000-more-healthcare-workers-needed-by-2020-as-population-ages/3221526.html

    Fair work practice kasi dito SG, rare yung case ng "underemployment". Unlike sa Pinas na ang ganda ng tinapos na course tapos pwede ka mag apply sa kahit anong work. Dito malabo.

    Yun lang. :)

    https://services.mom.gov.sg/sat/satservlet, pwede mo i-assess yung sarili mo using this. Ginamit ko yan nung nagapply ako dito. So far medyo magagauge mo na if maaapprove ka o hindi.

  • Structural Engineer

    @monochrone , mas malaki ang chance mo if yung titirhan mong bahay dito may landline, kasi thru company's website, you can see their direct line, then pag natawagan mo na, ask them to forward your call sa HR department, then you can aggresively ask if may hiring at kung open for foreigners. Ask that person's personal email address as well as yung hrd email address.
    :)

    After a week or two, magfollow up ka sa pinasahan mo ng resume para maassess mo if may mangyayari sa application mo.

    Minsan sswertehin ka pa, Pinoy makakausap mo. Kaso kung sino pa yung ibang mga Pinoy, kala mong may-ari ng kumpanya sa pagka-masungit at sarcastic. Ayun lang. Tibayan mo lang loob mo.

  • Bawiin ang reklamo sabi ng Employer

    @mic, may point din si @aweng kaso sayang binayad mo sa agency. Isa pa, bound ka ng contract at for sure may termination fee pag nagbreak contract ka. So kahit saang way ka lumugar, kailangan mo ng legal counsel. Sana kinausap mo muna yung employer mo before you made any major move. But anyways, anjan na yan. Good luck and sana malusutan mo to.
