Jobless 31-year-old disappointed with WDA and looking abroad for work

Hi Gilbert,

I have been unemployed for the last 6 months. I was a contract worker, I have worked for many companies and most of the jobs have been government projects.

I’ve sought assistance from WDA and Lim Swee Say, but that proved to be pointless as it took them 6 months to finally find me a job that paid $1600 when my last drawn was $2500.

So I told them I’m very disappointed in them and that I didn’t need their “help” anymore.

I’m 31 Gilbert, I have never left the country long term.

I’d like to break free from this tiny rock before it’s too late to do so.

Help me get out, tell me what I need to do to be competitive overseas.
