Most commodity houses don't have that big of an intake. They are a lot more lean across all depts compared to say a bank. For example, a giant like Trafigura only has 3-4 HR staff sitting in their Singapore office. Contrast that with a local bank which might have like 15-20.

Like the earlier poster said go get yourself emplaced within a strategy or commercial function and opportunities will be there. Even staying within the industry you can still make good money and enjoy very decent hours.
