Sometimes staffing makes you smile

Most of what you read about staffing in Singapore centers around frustration - the difficulty in finding staff, the trouble with hiring good staff, and the limitations imposed by the foreigner quota.

Once in awhile you get a note that makes you feel warm.

"Hi Sir, you make me cry now, you know..anyhow the result is...but really I wanna say that THANKS SIR SO MUCH.

Hoping good news come to me and I'll work for Sir in the very next day!
Good night sir"


It's an applicant from Vietnam who has recently finished studying and has been on a short trainee stint at a restaurant here in Singapore.

It's refreshing to see the enthusiasm in her message.  I hope her permit gets approved!
