Stupidity is is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result.

When Lim Cheng Kee, 49, was laid off from her risk and compliance job at Deutsche Bank in August 2018 after more than 10 years in the industry, it was a blow that she did not see coming. Hers was one of the more than 7,000 roles that the German lender had cut worldwide. "Hiring and firing seems quite common in the banking world but I just didn't expect it to happen to me so fast," she tells The Business Times. "I knew that roles like operations, back office and IT jobs are being outsourced to lower-cost countries, but I didn't think that risk and compliance would be on the chopping block."

She was part of the global team and looked after the Asia Pacific region, talking to internal stakeholders and conducting records risk assessments to evaluate if they meet regulatory requirements, as well as implementing a risk and compliance framework.

Describing her previous role as particularly niche, she believes that is partly why she has not managed to secure a job since then. It is not a case of being picky: "I am open to all industries and have applied for risk and compliance roles, including financial compliance," she says.

More than one year on, Ms Lim is still taking on temp jobs such as book keeping - she is a trained accountant - and being a receptionist to keep busy.
