Good on you, 3.4k is decent.

Even if they land a 4k job 6 months later, you would already be 20.4k ahead of them. They will take 34 months to catch up (using their $600 extra per mth vs ur 3.4k) with your overall earnings.

I am unable to get an interview more than 6 months after leaving my last job. Tried applying for the SGUnited Traineeships and the rejection is very fast and they don't even look at your application.

Even though I state a very big cut in my expected salary, no employer is biting. I am considering going blue collar if this prolongs, before we open our borders. Then even blue collar jobs will be unavailable.
the traineeships are for those who grad in 2019 or 2020

Gosh, so many Schadenfreudes/Karens/self-righteous people here.

If you have nothing constructive or helpful to say, just keep your toxic comments to yourself.

Karma is a boomerang.

The monetary value of travel depreciates faster than a car. A few thousand dollars spent buying the trip can depreciate to zero within days.

What of value do you retain from it? Nothing. Even a car has scrap value. Even a spent mobile phone can be sold to a ah beng shop.

Also up until the early 2000s, no one felt entitled to a reward after passing their final exams. What is a grad trip? A REWARD for passing exams?! Needing a break after SCHOOL? Sounds really ridiculous, feeble, and infantile.

How about actually working hard for a decade first before needing a BREAK or a REWARD?

Fine if your parents already made it and could afford to take you with them on their overseas trips. But NOT when you haven't even started work right after graduation (after losing many thousands on education)! What a face palm move!

stay positive and continue the fight bro! seems like hiring sentiments are slowly picking up here in APAC beginning June (from a LinkedIn research article). try tapping onto the HBS and your undergrad alum network?
