With the recent spotlight on the PAP-endorsed presidential candidate Dr Tony Tan’s pro-foreigner education policies and the relentless influx of foreigners, the state media has been churning out propaganda lately to convince Singaporeans that they still come ‘first’ in terms of job opportunities.
According to Channel News Asia, a record 9,066 students are graduating from the Nanyang Technological University (NTU) this year with two-thirds already ’securing’ employment.
It interviewed brothers Harry and Henry Zhuang have just been conferred their Digital Animation degrees and will be working in the same company.
“I think there are jobs available. It’s whether you’re willing to work or not,” Harry said.
However it was revealed whether these jobs are full-time permanent positions or short-term contract ones only. Neither was the starting pay mentioned.
The Straits Times followed up with another misleading report about one NTU accounting graduate who is earning ‘close’ to $10,000 monthly after landing a job as a sales analyst with an investment bank fresh out of school last year.
