Unregistered BSc Econs & Management 3rd Class

Starting salary - 2.6k

Current salary - 4k


Have a friend:
BSc Econs & Finance 1st Class

Starting salary - 3.5k

Current salary - not too sure but seems to be around 5k+


Duration is about 5 years for both.

Anyway, now is covid-19 labour environment so it might be good to lower expectations a little.

Best of luck to all fellow UOL grads and undergrads.

Final hiring decision afterwards is based on your performance.

Btw, there people from SIM-UOL in my dept. Jia you guys.
Hi, thanks for your perspective.

I'm very interested in entering the banking sector (non-IB), currently a final year student at one of your mentioned courses. May I contact you for some advice?

Second this. Local / private uni graduates are most likely out there working their butts of or sourcing for jobs during this pandemic. The trollers here are most likely the old birds who were retrenched or have their spot in the company taken over by the younger fresh graduates.

At the end of the day, regardless of which uni you're from, make full use of the opportunity given to you. I'm from a local uni myself but but I have colleagues from private uni (not insurance sorry) who are performing way better than their local uni counterparts. All the best!

Might not be much compared to FO in banks/tech but we all start somewhere & have our own path. Just work hard, communicate well & network. All the best everyone, be it private or local uni grad. Don't hate, just love. Life is too short too hate & bash each other. There's more to life.
True. I went a different path wanting to get into public service after graduation. My first job in private sector was just $2000. Went for few interviews but they only want to match my pay. Went into GLC with experience but was paid lower than fresh grad salary. After few years, left for private sector which has given me a pay bump.

I won't say that I am very successful, but I believe most SIM-UOL grads will do better with more experience in the private sector.
