Any advice on how I should proceed?
Any one else in a similar situation as mine before?
What kind of job are you looking for? What kind of good internships do you have? What is your expected salary as well?

If you want a high paying job but you only have little/no experience, then you are expecting unrealistic gains. If there are no jobs around, you will see more people sleeping on the streets but this ain't so. Instead of grumbling 'no jobs', why not be more specific and say 'there are no jobs that can satisfy my expectations of high pay, more bonueses, good boss, good colleagues, etc...

This has nothing to do with net worth. Both rich and poor needs to work, if they choose not to, then it is a choice but nothing to do with their net worth.

I paid up my car because I saved hard. 20% was already a lot I was going to cut off, but they wanted more, they don't care if I was experienced or ideal for the role.

I gave up after a while, just continued to look and at the same time, did temp job as I prior posted. Once all these 'cheap' roles are filled up, they will look for the others and expect differently.

That said, I finally landed a job. I had 3 jobs which was close in clinching, 1 had 5 interviews, which at the 4th, the ang moh was condescending and I didn't feel like completing the interview and ended there. The other had 3, which I completed successfully but I guess price was the deciding factor as during the first interview HR already asked if my asking can be lower. The boss also mentioned will short list me for the final, it's been, 4 weeks, I guess they already chose others.

The last one, 1 interview, chop chop, boss ok. At night offer already. Signed in 3 days and started in 7.

Perseverance, I guess. It's not that I am aiming a luxury life that I don't want to lower my asking. It's that the next job always looks at your last drawn, not experience. That's the sad thing in singapore - "paying 9-10K" but you meet their expectations at 100% or more, it happens, else, 4-5K only.

For fresh grad, go low, suffer 1 year - that's all I'm asking. Get that 1 year experience, jump and rise.

Market is bad or so I'm told, sometimes we all need to give in a bit. I took a pay cut back to my previous (not last) job. Overall however, package wins the last & previous job. So, I'm not complaining.
so how much is ur salary???

Did not get the job and both times the HR informed that I was 2nd in line to be hired. Was so close to nailing it. Feeling very depressed. Anyone same situation as me?
u sent 100 job applications, got 2 interviews... for me, i sent over 5000 resumes, no joke, but only got 2 interviews, and went both interviews , also no get job.
