Lol u are clearly out of the loop. Don't just read the daily crap on linkedin from recruiters. General firm outlook is a recession is imminent - hiring has slowed down tremendously.

Most important factors on your CV are your practice area, firm/team 'prestige' (which correlates with the calibre/complexity of deals), your own deal experience, and to some extent, your law school and academics.

Getting the qualification can bolster your CV, but alone is not very useful for international firms in SG and elsewhere (speaking as someone who is working overseas but qualified only in SG). The exception might be the NY bar if you intend to do US capital markets work, but this requires you to have a pretty impressive CV anyway.

It's probably easier to simply move to a good corporate/finance B4 team, and then switch after 2+ years, than to go through the effort of E&W/NY qualifications (which can be done concurrently in any case).

This recession will likely be caused by a general supply chain issue.
Plus inflation.
Best not to overleverage otherwise end up in a lot of trouble
