Default MBA / Masters grads

Any MBA grads to be (2020) here with working exp, care to share how the job hunt has been going amidst the current global economic outlook? I got accepted to one of the M7s but rethinking whether to go... Can anyone currently doing an MBA share their experience? Seems like post-mba opportunities in Sg are quite bleak..

It's for life. You'll have to work like 20 to 30 years. Or until you die. So what is 1 year off.
SG companies and corporate world generally speaking don't like it when they see any sort of gaps in your CV. You can only use the excuse/valid explanation of "I was freelancing and experimenting with my career options during that time" so many times, and 1 year off your career path in SG is a very big deal compared with other countries once you start thinking of compounding pay increments.

I got two gaps on my resume, one about 6 months and the current one about 10 month

Means I am hong gan and might as well book a swim at Macritchie?

Otherwise, how to explain?

you better have a good explanation lor.

i applied for internship a few years back at one of the bulge bracket banks and they kept hounding me to explain my 2 year gap (due to NS) because the HR was located overseas and I had to tell them that conscription is mandatory in SG
