Yeah but I already 29 years old.
Be a teacher means go and apply NIE train for how long?

Don't listen to the trolls above. How about int'l (UK) firms? Maybe you can parlay that FCH for some potential openings, since your delisted uni will presumably be a familiar name to the brits? Taking a paralegal role with possibility of conversion to associate is also an option.

If you are open to outside law, then I'm sure your FCH can stand you in good stead in other industries. Just that the field of competition is also much wider.

Have you been called? What kind of law did you do during training?

Local firms not keen on my profile. International firms say no experience. They prefer someone with 3 PQE from a local firm.

Omg I kinda know how you feel! Itís not the easiest for corp trainees to get NQ job positions as there are only so many firms w a reputable Corp team & you donít have liti experience to apply to those law soc e classified ads. Have you tried wnlex? I hear they view ones good grades with high regard. Or TJ Cheng - good Corp team. Thomson legal. Bayfront law has a v good and experienced team. Vanilla law.

Grab. But looks like you'll be facing competition from ceca PRs to be Grab drivers.

Thank you. Trained in the Singapore FLA with an international firm but wasnít retained. Big four has rejected me many times. Wasnít successful with govt counsel roles.
