Job Search Services - Search Techniques

VIJAY – Age 32, Banker.

“I am searching for a job in Singapore and have been using online job boards & recruitment agencies. However, progress is too slow and I am not getting enough interviews and job offers.”


When looking for jobs in Singapore most people make several mistakes, which leads to a slow and ineffective job search. People tend to:

  • Focus their job search effort on newspaper classifieds, job boards and recruiters, even though they have high competition and a low success rate.
  • Use classifieds, job boards and recruiters in a very unproductive way, which makes them waste a lot of time and effort.
  • Have insufficient information about the job market and practices in Singapore.

As a result, they end up spending time on activities which do not produce results and only see a trickle of good job leads/opportunities come their way.

We can help you avoid these mistakes, get more job leads and find the right jobs you want easily. Our techniques for finding jobs in Singapore will enable you to:

  • Quickly identify virtually all relevant job advertisements in Singapore with just 2 clicks.
  • Learn about the time when you should submit your application that doubles your chances of being called for an interview.
  • Make your resume/profile appear towards the top, when recruiter and employers search for candidates on job sites.
  • Learn which recruiters to contact and which to avoid for jobs in Singapore.
  • Properly interact, approach and follow-up with recruiters, to increase the chances of them responding to your communications.
  • Know how much other people are earning in the jobs you want.
  • Bypass recruiters/job sites and directly access hiring managers in your companies of interest, using networking, social media and other such methods.
