In the same position as you now. I am starting to freak out man. I am thinking how TS could survive during this 1 year with house loan repay.  And i felt like already year end, kinda hard to land a job. Need to add more extra effort searching for it.

I reject 2 interview invitations so far:

1. System Engineer at a Pasir Gudang Factory at RM5K MAX
2. System Engineer at a PJ IT company, 12Hr Shift work at RM5.3K MAX +300 shift allowance

is this considered asking quite high?

1. System Engineer at a Pasir Gudang Factory at RM5K MAX >>> pasir gudang that far? If you are staying in KL
2. System Engineer at a PJ IT company, 12Hr Shift work at RM5.3K MAX +300 shift allowance > long working hour lol but high salary

anyway you may get some part time at the moment, at least got some income. Just like i will get some part time job, in case one day i no longer in my full time job i still got part time to tahan

I don't think is normal. How did you pay your commitments and expenses during that 1 year?

Your server cert is 15 years old! My god, so much has changed from server 2003 to server 2016! Or maybe 2019. As a Microsoft man u should also know AD, mail server, file server, etc..... U should also familiarize yourself by with VM technology, cloud , etc....

Sorry to say that future don't look very bright for u. U can only function in those Chinaman companies who never bother to upgrade their hardware and server for a very long time.

TS jobless for 1 year mind as well do some upskilling courses in IT.

I know one guy after his divorce he was heavily indebted due to his house, so he decided to upskill by taking more IT courses. It worked well for him.

30 yo still young...TS should not give up, beautify your CV of course don't lie lah.

Well. I'm about to enter 1 year of unemployment as well. Luckily I'm still a single man. So I just do part time drive Grab and in the mean time I try to pick up new things, going to classes, online courses, etc. Because I wanted a career change. But finding it difficult in Malaysia as almost every job wants to see your certification in that particular field.
