    You need a work permit/employment pass but not from Singapore embassy. First you need to get a job and the employer will apply on your behalf to ICA/MOM (ministry of man power) to apply for a work permit or employment pass. The diff is work permit is for blue collar workers and EP requires >2500 income.

    With the EP or WP you can work in Singapore.
