Intercontinental is on a distinguished road

I am not one but would say the usual way is to work a number of years in a reputable firm in Singapore and then move offshore. Much will probably depend on your area of practice. Generally I would say the more esoteric it is, the more sought after you are.

Get top grades. Then work hard for 3 years in a top local firm (e.g. A&G, Drew, R&T, etc.). Make sure your work is outstanding and get good references. Then try to jump to an international firm. Not just any international firm though, some of them don't pay that well. Go for the magic circles (UK) or whiteshoes (US) - they pay the best. The bonus won't be as good as the local firms, but that's to be expected as your base salary will be much higher.

Seems like its unnecessary to work hard to get onto the Dean's List now. There are many ways to appeal to your lecturer to get that coveted "A". Can't wait for the juicy details of Prof. Tey Tsun Hang's shenanigans to come to light.

I don't think she's as inept as you think, maybe a perfectionist who wanted perfect scores or even a romantic relation rather than bribery.

Because dean's lister can't be just do well in one module, unless Prof Tey taught her in all her modules.

I've heard that the big 4 starts you off (after being called) at 5.5k. Does anyone know how much a mid-size firm offers?
