The problem is Singaporeans mostly think they are entitled just because they are born and grow up here. So they think they should deserve higher pay even though they just graduated and have 0 work experience. Ask them start lower pay they will start to think it is the end of the world.

I observe those pinoys who work in recept area in my office building. Although it is just a recept job, they work with pride and I can see their confidence and professionalism. Ask a Singaporean to work there, I confirm they will start throwing black face. You see why the employers rather hire foreigners ? Singaporeans ask for it one.

I disagree wor, you learn about customer service when you work as a recep. Can also train you to be more confident when you talk to people. Also depends what the fresh grad wants to work as when he develops his career further, e.g hotel management or any career that deals with people/human interaction, this will be a good starting point.
Can work 1 year to earn some experience then advance to a better job.

Many Singaporeans want to fly when they haven't even learn how to walk.

Better be a receptionist than unemployed. Unemployed got what experience? At least receptionist got people skills or other skills. Anyways, its true. Many Singaporeans will reject the offer and rather wait for better opportunities while being unemployed (even if need to wait very long).
