While itís not a happy thing to say, but yes, I do believe that compared to the local universities, RMIT students and graduates are indeed below them academically. Same for UOL.

Majority of UOL students are either from poly or from JC whose 'A' levels did not fare well enough to gain entry. That being said, I think we all deserve a second-chance and the exams of UOL are by no means a walk in the park even though it's a DL degree. there's still substantial effort required in order to get good honours.
You about admit as much, generally people opt for UOL (or RMIT for that matter) due to inadequate academic scores to qualify for the 3 local uni. Sure, of course we put in effort & deserve a second chance, but that does not change the fact as a group, we are below the local grads both academically and market value wise.

Quote:
My point about the internships was to highlight what you've said which is almost every undergrad from good unis are doing internships, so UOL students should not be slacking as they are already academically far behind the local uni peers. Besides, it would be good exposure to mix around with the good uni students and pick up essential skills from your superiors during internships.
Agreed.

I used to work as a mortgage loans banker in OCBC.
Basic 2.9k with allowance up till 800.
Once you hit commission, its anywhere from 900 till 5 digits.
Its a sales job tho...

I'm currently taking part-time UOL Acct & Finance and from your unemployment status, i'm distressed. i hope i'm not wasting my time and money taking the course. oh well...

Anyway, i hope you find employment soon with good pay and prospects.

All the best & Good Luck!!!

Since mid Aug till now.. I guess a fresh grad like me w/o any exp has difficulty finding a job in banking/financial industry.. Maybe I shld start off by doing contract/temp work in bank to gain hands on exp.. Afterall, work exp matters the most! ):

Hmm, what's your asking salary? Also, is your resume done up properly? Try to get a few people who have been working for some time to have a look. Even better, get a HR to evaluate and see. After all, a shoddy resume reflects badly on you.

Lastly, if all else fails, Do try a sales role as I believe they are more open to fresh grads. It may not be your style but best to start somewhere and show you do not stay unemployed for too long.

Asking for this kind of low salary just cheapen your cv and make you look desperate. Most bank freshies are going for min $3.5k now, you really think a bank will choose you just because you cheaper by 1k?

Depends. If all you have is a UOL degree and no exprience or skill set in any other thing other than being cheap at 2.2k, then 99% sure gone liao.

Not true. Banks hiring more foreigners and you think they won't be undercutting the 'expected' salaries by 1k less?
