As per the new CECA agreement inked between the two nations its going to be easy for qualified professionals with degrees from recognized universities to get work permits in Singapore. Kind of automatic if you get a job.

Go there if you must, but hey outlook for IT professionals in India is rosy.

Also I expect the kind of exposure you get working in a mature IT services organization catering to clients all over the globe to be better than working for a local client in Singapore.

Survival of the fittest.

personally I prefer working in a country where I am free to chew gum

May be Sampige can leave Singapore and let Amit Taneja take his place. That is one way of stopping the flood

Sampige..
If you go abroad from India (or are settled there), thats nice..you can call it personal growth/career growth and all those nice things.

If someone else from India tries to come abroad with hopes of a better future, its called flooding.
Not fair



BTW, its this 'flooding' of immigrants that has made the USA what it is today. Leave the anti-flooding measures to the government. No one can stop another person from wanting a better future, whether it is in the USA or the small Singapore!

Peace,
Amit

Theres no problem in getting work permit for it jobs in sg ,.

I really wanted to settle in singpore..?

If you wanted to settle in sg , you should first get PR (Permanent residency) for which you should have a decent salary and you company should apply for it . You cant apply for PR for certain categories of Work permit . The Work permit is categorized based on nature of job ( white collar , blue collar) , education , nationality and pay . i think some of the categories are q1 , q2 , p1 , p2 .

PR is like temp resident for 5 years and then once again u can apply . By the time you apply for the second term of PR , you should recieve invitation from the govt for citizen ship else after the second term you can never come back .


How is singapore java market as compare to Indian market with respect to GROWTH ? ( i know indian market is hot..but is singpore is bad or good or average or what ?)

The job market was sluggish till 2003 . May be its okay now . Sing market is a dependent economy . The whole of SE asia economy is a dependent economy and is in very bad economy crisis especially after 911 . Sing market can never be compared to the bullish indian job market .

No2 . Never expect heavy price unless your skin color is white or yellow .

oRDER OF Preference 1. sg native 2.Americans or britis 3.Australians or Eu 5. chinese 6. indians 7. malays



What salary should i expect ?
for 3 years expect 3500 . for 5 years expect 4500

within a year I am also planning to give scbcd and scwsd exam...as i have already purchased the vouceher on discount..

Its good to have certifications . Atleast its one way to keep abreast of the technology .

Best of luck lah.

Thanks
