Default software engineer job as a fresh graduate in Singapore?

Hi all,

I am graduating with my BSc in computer science at the end of this year. I'm willing to migrate to Singapore as my first job. What are the companies recruiting international fresh graduates? Are there people who have taken this path before? Is this possible?

I searched the Jobsdb.com (for java SE) but almost all of them require 2+ years of experience. And some say fresh graduates from local universities are also welcome but again they don't mention about foreign people. And others say: Only Singaporeans need apply.


Any information would be greatly appreciated.

Unhappy that not fair

Is it not in Singapore's nature to embrace diversity and is it not it's core attribute to encourage and identify merit wherever it lies?

Software programmers, hardest to survive in SG:

No experience? Contract 6mths, 75% kick out rate

Have experience? Contract 12mths, Code until you die.

A lot of experience? Software architecture design? Consultant! Hurray if you survive this long.

A lot of experience, but still super noob at java? Pre-sales!


Not happy? The boss can just post a "task" at freelancers and pay half the price.

want to give some encouragement to my fellow junior.

Among all the engineering discipline, i think i made the right choice doing embedded software, aka firmware. Why?

my division is closing down by this year end, we are told to look for job, and bosses actually help a lot as part of the outplacement support. my division is a R&D division there are ME and EE engineers total about 40++ engineers, while among 13 of the firmware engineers, 9 of us already found a job within 1.5 months .. but the other discipline is ..hmmm not so easy..

hope you put faith in our profession, if computing is not the future engineering, bio?

How much can an firmware engineer earn? What's the starting pay and what's the typical pay at 10-year, 20-year milestones in the career? Thanks for sharing.

Very nice!

I am from the R&D dept, i do fw/sw/hw and yes it is SUPER EASY to find job. No joke, almost every resume you send out for embedded design positions will get you an interview and swiftly a pay offer.

Why?

Because the pay is peanuts. Embedded engineers (less linux / unix gurus) are the lowest paid engineers out there. Project engineer needs lesser skill and they get paid more lolx

I didnt join a hell lot of companies to know this, but i sure get a lot of pay offers(food stamps)...

If you want pay, then best find a job in one of the banks. You may even learn a bit, but most likely you'll do very few software tasks and spend most of your time doing time management.

If you get lucky, you'll become a project manager.

In Singapore, there's very few jobs allowing someone to become a true software professional with good pay. For that, you have to go to western countries.
