live day by day for now.. stay home almost everyday. look at job portals everyday. stay positive lor.

where to find the part time jobs? job portals also? i have also applied for contract jobs to no avail though...
Have you try this job portal TalentTribe Asia, not so many Singaporeans know about this. I found my current job on this job portal, it may be an additional choice for you. Good luck

based on my own experiences, its a no,unless u change to a sector that is supposed to pay u a higher amt. this is becoz HR will cut your pay as much as they can.

eg: my pay at company A is 2.8k. at company B, i take a pay cut to get 2.5k. when i apply for job at company c, they willing to pay uo to 2.5k only. fyi, all in the same sectors. they can't dun offer more than their budget allowed. or just want to cut lah as i said. HR oso have kpi , which is to save cost for company

How’s a career in IFA feels like? I just quit the insurance industry. I am pretty sure you have some network and savings to depend upon right?
