Please do not give up, there are other money making opportunity outside as well.

We been trying to help out by sharing our e-commerce.

What if you can join a Korean e-business at $0 will you be interested?
It takes a while to see the earning coming in, but the business model will work eventually.

For a start, just convert your household products to their brands that's of a lower cost and higher quality products. And gradually you will see money rolling in daily.

Thanks for your kind words and offer

Sadly I shall have to pass on your offer for now

If I was physically fit enough to be a cleaner I would have become one long ago

Wink Advice

Hi all

I wanted to share my experiences to all who are in the same situation.

I am in my late 30s and have been out of job since Jan 2019 due to redundancy. I then took a break and did lots of travelling and only started actively jobhunting in Jun and had 20 different opportunities. For every interview, I put in a lot of effort and mostly were done online through video. For some reason, I had 0 offer out of all these interviews. My advice for anyone who is new to doing video interviews, pls do read up on tips and etiquette as i learnt it that way. It is very different and difficult to present yourself in front of a camera as compared to meeting someone in person as you can create an impression but on video you cannot even do that.

I had another trip in Dec and came back just before CNY and then covid hit. I still continued sending out applications untill our situation got worse. I definitely did not expect to land a job this period and also prepared myself mentally that this could last throughout this year.

To make it short, I just landed a job with a stat board. Totally did not expect myself to find a job during this difficult time. I have always been with the private sector so this will be new for me.

I totally understand how you all feel out there. It is normal to feel helpless, demoralised, worthless while you are unemployed. There will be days like that. Sports and exercise got me through as i had a routine that i looked forward to but things are different now during lockdown but pls keep yourself occupied with something you enjoy.

Keep sending applications. Jobhunting is a full time job. Try whatever sources and ways you think will work. I looked at indeed, jobstreet, linkedin, company job sites, reaching out to friends etc. If you do get shortlisted for an interview, put in 100% effort and do your best. Even if you don't get the job, you learn something out of it and better yourself for the next. Practise common interview qns till you can answer whenever you are asked the question.

Another tip is if you have friends who are in the same situation, be each other's support during this period. It helps to have someone to share and talk to.

I can say I worked my ass for the job I landed after 16 mths of being unemployed.

Indeed this is a difficult time and I wish everyone the best in job searching. Stay positive no matter how bleak the situation may be!

Thanks for your sharing. I'm very happy for you that you managed to get a job after such a long period of unemployment. I'm into 7 months now. Do you work from home as a start?
