Dear A.S.S. Editor
I am writing to voice my displeasure over some civil service HR department to what I feel is a very discriminatory pra,ctice. This is about the hiring of fresh graduates. I notice that the HR of civil service are only really open to graduates that comes from the NUS and NTU.
I know that NUS and NTU are the crown jewel of the Singapore education system. But, for those students who did not make it to the top two local universities, we still try hard to earn that degree through sheer hard work. It does not mean that if our degree comes from a private university, or a foreign university, or even the other local universities , we are less capable. Maybe it took us a longer and different route to reach the degree path, but we study just as hard.
So why does the HR of civil service always assume that students not from NUS or NTU are not worthy? We must go the extra mile to convince the selectors that we are as smart, if not smarter than them. It is just my gut feel. What do you all think?
