Salaries for polytechnic graduates rise after remaining flat for 2 years




SINGAPORE - The salaries of polytechnic graduates have moved up after remaining flat for two years.

A graduate employment survey, conducted by the five polytechnics on the class of 2015, showed that those in full-time employment earned a gross monthly salary of about $2,100.

In the previous two years, the salary remained at $2,000.


The gross monthly salary of post-national service graduates in full-time jobs also went up by $100, moving to $2,500.


GRAPHIC: JOINT POLYTECHNIC GRADUATE EMPLOYMENT SURVEY 2015
The results released on Friday (Jan 8) showed that the overall employment rate for the class of 2015 remained high. It was a 88.9 per cent for fresh graduates, and 91.5 per cent for post-national service graduates.

But the proportion of those with full-time permanent jobs, though, fell from 59.4 per cent for the class of 2014 to 57.9 per cent for those graduating last year.

On the other hand, the proportion of graduates who take up part-time or temporary employment increased to 31 per cent compared to 29.8 per cent the year before.

The polytechnics said most of the graduates taking on part-time or temporary work said they were doing so because they were pursuing or preparing to commence further studies .

With the expansion of university places last year, among polytechnic graduates, 20 per cent of them won a place in a publicly-funded university this year.

A few years ago, the figure stood at about 15 per cent.

Most of the new varsity places were created by the expansion of SIM University and the Singapore Institute of Technology which were created to offer degree pathways for polytechnic graduates.

The survey also compared the pay levels of graduates across different courses. It found that fresh graduates taking courses such as built environment, engineering and maritime, and health sciences were the best-paid.

Fresh graduates from the health sciences courses, which include physio- and occupational therapy, earned median monthly salaries of $2,350

Re: Poly grads' starting pay rises after flat two years

That pay is just enough to survive. Don't be thinking of kids or a car. It ain't gonna happen, not in Singapore at least.

Re: Poly grads' starting pay rises after flat two years

From what i heard from my boss last time and what i heard from my friends who are aso boss/director themselves. There is really no such thing as market rate for salary. Its up to the company de, coz "You dont wan, there r still other willing to do". Like someone who just got a degree, then come asking for 3k and tell the boss its the market rate. Most likely, the boss would reject. Coz cert itself is nothing. Experience is more important. Like someone who just got a degree in HR, apply for a HR assistant job to gain experience, then ask for 3k coz he got the cert. My ex boss would tell him to look at the mirror. Actually, i would say its really "Heng Suay". The boss like u, he can give u a pay higher than ur expectation, increase ur pay just to make u stay. Boss dont like u, u work till die he also wont increase ur pay.

I know of a lot of couples who earn less than $5k combined, but still living comfortably. Definitely no car, but that's not a necessity. Their kids still get toys and they still go for overseas holidays. It's just a matter of how you manage your finances.

guess the reason why many people hop is also because they know that they can learn most of the things when they are young.
