Career Advice is not your average source of career-related information -- this section of sg.jobsdb.com also offers "novelty" career articles. But of course, their newness doesn't compromise their relevancy -- we just have to clear that out.
For today's discussion, we've resolved to feature five of such articles. If you're an avid visitor of sg.jobsdb.com/SG/EN/Search/NewAdvanceSearch, you've probably already read these. Still, show us support. We know you like reading us...we know you do. So, are you pen and notepad ready to keep up with the discussion?
