Last time no need, but now many job ads will ask for it.
For engine grads who want to go into HR, just do a basic cert at Singapore Human Resource Institute should be enough. Or do an internship.

Please enlighten me.
If your are really interested in those then go take those certs. There's a aircraft maintenance license thread around here somewhere if I remember correctly. You might want to check the thread out.

Good luck with your job hunting.
