Dear Gilbert, I'm a father of three young kids and the sole breadwinner of the family as my wife is not working. Its quite tedious when you are the only one working and especially so when suddenly you go out of job. Wife has tried applying for jobs to co-support our family financially but in vain due to the fact that her last working [...]

Dear Mr Goh, I have to write to you again as my company, dr. CAFE Pte Ltd is as usual, delaying our salaries and CPF across the board beyond the accepted 7 days. This is the fifth time it has occurred without any penalty due to the government favouring employers and foreign investments. As everyone knows that this is the month of Ramadan, [...]
I don’t understand why everyone seems to be so in awe with joining a bank, even my undergrad niece insists she only wants to join the banking sector after school. Looks to me just a lot of smoke and mirrors about instant riches, trying to act socialite, spend to boast in front of others etc, but in the end 1% gets all the money and the rest [...]
Hi Gilbert Many thanks for setting up such a great website to assist those in need. As of date, my ex-husband has defaulted 6 months (from Jan to Jun 2014) of maintenance to our daughter ($350/month) and myself ($100/month) due to unpaid medical leave from a road traffic accident which I am unsure of how long his medical leave was. I [...]

Your website is not only a source of encouragement for those who are unemployed and their love ones and also serve as a warning of the things to come if we are not careful in planning our [...]
Hi Daniel, You need to wake up from dreamland and understand the job market in the banking industry. Every year, there are thousands of young graduates from NUS/NTU/SMU/Overseas Ivies in their 20s eagerly applying for these banking mid-office analyst type jobs you want. Less than 10% of them get it in the end. You already 42 years old [...]
Good morning Gilbert, I have applied many positions but only received one rejected reply. This job has the lowest salary and qualifications. Yet, I was rejected. All the jobs I applied are within the government. If MOM can't help much, I'm turning my direction towards the government. Our government encourages Singapore employers [...]
Hello Gilbert, Having read your post on a bad service encounter with Changi Airport, I am writing in to share my bad experience with one customer service counter in Terminal 2. It seems that Changi Airport does not give two hoots about customer service these days and complacency has already set it. I emailed them my complaint on the 28th [...]
46-year-old payroll professional jobless for a while, feeling suicidal and only received two interviews
Hi Gilbert, Sorry to bother you. But I really need to talk to one of your counsellors. I desperately need emotional support as I'm feeling very down right now. I'm having suicidal thoughts, even though I don't really have any burning financial issues at hand right now. While I can still survive on my own savings for a while, I can [...]
