More fresh university graduates find full-time jobs

More university graduates secured full-time jobs last year as Singapore’s economy grew and recovered from a recession brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic, writes Amelia Teng for The Straits Times.

Results from the latest graduate employment survey showed that 84% of fresh graduates in the labour force were in full-time permanent roles, compared with 69.8% in 2020.

Overall employment rates and salaries among those who graduated from universities last year also both inched up, according to the poll results released on Wednesday 16 February. The median gross monthly salary among graduates in full-time permanent jobs climbed from SG$3,700 (US$2,700) in 2020 to SG$3,800 last year. The figure was SG$3,600 in 2019.
