If foreigners can convince employers they can do the job despite not being familiar with local operating environment while you can't then the problem is with YOU.

Took a part time degree for 4 years, lived off bursaries during that time. After that was jobless for a while then found a job in which I was retrenched after 8 months. Ever since I was retrenched, haven't done anything much. My XXX addiction just got worse and pretty much I just go to Jb and eat and just exist.

Somehow 1 year plus pass by just like that, didn't even do anything productive. Just watch anime, play switch and watch XXX. Pretty insane now that I think about it. Spent most of my savings just existing, friend was kind enough to lend me 5k but I really don't want to borrow any more.

I feel so disappointed in myself, let my weight go and I can't get a job. I've tried applying on jobstreets and other portal, I do get interviews once in a blue moon but it just does not work out. Mostly get calls from recruiters offering random jobs which I do offer and for some reason it does not progress either. I'm starting to feel very discouraged, parents are bitter that I'm not working. Started meeting friends lesser and despise people asking me what I'm doing. I really wish I can get out of this rut.

Anyone been in my situation, can give some advise? In summary 28 year old with a general part time degree from local Uni who's jobless in 14 months and can't find a job.

First ever reddit post I'm making so sorry if I'm not doing this correctly lol, just needed to reach out.

please lah. jhk come here to depress salary and work like dog because of 1:3.5 and they have no commitments or family in SG. how to compete? jhk are happy with 3k pay since it will be rm10.5k after conversion. Employers love them not because of their ability but because they are cheaper.

Get down from your ivory tower and stop talking like pap lah. You must be grassroot dog.

Very clearly the problem is YOU. If they can work more and you can't find any other reasons to compete for the job then YOU are the problem. Companies pay for value. Similar to consumers. Are you going to pay more for something just because the seller tells you he have higher commitments despite selling the same thing? You tell me. Stop being an entitled brat

Totally agree. No one owes u a living. Companies in general will weigh quality against cost to get the best value. If any Tom, dick or Harry can do the same job as you, the only thing u can compete with them in is cost.

Even worse if AI can do your job better than you. Just look at the paytm layoffs.

Cb. He say jhk come here depress salary is true what. Entitled simi lanjiao. Its pap fault for letting so much foreigners in. If they only let in low level foreigners who do jobs that Singaporeans don’t want then fine. But they also let in “higher educated” foreigners inside. Questionable degree comes to mind. Remember the Ultron degree Indian working for JP Morgan? Knn study in local Uni for what. They also let those JHK inside they will be biased against singaporeans and side their own. I personally seen it myself especially if JHK is your supervisor. And Paytm layoffs is more because they are not earning money, then use AI as an excuse to instill fear in the employees to not ask for raise while working like donkeys. I hope the companies you work for work you to your bones and tossed you out when you outlive your usefulness, then we see who is entitled.
