Dear Gilbert, It all happened in 2013 when my elder sister jointly applied for a flat with my nephew who has been unable to work for the last 4 years due to a traffic accident that occurred in 2010 and Comfort DelGro has since been deliberately delaying the Assessment of Damages through its lawyer ULA. This issue has been brought to MINLAW's [...]
by blessed23 » Sun, 05 Feb 2017 9:05 pm Hi Esteemed Members of Group, Greetings! Need your thoughts/advice. I am from India (based in Bangalore, India too) and have 6+ years of work experience in Web Analytics/Audience Development. I'm looking for a job in Singapore in the same division. I know the job situation is not so very [...]
Hi Gilbert Sorry for late reply, I'm always flying around. My last drawn pay was roughly 8,500 SGD per month prior to my resignation. I am humbled by the interest, and I note some of the comments too. I think many people are more focused on how I defined my seniority in terms of rank, and how my lifestyle was like, and totally missed the [...]
Hi Gilbert, Thank you so much for your reply. I would also like to thank you for the ebook. I have read it over the weekend. It did help me in terms of straightening my priorities right now. My mind was in such a constant blur. Though I am not done reading, I have implemented some suggestions. I made myself a vision board to [...]
Hi Gilbert, Thanks for giving me a listening ear. I agree that arbitration in workplace disputes should be done by an independent body, after all, it would ensure there are no interests, in areas where disputes may involve government-linked entities. One of my friends who faced discrimination during the early stage of her pregnancy has [...]
Dear Gilbert, My name is Alvin, I am 39 this year. It was my own fault for quitting my last job in the IT line. Although I am only 1.5 months out of a job, I am having anxiety attacks from joblessness. I went to seek help from a psychiatrist + IMH. Seems I've gotten much better after last Thursday (thanks for good energy). Gone are [...]
Dear Gilbert, I have just return from my maternity leave and was told by my boss that I will be handling more decision making work. I enquired about my appraisal report and bonus and she mentioned that it was submitted. However, on Monday when I went back to work I was informed by my HR manager that company is laying me off. I will be [...]
Dear Sirs, The following photo was taken at Bugis Village MacDonald which shows an abandoned 80-year-old Eurasian gentleman who introduced himself as Uncle Patrick de Souza. He relates that his house was repossessed by HDB in 1987 due to arrears and he has been homeless since, putting out at makeshift tents in Sungei Rd Market before its [...]
by ventolin » Sun, 22 Jan 2017 12:02 pm Hello So I've been working at NTU as an admin staff now for 2 months on an EP. But things just don't feel right for me. The job scope doesn't seem like a good fit for me and personally I am facing some struggles living in Singapore (I have never lived in a big city like this). I am thinking to resign [...]
Hi Melissa, I am in the exact same situation as you graduating in July 2016 with my PhD. Most of my job application sent out was met with no replies especially positions involving managerial roles (even assistant manager). I have landed a few interviews with companies on roles involving my major but with no replies. I do not know why [...]
