Default Is School Administrator a Good Career for Fresh Grads?

Say, a Student Services Officer or Admissions Officer role. What are the future prospects and career progression like? Is it possible to jump to private sector in the future? Thanks.

Considering an offer from a local polytechnic. Wondering whether to accept it.

It's really a basic admin job. Unless your diploma/degree is those odd ball kind without market value, I don't think this sort of job got much to learn and develop career.

For those want to develop a career and move up the salary scale, I don't recommend they take up any admin job in a poly or uni, too dead end and monotonous. Good as a retirement job, but bad idea as a first job.

I was in ntu admin for 2 years & fully agree, its very slow and laid back env which everyone just sop rot till retire mentality. The salary increase and promotion opp is also very limited.

But having said that if you cant find anything in civil service or mnc, its still better than joining those local sme. Local sme pay the same shiit level but expect u to work ur asss off. At least in uni/poly u go off on time and can tea break whenever u want.
