Dear Gilbert, I am kind of tired of sending my resumes so I'll probably feel better emailing to you. As usual, same old story. Send so many applications but few replies. I think I would be lucky to receive 4 calls in a week but most of them are from recruitment agencies, which usually stands little chance. Its not that they don't want [...]

Hi Johnson, I have the same degree as you and I am also working in a different industry (IT) for more than 15 years. I too had a hard time finding jobs matching my educational degree after graduation due to the Asian Financial Crisis then. I was jobless since Jan 14 after I left a company where I joined for 8 months. I was recommended to [...]
Hi Elle, I was out of job for one year and recently had just found one. I count myself lucky for someone my age when there are so many younger foreigners out there competing. Singapore has got into the worst of its time since PM Lee Hsein Loong took over. The huge influx of FT has created a big problem for Singaporeans in the job [...]
