Congratulations: 7-Month Jobless Engineer Finally Found A Job In A US MNC!

Hi Gilbert
I would like to share a piece of good news with you: I’ve found employment recently and have started working after a long 7 months break.¬† Indeed, I am grateful for the kind¬† thoughtfulness and support that you¬†have been¬†providing for us!¬† I hope that your website will thrive to go a long way and continue to be a strong support platform for the unemployed PMETs.
My sincerest thanks also to Helen (volunteer career coach) for the support granted during this tough period. Yes, the break was in fact a longer one than the previous break.  The 7 months of unemployment was a stressful and straining period for me and my wife -  emotionally, mentally and financially.  Despite trying our best to think positively, our moods often fluctuate between optimism and pessimism, like that of a pendulum.  There were more dissapointments and rejections than I ever experienced.  But all that aside, I just want to thank my wife for everything during my down period. She is a good pillar whenever I needed someone close by for support.
Frankly speaking, I still have this fear¬†that history will repeat itself a few years down the road, although¬†I’m gainfully employed now.¬† As¬†I’m in the¬†engineering manufacturing¬†industry, it is one of the first to be¬†hit whenever there’s a crisis or recession.¬† However,¬†after this time round,¬†I have learnt to be more resilient and prepared should the worst come again.¬† Also, I am learning how to¬†face the storm¬†in a more positive light.
Last of all,¬†I got this job through the newspaper and I counted myself really lucky and blessed.¬†¬†I’m working for a US MNC and¬†am the only Singaporean among the¬†PRs¬†and ¬†foreigners in my department (ironic?). The pay is thankfully also higher than my previous job.
Thanks for being so kind and best to you always.
