My name is Gerald. I am a 41-year-old Singaporean and have been jobless since December 2014.
I have also just graduated from my Bachelors in Business studies.
I have approached a few head hunters who have told me upfront that I am too old. I have even approached CDC but the lady whom I am assigned to help me find a job says she can’t help me because there are no vacancies on her list.
I have applied hundreds of jobs in Job banks, job street, careers at gov, etc, all of which till today no reply at all.
I am looking for an admin job as I specialise in that and have more than 10 years experience in it. I am also open to new jobs and skills.
I was with the SAF since I finished my O levels in 1992 and 17 years later, I came out in 2009.
Since then finding a job was tough as I had only O levels.
I went on to do a diploma, advanced diploma and now a degree so that I can stay relevant in the market, all using my own savings but unfortunately till today, my diploma, advanced diploma have not found me a job.
Most of the jobs I had in the past were recommended by friends of friends and they were all part-time or short contract.
Please advise me. Thank you.
PS: Enclosed is my resume.
