    I mean they are being paid heaps i reckon, working at paknsave is like $12 ph.
    as a student i once worked 3 days of traffic job, got paid $20 an hr
    Working at pak'n'save or a supermarket is cushy as.

    Paddlepop man jobs have basically no job security (once they clear the construction crap off the road you're not needed) and you have to stand out in the weather and risk being run over by dumb people. All on top of getting bored but not being able to escape to the toilet or wherever you want straight off.

    Actual tradesmen aren't really getting particularly overpaid, when you consider the overheads with car costs, tool costs etc.

    Sucks doesn't it.

    Been 18 months since I graduated, only earned about $15k in random jobs so far.

    I'm doing web/graphic design atm, and I'm probably not even earning as much as a supermarket job.

    What jobs are you looking for, systems admin, network engineer etc?

    I'm almost tempted just to get a help desk job for the time being...

    Well since I don't have any work experience so I've just been applying for some help desk jobs and customer contact center and shit like that and I get rejected every time... I've still got to sit my CCNA exam and I think even if I pass it, I still won't even find a job.
    I graduated in December and my mate who did the same course as me can't even find a job as well.

    I've decided to try playing WoW for the first time now lol.

    True I still haven't done my CCNA either, I'm thinking now is probably a good time to do it while I've got a decent amount of spare time.

    Hard times ay... Kinda makes me regret studying IT but hopefully it will pay off in the end.

    I haven't even graduated yet, and I've just been in Singapore for a couple of months on a summer work holiday with all expenses paid for... and if the recession doesn't kill off half of Singapore, I have a job waiting for me when I graduate.

    For those of you that can actually do something, I recommend actually doing something in your field and making some sort of portfolio, so that you can show a would-be employer. I worked with this guy for like 6 months (I was bored) and then he turned around and made a company.

    Without work experience, you need to start as low as you can, or make it yourself.

    lol i went to one of these once a couple years ago at uni. I only went because they were offering free booze and food, I don't have any finance qualifications.

    They were only offering like 2 grad jobs and there were about 100 or so people there. They basically said if you don't have straight A's you were a no show. Though **** working there, you are also expected to work from 7am to 11pm almost every day.

    I graduated with an accounting/marketing degree, and got a job at one of the big 4 accounting firms last year. I found it pretty easy tbh, however with the way things are atm, it will be much harder as they are only looking for people now who they think actually want to make a career out of working for them (ie. have genuine goals to be managers, directors, partners etc).

    Pretty glad I got out of uni when I did, otherwise I think I'd be ****ed as my goals are not to be a manager or partner at a big 4 accounting firm.
