    Hi,

    If you live in Singapore or are planning to move and made already some research you can help in sharing your experience.

    What is the best way to find a job in Singapore? Is it better to go there on holiday and search? Do you register on some website? Do you use recruitment agencies in Singapore?

    You can help and share information on:

    :arrow: Recruitment agencies? Have you got their contact?

    Thanks in advance for sharing your experience with the community :)

    As an expat in Singapore, the BEST way to get a job in here is through networking. There are job sites (listed in the other replies here) but they're useless. The jobs posted are just posted because they have to and in reality the job has already been given to someone.

    You can go to a companies website directly and see if there are any roles you're looking for, but as a lot of them use the robot to filter out potential candidates, chances are your CV will not make it through, no matter how amazing you are. You're an expat. You're not Singaporean or PR (permanent resident) and you'll get overlooked most of the time.

    Headhunters here, are probably getting better, but 3 years ago I could barely get them to call me back. I didn't fit in-the-box 100% and for that they wouldn't consider me.

    So let me say this again, unless you're not being relocated here, networking is the way to go.
