Default Mother looking for a job

Hi

I have been working part time job (a few hrs a day, no cpf) for past three years due to family comittment. Prior to part time job, I have been working full time for 16 years. Recently I left part time job coz I completed my assignment.

I am 42 and have a degree. I am still open to doing part time job (admin), or even full day temp job(less demanding) so I can still handle my family.

But it seems tat all the salary stated is for entry level rate. And once they know my age, they r not keen to Wan to shortlist me. Even if they do, the job agent recommend a job no one wants to take, very far and low pay.

Other than keep trying for job, what tip do u have for me to gain a better edge?

As a non-local, I cannot tell if the posts about getting plastic surgery and wearing short skirts with a sexual appeal is serious, and whether this is normal for Singapore. I hope this isn't a reflection of work place culture and hiring practices in Singapore.

Not normal. Most Singaporeans are pretty suppressed in the real world from a young age: strict parents, strict teachers, school rules, for guys the compulsory military service at age 18, at work strict bosses, at home angry spouses. Thatís why many of them find relief in the online world by talking nonsense and trolling others.

Iím only half joking.

Unfortunately, I believe you have to temper your expectations since the jobs you are applying for are entry-level jobs. Look at it from an employer's perspective - why would I pay someone extra for their degree and 16 years of work experience when I can get cheaper labour elsewhere? You may, at most, only get a marginal increase.

As to your point on age discrimination: sadly that is a reality which you cannot avoid.
