Top NUS graduate accuses ministries of plagiarizing his ideas after rejecting his job application
Posted by temasektimes on April 30, 2012
An irate NUS graduate has filed a complaint on Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong’s Facebook after several futile attempts to land a job in one of the ministries.
A top graduate from NUS management department in 2011 and MOM National HR award winner, Jhony Ng Choon Yeong has not been able to find a job in a government ministry, prompting him to ask PM Lee if Singapore is ‘sincere’ in giving jobs to local graduates.
“I went to several ministries for job interviews and writing tests. While a few rejected me, most failed to give me the promised reply after the stipulated date,” he wrote.
He also accused the ministries of plagiarizing his ideas and implementing them a few weeks after the interview.
Jhony appeared to be in a state of despair when he was rejected again for PSC scholarship without being given a valid reason:
“Is NUS top student really that low quality?! If this is the case, we should really do something to NUS asap. If not, may I know is SG really sincere in making these job and scholarship offerings? Or is this just a way to get ideas for free and to make the job market looks good?”
There is no immediate response from PM Lee.
The Manpower Ministry reported today that “even though employment creation moderated slightly, the job market remained fairly strong.”
The jobless rate rose slightly, as the seasonally-adjusted overall unemployment rate increased from 2 per cent in December 2011 to 2.1 per cent in March 2012.
