In the news article “Filipino professionals head to Singapore as tourists to seek jobs,” Straits Times journalist Amelia Tan reported on a growing trend of Filipino professionals entering Singapore as tourists to find jobs.
The route, once used mostly by aspirants of domestic service jobs, is gaining traction among professionals.
Commenting on the trend, Rikvin’s Chief Operating Officer, Mr. Satish Bakhda, said that aspirants who try this route may go home empty-handed as MOM continues to tighten the rules for hiring workers from overseas.
He added that this possibility is unlikely to deter them, as the prospect of a higher income is worth the gamble.
Thank you very much, Amelia, for letting us be a part of your story again!
