I am here to share with you my career journey over the past 10 years. I used to be an auditor working in one of the big 4 accounting firms. However, after working 1 year in Big 4, I realized that wasn't what I wanted in my career - long working hours and earning little income. I was fortunate to meet one of the Financial Services Director working in one of the largest insurance firm in the world, who offered me a marvellous and lucrative job opportunity as a financial services consultant.

I would like to say that I did not regret taking up the career path as a financial services consultant because I am currently making twice the amount that I would have made if I were to stay in audit for 10 years as an Audit Senior Manager. When I first joined the firm, I was greeted by a team of high achieving professionals. I was delighted that my director and my team provided me with ample guidance and mentoring during the course of my career, which led to where I am today as a Financial Services Senior Manager.

For those busy professionals who wants to make it big in life, the choice is clear. Join my team and we are happy to help

NTU Mech Eng here too! GPA close to yours as well. I think it really depends on what skills you have and what industry you want to go to. I got a job offer but doing more tech than mechanical eng stuff.

gtfo with your insurance BS, we don't need pests like you in this world.

Go get COVID so that you can see whether the insurance you push for can help you claim $$ or not.

Tech > Engineering.

To the OP, go search for what companies are good to work for on Glassdoor. I assume you are targeting engineering companies, so just look out for the big brand names that are offering positions within the field of expertise.

I'd personally avoid SMEs and GLCs unless you are super desperate.
