NTU new grads get higher starting pay

SINGAPORE: Graduates from NTU's class of 2006 have lots to smile about.
They are earning higher starting salaries than ever, according to a survey by the Nanyang Technological University (NTU).

On average, the new grads take home $2,700 a month, which is $100 higher than what their seniors got.

The figure is also more than the starting pay of graduates from the National University of Singapore (NUS) and the Singapore Management University (SMU).

And, earning even more is the first batch of students under NTU's Global Immersion Programme.

This group's pay - an average of $2,900.

Many alumni said that their overseas stint helped them ace their job interviews.

"I worked with a Chinese management team, and through that 6-month stint, I start to learn about how the Chinese people work, how their social life is like, and I think this gives me a good perspective of how the Chinese view things around the world," said NTU graduate Darryl Wang, who is now a researcher at the Institute of Microelectronics.

"It (Global Immersion Programme) gives us an edge, because we were exposed to a foreign environment, we got to work in a - as what the programme is about - global immersion. So we interact more with people and we can learn the way things work, learn life skills," said NTU graduate Anselm Tan, who is now a systems manager at the DSTA.

According to the NTU survey of some 3,400 grads, nine in ten were offered jobs before or within a month of graduation.

Most opted for the private sector. - CNA/ir

Re: NTU new grads get higher starting pay

2.9k sounds good...I think if most of them enter big MNCs or big govt agencies like DSTA. Hence the high starting salary...

Re: NTU new grads get higher starting pay

usually these offering will come frm gov releated agencies.... or stepboard... so far most us got a basic of $2.8k starting pay offering for private sectors... and those with revalent experience a $3.2k...

most likely they up the starting salaries to attract this gp of ppl ba as the gov mention.... priv sector are paying much more and gov sectors are bleading good ppl to those priv sectors companies....
