LOCAL PMET JOBS ADVERTISED ON FOREIGN JOB PORTALS, WHERE IS OUR PRIORITY?

A friend who has been unemployed for more than a year, after being laid off by a multi-national company (MNC) in Singapore despite sending more than a hundred applications alerted me to a job posting for IT applications analyst that was also posted on an Indonesian jobstreet website. Such PMET jobs should only be posted in the National Jobs Bank to give Singaporeans priority. So far, there are already 53 applicants (21 foreign and 32 local).

The consistent rhetoric in the media that PMET IT jobs are the fastest growing jobs sector and that there is a severe shortage of Singaporeans to fill the jobs available do not seem to connect with the reality on the ground, that as I understand it – many unemployed Singaporean PMET IT professionals are facing. For those who have more information and experience on this issue – please share. What are your thoughts on the above?

ITE GRADUATE LOOKED DOWN BY INTERVIEWER BECAUSE OF HIS "POOR" QUALIFICATIONS

I'm going to share my thoughts regarding an interview with a certain company for the position of Test Technician and after the interview, I left feeling horrible, depressed and really upset. The interviewer was rude and unprofessional. I found this job opening through jobstreet. I have lodged a report with TAFEP and am currently awaiting a personal apology from the interviewer itself for being rude to me. I hope other people don't go through what I have been through.
