Have you search for any jobs from ST Engineering? Under their land systems arm. You should be able to find some that is relevant to your field of study.

Just tell the interviewer. I only have a Dip but I intend to do a degree part time.

Having a job will give me an insight into how to blend theory and practice to become a better employee.

I am also happy to take an entry level position as I believe the best way to learn is starting at the bottom and also I am not afraid of hard work.

Good luck. Look forward to you getting the job so I can get the employee discount.

:D

learn from the foreigners


get any job available first then show your potential and what your can offer



dont restricts your capabilities , show them ,you have the drive and willingness to learn


no class 3, just say i am taking my practical test next month

get into the company first then iron out the little nitty gritty details such as class 3 licence


you lost half of the battle when you cant even muster up the confidence




still remember my first interview with #$=÷

the interview just ask me 1 question


give me 1 good reason why i should hire you.


give your self 10 reason why they should hire you and you should do fine




interviews is all about getting to know the candidate better and see how he can contribute to the business and if he's a team player

Always remember the object of the call is to get the interview and the only objective of the interview is to get the job.

When you get the call always get them excited so they want to hear more and then say maybe we can meet up so we can discuss more.

At the interview always remember that interviewer always have a bias and make up their minds in 30 seconds if they want to take you or not and you should exploit that bias.

Most important is identify the decison maker and find out what they are looking for in a candidate.

Some look for a can do attitude, some look for passion and enthusiasm, sadly 99% just look for a yes man who is not a threat to their job.

If they want a yes man with your zero working experience and no degree the job is yours.

Just pretend to be humble and don't let them know how smart you are. Asking advice on MCF no one can be smarter than getting pearls from the highest intellects in Singapore.

All the best I can smell fresh CSC6s on the way.

:D
