Unemployed ex-teacher job-searching fruitlessly for 1.5 years and feeling anxious

Hi Gilbert,

I chanced upon your website helping follow Singaporeans overcome employment issues. I have been seeking other forms of job opportunities after leaving the education sector for the past 1.5 years but nothing is fruitful.

It seems that we ex-teachers are only relevant in education sectors. I wondered if I could arrange an appointment with the career counsellor to have a better perspective of my current status and would really like to seek your assistance in my job search.

Best Regards,

Alice Lee
