Worked for 12 years in IT. Increment slow. Now only teach 5.1k but only to learn that fresh grad in IT last year getting 4.4k.

Can't get a break..

I hope you don't face the same fate as me.

Those got in last year also not good cause this year increment will be low. You want to change job everywhere also low.

Life is not fair I learned it. So I'm not fair to my colleagues at work too.
That's the same as me. Graduated with FCH from NUS but couldn't find a job that pays 3.3k at that time. Settled for a 2.8k role at FMCG consultancy and had a few years of wage freeze. Count yourselves lucky if you have a high-paying job.

It's a vicious world out there now. Management isn't afraid of culling- and the freshies are usually the ones first to be hit (contrary to popular belief that senior mgt will be axed first)

You can also generate 10k passive income "if you know how to invest". But hey, why stop there? Why not generate 20k? Or 50? Or 100? Don't let your dreams be dreams, "if you know how to invest"!!

But serious though, why are you looking down on some fresh grads who are earning decent salary? They earn money, good for them lah. Not everyone can be as successful as you. Don't need to be a wet blanket and step one Warren buffet here. Haiz

Now freshie asking for 4.5k in IT. IT bubble is 2000 dun understand why NOW only it become lucrative and freshie getting senior pay now. HOnestly i have a freshie join last year. I dunno he get 4.5k or 3.5k la but cannot do work one.

Boss anything also ask me do, say freshie no experience.. I tell boss then we hire freshie at senior rate to do nothing? Then i tell boss, i quit now. and you rehire me as fresh grad 4.5k and i dunno how to do anything for 1 year ok?

BOss say you are fired.

Ignore the bullshitters in this thread trying to show off how smart/rich they're when they're only making peanuts.

My advice is to apply and look out for companies that are hiring.

From my limited inside news as a working professional, I know that some tech firms like Shopee/Lazada are still hiring.. I suggest connected with insiders on LinkedIn and trying to find a way in.

Don't be a guniang, ok? When I went down to NTU to do career sharing as a mid level professional, I see all the uni kids so afraid to approach the seniors / guest speakers... you lose out when you're not being aggressive. My 2 cents in this crappy economy.

so either u r a valedictorian (possible)

or a FCH (also possible but my guess is each local uni only produces 5% of FCH in their sch of biz cohort/batch).

or what we call in hokkien a dua pao xian (big cannon fairy), or in proper english, someone who exaggerates things a lot.

not i wanna say u hor. but the keywords "all of my friends."

yeah, one of smu courses is how to suckup well... hence why they went into investment banking. it's a joke of a job, don't know why Singaporeans are so fascinated with it.
