There will be many applications being submitted on the first day of submission. So, please prepare yourself to be able to submit on the first day to maximize your chance of securing the position in a desired location.
In general, there are a large number of people applying for positions in the metropolitan cities. So, if you have a preferred location, you should apply as soon as possible to avoid the disappointment. Please note that the deadlines practically have no meanings since the employment is granted on a FCFS basis.
It can take up to 3 to 4 months to prepare all the required documents, therefore, we strongly advise that you compile the required documents and begin the application process as early as possible (at least 3-4 months prior to the application submission). Again, each stage of the application is processed on a FCFS basis.
From March to September and from September to March after the major intakes, only a limited number of positions are available. Please inquire with us for possible openings.
