You will be lucky to even secure a renewal after 6 months, banking everything on them offering you a perm position after 6-12 months is just asking for trouble.

Sure, there will always be the top 10% who are really good, lucky to get good connections etc who make it, but this is more strike 4D than anything. Reality is your job search in banking world so far after 3 months has been largely futile, this is the clearest indication of what's happening in many industries in Singapore. The good old days are gone and the new norm is setting in.

Top scholars and ivy-leaguers will always have plenty of opportunities offered by MNCs and banks, but normal people need to be flexible and not limit their options unnecessarily.

that sounds very worrying lol. I have been trying to apply for perm but to no avail so far
