The lighter side of career building -- our take. Let's talk fun stuff.

For those who are still here...with us, still reading this despite the many intricate things that have happened these past few months, you've all been very understanding over our rants and ramblings. It's about time we reward you with your patience and open mindedness. Are we implying freebies? Yes, but there's more to this than free stuff. Cobwebs are close to outnumbering tact-bits in this space, really -- we've been so busy raving about life and behold (a.k.a ego stroking), we've noticed just now. Dare we call ourselves blogging gurus! Nevertheless, we'd like to believe that you understand our penchant for being internal already. That is, after we've reasoned out our 'writing about learning over and over' stunt. So yes, this freebie post goes beyond the literal sense.

Much as we like to call ourselves 'perceptive' -- because writers are supposed to be better than anybody else in this department -- we admit to the fact that we have difficulty in decoding reactions from our followers sometimes. So we might as well do something today that will guarantee less violent reactions and more happiness. So here comes the promos! Let's take a break from all the career building, resume writing, learning in career, and job hunting today and talk fun stuff.

Err...somehow that doesn't sound right. Before we get things more confusing, what we're set to do today is update you with what's going on back at www.jobsdb.com.sg/Singapore. A lot has been going on and a lot of new things are to be released too. It really makes sense that we make this billboard performance NOW. Totally uncharacteristic of us what with our tight schedules, blogging beliefs and all, we admit; but well, there's nothing wrong with taking breaks once in a while, right (we're winking at you...again)?

October is a contest month for us and our editors! We've mentioned the Share your story of hope and courage...be an INSPIRATION promo on this blog (including our encouragement for you to join) already. Is your entry on its way to our mailbox? We'd like to believe that it is. We're little sunshines like that. Whether or not you've answered our pleads, thank you. We're still accepting stories! Here's the thing: not only will you get rewarded with cash, but also inspire people! Send it now. =)
