"I have an MBA"
The employer still cannot link themselves to this statement.

vs

"I led projects to successful launch with Cisco"
"I designed the product development procedure to cater to customer context and was accepted by Seagate"
"I designed the product which led to acceptance by Micron"
"I reduced customer complaint from Toshiba from 1000ppm to 200ppm"
The employer immediately opens up and will want to find out more. This creates a linkage with your potential employer to put you ahead of your Competitor.

Yes paper qualification is Good. But it does not stop there because it needs to lead to something.
But that's not how majority of people with MBA thinks. Esp those not from ivy leagues. They think "I have a MBA therefore I am entitled to that senior management position even if i have no management experience".

Unregistered Do you all think contract job or SGUnited traineeship is better under the current circumstances?

Just graduated with a Business degree and tried to apply for generalist role (Asst Manager etc) in stat board/ministries and received a total of ZERO response from them.

Didn't the government say they don't see paper qualifications 100%?
Yeah it's true not 100%, but 99.999% of the time they do. LOL
