We advertised on the Jobs Bank and recruited foreign students prior to their graduation. Have we fulfilled the advertising requirements when we apply EP for these students when they graduate two years later?

Employers who recruit undergraduates at local and overseas universities prior to their graduation will be permitted to use job advertisements posted on the Jobs Bank not longer than two years before the date of EP application.

However, you must do all of the following:

  • State clearly in the job advertisement on the Jobs Bank that you are searching for suitable candidates to fill future positions. The salary range declared should be for these future positions.
  • Submit the EP application for the new graduate within six months from the date of completion of degree.
  • Take part in recruitment exercises at one of the local autonomous universities in the same year the job advertisement is posted, by either participating in campus career fairs or posting on the university’s job portal.
