Hi all,

Hope all is well.

I need your help to find the right path to succeed in my job search.

I am having over 8 years exp in Testing in India and now willing to work in Singapore.

I registered my profile in SG job portals like Monster, JobsDB, JobStreet etc... and applying for many jobs from last 6 months.

But i didn't get a single reply/call to any of the jobs which i applied.

So i request please suggest me the right consultants/referees for the job search

Looking forward your help.

Thanks in advance,
Uday

If you did not have a reply after 6 months, ask for peer review on your resume.

Doubtlessly, an impressive stand-out- above -the- rest- resume will receive responses!

I doubt you can find a commercial correction service for free- at least not in Singapore. Amending resumes is hard work, with many research and physical interaction understanding the various tasks with the applicant - industries differ in scope and process.

Good luck

well, when it comes to good recruiters, like Hayes, Adecco, Mullan Schwartz, Global Sage, Robert Walters, Randstaad .. (for example .. ) if you trigger the right response - i.e. you have the skills they are looking for, for he specific client .. they will advice you to do a profile to fit the client's needs ..

and often send you a questionnaire to fill in, which will conform to what the client wants

so the key is, you must have the stuff the recruiter wants, to be responded to ..

the competition is very tight in jobfinding in Singapore.
What you should try to do,
1.Amend your resume.
2.Amend the picture,look modern/professional. If there is no picture,place a picture
3.Keep Sending(I used to send like 20-30 resumes/a day)

Always have a positive mindset.
Good lucks!

Actually jobsmart gives a free first appraisal of your resume- hoping you will use their services later(?).

e.g., as promoted for a free review of your CV, send your resume to [email protected] -it's worth a try. There is no reviews of their expertises.

or google Jobsmart Singapore
Home - Jobsmart

good luck
