My ex-classmate from the Stat Board was worse! She has been a degree but jobless for more than 3 years as she was not able to use SAP or Oracle, commonly used in the market.
The reason of laid off could be either technology or communication/relationship issues in many cases e.g., this exclassmate. In our era, when we have an undergrad degree or postgrad degree and intelligence and oversaturated abundance of knowledge online and easily available library books and resources---what is a reasonable excuse for not learning a software?
Where is our self taught creativity and eager mentality?
Will we lazily deny a continuous trend on the red dot and the rest of the world as more upper and mid management have less power when they do not update and upgrade themselves!
Having a degree and experience without technical expertise will result in more Singaporeans 40-50's obsolete- a dinosaur! Do blame ourselves if we have this propensity to be laid off, sit and send resumes without results. And be accountable as a transparent individual- don't force govt or MNC to assume responsibility for our lacking skills!
I remembered seeing an online shot of PM using fingers pecking methodology on keyboard showing his determination to upgrade his skills to update his communication delivery system with his citizens. He has tenacity! He has perseverance! At his age he had never touched a PC in his schooling and working previous history, today he proves a faith to conquer a technical challenge made in the current era!
What a positive role model he is as a Singaporean-certainly his force is his worth to conquer his weaknesses!
Under his focused leadership, why are we so slow to emulate his confident attributes?
We should be capable to remove the boulder in our eye unless we prefer to leave the obstacle in our life unattended!

exactly! how could so many citizens be disillusioned without concrete reasons to be sure, yet aimlessly dream another team might deliver?
