How easy is it to get a job in Singapore?

We have two open positions in our Singapore office – a Corporate Administrator and Administrative Assistant. Within 2 days, we received about 300 applications for those positions. Most applications came from Singaporeans or Singapore PR holders. It looks like people are hungry for employment.

Another interesting trend is that candidates are asking for less money compared to a year ago. For example, a candidate for a corporate/trust administrator position was requesting SGD $4,000 pm. It has dropped to SGD $3,000 pm now.
