3E Accounting Does Not Discriminate Among Graduates
3E Accounting Pte. Ltd. was pleased to be mentioned in TODAY as a Singapore Firms that does not discriminate between AU or PEI graduates, on 8 April 2018.
TODAY 8 April 2018 write-up on “Lower pay, discrimination: Some of the hurdles facing private university grads”.
The issue was thrown into the spotlight again last week, when the latest Private Education Institute (PEI) Graduate Employment Survey found that only one in two (47.4 per cent) private school fresh graduates secured full-time jobs six months after graduation. This was a sharp decline from the six in 10 figure (60.1 per cent) for the previous batch. They also earned less, drawing a median gross monthly salary of S$2,650, while graduates from local autonomous universities (AU) raked in S$3,400.
Mr Lawrence Chai, managing director of 3E Accounting, told TODAY that his firm, which provides accounting, tax, immigration and compliance services, does not discriminate between AU or PEI graduates. It all boils down to the right attitude, soft skills, and the rest “can be trained” from scratch. Of his 20-member team, there is an equal proportion of PEI graduates and diploma holders (25 per cent), five per cent are from local universities, and nearly half hold professional certificates.
3E Accounting Pte. Ltd. wishes to thank TODAY for the mention and all staffs and clients for their tremendous support.
