Who do you blame if you cant find jobs? No one owns you a living.

The job market is competitive.

My journey as a job seeker comes with many rejections but I am fortunate to land up with this MNC ultimately. You need resilience and tenacity if you are facing unemployment, not crying out for companies to hire you.

With your response and attitude, you are not deserving to end up in a good company.
Lol, I am currently in a good company. Thanks for your 'concern'.

Don't regret. There are always 'if I knew this, if i knew that'. Even if you really gotten a poly dip, also won't guarantee work placement. It is the same for anything as long as you are in Singapore. lol. Just keep a positive attitude. Employers look for good attitudes not 'if I knew this' attitude.

Jobless for 6 months, 28 yo, single.
Frustrated daily. My routine now:
Morning 9am - go to hawker centre eat $3 fish all soup meal.
Go home sleep.
Afternoon, either eat or skip lunch.
Evening - eat dinner
Then sit in bed read random news
No interviews, recruiters call everyday.
Every interview would say promising or they took in another candidate instead
In the end nvr get

I see. Anw, I was also jobless for 5 months before, so I understand how you feel. You can exercise more, it really helps to lift your mood. When your mood is good, good things come to you. Besides applying through job portals, try all your contacts, ask friends, relatives for referral. You will definitely get a job soon. I wish you good luck.

Hi, I know said is easier than done but you still have to try to keep yourself busy. Try not to sleep too much cos this will cause depression. Try to read motivational articles or positive and inspiring articles. It is easy to slip into depression after all the rejections and no interviews.

Friend loss his job due to politicking by foreigners who come here on employment pass. They are his superiors. I wonít name the nationality but itís easy to guess - finance industry.
My friendís superior isnít v old about 31 but he has many years of exp considering that foreign guys donít spend 3 years of NS (2 years + 6-10 months of waiting for uni depending when you ord)...

He has said that it is grossly unfair that the entire supervising team is made up of foreigners. He has heard even one of them saying they want to wait for their PR and then later on become a citizen.

The singaporeans in my friendís team have all left as unable to stand their unsavoury character traits.
