    correct word/s

    This question is similar to the one I posted earlier.

    I would like to confirm whether the sentences are correct as those in the earlier post.

    I started work as a banker and has remained in the post till today / since then / ever since.

    Which word/s should I use? Is the sentence correctly phrased?

    Also, in the second sentence is 'as those' correctly used?

    Thank you very much.

    Best regards

    It would be better to qualify your sentence with a time....

    When I left school/in 2004/last july...I started work as a banker (banker is a bit ambiguous as there are many jobs in a bank...maybe I started working at the bank) and have been there ever since/since then.

    I see you are in Singapore. I will be there (briefly) tomorrow en route to Penang for five weeks in the sun.
