In response to the post, members from the online community expressed their varying opinions on the group’s endeavour. A few questioned if people were allowed to do activities like canvassing in public, given Singapore was still in phase 2 of exiting the Circuit Breaker period.

Others admitted that there was no such thing as a dream job. “There is nothing called a dream job,” commented Facebook user Choong Chiong Siong. “It is what kind of job you are good at, willing to work hard for and learn; not a dream and don’t do.”

For those who are planning on engaging in such initiatives, members of the public advised them to be cautious. “Hello, don’t be stupid and kena trap,” said an individual. “They paid you free S$2, later you get caught and summon will be worse. Think twice before you do. Be smart,” advised the netizen.

Still, some agreed that “Singapore needed more of these kinds of awareness.” The netizens called the group brave for speaking up about this particular topic.
