According to the latest graduate employment survey recently released by SkillsFuture Singapore (SSG), about half of fresh graduates from Singapore’s private education institutions found full-time work within six months of completing their examinations.
Overall, 85.3 per cent of private university graduates found work, including part-time or freelance jobs.
However, the survey continued to find that job prospects for PEI graduates lag behind their peers from autonomous universities. The overall employment rate for fresh graduates from the 2021 cohort in autonomous universities was 94.4 per cent while the full-time permanent employment rate was 84 per cent.
The poll also showed that the median gross monthly salary of PEI fresh graduates in full-time jobs was $2,989.
