Demanded Jobs in Singapore: From what I’ve seen, many foreign job seekers tend to underestimate how good the job market in Singapore is. Instead, they focus on jobs that pay well in places like the US, UK, Europe, and Canada.
This means there is less competition in Singapore, where the average salary is SGD $7650 per month, which is much better than in many other countries.
Because of this, I strongly urge people looking for work to think about the Singaporean job market, which has a lack of skilled workers in many areas.
Here, there isn’t as much competition, and if your skills match up, you have a good chance of getting a permanent job and a work visa or permit in Singapore. This article goes into depth about these parts, so let’s break them down together.

Understanding the Singapore Work VISA / Work Pass 2024
When you get a job offer from Singapore, the next step is to apply for a work visa, which people in Singapore call an “S pass.” There are four main types of this pass, and it’s important to pick the one that fits your job situation the best. In this part, we’ll tell you more about each of these groups.
Pass for Skilled or Unskilled Workers (S Pass & Others)
• Employment Pass
• Short-term S Pass
• Singapore Training Pass
Pass for Skilled or Unskilled Workers
The S Pass is the best choice if you want to get a semi-skilled or skilled job in Singapore. It has several subgroups, such as work permits for artists, housekeepers, nurses, and migrant workers.
Singapore’s Employment Pass
You’ll need to apply for the Singaporean Employment Pass if you’re being offered a job as an executive or boss, or if you’re starting a business or going into business for yourself in Singapore. This pass has more types, such as the Overseas Expertise Pass, the EntrePass, and the Personalised Employment Pass.
Short-term S Pass
Let’s say you only have a seasonal or temporary job in Singapore. Then you might want to think about the Short-term S Pass. With this “miscellaneous work pass,” you can stay in Singapore for up to six months to give speeches, lead classes, do research, or attend conferences.
Singapore Training Pass
Lastly, Singapore offers a different kind of visa for people who want to take part in training, college programs, trainee positions, trial jobs, or even work during the holidays. With this Training Pass, you can do any of the above-mentioned things in the country for up to six months.
