54-year-old retrenched woman looking for work to alleviate husband

Hi Gilbert,

I just get to know about your organization and website.

I thought of sharing my experience. I am a 54-year-old Singaporean with 2 kids and GCE ” O ” level.

I have been working in a US MNC company for 8 year plus and I have thought of working till my retirement age of 62 years old to help my husband to support my 2 girls to university.

A lot of companies wanted to cut cost and re-allocate to other country, my company also follow the trend and move out our whole finance dept to KL, so I was retrenched last year.

After I left the company, I have been looking for jobs but at my age of 54, I have never give up and send my job application to the agency and also go for a few interviews but so far there is no positive reply.

I am just worried that if I cannot get a job asap, my husband will be very tough to support the 2 kids, 2 old folks and me.

Understand you also will help those people to find job, appreciate if you can assist me.

    A minionster cried while giving his speech yesterday about the plight of unemployed PMETs unable to find jobs to feed the family. Is this for real? Or wayang only? Nobody knows. But there is one issue, there’s no safe guard at all to help the locals towards unfair discrimination. So TAFEP set up for what? Only guidelines but useless & nobody cares…

    If you are trying to help in the role as a bread winner in the family, I guess you got to grab any types of jobs first. The salary may be low but at least better than nothing else.
