I am 54 years old and I am the sole breadwinner for a family of 3, just a couple of months ago I was hit by a 30% pay cut with an additional sales responsibility to achieve monthly sales target, the loss of income impacted my family badly, out of sudden we face difficulties in paying up for our expenses, we have to terminate some insurance as we are no longer able to afford.
I tried looking for a relevant job replacement and went for a couple of interviews, however, I was not offered any job, I called the interviewers to follow up and was told “You are overqualified for this job” or “Aren’t you are planning for your retirement soon?”
I am a Technology Crimes Investigator working in a private company and responsible for digital forensics investigation, fraud, and cyber incidents investigation. All the while I thought I have a stable career especially involving in cyber crimes investigation but I was wrong, my age puts a barrel for a new job offer.
I have been doing investigation work for 30 years and I am able to share my knowledge and experiences by conducting affordable training and workshops to benefit others
I need to continue working in order to feed my family and I am seeking for help to raise funds to make this campaign possible, these funds will be used to kick start some training sessions. I hope to raise SGD$10,000 for paying training room rental, marketing, and printing materials.
