Foreign agency engaged to help locals find jobs?

The irony of the Singapore workforce! We have spent so much time complaining that a lot of jobs are now going to foreign talents, while the locals cannot find jobs and are marginalised in our own countries.

Guess what? The Workforce Singapore (WSG) have appointed Maximus Asia, a subsidiary of American company Maximus, to provide free help to local PMETs who are looking for a job. Yes, a foreign expert have been enlisted by the authorities to help locals find jobs in Singapore.

The foreign company started operations on Monday, 12 June. In fact, it is the second foreign job placement agency appointed by the government to help locals find jobs. the first company, Ingeus, started operations in April. It was not disclosed how much the two foreign companies are paid by the government to help Singaporeans find jobs.

    With the clown prince running the country as such, it’s no wonder China has given him a snub and leaders around the world are starting to see his incompetency.

    The clown prince likes to use his pa’s name and repeat his pa’s words. Good for him that people are now comparing him with his pa and says he’s way way off his pa’s intelligence and capabilities. If his G can’t even handle locals’ problems and has to hire FTs to do the job, it just show he’s not even able to run his own country properly. How then is he able to take care of world affairs?

    There’s no Trump in sg to promise “Make sg great again”. But kicking the useless Leeder out of his seat will surely return sg to its good old days, the days without the Foreign Thieves stealing sgreans lunches again.

    It’s too late to help Singaporeans because they become stuck when the one assessing their job application is also FT like Malaysian, Pinoy ,Indian etc because these fellas will hire their own so they can continue to dominate the workplace. PAP should have had the foresight to know this was going to happen. Won’t be surprised if these same FTs who may take up citizenship one day decide to form their own political party. One day, our leaching cousins may bite the hand that’s been feeding them.

    There were local recruitment experts engaged previously but their success rate falls below the 60% KPI.

    Now these foreign companies engaged based on commission, ie they only get paid for each successful job placement. If no job for local, they are not paid.They are just like property agents.

    I have no problem with this business model.

    No commission if no successful local job placement ?

    Who would want to start this kind of business ?

    Use your HEAD lah,….somewhere down the line,…the information for vacancy and job openings by participating Companies “collected”,….will
    SURELY be used and PASS to another PARALLEL agency who will be SPECIALISED in recruiting Cheaper, better, faster, Fooreign Talent !!!!

    This is why SINGAPOREANS are such STUPID & DAFT ,…over “trusting the system” ……when in actual fact,…Foreigners ( including any foreign employer, agency and even workers ) are GAMING the system to “steal those dafts, overly kwai ( too obedient and straight ), overly sar ( too stupid to know how to think how others are cheating on you ).

    Bo pian,….kenna made “stupid & Daft” by oldfart’s “threat” and “addictions” !!!

    @knn,…

    What are you talking ?

    “if no jobs for local”…they are not paid ?…so what ?

    Don;t they still eventually get paid ( by the foreigner applicant ) when the same job goes to a foreigner ?

    LPPL ?

    Ghee ?…what are you talking ??

    You have “no problem” with this business model ????

    Gheez….can you not see its simply “just a play of words and the system”

    And,….you so simply “have no pblms with it” ????

    No wonder oldfart dared labelled us as “Daft” ( Gong Kia )

  • fight fire with fire:

    if it is really and strictly commission based, then this is a good things.

    throw in a performance bonus, for every year that the placement stayed on the job, extra cash payout.
