Are the good times coming back to Singapore? This is the impression that state media appears to give the public with an article claiming that two in three graduates of this year’s cohort at NTU found (good-paying) jobs before graduation.
Though there are 5,934 NTU students who will graduate this week, the media chooses to focus only on 115 students who pursued a double degree in Accountancy and Business, claiming that all of them have found jobs before graduation.
“In terms of salary, the top 10 per cent are drawing an average of S$7,145, which is almost double what their peers get on average S$3,546,” it blares.
NTU said its graduates received two job offers on average before accepting their first position.
