Would my future employers know if I ever filed for a bankruptcy in the past?

I just got discharged from bankruptcy and I am looking for a job. It's been several months since I started looking for a job and I still haven't found one. I did not disclose any information about being bankrupt in the past but I am afraid that my future employers would be able to find out. Is it possible for them to find out if I filed a bankruptcy in the past?

    No Name

    It;'s better to just tell your future employers about your status if it is asked because they would appreciate the honesty. Once you file for bankruptcy, your name would be listed in Singapore's bankruptcy register and this register can be freely searched by the general public, with the payment of a fee so it would be better if you were honest about it rather than lie about it cause they will find out if they want to. Another thing is that you would still be able to work as normal even after you are declared bankrupt.

    Liquid Pay / Fave Group

    Liquid Pay is a much smaller player in the scene, but I am seeing more and more of that bright blue logo nowadays. Liquid Group is a payments technology company that works with financial institutions and telcos to enhance mobile payment capabilities. Amidst the competitive market, it seems that Liquid Pay has an uphill battle acquiring customers from other mobile wallets that boasts more integration with other uses like GrabPay and DBS PayLah. Yet, given the circumstances, Liquid Pay is surprisingly widely accepted at food and beverage outlets.

    You don’t need to top up credits to send a transfer

    OCBC Pay Anyone / Oversea-Chinese Banking Corporation

    OCBC PayAnyone works in the same way as DBS PayLah. The main difference however, is that while you can still register an account with DBS PayLah without a DBS/POSB account, OCBC Pay Anyone is connected to your bank account so you need an OCBC account to use Pay Anyone. The transactions are then credited to and deducted from OCBC savings or current accounts. You don’t need to top up credits.The good thing is that the recipient you are sending money to via Pay Anyone doesn’t need the app to receive the funds. They will receive an email link whereby they can click and key in their bank information to receive the money. However, if you already bank with OCBC, you will have the option of using OCBC PayAnyone to directly pay from your OCBC savings or current accounts.
