Local diploma + Private Uni degree in tourism/hospitality.

Working experience wise, worked in small boutique hotel as front desk and subsequently assistant manager, then afterwards worked in SME in tourism-related biz for around 2yrs, managerial role but barely hitting 3k salary at age 28, gotta work all weekends and PHs, with zero employee benefit.

Am thinking to switch career to something that has more growth perspective - as well as salary wise. Hospitality industry pay has always been lower than the rest, but now with covid it is getting even tougher.

Any recommendation on what avenues I may explore? Would my managerial experience helps with me getting Managament Trainee programs in some MNC? Or should I try to totally change industry and start from scratch? My concern is that my education and working experience are 90% hospitality and service related - which means I pretty much have no 'skills'.

PS: I have worked as financial planner before for less than a year, due to hating the pushy-sales culture. But I realised there are also financial planner jobs which are fixed hours with decent basic salary? Any insights would be great as well.

Preferably I can find a new job with stable working hours, starting somewhere near 3k as well, with decent employee benefits.. so that on weekends i can take up some part time stints. but am open to all ideas now really Feeling the financial burden upon marriage and baby

Many Thanks.

Bro , have u consider joining Tech sector, Tech doesn't mean u gonna be a coder, you can be a business analyst or project management and yes these pay well. starting pay range from 5k++

Huh?

A business analyst does code... it's in python. Literally most of their job posting requires you to know python. The ones that don't are jobs that pay below 4.5k. The high pay comes from the fact that they can do both code, data science related tasks and work on metrics.

A product manager does not pull 5k monthly also. I checked Shopee, their PM only pulls 4k while their tech-roles all pull 5-6k.

Sorry bro not sure where does the 4 years of experience come from.

We talking about TS? or are you asking about someone in general with 4 YOE?

If in general then yeah, more YOE = higher pay, you're right.

But if we're talking about TS then no. TS experiences are all irrelevant fields. On top of that private degree? quite hard to get fair pay. Shopee is your typical company that looks at GPA, school name and all these nonsense.

Thanks mate, and posters above as well.

I will start applying for more Stat Board roles.

Can yall advise also whether these roles are generally fixed hours without OT? I have heard of someone working for Ppl Association (like HDB related jobscope) and had to work lots of OT without pay at times. But iirc the role earns around 4k with pretty good AWS

All the best Bro.

Like some have mentioned, going Civil/Public service may be your best option if looking at Stability for upcoming Family. If just want high-income, then no choice have to do sales.
