It feels like life is so unfair. I mean… local graduates from business schools are being pursue with job offers a year before they graduate! While non-business school graduate have to search for a job and get it only a month after graduating.

TALENT is so sought after for the financial sector that local and foreign employers are sounding out students about job offers a year before they graduate.

In fact, the majority of graduates from business schools at the National University of Singapore and Nanyang Technological University (NTU) secured jobs while they were still in school – a fact that could help explain why business courses are wildly popular among those applying for varsity admission.

But non-business students can take heart too. A survey by NTU of its graduating class this year shows that nine out of 10 graduates landed jobs within a month of leaving school, and their average starting salary is $2,900, up $210 from last year.
