Professions chosen by ex-Geppers

What are the professions chosen by these ex-gep children when they leave the "ivory tower"? Are most in the civil service or some other industries?

Just wondering out of curiosity what their preferred choices are. Anyone knows of any ex-geppers who are in the workforce now?

My relative just went to London to further his uni studies on A*Star scholarship. His interest is research. So guess he will serve his bonds as its researcher upon graduation.

How far back would you like to know? :P Those in my batch turn 31 this year. A good share are government scholars (all sorts, army and police, policy writers, researchers, teachers etc) and doctors. Couple lawyers. Some with better information and resources headed for the private sector at some point after graduation (consulting, banking). And of course a few oddballs :)

haha, nice to get it from the horse's mouth. So it's a safe bet to say most opted for the civil service? :smile:

My friend became an MOE scholar, then worked in MOE and now is a homemaker who groomed her kid to become top PSLE scorer at a SAP school.
