hi there...

i heard that ntu engineering graduates gets most of the jobs in the market...
coz they have industrial attachments...
the companies seem to employ back those who underwent the industrial attachment...
so many of the nus engineering graduates get rejected....
is that true??????
anyone can clarify it?????

btw i am going to study electrical engineering...:)
if specifically...tell about electrical engineering...;)
thank u in advance....

The rates somehow makes you feel encouraged to do better and at the same time give you inspiration that anything may be possible.

Freshie!

Hi I was just wondering what made the difference between an NUS n NTU biz honours grad and also if it is a consistant thing over the few years or is this a one off thing in 2008 onli?

I'm also trying to find out which biz school is actually better.

Acct grads start off lower than their business counterparts coz most of them begin their careers at the big 4 where the offers are usually sub-2.5k.
