    • I'm surprise that it's difficult to get a job at 35 if one has the right attitude and the skill for the job. 

      My experience with local job applicants is that majority, irregardless of age tend to have poor work-attitude and irrational expectations.

    • It's not don't have. There are plenty of opportunities. It's just whether you want only.

      The pay may be low, but at least it's something, right? :)

      Recession is coming. If can find job, you are already very lucky. So, appreciate what you have. Good luck.

    • If need something temp to tide over, my company is hiring temp stackers or promoters at supermarkets. Got various locations, so can choose something more convenient for you. $60 for 8 hours (includes 1 hr break so technically only 7 hrs work but get paid for 8). Chiong for 10 or 14 days (Jan 2017, just before CNY) and you get $600-$840. Can sms for more info 82001613.

    • Mismatched expectations, lower one's expectations and you will see more doors open.

      Go for re-training and be open to mid career switch.
