“Make A Good Planning. Preparation will save you, your time, money and effort. Always pray for guidance.”
My Job Hunter Guidelines:
1. You Need A Room, My Friend.
Everyone needs a place to stay. Make an inventory of your friends or relatives whom are working or living in Singapore and asked them if they can help you find a temporary place to stay.
2. Money, your fuel to execute your plans.
Save as much money as you can to cover your basic needs like food, lodging, transportation, mobile prepaid cards, internet connection, etc. When you run short of money in the middle of your journey, ask help from your friends or relatives. Just make sure that you pay them back once you found a job.
4. Resume, your first key to your employer’s door.
Make your resume look neat and clean. Update your home address and mobile number to a Singapore address and mobile number. Put in your best current picture, the one that looks very professional and not the ones used in your Facebook profile picture. Include in your resume all the relevant information relating to the job you’re applying for. But, take note of this, all information in your resume must be real and much better if you have the certificates as proof that everything you put in your resume is legit. I said real, okay? Don’t ever think of submitting fake documents from Recto University.
5. Documents, proof of your worth.
Like what I mentioned in item number 4, all information in your resume must be legit. Prepare CLEAR hard copy and soft copy of all your documents. Employers will ask you to send them your documents via email and those same documents are the ones your employer sends to MOM (Ministry of Manpower) when they apply for your pass. So again, make sure your documents are CLEAR COPY AND AUTHENTIC.
6. Laptop or PC & Internet Connection.
These are your major tools to search for jobs online. Create as many account as you can on every online job search website you can find. You can refer to the links I’ve provided at the bottom. Wake up early in the morning and start searching. Remember, you’re not the only job hunter around. The competition is big. Be persistent. Search for new job postings at least three times a day. Morning, afternoon and evening. The more applications you send the bigger chance you have of landing an interview.
7. Mobile Phone & Email, receivers of good opportunities.
Before you send job applications, buy a Singtel, M1 or Starhub sim card and make sure you update your resume and your online job profiles with your new number and home address in Singapore. Then you can start sending job applications. When you’re done sending job applications, always be alert and make sure your phone is always with you. Turn up the volume of your phone and make sure the battery is always full and that your phone has enough load. If not, you might miss a call. Also, check your email from time to time for job interview invitations.
8. Attire, the presentation of yourself.
Now is your job interview. Don’t blew it up. You worked hard sending hundreds of applications every day. You have invested your time, money and effort. Don’t blew it up by wearing lousy attire. Dress up like a real professional. You should invest on your attire to look sharp and presentable in the eyes of your potential employer. Be confident. Be smooth and clear when you speak. Pay attention. Stay alert, stay alive.
Good luck! You will succeed!
Magandang araw po sa lahat! Gusto ko lang po i-share itong natutunan ko sa dati kong IT manager na ngayon ay IT Director na sa isang ICT company diyan sa Singapore. Nitong nakaraang araw lang po nagkausap kami, tinanong ko siya kung ano ba ang pinagbabasihan nila sa pagpili ng candidate. Kung yung mga candidates na may IT certificates + experience ba ay malaki ang advantage over sa mga candidates na walang IT certificates pero may experience.
Ang sagot niya, when shortlisting candidates, mahalaga yung qualification at experience na nakalagay sa resume ng candidate, may advantage yung candidate na may IT certificate + experience kumpara sa candidate na walang IT certificate pero may experience. Pero it is an advantage for first impression only.
The other very important part na inoobserbahan talaga nila is yung attitude at mentality ng candidate during the interview. Hindi ko alam kung paano nila nagagawa yun methodically pero I'm sure they trained for it at siyempre through their years of experience na rin. Attitude and mentality is very important daw so the candidate can work well with the team. So kahit maraming IT certificates + relevant experience ang candidate, pero kung hindi pumasa sa attitude and mentality test no use din.
In summary, importante ang mga ito:
1. IT Certificates or certificates that is relevant to your field of work at relevant experience para mapansin ka ng employer at mabigyan ka ng interview.
2. Good attitude at mentality para magustuhan ka ng employer at I-apply ka ng pass from government.
Pinaka importante: Pray for guidance ang grace from GOD. At keep sending applications.
@geneFlynn @carpejem @maya Maraming salamat po kabayan I expect na hindi madali ito pero hindi rin imposible. Sabi nga sa navy seal training 'ring the bell' if you want to quit. Let's not ring the bell. Put God first in everything we do and say thank you for everything and at the end of the day bago matulog. Na-experience ko na before in 2012 nag tourist ako sa SG to look for a job, matindi talaga ang pressure, bawat araw na lumilipas na wala akong natatanggap na tawag, tapos palapit ng palapit yung expiration date ng tourist visa ko, unti-unti ding nauubos yung budget kahit sobrang tipid na. Thru God's grace before mag expire yung visa extension ko dumating yung IPA ko, nagpa-medical ako at nakapag simula na sa work. Just trust in God's timing yun ang isang bagay na natutunan ko. Good luck po ulit sating mga jobseekers. God bless po!
Hello mga kabayan, bagong member po ako dito, hope everyone is having a good day lalo na tayong mga job seekers. I worked in SG before sa I.T. field and after 2 years bumalik ako sa Pinas para dito ulit mag work and to take care of my son na at that time 6 months old pa lang. Ngayon 5 years old na sya pwede na ulit akong mag work overseas. Nag start na ulit akong maghanap ng work diyan sa SG via online application, yung address at contact# ko Singaporean ang nilagay ko. Hopefully makatanggap ako ng interview via Skype or calls. Let’s see. Good luck po sa mga job seekers just keep sending applications, keep praying for guidance at mabigyan tayo ng hanap buhay diyan sa SG. Di baleng mawalan ka ng pang budget basta Huwag kang mawawalan ng pag-asa kabayan.
