Singapore job aggregator : indeed


It is once again the job hunting season in Singapore. Festive season is up, 13th month and performance bonuses are paid and people are ready to look for greener pastures. Singapore companies offer no meaningful incentive to keep on working in the same place for years and the only way to truly have an increment ones salary is to find another job. So everyone here looks like transient workers locals or foreigners. So people will also collect their bonuses and jump to other positions and the companies will fill in the empty spaces (I am amused when people are surprised with persistent and creeping productivity in Singapore where there is a mass job hopping season!).

Anyway, since this is the best time to look for a job in Singapore, you also need to know the best places to look for one. In my opinion, job aggregators are the best places to look for a job since they collect job advertisements from different sources, including individual company recruitment sites, to a single place for you.   Here are two Singapore job aggregators;


  • It is very surprising to see that Indeed.com, a metasearch engine for job listings launched in November 2004, is still relatively unknown in Singapore. Indeed is currently available in 53 countries including Singapore and in 2010, it has surpassed Monster.com to become the most visited job site in the United States. Indeeds Singapore job search engine is here at www.indeed.com.sg. Simply enter what you want and in which town or estate and indeed will aggregate many jobs from different sites to you. It also has a  pay-per-click job advertising network which will be displayed as sponsored jobs in the search results.

  • careerjet.sg, is another aggregator. The job offerings themselves are not hosted by Careerjet and users are always redirected to the original job listing. Essentially, Careerjet acts as traffic driver to those sites. Careerjet's job search engine network encompasses over 50 countries, featuring separate interfaces that are translated into 20 languages.
