New members of the Singapore forum, introduce yourself here – 2016

Hi all,

Newbie on the Singapore forum? Don't know how to start?

This thread is for you ;)

We invite you to introduce yourself on this topic, to share with us your expat story if you are already living in the country, or to tell us more on your expat projects in Singapore if you are planning to move there.

It will enable us to help you better but above all to wish you a warm welcome.

Welcome on board!

PD : The thread New members of the Singapore forum, introduce yourself here – 4th quarter of 2015 continues below!

This is my 8th years in Singapore and the time sadly has to come for me to embark a new role at the same company to the land of the rising sun, where my wife comes from.
I'll be heading an HR department in Tokyo and would need some advise from any one here who has been living in Tokyo before.
I have a 2 years old son, and is still looking for a decent place to live in Tokyo
Apparently the apartment in Tokyo is not as spectacular as in Singapore, mainly old or really old, the rent for a little nicer one has a sky high rental fee.
Open to any advise from anyone :)

Fresh off the boat from Texas, been here a bit over a month, moved specifically for a job opportunity and the opportunity to live abroad of course.  Would love the opportunity to meet new people, while exploring the city and or country!  :heart:

Hi there! I'm Victoria, I'm 22 and I arrived in Singapore a month ago for an internship. After a 3-month experience in Manila, I really wanted to come back in Asia, so here I am, I'll stay until July. I'd love to meet new people to hang out in Singapore and to travel in the countries around. :)

Hello everyone I'm a globetrotter and in Singapore now and am helping to run a tuition agency here. We are looking for more language tutors for our website especially in Japanese, Korean etc. Please let me know if anyone is interested :)

hi beautiful people;

I am so interested to live and work in Singapore.
I've got master degree in telecommunications systems, and i am currently working at the Space Agency as a Satellite Operator since almost 2 years.
I would be thankful for anyone who can recommend anything helpful.
Thanks everyone.

If you want to find a jon in Singapore, you should read and follow the advice given in the many job search discussions on this forum. The main thing is to first find out (from MoM) whether your degree is recognised by Singapore - if not then forget it! - and then figure out which skills you have that are rare and in demand in Singapore, because in all others the available locals must be hired first, so you have no chance.
Good luck - you'll need that too!

I'm living in my country and I'm trying to find a job in Singapore, I'm willing to move ASAP, any advices guys? My mother language is Spanish, and my
Major is in international business and finance!


Hello dear
Welcome to u in Singapore

Christianvp: to find a job in Singapore, you need to apply for suitable openings at employers in your industry. There's already a lot of information on this forum about how to do that, which you may read. It needs lots of thorough research, frustration tolerance, patience - don't expect it to be fast! - and of course luck.
Spanish is no asset in Singapore. There is a big business and finance industry, but all depends on your specific skills and work experience (don't try if you're just a fresh graduate!).

Hi dear,
Sure u r welcome to Singapore . I wish U a happy day and happy moments to come ur life again in Singapore

I'm Germain. I reached Singapore on July 31st. I have been hired by an International organisation and I will be here for 3 years.
The first week was really dificult, finding accomodation. But it's cool now, I found an appart just 10 minutes to my office.
I hope I can meet new people here and enjoy my 3 years here.
