I’ve been receiving a lot of good advises lately about being positive and not worrying about getting a job coz im still young. While I appreciate them all, I have to admit that it’s really not helping at all.
The boredom isn’t really a big deal although for some parts it may as well pose a problem coz i have all the time in the world to think about being “useless”. But boredom really isn’t the main problem. I mean having nothing to do at home except to stare at the computer screen all day and eat and take a bath and eat again and sleep and eat again and spend sleeping hours into skype and chat hours, is definitely my cup of tea (who wouldn’t?).
The sad and most depressing part about not having a job is really the part where you say “I’m broke” and I don’t even have money to pay for a 150-peso entance fee in my favorite bar (just kidding but i know you get my point).
So today I got a call from my employer. Work’s gonna start on Monday. The only thing I was worried about was the fact that i’d have to be in Iloilo for 2 weeks of training. An hour after the call, I was so convinced of saying YES to the job. But hey, that’s why we have bestfriends right?… to challenge our first decisions.
She told me about the precious time I’ll probably waste if I get too fond of the job. I told her I’m “kinda fulfilled” naman (if that’s even the perfect word for it) in being a lecturer. BUT there’s always that makasaysayang linya - “the line for hospital jobs is long, so we ought to fall in line as soon as possible” - that made me doubt.
So there, I finally had the knack to face the job interview (and the demo). It was quite frustrating to note that I was the “second choice” (the company invited me to apply simply because the others could not make it because of personal reasons). Well as it turned out, I got so preoccupied by it that I actually thought I overdid it, I prepared too much (which was good by the way). The demo was perfect, so to speak. Except for that “embarrassing moment” (I’ll keep that as a secret for now), i think it all turned out to be great. I was even surprised about being the second highest in the exam which I thought was very difficult. I scored 40, the highest was 41. yehey!
The official results are not due until next week but overall I think I’m in (yabang lang). My thanks to those who wished me a good luck and prayed for me.
I’ve got only two experiences applying for a job, and it feels so fulfilling knowing that I actually passed them all.
I wish I could tell you the newest job offering given to me. Hindi pa naman sigurado but it’s sure is exciting and at the same time nerve wrecking whenever I think about it, let alone the application process, interview and the training. When I received the call this afternoon, I felt that I had so much to thank for because a couple of days ago I was doing my best to find a part time job in the city and now i’m faced with a lot of opportunities that others can only wish they also have, opportunities of not just to earn money but to fulfill a childhood fantasy dream. And on top of it all I didn’t find them. It just came knockin on my door. I guess that’s the best part of it.
As of the moment, however, I don’t have the confidence of telling you what that newest job is. it’s a little scary but it being “unusual” in a sense just adds spice to the whole new life I’m about to enter. I wish I could stand the challenges. With your prayers I know I can!
