    Hi,
    I am going to graduate soon but I am rather worried that I'll not be able to find a job. Sigh...

    So just asking all the working professionals out there, how is the job market in Singapore? Isizt really getting better like what all the news and ministers say?

    Regards,

    Don't know about Singapore. But in Down-under here some sections are tough going and some sections are doing fairly well.

    I happen to be in one of the bad sectors in which the job prospects are not looking good. You may get a job in it but pay is lesser and demands are more. A few friends are facing prospects of long-termed unemployement and we are hanging on with pay cut.

    I guess it's wiser to acquire multi-skills with an eye on the crystal ball as to which sectors of economy are on the upsurge. Another thing is not to discount self-employment. There is no one to fire you except yourself. And the earlier you start the more time you have for the business to establish.

    It's a tough world. Lets' hope out of the unemployed, there might be one or two Singapore's next red hot top fashion models raising from them.

    Hope to hear more views especially from those 30 something "mature" and established members of CS community on this.

    I waited almost 6mnths before i got an interview, and just got the offer after waiting for 2 weeks. Judging from the thickness of the RECRUIT section, there are more jobs out there, but don't expect things to get better.
    While there are more jobs available, there are also more people who are applying for those jobs (new grads & people who have decided to start looking again). Unfortunate, but this is the way the economy works. Unemployment rates are only calculated based on those who are IN the workforce, but have no employment. People who have given up looking, or have decided to run their own businesses (temporarily or otherwise) are no longer part of the equation.

    I just got one thing to say...

    IT IS DARN SCARY.

    For me, I have been on extended MC and to some extent, I feel as though I am only employed based by association.

    To some degree, I do feel unemployed too.

    It seems like there are "free" people around and maybe should meet once a week or fortnightly to practise shooting and discuss things / exchange notes and experiences in general.
