Furthermore, my parents earning $2k+/mth for 20 over years without promotion, is it weird that I feel it's okay to just stay content with $4k forever? Feel it's more than enough for me.

That said, I'm interested in applying for the Technology Analyst program but here are some of my concerns:
1) Anyone (with or without IT experience in ACN) ever experience imposter syndrome?
2) I'm fine with OT-ing on the weekdays. But can't be out of 20 working days, everyday need to OT right? Even on the weekends?
3) We will be thrown into whatever projects that needs manpower, but what are some of the actual work done daily? Making slides? User Acceptance Testing?
4) Any advice if I should go for the program or what skills I need to be able to perform decently in a tech field? (coding?)

Still don't know what a Technology Analyst (with no exp) does. It's either this or applying for a traineeship. Sorry for the long post.
1) Definitely. I'm with experience and I feel those without experience and not learning fast enough taking up way lesser workload, take a long time to get things done.
2) Let's just say, in a year I OTed every single week (everyone in my team does).
Worst was 3 months straight, every single day OT average 2hrs, worse would be 7 to 9 hours on a single day.
3) Some TAP people gets thrown to do development. Without experience, they suffer.
4) No comments.

Still don't know what a Technology Analyst (with no exp) does. It's either this or applying for a traineeship. Sorry for the long post.
1) Learn on the job one, curve is steep, high pay for a reason. If can pass interview means they think you got the tenacity to do the job.
2) OT usually weekdays, weekend nobody working one. OT only because deadlines, need to deliver outcome. If not OT for what?
3) You get interviewed, Manager like you, then choose you to join their account/team, not you choose one. Wait long long you get to choose as a fresh hire. Slides? Tech Analyst role leh, think you can answer yourself.
4) Traineeship vs full time job with pay, insurance, perks and CPF, no brainer. Many fresh grad these days are afraid of upskilling. What you learn in school really less than 20% can be applied straight into the job. Like you said for engineering, pay not as high like other field. IT jobs in demand but low supply. But more importantly coding is becoming an essential skill. Don't have to be a pro but need to be able to read and understand things. Think you apply first bah, whether you are accepted is one thing, don't count your chickens before they hatch. Market is oversupply now, limited jobs due to pandemic. If you have been applying for roles you would know, hundreds of applicants for one role.

Culture depends on the project. If you are on contract you dont have a choice-contract roles are usually tied to the project.

If u are a fulltimer, you may be able to avoid being staffed on bad projects.but that depends on many factors, first of all do you happen to be skilled in something that a better project needs. If you are someone without any skillset in any tech tools then you are just a general purpose staff, meaning you dont get to choose your projects.
