    Good luck? Why? Normally I thought skilled work doesn't require any qualification but experience. Does it mean that if I don't have a diploma, I can't join their team?

    maybe they require you to type some reports. and generally higher education means that you are more capable of such task.

    be your own boss, cos most client don't care much whether you are a MBA or only PSLE, as long you can do what you promised.

    Hi mod, I'm just surprised that to work as a full time photographer, diploma is needed. I'm just wonder what other people think about it.

    1. You will provide digital photographic services for advertising,commercial and corporate client.
    2. You will maintain the photograph database, including editing, colour manage, downloading, categorizing and filing of photos,
    3. Maintain the equipment.

    This is like recruiting an Army of One. Hopefully the pay is equal to the work required. easily above $2k a month from the requirements.

    Perhaps they want the photographer to have some skill in graphic design??

    As you know working in Singapore, the employer try to have pao-ka-liao employee

    In case one designer resign, then still have the photographer to do the job

    i believe even a non-diploma person can get the job if they are willing to go for the interview. i had got a job that asked for a degree holder before, when i had only got a diploma.

    i would be inclined to think that the reason they asked for a diploma person was because they are hoping to get someone with some additional skills besides those stated there (e.g. engineering, business knowledge, whatever).

    whatever is the case, if they need someone to do the job, even if all the applicants are non-diploma candidates, they still gotta choose.

    you are not the boss, the boss want to hire who, is their own problem.

    if they are asking for dip holders but they do not need it, and they end up limiting their pool of potential photographers, that's also their problem, in the long run they will suffer.

    if not, every company has its own unique needs, there are also things like personal preferences - you are not the one hiring, how would you know?

    Hey Kenji, have faith in your own abilities. If u think u're up to the mark, go for it, regardless if u have the diploma.

    After some time, u'll resign and u'll gain experience, and u can share with the bros here in CS how was it like working there (without that diploma)
