Monday, August 2, 2010 wishes Singapore a Happy 45th Birthday.

For Singapore, there's no better way to celebrate Singapore's 45th year anniversary than to spend it sharing advancement opportunities for working professionals and job seekers. This is a birthday party where everyone gets career favors!

What good news do we have for job seekers, fresh grads or otherwise? The job market's doing great. We spent most of our time last week delivering reports about this, remember? Missed them? We don't mind repeating them here -- Singapore's celebrating 45th and it's for a good cause after all. The latest Hays Quarterly Report, which you can read back @, reveals that information technology jobs, banking jobs, human resources jobs, manufacturing jobs, jobs in hospitality, and legal jobs have the highest demands right now. Other sectors are pretty much in an accommodating mode too, we've read from several of our most trusted news resources, but we've concluded that these industries offer the best job hunting results.

There's a big demand for candidates with strong IT backgrounds due to an increase in number of large scale projects in the sectors of banking, telecommunications and energy. More and more companies are looking to re-hire this quarter, on the other hand -- the reason for HR industry's sudden boom. Vivian Ng, division director of Robert Half has shared with Today that she's seeing a 20 percent increase in banks' hiring moves especially in sales -- she's named HSBC, Citibank, DBS, and Standard Chartered for this. Increased activity is being experienced across the industries of manufacturing, legal and compliance and hospitality right now too, we've read from some periodicals.

Our jobs database is a testament to this "renewed" optimism. Apply for jobs from our 20,000 job listings here: Looking to change jobs? Go ahead and use what we have to find your answers too.
