  • 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.

    :)

  • ECE and CE

    @glaidizon you have to assess the risks. Pero if I were you, kukuha muna ako ng solid experience sa Pinas para ready at mas maganda yung resume ko pag minarket ko.

    Pero everything is possible. Nasa swerte din at pagiging resourceful yan sa paghahanap ng work specially pag nandito ka na.

  • Feeling Left Out

    Same kami ni @arvs0z ng way of living. LOL.

    30% for recurring expenses here in SG and sa PH
    10% for luho and other gastos
    60% for savings (minsan less, never naging more)

    Iwas iwas sa mga malls kasi nakakatukso. :)

    @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.)

  • Looking for a job

    Basta be wise sa pagbabayad. Okay lang kamo na bayaran mo yung agency fee basta approved na pass mo. Good luck. :)

  • 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.

  • Tips para sa job interview

    @mareeya_ , grabe naman yung $1.4k. Hanap na lang ulit ng iba. As a skilled professional, wag kang kukuha ng lower than $2.2k. Legal requirement yun ng MoM for SPass.

    @remcris, normal process yun sa Immigration. Tinitingnan nila email mo, facebook conversation, pati lahat ng documents na dala mo. Si GF, naoffice nung papasok dito ng SG (kaso from Malaysia nga lang), binulatlat gamit nya, cellphone nya, enail nya, fb nya, pati nga daw undies nya nailabas sa maleta. Good thing, nilinis namin lahat ng conversation, sent messages kaya wala nakita yung IO. Kaso, nafollow the ticket pa din sya. Ganyan talaga kahirap. :(
