Various seminars on entrepreneurship in Singapore always look down on MBA and degree. The focus is on challenging yourselves and make money as much as you can without having to care about your background.

On the other hand, the corporate world seems to still stay at the MBA mindset. Most companies seem to rely heavily on the MBA graduates. Almost all giant corporations have training/ recruitment programme for MBA graduates. Not many openings seem to exist for engineer with so-so engineering skill.

No wonder many seem to end up in insurance, wishing to make quick bucks. :(

Unfortunately, not many seem to realize that insurance market in Singapore is already quite saturated. In bukit batok MRT for example, there is this favourite spot for insurance agency. Last month I saw Prudential, last week I saw AIA, this week another company. All use the same position and the same type of table and chairs. Amazing! Haha...
