Searching for a greener pasture abroad is not so uncommon. Especially now in a Covid-stricken world, more and more people are trying to make ends meet. Whether you are still searching from your home country or are already here in Singapore looking for a new gig, here are some websites where you might just find that dream job of yours.
LinkedIn is the top social network for professionals. If you haven’t yet, go and create your free account today.

3. Monster Singapore
For more than 20 years, Monster has been providing career opportunities globally. If you are looking for an entry-level job, then this site is a good place to start. Upon sign up, you will already be asked for important details like your key skills, total years of experience and preferred industry, just to name a few.
Indeed, similar to Monster, is a global website that is good for entry-level jobs. This is where I found my first job in Singapore, so I can personally vouch that jobs posted here are legit. Apparently, it is the cheapest for employers to post job ads on Indeed, so most likely you can find more openings on this site.
When creating an account, tick the “Job seeker” option, and you may sign up using your e-mail address or through your Google, Apple or Facebook accounts.
According to Forbes, JobStreet is now one of Asia’s leading employment marketplaces. Founded in Malaysia, they also have a strong local presence in Singapore, Philippines, Indonesia and Vietnam. You can sign up for a free JobStreet account using your e-mail address or through your Facebook account.
A few more job hunting tips
It won’t hurt to create an account on all these job portals. The more options you have, the higher the chance of you getting recruited. But of course, still check the quality of the job ads, and whether it’s something you’re really passionate about. Set up e-mail alerts for positions that you’re looking for so you’re notified of the latest openings. Lastly, make sure that you’re using a decent profile photo, your profile is searchable, indicate that you’re currently open to new opportunities, and use all the keywords relevant to your field in your profile.
All the best in landing that dream role!
