If you want to work in SLA, ensure that you have very good degree with specialised knowledge and work in department that give you very good career prospect.

When you have lousy degree, like BA, Bsc, you are likely to be posted to Land Titles Registry, where you are a trainee learning how to do conveyancing work.
I know those managers who work there. My group analysed those profile of these managers.
Most elderly one born in 1960s are just A level holders.
Managers born in 1970s got lousy paper qualification , one from New Zealand degree, one from Indian university, and others from SIM degrees.

If they work in private sector, can they be managers ? no, they will be admin assts.

Actually , you don't need a degree to become conveyancing clerk or secretary, you just need 5 O levels to work in large law firms.

When you have BBus (Hons) or specialised degrees from NUS/NTU, you will be posted to HR, Finance, or Legal (if you have recognised law degree), you will go far.
Someone become Dept Head at 35 year old, then become director at 41 year old because he is professional..
