No worries. Not always the early bird wins. The bird who have connection wins.
You're a real talent!

Dear Juniors

I was in a similar situation when I graduated, so I can fully empathized with how you are feeling. Fret not, just continue applying for jobs and do detailed research on the company ahead of each interview. People always see the downside but missed the opportunities in a crisis. Companies are hiring lesser, but it also meant that you have lesser competitors once you joined the firm. Stay tight in your first job, once you get it and I am sure you will eventually get one, and you will promote much faster than some of your seniors. Have faith and stay strong

No la. Just assistant director only la. Will be shadowing the current senior director for few years. To learn the rope. My dad say the company need fresh young blood so no choice lo. Wanted to travel the world before start toiling work until death.

The job also very boring. Heard its just lots of meetings. Business trips. Sian.
My passion is in music not finance

Payment is not just about your productivity but also whether the economy allows the employer to afford that rate.

The economy at large and the ongoing pandemic don't give a damn what you as an individual think your work is worth.

Look at you, getting upset that your degree and vast intellect is in reality worth a lot less than the adults used to tell you it was.

Why only 4.5k? Should be 5k la. You start at 4.5k as your starting pay. Will take you 2 years to get back to 5k. Should just demand for 5k la.

Cannot get. There are lots of other company willing to offer 5k for untested entitled fresh grad.
