coming to 3 years soon of being jobless. i guess it's the end for me already. Got forced to resign by my ex company in late 2018. Jobless for 6 mths until a company poached me and got hired, thinking I was 'saved'. Company turned out to be a hellhole that I've seen newcomers walk out of the office 2 hours after they joined. Left after 3 months and have been jobless since. I took up some freelance and part-time in between but the money is good enough for my meals for a few months.

i try not to update my situation to my close friends cos everytime they ask about it, they would say 'try another industry, don't always apply to the same kind of job'. When you tell them you have tried other industries, they tell you 'you never apply enough'. I'd rather not say anything cos they have a job, they don't know what it's like to be jobless.

Who is also in the same boat as me?
Me too. ended up being a FL in sammyboy forum after jobless for 2 years. lucky I have a pretty face with big boobs.

Yeah thats good . dont tell your friends. Many of them "friends" give useless advice and want to compare or secretly see you suffer.

In my addition to my previous post, to say your friends do not know what it is like to be jobless is not accurate. People don't born to have a job waiting for them when they grow up. Sure they did experience a jobless gap before they land themselves in their current job.


To say they don't know how it is like to be jobless for soooo long like you and that is true.

So the qn is why are you jobless for soooooooooooo long ?

usually its a combination of self affliction and external situation. not one or the other exclusively.

being jobless in Singapore is quite common, Singaporeans are naturally weak in a lot of things. on top of that we have this sinkie pwn sinkie culture, no surprise we're always behind everyone in everything.

I feel you bro. I was jobless after graduating from uni in 2009, it took me a year to land a job after hundreds of resumes sent, 10-20 failed interviews. The worst interview that I had was when a guy asked me how many line of C codes that I wrote in my final year project. I was a little boy back then and said maybe hundred lines or something. Then he looked at my transcript and said ABAB somethings and said I lacked of perspective (to a little boy who was jobless for months). Not sure what was the reason, I saw a smile on his face, and he failed me later. But thanks to him, I know how fast I can type in programming language after that and been improving it. The "lack of perspective" part encouraged me tried more and failed more. I took my courage to hang out with friends during weekend and said I need help, any help would be appreciated. They gradually stop saying sh*t and started to help with information and encouragement. The first job that I had was from referral, not the best, but better than nothing. There is always a way out in life, I do hope the best for you.

This is really inspiring. People out there who is still whining and crying no jobs want them should learn from you.

All those jobless ppl out here reading your post should feel ashamed. There really is no excuse. The only excuse is the jobless person himself/herself.

As long as you are happy it doesn't matter desk bound or not.
