Unregistered 6k+ starting for fresh grad are few and far between. The exception rather than the norm but a significant number of them exists.

5k+ is for tech MNC roles provided that you have relevant experience. Same for entry-level buy side finance. New EPass minimum is useful in your negotiations.

4-5k is common for bank flagship programs and government roles that looks hard at your class honors. Your 40th to 80th percentile tech graduates are in this zone too.

This is the reality...

So everyone please don't be mistaken by the above poster that 4.8k-6k is starting pay for fresh graduate lol. Unless maybe u are a presidential scholar.
Fully agree... those trolls in this thread just dont want to face reality.

5k? 6k? 7k? Might as well BS higher!

I see so many people around are hungry for 2.5k pay everywhere. This is the current world now.

Unregistered Fresh grad roles in tech like Shopee data engineer (5.5k+) and Indeed SWE (6-7k) etc have those kinds of starting pay. GIC fresh grad associate also around there. Not even talking about FAANGs or BBs here.

Roles above 5k starting look at relevant internship experience more than class honors. If you are the kind that can only think in linear honors -> pay increments, these fresh grad roles are probably not for you.

Unregistered All of the trolls...

Putting aside the outliers such as software engineers and peeps in IB, S&T or MBB.

The typical Graduate Program (Non-Tech) at an MNC pays around 4K ~ 4.6K starting.

The pandemic has indeed slashed the headcount but salary packages are unaffected pre-COVID. In fact some programs have their pay adjusted higher due to the new EP requirement.
