Default how to make companies notice your application

Looks like the only way to get companies to respond to your application on jobsbank is to contact the WDA/MOM...

this is ridiculous, since posting earlier, I have applications which are still on the "new" status (meaning the company hasn't even looked at it) for more than a month

I understand not getting the position, but not even looking at the application for consideration? makes me think these companies are just posting on the jobsbank to tick a box and not even caring about the applications on it

Guys, please make your voice heard. call WDA/MOM , write to the newspaper and post on forums. Also talk to your MP's. Not to air out your grievances on not getting a job, but rather to highlight structural problems in the jobsbank and process and how it is being taken(and us locals along with it) for a ride.

This needs to be done right so that the FCF maintains its original intention

Default interview in a company

I attended an interview not too long ago. The interviewer told me that they had already identified someone in the Philippines and wanted to reject 10 Singapore candidates before applying for EP for this person. I walked out of the interview.
It is time now that Singaporeans stand up united and hit out at such companies.
Before posting any job opening, the companies should announce if they have already identified someone. This will save a lot of time and effort for everyone.

bro, you have a obligation to all your countrymen to call MOM/WDA and report this company and the position(try to be as detailed as possible). They will know you are telling the truth when they see the EP application for the philippino from this company. we need to stand up and make sure the the FCF does what it is intended to (Give Singaporeans a fighting chance)

So long as these jobs exist and flow to Singaporeans, I am all for it.

Default Making companies hire Singaporeans

It may be possible they changed their mind.

Most of the jobs I applied for are also still showing as "New".

I seem to recall reading an article somewhere that some companies are just posting jobs there for show only.
I suggest you approach WDA/MOM/your MP with all details. They will get the matter investigated.

Many companies are advertising on jobsbank with no intent of hiring Singaporeans. Others go through the motions of interviewing Singaporeans and reject their automatically. Some of these are under the MOM scanner.

Guys out there who encounter companies that are misusing the jobs bank, please do notify WDA/MOM. If nobody alerts MOM about these errant companies, they will not know and think that all is fine. I got my job through jobs bank, but I can tell you that before I got it, I went through a lot of applying and interviewing. I was contacted by a few errant companies that simply wanted to fulfill their quota of interviews. Please, please complain to MOM. Every single company that tried to pull stunt or did not interview me seriously, I dropped MOM an email. All these coy must kena fine first before learning their lesson. If everyone just keep quiet, MOM will not know.

How do I nofify WDA? Don't they know already how many folks apply for a job, how many get interviewed, etc? All this information needs to be presented while applying for EP.

yes, on what basis did you make the assumption that they pulled a stunt or did not interview you seriously? it would be good to share this information so that others also present credible evidence of errant companies rather than being upset that they did not get a job(which perhaps the employer thought they were not a good match for) and rant at WDA/MOM regarding this company
