GUY CAN’T DO MUCH WITH HIS PRIVATE DIPLOMA, SCARED HE’LL BE DELIVERY RIDER UNTIL HE DIES

M23, ORD last month. Just some background, I didn’t really study when I was in secondary and flopped my Olevels.

Went to a private institution to get a private diploma related to business because of the people around me stigmatising ITE as it’s the end etc.

Didn’t realize that u can’t really do much with a private diploma back then unless u have a degree. Didn’t have any particular useful skills.

After I ord, parents wanted me to get a job and work instead of letting me go for degree programme. My friends told me I should just go do grab and don’t bother applying for office related jobs since I m pretty useless.

So the question is, is my life f-ed? Will I just be sole grab delivery driver till I die?

  • If you’re willing to take hardship, work a trade, like plumbing, aircons, electricians etc. don’t look down on these trade, because no one in Singapore wants to do them. You don’t necessarily need a degree to do well in Singapore. judging from your past, most likely you’ll suffer in a academic setting like university again.
    One example is one of the tradesman I regularly engage. Based on his charging model, he can likely make close to 10K on a good month. Of course, he most likely worked very hard to achieve that kind of reputation in the industry to allow him to charge a premium for his skill.
    U can consider doing an apprenticeship. Sometimes his apprentice will be doing the work when I engage him. But seems like most can’t tahan the hardship cos they don’t last long. So prepare to really work damn hard. Of course do not expect alot of salary at first. But once u gain enough experience, u can always start to strike out on your own
  • I dunno man. 20+ years ago, I was in Express stream (not like it is a big deal). And 20+ years later i have friends who are from Normal (A) and Normal (T) owning business in different fields.
    Sometimes success in life can depend, but not solely, on academic result. If your lifepath is focused on getting a good and high paying job, I think you won’t find much headway here.
    If you are willing to use your brain/creativity/determination/blah blah blah more… You can potentially get more out of life that you would imagine.
    Someone told me, success in life is determined by what you are doing from 8pm to 10pm everyday. But read between the line. It is not about the timeframe, it is about what are you doing when you can afford the time to chill and relax.
    All the best to you.
