Furniture retail mart Courts will be launching a mass recruitment in exercise in Johor Bahru on 18 January 2010 for Malaysians to fill various positions in Singapore according to a tip-off we receive from a reader.
Singaporeans need not apply even if you travel across the Causeway for the interview as they are open to Malaysians only.
One may think that these jobs are those shunned by Singaporeans and Courts has no choice but to turn to Malaysians to fill the vacancies, as is often used by leaders of the ruling party to defend its pro-foreigner policy and regurgitated faithfully by the state media. ...
Is Singapore Courts recruiting Malaysian workers to work in factories on late shifts?
Let us take a look at the positions offered by Courts to the Malaysians:
The vacancies needed to be filled by Courts are: product specialists, cashiers, operation executives, assistant accountants, credit officer and customer account assistants.
Now these are not highly specialized positions which can only be filled by professionals and talents not available in Singapore or menial jobs shunned by Singaporeans.
Any Singaporean equipped with a ITE or “O” level certificate will be more than qualified to take up these jobs. Why is Courts recruiting Malaysians instead of Singaporeans?
Recommended by at82: "For unemployed or retrenched Singaporeans who are still looking for a job, they will stand a better chance giving up their Singapore citizenship to become a Malaysian and apply for a job based in Singapore in Malaysia instead"

Jason, 32, an IT consultant, recently found himself in trouble with his boss after posting some rather disparaging remarks of his company on a colleague's blog. In the three sentence comment, Jason called his boss a "conniving SOB who stings on giving bonuses to the staff just to make company profits look good to investors." For that, Jason was asked to leave the company, and the boss is threatening legal action.
Some of us may say Jason's boss doesn't have a case, and that he's kicking up a fuss over nothing. Not entirely true.
Casey Lim, an MD of a shipping firm: " Many employees post things on the Internet thinking that they're just harmless comments, and that there should be freedom of speech anyway. What they don't realise, is that if such comments are damaging to the company's reputation, or worse, reveal company secrets, the bosses can and will take legal action."
