Oh didn't know this was reported on the news. Where, the Straits Times? Enlighten us with what little knowledge you have in either scene.

So what if a couple of Mid Sized firms institute pay cuts? Does it mean Singapore law as a whole is not doing well? Do you actually know that the Big 4 still has very high retention rates

Prior to Covid, could expect 1-3 months over and above the gross figures from the previous post (i.e. total $134-$155k for 4Q year) depending on grading band. Most doing ok would have gotten closer to the upper end of that band

I mean I don't get why you're crying. You work 9 to 12 hours a day for a little over 5K, no?

Assuming you're a girl:
1. Look good. If you're not naturally pretty, fix it by brushing up on your makeup skills and investing in a good wardrobe. The aim is to look professional and attractive but not slutty.

2. Have a photo of yourself included in your CV when applying for a job. Have it professionally taken after completing step 1.

3. During training, prove your worth and work like a dog. Most partners are old school and would be very happy to see a trainee voluntarily put in long hours and go the extra mile. (But don't be over eager about it in a teacher's pet kind of way).

4. If applicable to your partner/the firm, show that you can drink and hold conversations. Give your partner confidence that he/she will not be embarrassed to bring you along to client drinks or networking sessions. (This coupled with step 1 will give you an edge over many other female SG law grads, who are very good at studying but are often not seen as "worldly" enough.)

5. Be respectful and friendly to everyone - not just the partners and associates but also the secretaries, tea ladies etc.

6. Get retained and profit.

7. As an associate, keep in contact with your peers/seniors in other firms as well as recruiters. You will then be aware of opportunities as they come by so you can eventually plan your next move.

Some of the points probably don't apply if you already know you're not getting retained but you get the gist...

Definitely not, but you will be lucky if she doesn't ask for maintenance. It's called a Women's Charter for a reason.
