Employment prospects are improving for Singapore’s polytechnic graduates.
According to the latest graduate employment survey, last year, 89.5 per cent of fresh polytechnic graduates found permanent, freelance or part-time jobs last year within six months of graduation.
The proportion of graduates who were unemployed and still looking for a job fell from 9.7 per cent in 2017 to 8.2 per cent last year.
The median monthly salary for polytechnic graduates who landed full-time jobs also rose from $2,235 in 2017 to $2,350 last year.
The survey was conducted by the five Singapore polytechnics.
The survey polled 9,330 out of 12,443 fresh graduates from November to December last year.
