    I hate my job. Should i quit now?

    I have been in engineering industry for many years, but recently the work scope is becoming unbearable. I used to love getting my hands dirty and getting things done, but after promoting to my current position, i now have to face many problems. Nowadays i cannot sleep properly, stressing about work. As i am debt free, I am thinking whether i should quit and move into another industry and start all over again.
  2. https://mothership.sg/2020/08/singaporean-fresh-grad-funeral-parlour/ What it's like for a S'porean fresh grad, 22, who found herself working for a funeral parlour PERSPECTIVE: It is a tough market for job seekers in Singapore, as many companies have implemented hiring freeze policies, amid the current Covid-19 pandemic. Natasha Wee, a recent graduate from Nanyang Technological University (NTU), spoke to Mothership about how she landed a job as a funeral director assistant, and how she values the unexpected opportunity that she was given to work in an industry that is far from a conventional one. Wee has been working at Harmony Funeral Care since July, 2020.

  4. Nissan might be asking more than 10,000 employees to leave. This comes after the company projects its profit to fall further for 2019. As reported by Kyodo News, sources from the company told the new agency that the news of the job cuts will come when it releases its April-June earnings figures as nett profits hit a nine-year low going into March. Jobs which will be cut are expected to mostly come from factories in regions with low utilisation rates and through early retirement options. Nissan only planned to axe around 4,800 employees back in May but the numbers has grown by quite a bit since then. If the numbers turn out true, he move will see the company reducing its overall global workforce by around 7% The report also suggested that it may also streamline output in its domestic market as Nissan saw its global vehicle sales fall 4.4% to 5.52 million units in fiscal 2018. The company reckons things will be worse as sales is projected to be nearly halved for the 2019 financial year.

    2018! Are we in recession?

    I guess a staple topic for every new year. How's everyone 2018 so far? Good increment? Good bonus? Good employment opportunities? What do u think 2018 will turn out to be in terms of both financial & political progress?

  7. Why all those who quit are normally good employees? Here’s 8 reasons why! It is not all difficult to retain a good, hard-working employee in Singapore. The Lion City has an excellent working environment, salary packages are attractive and rank high up in Asia. But just why big companies will often force employees out of the door? Just why good employees leave? Well, because they simply know their talent can be realized somewhere else. If companies can’t provide a harmonious workplace, it won’t be hard to see why they can’t hold on to the talented employees. A consultancy report from CEB said that usually 33% of top-ranked employees normally have this conflict with their employers and would have started seeking for greener pastures just few weeks into their job! Once a company loses the heart of their top-ranked employees, the group will not just choose to say I QUIT! They will also lose interest in their job. Mr Michael E. Kibler from Corporate Balance Concepts INC, an employee coaching firm, has been researching why employees quit their companies. He attributes this to “executive brownout”. To put it simply, no battery already! Staff affected by this phenomenon become disengaged, demotivated and lose interest in their jobs. The more usual symptoms will be disengagement, discontent and lethargy. On the surface, their job performance is not bad, but they are secretly going downhill, and the exit door is where they are headed. Companies who want to avoid this from happening can try to avoid these 8 workplace practices, which normally get under the skin of top-rated employees. #1. Don’t put up too much rules Yes. Simple as that. Don’t make it like a school, where there are even restrictions on meal times and toilet breaks. Employees feel restrained simply by that and the doubts will start to creep in. All are working professionals, not little children! #2. All are equal In the eyes of the law, all are equal. But it shouldn’t be the same at a workplace. The elite will feel left out should the boss treat all equally. They will think that all the rewards and benefits they deserve aren’t any different from those who have poor work performance. #3. Enduring poor work performance If a company doesn’t act in helping an employee snap out from poor performance, such as sending him for courses, he will soon drag down the whole organization. The company got to solve this problem fast and not act blur. #4. Non acknowledgment of the talented ones Who doesn’t like to be recognized for the hard work put in? It is just like the Employee of the Month plaque you see in fast food restaurants. Seriously, this is the best thing a company can do if they are already not handing out 13th month bonus! #5. Show some love, lah! A relationship between company and employee is like watering a plant. If you don’t give it TLC (Tender, Love, Care), how do you expect it to grow. You must show care and concern for your employee! Remember, they are not robots! They are made of flesh and blood! #6. Future When distributing work, give them a perspective on how this will help in their career advancement. Don’t just simply shove them work and give them deadline! #7. Let them pursue other interests! Google normally gives out 20% of an employee’s worktime to let them pursue their own interest, and this should be of beneficial value to the company. It is vital as employees will enter a FLOW mentality. It is one that allows employees to enjoy their work, and expand their capability. #8. Make the workplace interesting If employees can’t enjoy sticking around a workplace, the company really got to start thinking. Ever heard of the saying, all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy? Go Google HQ find out, look into their HQ, see how fun it is to work there! To sum it up, a good company shouldn’t be sending out terse notices all the time. They should learn to mix heavy work with great fun. That is the ultimate recipe to a conducive work environment.
  8. Dear forumers, I am planning to resign from my current company soon. I intend to offset my earned leave (30 days) to offset against my notice period of one month. This is allowed under MOM's rules; however, I don't get paid for my leave, and I can immediately start work with my new employer on the next day. I have sought advice from many friends; some say serve your notice, some say use your leave to offset. I have a very tense relationship with my manager and I don't wish to serve the notice period; indirectly, by using my leave to offset, I am working for the company for free for one month, by not cashing in my leave if I serve the notice period. What would you do? Thanks.

    How to move to public sector?

    I am contemplating a move into the public sector so I had a good look at careers@gov All my friends are in the private sector so I have no one who can help me with the questions that I have. Short summary about me: - mid 30s - so about 10 years working experience - poor honors degree in engineering (NUS) 1) Is it easy to move to public sector (considering my degree is just 3rd class)? Do they usually reserve the vacancies for people who have previously worked in the public sector? 2) I am confused by the job titles. How do I know what is suitable for me? Manager, assistant manager, deputy director....I don't want to appear a fool to apply for a wrong position. There is so much variation in the title. 3) And salary. how do I know what salary does a manager or AM or DD get?
  10. was flipping the papers over the weekend. forgot to bring the papers to take a clearer pic. but this is what i found online. Among his list of to-dos: Strengthen social safety nets beyond home ownership and Workfare 1) do more to strengthen social safety nets, not only with the new MediShield Life universal insurance to come, but also to improve key retirement schemes in the CPF savings and CPF Life annuity 2) Make Singapore a Smart Nation with safer, cleaner and greener urban living and measures such as increasing transport options 3) Keep politics constructive, encouraging debate on issues, while ensuring people remain united 4) Improve CPF savings and CPF Life annuity schemes for retirement 5) Reform PSLE, so that no single point will determine a person's future. Boost continuing education for adults 6) Develop new housing options to encourage extended families to live closer together When i was reading it, i was thinking, aren't these his basic JD? and that of his whole team of ministers? as in, to craft policies and make sure that Singaporean's well-being are taken care of? then WTF have they been working based on in the past 20 years?!? any brudders who subscribe to ST? can help with the screen shot? else gotta wait till i get home to post the clearer pic.
  11. Understand there are quite a few old birds in MCF, will be grateful if anyone can shed some light on this situation. Facing some employment crisis... A bit of my background, I graduated from a local university with an engineering degree a few years back. My GPA wasn't the best, but it was good enough for a first class honors and was in top 10% of the cohort. From there, I went on to work at a SME providing engineering services (basically, big companies outsource their engineering design needs to us), while doing a part time PhD at the same local university. Within 3.5 years, I ticked all the KPIs required for graduation and submitted my thesis. Reviews for my thesis were extremely positive and I was then able to graduate. This was by no means an easy feat because most full time students struggle to even produce a proper thesis in 4 years. I reckon that credit should also be given to the massive support I got from my professors at school and my ex-bosses at work. Upon graduation, I moved on to another company. Salary isn't high, but I really wasn't expecting too much considering that I was "new" in their domain- Same type of work, but in a different domain. In layman terms, it will be equal to domestic helper cleaning home vs. hotel chambermaid cleaning hotel rooms. Things were fine in the beginning, mostly because I lacked the knowledge in the new industry and also their business processes. Aong the way, I learned and learned, and eventually got the hang of things after a few months. Herein, the problem set in. Being a new guy, I was always assigned to some "senior" staffs under a couple of new area projects, playing the role of "assistant", which I am perfectly fine with. I do not mind being a follower, if the project leader is capable of teaching me something. However, in this cases, the project leaders knew nothing about the domain, nor the process. It was actually their first time running such projects too. What this effectively meant was that I was doing all the leg work, mind work and practically everything, while not a single credit was given. When things were not perfect, I had to take the blame because it was my work. When things were great, suddenly I was forgotten. At the same time, my company started looking at restructuring and I couldn't be sure when it will be my turn. Dejected, I started looking for opportunities outside. Despite numerous attempts at dropping resume and cover letters, I just couldn't find another job. After 5 months of job seeking, I got interviews with three companies. Weirdly, all gave the same conclusion, " We like you a lot, but your area of expertise...". This is despite my attempts at making clear that I was willing to learn and am a quick learner. I am wondering what exactly is my problem in preventing me from moving on or getting a chance for an interview. Is it the advance engineering degree? Or my current over-inflated job title? Or do I give off the vibe that I am expensive to hire? What will you do if you were in my shoe? *Disclaimer, I am really cheap to hire. My peers, who started PhD together with me and graduated 1 year later (Remember...I took 3.5 years...most full time were taking 4.5 to 5 years), are easily drawing 10-30% more than me even without work experience.

    Linking up to Headhunter

    Hi I'm planning to switch job/company in 2016. I have already submitted my CV to some headhunters quite some time ago. I know some roles are only given to headhunters before being posted online in website. But now there are so many headhunters out there (just search in Google or LinkedIn), so how should I proceed? 1) Contact each & every headhunter company to link myself up with them? 2) Go to my LinkedIn contacts and drop a message to all those who are headhunters to let them know I'm on the lookout? 3) Update my CV in LinkedIn and wait indefinitely for someone to contact me? 4) Any other subtle approaches? - Not possible to put a "on the lookout" message on my LinkedIn profile because my boss is in my LinkedIn contacts and he can see !! - I do not wish to contact fellow peers to help me refer/link up because they could also be my competitors for the vacancies Appreciate some useful advice please ....

    Dear Mr Prime Minister

    Saw this posting on FB. since the company name was mentioned, i think it should not be untrue. ========================================================================================================= Dear Mr Prime Minister, My name is Delwyn Yee Zheng Ting, aged 21 and I wish to discuss a very dire issue regarding my father Dallas Yee Kok Keong aged 48. My father is a very hardworking man who was working for Jaguar Landrover as a manager and was forced to resign by his superior who is a Canadian. This particular superior was a bully. He draws a high salary and would always push all the work to my father who was already very busy but my father was way too good a person to make a fuss with him. His immediate superior drew a high salary but was not able to perform. He even asked my father how to do excel spread sheet and power point. How is this person a foreign “talent”? To me he is just another bad person making use of my dad! My father tried his best to inform the higher authority about this issue but it didn’t work. This was because the top management were all Westerners. Many of the managers from the company resigned, leaving only my father who still turned up for work faithfully everyday. 3 months ago, my father was called up by his Canadian boss and was told that my father had to either resign or be sacked by the company. The reason he gave was they thought my father would also resign like the rest of the managers. They told my father that the company had already employed someone else to replace him. This was even before my father’s resignation. My father had never thought of resigning. But his Westerner boss and superiors, thinking that he might be a threat to the company, forced him to resign. My father had no choice but to resign and was told to leave the company immediately. My father was a very good manager who was well liked by his staff. He had worked in the company for 6 years and his performance was always good. But he was forced to resign because his Canadian superior was not happy with him for no reason. His performance appraisal for the past 6 years in the company had been good. His customers were also happy with him. But he was forced to leave the company because these foreigners came to work in Singapore bullied my father. Thankfully, my father, having a good reputation in the industry, was immediately approached by Jaguar in the Philippines. He had to accept the position because he had no choice. He left with my younger brother and sister and my step mother. I am now studying in Poly and cannot go with him. Now I am living alone in Singapore with my family so far away. Is this fair? Is this fair to me or my dad? I really hope that you can come up with something to bring justice. Why are so many foreign talents allowed to work in Singapore even when they didn’t have the necessary skills? My father told me that his Canadian superior’s salary was so high that the company could use the money to employ 3 managers like my father. Shouldn’t Singaporeans be given the job? Or are the Singaporeans so incapable that we need to hire these foreign talents to come and bully my father. I know foreign talents are important. But my father is also a talent. He has 30 years of experience in the industry and has been hard working. Why should he lose his job for no good reasons and now have to leave Singapore to work in the Philippines? Please understand that I miss my father and my siblings. I am now all alone in Singapore. The foreign talents came in to Singapore and now Singapore talents have to leave and families break up. Is this what Singapore should become? Thank you for listening to me. http://therealsingapore.com/content/young-singaporean-pm-lee-please-stop-bringing-anymore-foreign-talents

    $5,000 Job, you want ?

    How come no one want a $5k job?! Looks like our youngsters nowadays don't want to work hard! If it's easy money come, meaning it's money go away. We must learn that as long as we work hard and it's a decent job, that's nothing to be ashamed of!
  23. http://sg.finance.yahoo.com/news/know-time-leave-job-145135072.html How to Know It's Time to Leave Your Job By Alison Green | U.S.News & World Report LP – Wed, Feb 12, 2014 10:51 PM The job market has been tough for so long that it's easy to think that if you have a job, you should stay in it for as long as possible -- but that mindset isn't always right. Too many people stay in their jobs well beyond when they should, and that ends up holding them back in their careers and breeding unhappiness. Here are eight signs that it's time to think about moving on from your job. 1. You've been unhappy for months. Everyone goes through periods of discontent at work now and then, but if you've dreaded going to work for months and get anxious just thinking about your office, that's a sign that you should be looking at alternatives. 2. You haven't had a raise in three years. Not every company does annual raises anymore, and the economy has meant that some companies have frozen pay across the board. But after years of no pay increase, it's worth looking around at what other companies might offer you. (Make sure you've asked for a raise first though; if you haven't made the case for increased pay, leaving over the lack of it would be premature.) 3. Your boss hates you. Even if you like your work, having a boss who dislikes you usually means that you'd be better off moving on. Managers have an enormous amount of control over your career -- from what projects you get to what growth opportunities and recognition you're given. A boss who dislikes you can hold you back and have a long-term impact on your career. You're far better off working for someone who will champion you than thwart you. 4. When you tell your family and friends about your workplace, they're horrified. When you've been in a toxic and dysfunctional workplace for a long time, you can lose sight of how bad it is and it can even start to feel normal. If this has happened to you, it's a sign to get out. If you don't, you risk internalizing that dysfunction and taking bad habits with you to future jobs. 5. You can't remember the last time you felt challenged in your work. Sure, some people are happy to stay at a job that simply pays the bills. But if you're someone who wants to grow professionally and personally, then staying in a job that hasn't challenged you in a long time doesn't align with those plans. (This doesn't mean that you should leave at the first sign of boredom. Rather, this is about prolonged periods where you feel like you're stagnating and where you see no change in sight.) 6. You're receiving a lot more critical feedback in writing. If you're suddenly getting a slew of critical feedback in emails or memos, it's a sign your job could be in jeopardy. Many companies require written documentation of problems and warnings before an employee is let go, so a sudden increase of written feedback (when you didn't used to receive any) can be a sign that your boss is creating a paper trail to build a case for firing you. 7. You're on a formal performance improvement plan (PIP). PIPs are often the last thing that happens before you're fired. In theory, if you meet the terms of the plan, you'll preserve your job and be able to move forward. But in practice, by the time you're on one, it's often because things aren't working out and aren't likely to. That doesn't mean that PIPs never end in success; sometimes they do. But since they so often don't, it's smart to be job-searching meanwhile. 8. Your boss tells you. If your boss says things like, "I need to see significant improvement" or "this could get you fired," she's not kidding. Too often, people hear feedback like this but don't believe they would really be let go -- and then are shocked when they're suddenly out of a job. If your boss is telling you directly that things are serious, believe it -- and start job searching.
