    Dear IndianQueen ,
    waiting for 2 months is no time . So dont give up yr hope. Freezing of recruitment ...i dont believe as i have been seeing lot of calls from banks for diff platforms , for Dev and support - honestly speaking am tracking it for more than 3 months . It all depends on which area u r looking for . Consultants here need Cv's for their JD ,thats it . Not much referals issues . All the Best .

    Kavya,

    You should look into jobstreet dot com's salary search/ salary survey page. Should give you an idea about avg and exceptional salaries.

    Hi Akila,

    I have been looking for an IT job on DP since 5 months too. And my search finally ended successfully. The IT job market is strictly ok. I think there is a general apathy towards DP holders. EP holders/ Singaporeans/ PRs are preferred by recruiters. Some companies are do welcome foreigners. A DP holder can expect a call or two in a few months after applying for jobs frantically and should try to turn that opportunity into his/her favour.

    Singaporean citizen/PR staus requirement stands as hindrance

    We (Me, my husband and 2 kids)would like to settle in Singapore. I am Pre-primary Teacher and my hubby is MBA(HR) with a impressive international career background have very good personal credibility. Presently he is in Dubai. He had tried job through job sites and also contacted some recruitment agencies in Singapore, but of no avail. Employers in Singapore are insisting on Singaporean citizen/ PR. In this circumstance, we are totally disappointed. What is the next best option to find work and settle in Singapore. Will it work out if my husband visits Singapore on visit visa or similar and find a job?? What is the status of job market there? And please tell me how much it will cost us (cost of living in humble but decent perspective) for 3-6 months. And also please tell me which place is best to stay and BEST place to find job, i mean commercial area (like mumbai/chennai)?Please, I would be very grateful.
