U have a gd headstart already...try to secure for full time position & perform during your internship...myself being a marketing grad..wrote in unsolicited and was called for a interview with this pretty prominent Japanese FMCG firm for interview..but eventually they told me for marketing position,they require candidate with RELEVANT experience of at least 3 years, they could only offer me a logistics role.. In the end, i said no.

fellow brothers of pte degree education, just a heads up. dont get your hopes too high, i'm from uol, grad with 2nd upper in banking. our degree is ****, so dont expect the 'get good grades get high paying job and fly upwards' story to fall into place. lol, if u r lucky, u get into a firm with alot of financial benefits, good package (3-7months) bonus, with a decent basic. the basic salary range among my friends and i, ranges from 2.3K - 3.5K, with most of them earning below 3K. lol, sorry to spoil your dreams, believe it or not, this is true at least in the finance side.

I landed a HR job with an accounting firm almost immediately after graduation late last year.
But I chose to leave after 4mths+ as I was not promised of a salary adjustment after probation ended. The department culture was bad and the learning curve (HR) was lower than expected, hence contributing to my resignation.

Took a break and decided to look for better opportunities but to no avail.
Have been attending interviews with the ministry/stats board and private firms, but sadly no news.

currently pending outcomes with the public service and the labor union.
hopefully the future is bright... ...

Agree I 3.5 k seems unbelievable. I have just started work for 1 year armed with a rmit degree with distinction and only drawing gross pay of abt $2.9 k per month

^dumb and dumber. If you get into the right company, under the right circumstances, you will be able to fetch above 3K for a start. I secured a job before the 2nd interview date for a particular firm, and hence, cancelled the 2nd interview on purpose. when questioned why, i told them i have secured another job. They insisted that i go down, i went. During the interview, they asked about the company i've signed with, and the package i was offered. During the 3rd round i was offered an improved compensation and was asked to withdraw from the company i've signed. This is how timing plays a part in your job search. I'm a uol graduate, i'm drawing 3.47K. That being said, of course you need to be able to perform during interviews.

Grad 2 years ago frm sim biz management
Currently working as a yearly contract accounts assistant dawing 1.8/mth
Pretty demoralising to see fresh local uni grads being parachuted to assistant manager position while I am still on a rolling renewable contract. Have been looking around for better prospects however results still points to account assistant roles.
From my experience, my words for aspiring students would be to work for experience before settling down on a degree. Really envy my poly mates who did not further their education doing well in engineering and IT field earning 3k/ mth woth their diploma and experience.
As for those currently pursuing their private degrees, it would be good to taper down your expectations in job scope, industry and salary. Degree holders are now like O levels. Instead be contented with life then being obessed with being successful. Although i do feel depressed seeing individuals doing well, overall I am rather contented with my life.
