  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Bank Account - SG or PH

    @reyven, I'll also consider this. Kasi kahit sa Pinas mas mataas ang tubo sa time deposit e.

  • Looking for a job

    Sorry pasingit po. Natry nyo na ba maghanap sa newspaper? Or sa gumtree?
    Kami kasi ng gf ko ganun ginawa namin. Kahit for PR and Singaporean lang try nyo tawagan directly. Kasi 5 months ago ganun ginawa namin. Yung gf ko dun nahanap work nya direct hire. Sa sobrang dami naming tinawagan di ko tuloy alam if sa gumtree or sa dyaryo na nakuha. Mabilis kasi yung response pag doon. Customer care officer sa isang educational institution nakuhang work ni gf. Good luck po.

    And please lang wag po kayo maglabas ng pera sa agency. Or maglabas lang kayo ng pera if approved na pass nyo at may IPA na kayo. Pero unless wala pa nun, wag na wag kayo magbabayad.
