Guys guys guys,

 

Despite what the Gahment says, take note that times are still bad and it's an employers market now.

 

Don't expect to get your dream job and dream pay.

 

If you're jobless, whatever comes your way should be considered a blessing (unless the pay is too unreasonble).

 

If you already have a job, HOLD ON to it. But you can search for another job. Just don't quit before you confirmed that next one.

 

 

Look at the reality of the situation now. What we hear abt times getting better is from the news. How true it is, we won't really know until a year ahead. As for those companies hiring or interviewing more, all I can say is.... WATCH OUT.

 

I've a friend that had been retrenched for a few months, just found this wonderful job with a good pay. He thought he was in luck. Within 2 to 3 months... this new company also retrenched him again.

 

Times are bad. Be prepared to work outside your desired job scope or line.

Don't understand you...

 

U had a job that payed well, though you did nothing significant, and you quit? :giddy:

 

 

If you had no job satisfaction, at least you could have secured another one before leaving, right? :sweat:

You see (apart from your marriage partner) job satisfaction can account to almost 90% of your life’s pleasure or misery.

 

So choose carefully your career/job and whom you give your heart to.

people want good pay and easy job, nowadays where got? also, the mode of employment is now contract unlike last time, cradle to grave. employ you is one thing, keeping you when the contract ends is another. lemon, ask you work NYE you quit? i work xmas eve(my wife birthday somemore), NYE, CNY eve and all holiday eves i also like that. when you are working, learn to give and take. (PS: they can sue you for damages in your statement on their products)

Nothing to lose.

Dam documents are getting thicker and thicker! :giddy:

True...but find the title a bit wrong.

 

Job trauma should be describing the traumas you suffer in the job.

 

Didnt think it should mean no job. :p
