New city, new cuisine, new experiences.
Arriving in a foreign country can be exciting at first… But at some point, most of us have to find work, and when you’re in a different country this can be a little tricky.
Not understanding Visa restrictions, employment passes, dependant passes, or how to organize your job search – can be one big headache.
So that’s why The Career Resource Center for Expatriates (CRCE) is a goldmine.
Part of the American Association of Singapore, CRCE has been assisting expats of all nationalities find employment and enhance their professional and personal skills for 15 years.
They run a series of fantastic workshops which focus on assisting job seekers to conduct a strategic and well-organized job search as well as information on work visas (ugh, paperwork), working in Singapore, and networking tips.
If you’ve been out of the workforce for a while, they’ll also teach you how to prepare an effective resume and hone your interviewing skills. Plus, all members get to access an online job board and apply directly for the posts that they want. Simple, convenient and highly effective.
CRCE is tried and tested – they’ve helped thousands of expats find jobs and have concretely established a network which offers members support and understanding, resulting in strong, lasting relationships.
They’re also committed to finding you something you’re truly passionate about, so their diverse series of workshops will give you everything from up-to-date tips on personal branding to navigating LinkedIn.
And if you’re not looking for a job, it’s also a great time to just further yourself and maximize your time in Singapore.
