I have to be honest with you as you are the 2nd person after my consult I am disclosing this so I appreciate your help and advice.

Hello Gilbert, I hope this mail finds you well. I am an avid admirer of the works you are doing and a regular reader of the posts on your website. Through the posts by your readers, I have seen numerous stories at which I empathise and some, I genuinely do not. Allow me to share a story of mine in which I hope to be an [...]
Hi Gilbert, I sincerely hope you could help me as I'm at wits end. I'm 48 now and been out of job since last August. Worse is my new house is coming and I am penniless. I've been trying to get a job and only a handful had requested me for an interview but eventually it's always they want younger staff or my salary is too high which is [...]
Hi Gilbert, My name is Leon. I have been retrenched last year since July 2015, and have since been looking out for job. I was doing some trading but it was not so consistent. As usual, the current market is tough, I have an interview tomorrow and hope I can get this job. I would like to receive your E-book, and would like to provide [...]
Dear Gilbert, Apology that I would have to seek for your advice for the below matters. As of November 2015 I started working at an MNC as an executive, in the beginning before the employment I highlighted that I was an N level certificate holder and currently perusing my diploma studies as I have problem understanding the final module and [...]
Hello, I've been reading up quite a lot on what I have to do, and I have been doing a lot of research online. I have even gone as far to consulting accounting services, and I have spoken to relevant authorities such as MOM, IRAS, etc., but I would still like to get some advice from here. I'm a European citizen and currently working overseas [...]
Dear Gilbert, I hope this email finds you well. I am seeking some advice from you. I have been unemployed for the last 2 years, doing mostly part time admin work. A search for a full time employment has not been successful. Most companies are looking for people with diplomas and I don't have one. I'm 35 years old, with a 'so-so' GCE O [...]
Singapore has absolutely no legal requirement for any company (including civil service) to provide for any retrenchment benefits. The Employment Act only states that workers are allowed to “request” for retrenchment benefits IF they have worked for at least 2 years at the company (previously was 3 years). BTW, even the above [...]
Dear Gilbert, I hope this finds you well. Firstly please accept my sincere thanks for making possible a website like "transitioning". It appears that you are the only website that offers support to the unemployed. I do not know how better to describe the quandary I am in other than I am trapped - viciously trapped in a vicious cycle that [...]
Let's just compare the cost of owning a vehicle, take for example a Honda Jazz. Assume you are 20 years old and u are intending to drive till 60, hence calculations are based on 40 years car ownership. In Singapore, a brand new jazz typically cost about $100K as of Jan 2016. OMV is $13k, so u get back approximately 10K (body+scrap value) at the [...]
