A "good" news for fresh grads and fresh grads akan datang.
Just by graduating with a degree almost guarantees you a decent paying job.
Even if you don't have a degree, you can still get a job, just lower pay and lower prospect.
CGPA >3.0 gets you to the big MNCs with better pay.
Most companies implement hiring freeze and WFM(Work Force Management @ layoff @ goreng sotong). The lower end and least important jobs are on the frontline of impact. Fresh grads basically have little to no hope of getting a job.
After June 2009:
Hiring begin to start again, after the restructuring are done, however, now, even the lousiest of companies have a requirement of at least CGPA 3.0; if your CGPA is below 3.0, you basically stay home and sleep out this downturn..
So if you kids out there think you can just fool around thru your college/uni, you're so gonna regret it...
Welcome to the world~
