A decade or so ago, a degree guaranteed you a comfortable life and a secure job; nowadays, you are not the only one with a degree or even a master’s in a very competitive job market. Certain degrees open more doors to a stable and decent paying job, if not a lucrative one.
Here are the top degrees to consider that provide you with an opportunity to get a high salaried occupation.
Degree in Finance, Business or Any Related Programs
Finance-related degrees in Singapore have high value because of the country’s position as a financial hub. Competition is stiff in this industry as you are competing against other job seekers from all over the world. However, the income potential is high as you may make anywhere between $5000 to up to or even more than $10000 monthly. To grab the attention of a potential employer, get certifications or even a master’s in a specialised field.
Degree in Healthcare Related Programs
If you want to become a doctor, nurse, dentist or any other profession in the healthcare industry, you will have the opportunity to make up to $21000, depending on your specialisation and experience. This industry does not have the similar level of competition that the finance sector is facing, with plenty of jobs for those that are willing to get them.
Degree in Technology
A degree in the field of technology is in high demand and rewards one handsomely as well. Singapore’s place as a global hub provides those with expertise, knowledge and experience, in information technology plenty of opportunities in IT security, computer networks, databases and other related fields. Salaries range from $4000 to as high as $9000 monthly in addition to benefits packages and potential for job growth and long-term tenure.
These are some of the degrees to consider if you want a job that has high earning potential and growth. However, these vary in terms of demand and level of competition; factor these in before you decide what degree to get.
