Tuition; there will still be a big demand for it. You'll need some level of qualifications however Emcee-ing. I've seen some friends host weddings for decent pocket money, but you need to have the gift of gab Ad-hoc sales jobs can be considered too, e.g. at IT show, where you just need to work for a few days

Here's an infographic from Seedly on how you can manage your income every month! Given that you're working full time while taking up a diploma course, you might not have time to take on additional part time jobs. So maybe you can consider other alternatives like dropshipping !

Hi, If you think you really cannot function and felt miserable, i think it is best for you to look for alternative job. If not, you will be dragging yourself to work everyday and no motivation at all. When look for others job, can always go to glassdoor to read some reviews on the company culture. All the best for you!

You're the person that can only answer this question! (sadly) Do you think you are enjoying the process? Are you doing this for long term? Is the reason starting this tutoring the same as the reason you are continuing it? You can always find money else where, but your fulfilment and happiness, I guess, is the main point of living. Hopefully this help. And I myself want to be a private tutor. And that's quite an impressive feat at your age. I would like to learn from you on how you started and such. Anyway, maybe take a breather and think about what you really wana do. Good luck on your future endeavours!

Hey! Education is the best investment, especially if you're starting late. There's tons of FIRE blogs are there, but if you're like most heartlanders in Singapore, with at least a 30 minute commute in the morning, i would suggest downloading the app Libby, where you can borrow ebooks from the National Library very user-friendly interface (wayyy better than the previous method of using Overdrive). My top recommendation is the following book available as an ebook via Libby Financial Freedom: A Proven Path To All The Money You Will Ever Need by Grant Sabatier. My personal review is that this book covers 95% of everything you need, including how to ask for a raise, how to start a side hustle, how to invest etc. If you need a great starting point, i think this is it. This was written by the blogger of millenialmoney.com and he also has a fairly informative podcast. Go check those out as well. I guess i will end with: for almost anything, the best time to start was yesterday. But the next best time is today. And you dont have to start perfect, or start 100%, you just have to start. And i think the above book will give you more than sufficient strategies/tactics to get started in 90% the right direction. Best of your luck.

Hi Anon, Our FA industry needs professional individuals. At least you mentioned "wish to make the transition when im able to make a stable income from it." It is important for everyone in the FA industry to be fully committed. The FA business is a results based business and there are a few revenue streams. I've this video that should help you. How much do financial advisors really earn? I Insider sharing Think through these two questions 1) What are your plans to commit time for training and developing skills and knowledge while being part time. Have a goal and a drive to accelerate it. 2) Do you have a foundation on doing marketing to individuals? If not what do you think is a possible solution to do well. Be hungry in learning and unafraid of rejection. Hope you've gotten some answers!

As a fresh graduate, you should be applying for full-time roles in industries and positions that have more potential to grow. You will have a better career path if you do well. Contract roles are good for switching into new areas and gaining experience. They pay better in the short term but lose out to higher paying growth full-time roles in the long term. In the long run, it's better to be in full-time roles, since the higher pay means more active income to invest in your portfolio. You can build a more permanent career path that way. Contract roles are the first to get cut when times are bad. They serve a purpose if you use them well but it's easy to get stuck and hard to get out of.

Hi Anon! As with any job search, the key is to differentiate yourself from the rest as the best candidate for the job in order to successfully secure it. It’s worth tackling this by distilling the job search process down to its different components. 1. Looking for the role / Receiving invites to interviews 2. Positioning yourself 3. Research 4. Interviewing Looking for the role / Receiving invites to interviews At this stage, there are some tips and tricks that you should be aware of. Namely, there are a number of online job portals out there that you can apply on. This includes: - LinkedIn - Glassdoor - Your university’s career portal - [email protected] (for roles within the SG Government) - Jobsbank - Etc You can also consider engaging a recruitment consultant to help you secure a role Positioning yourself Make sure you keep an updated LinkedIn career profile It is also important to review your resume and cover letter when applying. To maximise your chance of getting a callback, try customising your profile so that the person on the other end screening your resume can see your most relevant skills to the role and also that effort has been put into your application. Research Research is key at this stage as it not only allows you to adequately address any role or company specific questions thrown at you, but also allow you to understand if the company operations, job responsibilities, work environment, prospective manager and colleagues as well as culture suits what you are looking for. Conduct a Google search to understand the company’s operations and execution methods. Keep yourself abreast of the latest developments in the industry relating to the firm, and whether the firm has appeared in the news lately. Lastly, reach out to any friends or connections working in the firm to best understand its culture as this is not soemthing that can be evidenced from information presented online. Interviewing Dress appropriately and arrive ahead of schedule so that you have time to calm your nerves and also acclimatise yourself to the interview environment. Go prepared with a notebook and pen as it is important to note down any key information shared during the interview process which may not be available in the job description or anywhere else. Recommended starting pay Regarding your starting pay, this honestly depends on the level of the position you are interviewing for (senior roles generally get paid more), and the amount of supply vs demand of talent (e.g. scarcity of technical talent has driven up the price of talent in the market). However, as a rule of thumb, for a fresh business graduate from SUSS, you can expect to command a monthly salary of $3,200. Seedly has compiled this information here for your reference. All the best for your job hunt!
