If my company recruits undergraduates before graduation, what are our options?

If your company recruits undergraduates at local and overseas universities prior to their graduation, you can use job advertisements posted on up to 2 years before the date of Employment Pass (EP) application.

In this case, your company will be required to:

  • State clearly in the job advertisement that you are searching for suitable candidates to fill future positions.
  • Submit the EP application for the new graduate within 6 months from the date of completion of the 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.
