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.

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?

Unregistered 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.

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 ?

In fact, the program give you the opportunity to show your worth to the company you are attached to. It is an opportunity, not an entitlement to iron rice bowl. You need to work on your mindset. Negative people are just wasting the opportunity because they think it is their entitlement
He sounds like an ungrateful brat, takes all the money already then throws tantrums and complains the program is useless.... Typical Singaporean behavior, only knows how to complain.
