40-year-old jobless PMET with A level asks if he is too old to work?

Hi Gilbert,

Came across your website while searching for government subsidised courses…am desperate to seek your advice.

I was retrenched by my employer recently and have been trying to find a job since then but to no avail. I have tried to apply for all sorts of jobs including those that is not my line of work.

I was previously in the banking sector. But none of my applications seem to come back at all. For those that came back with an interview, after the interview, they said they required people with experience – which I do not have.

I have gone through job agencies, newspapers, online searches, heck I have even applied for part-time in Cold Storage…but still no news.

Is it because of my age? I am 40 this year – not much education, only ‘A’ levels. What can I do?

My savings are running out and I am at my wit’s end.
