Poly grads not getting jobs as quickly: Poll
#1
http://www.straitstimes.com/singapore/po...ickly-poll 

 Fresh polytechnic graduates had it tougher in the job market last year, according to the latest survey conducted by the five polytechnics here - although the institutes said there was no cause to worry.

 According to the survey, 86.4 per cent of their graduates found permanent, freelance or part-time jobs last year within six months of graduation. This is a drop of 4.2 percentage points from 2016's figure of 90.6, and the lowest since 2005, when the Joint Polytechnic Graduate Employment Survey was first conducted.

The survey committee also said that changing aspirations among graduates have also contributed to the falling employment rate. A spokesman added: "More polytechnic graduates are choosing to start work later, or plan to set up their own businesses...

"While the number of polytechnic graduates who cannot find employment has not changed significantly over the years, with the shrinking base of economically active graduates, this results in a rising unemployment rate."

Poly grads should be back bone of the economy.
It is becoming lousier as standard drop

No job, no money, no babies.

Then PaP will blame us for not giving birth again.  And thus, they import more FTs.

So, the Chicken comes first or the Egg??

Don't waste time and money to take poly.

1. Simply get a fake degree.

2. If want better... go for milled. Coz Mom put milled and fake as different classification.

3. Best is... go get an AFFILIATED degree to some lowly ranked Indian university. This is cheap, fasterer and betterest.

And we need a breakdown of % for perm, freelance and part-time jobs... what type of perm jobs? Retail? F&B? freelance photographer also considered? Part-time waiter also considered?
