JobsCentral.com and Monster.com are two websites for work opportunities in Singapore recommended by the expat guide Just Landed. Strait Times, the largest local newspaper, lists jobs in its classified section. The Singapore Professional Center organizes a large career fair each year.
With a high wage level, low taxes and English as the official language, Singapore is an attractive job market for foreigners, who make up one-third of the population. Westerners often look for work in the tourism, trade and high-tech industries. Many companies carry out work interviews over the phone or via video conference with foreign applicants. With a job secured, a foreigner must then apply for a work permit with the Ministry of Manpower.
