I was in Singapore last year looking for work. Many opportunities there. I had no problems getting interviews but never received an offer. Being a CFA candidate will help get your foot in the door for interviews but experience is more important. It is a very competitive market and the goverment is pushing employers to hire Singaporeans over foreigners. The government recently discontinued the the EPEC program which allows job seekers to stay in the country for up to year while seeking employment so now you will have to leave when your visa expires. Many employers and recruiters I spoke with indicated that it was harder for them to get Employment Passes approved.
Singapore is a very expensive country. Most foreigners I met working over there received there jobs from abroad so their company picked up most of the expenses. You will also notice that most only stay the duration of their contract and you don’t meet many people who relocate their permanently. It’s a sterile country with many rules and regs. Keep that in mind before deciding to head there permanently. On the plus side, its a great travel hub and you can get anywhere in SE Asia within 4 hours.
