Higher salary expectations for fresh graduates this year

Higher salary expectations for fresh graduates this year

Grads are expecting almost $3,000 as starting pay this year.

With the economy doing better this year, salary expectations among entry-level graduates from local universities are higher than before.

According to a survey conducted by campus recruitment agency JobsFactory this year, The average expected monthly basic salary as stated by respondents was $2,923, up by $118 from $2,805 last year.


Top graduates who obtained at least a second class upper honours degree said they expected basic salaries of at least $3,089, which represented a 4.9 per cent increase from last year.

The survey also revealed that 75 per cent of fresh graduates are open to accepting contract-based job offers.

In addition, technology giant Apple has nudged out Singapore Airlines (SIA) to be the private employer of choice among fresh graduates this year. It received 45 per cent of the votes received in the survey, beating companies such as SIA and Google, which came in second and third places this year respectively.

According to a statement by JobsFactory, the results could be due to the brand's increased presence in Singapore, strengthened by the recent popular launches of the iPad and iPhone4.

Local banks also made their presence felt in the survey of the top 10 private employers of choice. Local financial institution DBS Bank led the pack in fifth position, while Deutsche Bank, Citigroup, Barclays Capital Global Services and JP Morgan Chase & Co. also made it to the top 10.

In the survey of top government or government-linked employers, the Singapore Tourism Board (STB) continued to top the rankings for the third year running. It was followed by the Economic Development Board and the Ministry of Education (MOE) in second and third places respectively. The National University of Singapore came in fourth, while the Defence Science and Technology Agency (DSTA) landed in fifth position.

Most government bodies related to the financial industry also fared better this year, with the Ministry of Finance leaping five spots to number seven in the survey.
