Recent grads of SG: are you getting offers?
How has your job search been going?
I’m currently job hunting and only got a handful of interviews and an offer with a pretty low salary :/
I graduated from NTU and got offered $3000 gross, I’m not sure if that’s the market rate now that we seem to be entering a recession.
but most people around me had at least a $3.5k starting pay so I’m a bit conflicted, not sure if I’m being lowballed or the economy is rly bad now
- You can start with some contract work? That’s how i (and some others) started out, it was only at least till after 1.5 yrs of contract work that i got my first perm job post-grad at a local bank.
Was converted after the initial 10 months of contract, which i considered blessed. Because getting a headcount in the department was tough.
The past 7-8 months before the initial bank contract, i was working in a government agency.
I’m from private uni by the way.
- Most calls will come in after cny in feb after resume dropping
Depends on how eager you are to accept the first few offers – can be tempting not to accept something but know what you are giving up
- Same. I started applying end of oct. Went for 8 companies’ interviews till date. Was officially jobless by end dec.
When i graduated in 2016, i was offered $2600 for a mid size accounting firm
- I got no advise for getting offers, but..
One thing I can advise you is properly look at termination notice and probation period.. If you end up hating the job you wouldn’t want to be giving money to terminate immediately .
Turns out I don’t even want to do the work I’ve been wasting a great fraction of my life studying and paying for.
2 weeks is a long time when you feel like shit .
If a company only gives you an afternoon to accept the job offer take a week or two to do it .. Never give into something that can affect future chances.
There’s always new chances to be discovered
