This is also one aspect that Singaporeans are lacking in. So if you were the employer, who you will choose ?
Are you referring to all Singaporean are like what you said?
I work in a mnc, it seem like the other way round
Anyway, those who work in mnc will know what I mean

I agree with this poster as I am working in a well known MNC.

We recruit from a diverse pool in terms of nationalities, race and gender.

I have colleagues from China, Myanmar,Pakistan, US and UK, just to name a few.

My team has a mixture of locals and Malaysians. We have a strong performance culture and will reward the best people and will never pay people less because of cost issue. We will ask people who consistently underperform to leave.

We also have a strong selection process for us to select people who are capable.

Unfortunately I have encountered foreigners from Vietnam and India who tried to get into a role while using means to cheat or give answers from online searches. In actual fact they have no ideal of what the actual role entails.

Really ? Then why can't your 'well-known' MNC give the jobless local grad the first priority ? Or you are just bull-shitting here ?

We do have roles for graduates. You need to be very clear here. You are saying we should give jobless graduates jobs. This sounds like an entitlement whereby many graduates feel entitled.

Who do you blame if you cant find jobs? No one owns you a living.

The job market is competitive.

My journey as a job seeker comes with many rejections but I am fortunate to land up with this MNC ultimately. You need resilience and tenacity if you are facing unemployment, not crying out for companies to hire you.

With your response and attitude, you are not deserving to end up in a good company.

Employment pass pay 650 levy per year. For sinkies they had to pay 17% employer's CPF on top of their salary. Its a no brainer for employers to employ foreigners.
