She also said that foreigners who are thinking of moving here to work need not also have a degree – that the employers here look more at work experiences of such foreigners.

She said that some companies will say “Singaporeans only”, but others will sponsor such foreigners for an employment pass.

As previously reported, convicted child sex offender and Contact Singapore’s poster boy, 39-year-old Joshua Robinson, did not even have an undergraduate degree when he came to work in Singapore. According to Robinson’s profile in Blogger, he only had an associate’s degree in Computer Animation from the Illinois Institute of Art.

Manpower Minister Lim Swee Say recently announced that he had taken 50 companies to task for failing to give Singaporeans fair consideration when hiring. Also, more than 500 Employment Pass applications from these employers have been rejected by his Ministry or had been withdrawn by the respective companies.

It was also revealed that at the end of February this year, there were 250 companies on his watchlist, up from 100 at the start. These are companies that were singled out or reported for discriminating against the hiring of Singaporeans in favor of foreigners.
