Hi Wan

I found your blog when searching for Industry in Bintulu because I want to come and work and live in Bintulu for 3 months sometime soon. You seem to have a love and knowledge about Bintulu, and needed some idea from you perhaps of who to contact, how can i get work there for this temporary period in the engineering industry. I can do project team work, work together as an administrator assistant, or sales using my technical engineering experience. Any help to offer? Shirley

Thank you for your interest to work in Bintulu. I am afraid that I cannot give you much help since I am currently working outside of Bintulu. However, you can search for multinational companies such as oil and Gas industries(Shell or Petronas), LNG industries, etc.
