UNISIM GRADUATE RETRENCHED 3 TIMES SINCE 2009, HOW DO I SURVIVE IN S’PORE?

I graduated in 2009 from UniSIM. Since then, I have been in 3 different jobs, each lasting about 1 year plus to 2 years. Each job ended in retrenchment, and now my resume looks horrible. Every interviewer asks why I do not stay long in the company, asks why every previous job retrenched me. My current job I took it desperately because I was out of job for 5 months (not long compared to others in your website). This is a totally new job scope different from my previous jobs.

Good Grades Not The Only Ticket To University

The flexibility of the selection process in SIM University (UniSIM) is constructive, and echoes the admission components of the newer universities (More Than Good Grades Needed For A Place At UniSIM, Jan. 6). It recognises that examination results per se do not necessarily reflect a student’s true quality and potential. While one might not be too enthusiastic about UniSIM’s “five Cs” model, for assessors run the risk of pigeon-holing applicants, the school’s four-step model does go beyond the traditional focus on grades.
