Thank you for the e-book. Just a bit on my background.
I graduated from NTU in 2008 with a second class lower in material science and engineering and was very active in school activity.
I started working in a MNC as a contract worker and later a permanent staff till I was retrenched in mid-2011.
Joined a start-up in hope of making it big immediately after retrenchment.
But business was deemed not viable and making losses after one year.
During my one month notice period given by the company, I went to serve NS – my eighth reservist cycle.
I had an interview at MOE to be a teacher immediately after my reservist duty and I thought I had a good chance to be a teacher.
It has been 45 days since I worked and I noticed changes in myself – changes that are not good to me and everyone around.
Getting a little depressed over the lack of interviews despite the amount of applications I sent out.
Becoming more moody and at the lowest point was the rejection from MOE to be a teacher three weeks after the interview.
I realise I am going to have to do something/anything to break the rut and I saw your name and website pop up several time at EDMW.
Finance wise, I have enough reserve to get through at least for one more year but emotionally I dont’ know really.
Its difficult to manage thsoe negative thoughts that assaulted the mind daily when you are jobless.
I am sorry that I am unable to go for the networking session today. I guess I can’t face up to the rest of the participants yet.
For a better tomorrow.
PS: Please hide my name and email iaddress f you are going to use any of the information above.
