    Things I'd bring going to SG

    1. Passport with atleast 10 months validity - for Immigration/Work purposes
    2. Return ticket SG to MNL - for Immigration purposes
    3. Hotel Accomodation - for Immigration purposes
    4. Company ID - for Immigration purposes
    5. Certificate of Employment Letter - for Immigration purposes
    6. Payslip for the past 3 months (Soft Copy) - for employment purposes
    7. 2x2 ID Picture (Soft Copy) - for employment purposes
    8. Diploma (Soft Copy) - for employment purposes
    9. Other Work related certifications or credentials (Soft Copy) - for employment purposes

    Tips:

    1. 2 weeks or earlier mag apply na online bago pumunta sa SG. Much better bago pumunta ay may naka line up ka nang interview.
    2. Mag praktis ng mga Q & A for interviews. kelangan handa sa mga tanong. madami kang ka competition if pumunta ka ng after CNY. Though, base on my experience madami naman opening kaya patas lang.
    3. Mas ok pumunta ng kasama GF/BF/Asawa para hindi paghinlaan ng Immigration Officer na maghahanap ka dito ng Work.
    4. Do your best and plan ahead, hindi biro ang pagod na ilalaan sa paghahanap ng work dito kaya dapat walang masayang na oras.
    5. Mas ok kung ikaw ang tatawag sa mga recruiter kapag may nakita kang Job post para mapansin ka agad. do googling on their company contact number if not posted sa Job advertisement.
    6. Wag magtiwala sa mga agency na hihingan ka ng certain amount keso iidorse ka daw sa client nila at hahanapan ka ng work. Naging target din ako nito dahil minsan ako naging desparate magkawork dito.
    7. Always inform them your visa status and SVP expire date. Ask the recruiter if that accept foreign talents. Kung may Quota sila.
    8. Linkedin, helpful yan sa Job seeker kasi you can contact directly sa recruiter. Update your header profile, stating that your looking for a Job with your SG mobile number, and add more recruiter connections to get noticed.
    9. Use PDF editor such as Nitro editor kaysa mag print ka ng PDF then sign then scan, magastos ang pa print dito. Masakit ang $1 per page print.
    10. Last but not the least, always pray and seek God first. It helped me a lot.

    Disclaimer: Above mentioned are my own experience and some scenario may not be applicable to others.

    @Admin if you find this helpful. please paki pin nalang po para makita agad ng ating mga fellow kababayan na naghahanap ng work at makatulong. Thank you

  • Success Story of a first timer - The Calculated Risk

    Hi mga Ka-PinoySG.

    Gusto ko lang sana i-share ang naging experience ko sa paghahanap ng work dito sa Singapore. Nag decide ako maghanap dito ng work year 2017 palang kaya nagkaroon ako ng masusing pagplaplano. December 2017 ako nag file ng resignation sa X company ko dahil 2 months ang rendering na nasa Job contract ko.January 2018 dineclare ko na nawala ang Company ID ko dahil alam ko kelangan ko yun baka hanapin ng Immigration, nang may new company ID na ako yun bago ID ang nisurrender ko sa company. 2 weeks before departure nag apply na ako sa mga Job portals sa SG. Wala ako kamag anak dito sa SG kaya wala din ako nalapitan para i-refer ang profile ko. February nung pumunta kami ng asawa ko dito sa SG as a tourist. Inisip ko na sabay kami pumunta dito sa SG para hindi ako paghinlaan ng IO sa pinas. Nasa baggage counter na kami. Check-in ko yung mga documents sa luggage ko. Yung Hand carry ko nag excess kasi naging 9 kilos sya. Tinanong ako kung may laman laptop, sabi ko Oo then pinalusot na nya kahit excess sa 7 kgs. Nakapila na kami sa Immigration, pinauna ko si misis sa pilahan, next ako. Yung kaba hindi talaga pala naaalis - naramdaman ko talaga yun habang nakapila sa immigration. Wala tinanong sa akin ang IO dahil si misis lang ang tinanong nya kung sino kasama nya papunta sa SG then tinawag ako ng IO at kinuha ang passport ko. Sabay ko inabot ang passport ko at mga supporting documents like company ID, hotel accomodation, return ticket. Nakita ko tinignan lang ng IO kung magkatulad mga tatak sa passport namin. Buti sabay kami nag ttravel, hobby din kasi namin magtravel. Lusot na kami sa IO Philippines. Sa IO SG naman, kinabahan na naman ako buti wala din naging problem, smooth lang. Bili agad ako ng SG Sim (Singtel) dahil pwede sya sa SG-Malaysia, In case mag exit ako magagamit ko parin yung Sim. Pagpunta namin sa accomodation, nag update agad ako ng resume, pinalitan ko agad yung contact number at address, tapos uploaded agad sa mga Job Portals. For the first 5 days, every morning nag ssend ako ng application bago kami gumala ni Misis. Tapos na ang 5days tour at hinatid ko na si Misis sa airport pabalik ng Manila. Todo effort ako sa pag apply, nakakapagod talaga. every 4 AM up to 8 AM ako nag a-apply online, ganan ginawa ko schedule para pag pasok ng mga recruiter on top ang application ko sa portal nila. Everyday ko rin ina-update ang resume profile ko, nagbabaka sakali na kung mag filter mga recruiter kung sino ang last update profile ay mapansin ang resume ko. Yung resume ko 1 page lang kahit apat na ang napagtrabahuhan ko na company. Nag praktis din ako sa mga Q & A over the recorded voice then ni pplay ko para mapakinggan ko ang boses ko kung kinakabahan ako para ma improve ko rin. Natapos ang first week, Wala tumatawag sakin during my first week dito sa SG. Kinabahan na ako nun, nakaramdam ng lungkot at sobrang worried. Sabado na, nag isip ako ano kaya maganda gawin kasi nagtataka ako ba't wala natawag sakin,gusto ko na rin agad mag monday para may recruiter na pwede kumontak sakin, Naghanap ako ng malapit na simbahan para dun ako mag Mass ng linggo. Dumating ang Sunday - Pumunta ako sa Church of Our Lady Queen of Peace.
