Need to take on diff role from your past to stay employed.

If you have been waiting for the same role same salary for the past one year, stop.

I understand your situation. Some more now hard trying times. You are not alone. Try live within your means and try harder to get on board a job

depends on how desperate you are..

i know of friends who r jobless:

1) dun wan la.. this job i dun like
2) i dun want to work in this company
3) pay too little
4) the title is important to me..
5) dun even talk about changing industry for her..

I gave up sharing job opportunities to her..

Until her mindset has changed... there is nothing i can do... only severe desperation may change her mind set...

A bias I need to point out is that MBA graduates may be unemployed in the short term not because they could not get a job, but perhaps could be due to the lack of suitable roles fitting of their aspirations and goals. That's precisely the reason why Stanford MBA's employment rate is lower than even a rank 20 MBA program. Top MBAs do not just take any job in the market - every move in their careers are planned with careful deliberation and is closely aligned with their final objectives. If a job doesn't cut it, they would rather not take it.

To add on, it is hard to get admitted to INSEAD not primarily because of the preparation work - GMAT, essays, interviews, etc (since you'll be pretty much doing the same thing for every other biz sch applications anyway), but largely due to the stringent selection criteria. There's a cap on every nationality in order to craft a diverse class. To be more specific, roughly about 10+ Singaporeans get admitted for each intake. So candidates are usually creme de la creme in order to beat the competition and get admitted.

Granted there's no 'INSEAD type' by skin colour or nationality, the diverse candidate pool can however be characterized by some pretty apparent common traits like strong leadership, global outlook, international work experience, high self-awareness, intellectual humility, and strong ability to contribute and effect change for the better.

And yes, I'm speaking as an INSEAD MBA.
I'm not quite sure why you guys are so hung up about an MBA. As a business owner and an employer, i couldn't care less about your MBA. I would rather you tell me how you can add value to my business? How you can increase the sales and bottomline of my company. Who cares about MBA other than academics? Elon Musk certainly don't give 2 hoots about MBAs.

Does the government discriminate SIM degree holders?
Just graduated with a Business degree and tried to apply for generalist role (Asst Manager etc) in stat board/ministries and received a total of ZERO response from them.

Didn't the government say they don't see paper qualifications 100%?

There is only one role for an Asst Manager, etc and you expect them to accept EVERYONE who apply ??

Be realistic and stop the blame game. You can also apply in other industries.

If you are eyeing for an 'iron bowl' in civil service, the chances are, every other ppl are doing the same like you.

So the competition is there. And is very competitive.

You already say, ..'my business', '...my company' and it is all about you and your business.

Having an MBA is important to the individual. He can fly anywhere.

If he can add value to your company and together with MBA, that person is a gem.
