I am an electrical engineer with a degree and 16 years' experience who started a new job in January 2016. Unfortunately, I was not a good fit for the specific role, which required mostly marketing and business development. My employer and I have parted ways in November last year. I have received two cash payments as a settlement, but I've been without a job since November. I am job hunting, and am also trying to get temporary contract work, but haven't been successful yet.
I need money to keep up with living expenses, mortgage repayments, my daughter's school fees until I land a permanent job.
