Well IMHO the market is picking up especially the electronic industry.

Look at the no of walk in interviews by companies like STATS, UTAC, STMicro, Chartered Semiconductor, TECH, AFPD, etc.

 

Things would be better once the Chinese New Year is over. Cheer up guys.

:goodluck:

Life short, play hard

You will be sorry when you see me.

 

Speed is not how fast you can go,

But how fast you can handle.

 

Ppl always think they\'re good but

It\'s others tat judge them not themselve.

Prefer school days where i can have long holidays rather than 14 days leave only...

You are wrong man. Now what they need is different compare to last time. They take time to choose the best person . Usually more than 1 interview sessions conducted to get the knowledge squeeze out of your brain. STATS done 4 steps of interview levels. :giddy:

 

Understand the fact that its not like before where u go in and get it. It you fight for it and sell yourselves to the market.

 

 

i regret leaving my highly paid job before before securing for one but not that much cause every steps there is lesson to learn.

 

Cheers

orders for the chips , and they are outsourced to other companies for testing etc.

Sigh... I hate this topic... Starting job hunting about late-mid-Oct. Not even a single interview... Luckily 2 weeks ago landed on a temp job else really eat-sit-mountain-empty liao...

 

Sometimes I really wonder if I made the right decision. If I was content and and not go for my studies... I could be doing pretty well with sufficient income to pamper my myself. And by now I would have good experience to "upgrade" my "career". Not like now as a graduate drawing only 2/3 of my previous diploma level pay and couldn't even get a single interview... Really miss the time when I had enough job offers to take my own pick...

 

What if I came back after my graduation and not go globetrottering for 3 months... Would I be in the same state now? Sigh...
