Hi guys,

I graduated last year with bachelors in banking and international finance and have started finding jobs since the starting of this year. I only had a 2 months finance internship and a 5 months operations executive role in a small oil & gas firm under my belt all before I graduated.

I am interested in compliance but I do not have any relevant experiences regarding compliance as you can see and seeing how there's an enhanced support from the MAS for singapore IBF-accredited courses now. Should I take up ICA Advanced Certificate in Regulatory Compliance??

Do you guys think it'll be a waste of time or should I just focus on searching for compliance jobs?

Your inputs would be much appreciated :)

If you are fully covered by the funding, go for the course.

Concurrently start applying for jobs. To be honest I am doubtful the cert really helps much since actual work is king but the employer may have a better impression that u have made the effort to upgrade yourself

thanks first for all ur inputs.


An ica level one cert barely scratches the surface. Not that cams is fantastic but the scope is definitely wider and thereís so called industry recognition. Advise to take cams if cost not an issue or sponsored.

Definitely for us banks u should have a cams cert as itís seen as a should have. Note itís still a lot of theory but better than notjing

Do both concurrently. Keep your expectTions in check for the very though. It probably would have very minimal bearing on whether you get a job because of it at the end of the day. If cost is not borne by u then of course just do it

Current compliance professional here. Poll for other compliance professionals, do you all feel that the hype and good days of hiring compliance are over ? Even before covid, the headhunter calls were already much fewer than say 2 years ago?

Anyone already thinking of other non-compliance/mixed roles that are up & coming and ill appreciate the transferable skillset of compliance (other than internal audit, ops risk, governance related roles)?

been in the kyc analyst industry for a couple of years now. It's super super difficult to get a perm role in this industry, even with all the stupid cert. Getting tired of contract roles and thinking of hopping to other industry that have perm roles now. Anyone felt the same way ??
