Any fresh grads around???

Postby mysticalx » Sat, 23 Jul 2005 1:02 am

Hi people,

Just wondering if there's any fresh grads around here, like those who just graduated from NUS, NTU etc and are now looking for a job or already have one for that matter. How do you find the Singapore market like? Is it tough getting a job here, esp if you're not local? Btw, NUS graduate here, still bumming around/job hunting... Unfortunately for the bond, I've got to stick around here a little while (3 yrs to be exact).

What did you study? I guess it's always hard to find a job wherever you are, in my opinion,

Sorry for the late reply. Haven't been checking this site for a while. I did computer engineering but hmm....I'm not sure if it's for me. :? Actually I was thinking about doing Masters in a different area. Have applied for one in OZ, may go there next Feb but have to defer my bond etc...lots of trouble. Are you a fresh grad as well?

Cool....I suppose you're Singaporean? Was thinking of UWA...do you know anyone who is studying there? Btw, how much do you think I need to cover lodging, food etc besides the tuition fees every month? Any input would be greatly appreciated! Thanks.

Hi, yes I'm a Singaporean! Don't really know anyone studying there now in UWA! As for the costs, well, I stayed in Sydney which is a bit more expensive. I would guess in Perth it would cost about A$400-600 per month for a room (It would cost around $600 in Sydney so I'm thinking it'll cost less in Perth). As for food, I've always cooked my own so it's so much cheaper :) I would guess around A$150 if you cooked your own and much more if you eat out! Email me at socialjustice@gmail.com if you're interested in finding out more about exact costs coz I am sure I can find a friend who has/is studied/studying there now!
