A new job

So I have a change of work place. Now I work in a company that’s focused on delivering advertisements in videos through prerolls — Tremor Video. My role will involve JavaScript, CSS and HTML, mainly implementing user interfaces. There’s a bit of Java too where I tend to frown.

The new company is located in between Dhoby Ghaut and Bugis MRT Stations and this brought me back to the city. There’re so much nice food to have here. Having worked at Cherry Credits for a year, I’ve hardly been to the city much. Being here puts me in a different mental state. It’s more exciting just being here, although the commute time has increased. I’ll probably be more focused here. To another successful year coming!

Citigroup to cut another 52,000 jobs

US bank Citigroup has announced plans for about 52,000 new job cuts, on top of 23,000 cuts already made this year.

Citigroup job cull to hit 75,000

Citigroup said the 75,000 job cuts represented a reduction of about 20% of its staff, leaving it with 300,000 jobs worldwide “in the near term”.

The cuts will come from redundancies, the sale of units and natural wastage, the bank said.

Citigroup has lost more than $20bn (£13.6bn) in the past year because of the global financial crisis.

It has posted four straight quarterly losses and some analysts believe the bank will not make a profit again until 2010. (Source: BBC)

My blog seemed pessimistic, perhaps I should post more good news.
