In this city where you cannot go anyway without money, it is not surprising that students are sourcing for part time jobs to work during the vacation. Including me. After barely surviving on my savings which I accumulated during my NS stint, it is time for me to start working again to earn more pocket momey in order to survive for the coming year ahead.
E-mails sent to Rotarians, words of mouth spread to everyone I know, and sourcing the newspaper are the few avenues that I tried. Responds are optimistic and I hope that this will continues. There are many complains that jobs are hard to find nowadays. However, reports mentioned that there are many available jobs to be taken, yet no one is interested in taking them up. Employers also mentioned that employees are getting very fussy nowadays. Is it so difficult to get a job nowadays? Or it is that Singaporeans are becoming too fussy? Who is the real boss then, the employers or the employees?
I have some ‘job offers’ at the moment, and hopefully that I am able to clinch a good one. I confessed that I am rather fussy, but I think that at this point of time, I can’t afford to be now. Here I come, the Garden City that I live in, let this humble servant serves you and the citizens within!
