Thanks for the quick feedback.
I know the package is not very attractive for a Singaporean.
Our management actually designated this position for a Malaysian.
We already have four Malaysians working for us and because they are excellent workers, my boss prefers Malaysians.
Their Chinese are much better than many Singaporeans I know (including myself).
Since this Sales Manager is going to work with me, he gave in to my request.
I know many other bosses also prefer Malaysians to fill their Expat vacancies because the Malaysians typically will be very happy if they get anything between 15k-20k rmb for a job like this one.
Even home trips to Malaysia via MAS/Air Asia is also cheaper. SIA is so bloody expensive that I usually take my CNY home trip 2 weeks later.
Recently I got a 1st class honours graduate Malaysian engineer working for me.
He only asks for 12k rmb.
I know expenses and cost of living is high in Singapore.
I thought I can make some small contribution to your effort to help those who are displaced by the “FTs” and desperately need a job.
Eventually I think the Chinese expat jobs will also run dry. Don’t know where to go next…
It is tough been a Singaporean now.
You may want to visit this website to see what is happening in China:-
There was an article yesterday about the Chinese police raiding some Chinese cities and confiscated 50,000 copies of (ready for sale) fake Diplomas.
I wonder how many of these have gotten through to Singapore and I can tell you, this is only the tip of the iceberg
Keep in touch.
With best regards,
I have managed to convince my boss to consider a Singaporean for the post and have place the ad for the sales manager in the Singapore JobStreet.com
I also managed to convince him to take a person up to the age of 45 years old (it was 40 before).
I did not get many applications from Singapore .
I thought the wage income of between 18-23K rmb (~$3.8k to $4.8k) + commission + home trips + accommodation should attract some jobless Singaporeans but I guess I was wrong.
Many Malaysians responded and some even still working in Singapore , probably looking for a change to a bigger market.
If anyone you know looking for a job, please direct them to Jobstreet.com or write to me.
We’ll do the selection end of week 1 in Sept.
Must be >30 years old
Possesses a related degree.
2-3 years sales experience minimum.
This will make the W-P application easier.
(Please don’t quote me) unconfirmed sources told me that Malaysian applicants are finding it hard to get W-P in China.
Maybe South China Sea politics at play here
