Many Fresh Graduates Unemployed
I have spoken to a number of fresh graduates. What they told me about the employment situation is disturbing.

The recent graduate employment surveys simply do not reflect the sad state of affairs.

And being flexible about salary doesn't really seem to help.

If you graduated late last year, or are about to graduate in a couple of months, have you found a job yet?

despite of the current economic situation, i still thinking of quiting my job which pay me around 3100+/-

from the survey, I seem to get the impression that 1) it is not difficult to find jobs for fresh graduates
2) pay is very good
3) only a small minority have difficulty finding jobs.
we even have one person who wants to quit. according to the above comment. Recession?

Start your own business. Employees now pay cut, retrenchment, no pay leave, work longer hours with less pay, no bonus etc... If during such times you cannot start your own business, you never will in your whole life! Simply because when the economy is good with five figure pay and 6 months bonus, do u think u will quit and step out? It's now or never. Either you lead or you follow, who earns more is obvious.

The newspapers reported that the top BBA students from SMU draws a starting salary of $4.1k which in my opinion is very high.

But as I have always cautioned, we must look beyond the figures statistics churn out: like the technqiues used, sample size, etc...

The most accurate representation will be on the ground :)

I resigned 3 months ago to start my business. Last drawn pay is $7 k plus. Enjoy what I am doing now but be prepared to work hard.
