No we should not lower our expectations. Once lowered can never be increased. My advice is you can further your studies like master or PhD. Go for it. Don't graduate this year.

Ahbuden. Company now also hire fresh grad without experience what.
Sure in the beginning you have master of PhD has no value.

It's when you're 30 to 40 and company want to promote you to senior management. Those 10 heads compete with you. That's when your master degree and PhD set you apart.

Think long term.

Aiyah employers always like lowball one. Get away with the minimum amount they can pay you with. Once i got offered $5/hr for part time job even tho website say $1800/monthly. Rejected it. We should probably have a minimum wage in sg but dont think it will ever happen.

I recently got shortlisted for a final interview after super day with a FMCG grad scheme.

I always thought the salary is standardized for most grad programmes but HR asked me for my expected package and I indicated 50K per annum.

Ended up I lost the spot to some private uni guy (Iím friends with the dude) who asked for 2K a month.

It is standardised but for the management training programs. Grad programs are free game. They're of a lower quality so they're easily replaceable

Never heard of any respectable company using salary to lowball for fresh grad hire. Why would they take someone offering 2K only? Means his value is 2K
