Think you better stick to polsci and fass hires for your 4k hires

If you put a better salary of 8k, you can hire some decent com sci grads to migrate away from excel.

Generally business should have their data in sql then extract for analysis. (R, pthyon, sciki)
Key is automation. You do not want to waste time to fix !REF
Using excel is really what polsci and fass grads do.
as a fass grad i felt attacked hahaha

Fass grads can write a decent essay, think relatively logically and can use excel.
Definitely worth at least 4k

It is the “pseudoprofessional” companies that say poisci/fass no good.

I'd like to see the majority of FASS grads being proficient in the "technical" stuff.

Default Hindsight

Hello dear juniors,

I was from fass and make abt 15k/mth after working 10+ years (caveat im in banking)

If you think that's crazy, it's actually not..becos some ppl ard my age have already become heads of finance, heads of compliance etc and they shld make even more.

A girl whom i went on exchange with in uni has already sold her first company (also ex-fass).

I understand the starting salary is impt for most ppl (including myself when i was younger). But with the benefit of hindsight, what's more impt than that 3k-5k is your POTENTIAL and what YOU DO over the next 10-20 years.

If you have a certain passion or strength, then try and think about how you can monetize it. (be it cooking, web designing etc). Take a job to learn a skill, how to do certain things..not only to earn a salary.

If you want to be a trader, then start to code, start to invest (yes, during this circuit breaker!). Take that 3k trading job over the 4k+Operations job. If you stick to it, i'd bet my dollar that after 10-20years, that fund manager/CIO is the guy starting with 3k, not that 4k guy. (Of cos the Ops person could end up as the COO)

It is all about your POTENTIAL in the long run, not so much about your starting salary (and it doesn't matter whether it's local or pte uni)

When you're young, you can afford to take a bit more risk becos you have less to lose.

I will not be replying further..hope the above will provide motivation to some of you.. All the best and good luck!

Enough bashing on FASS. Granted there are some exceptional FASS students out there with superb quantitative abilities.

However... take it from me (or ask any of your colleagues with friends from Arts background). Majority of them can’t even do basic query tasks on MySQL. And their undergrad coursework heavily lacks empirical analysis. I don’t fault them, it’s too theoretical and conceptual to be translated into the workforce.


They’re definitely not worth 4K.

FYI I know many Fass grads who have already secured above average paying jobs while there are students from biz/engin still struggling to find and stressing out. It all ultimately boils down to every individual’s ability/portfolio/how well they source for jobs. So stop putting labels on students purely based on their faculty. Enough of generalizing....

Am class of 2020 as well from one of the Big 3 unis, lucky enough to have gone for 3 rounds of interview for a coy, and then ended up discussing about salary at the end of the third interview.

Quoted a range from glassdoor and was told that the numbers are inflated. Looks like the covid situation is not helping either.

Currently just waiting for the HR to get back to me, hoping for good news....
