wanted: perfect job...

i wonder what thing to consider in order to land a good job.. is it the people.. the place... the field of work.. the happiness.. or the parent's choice...

i woke up 4:00 am today (not my usual time to rise) just to prepare myself for the job interview scheduled for this day. i left the house without nothing in my stomach... not even water... i expect the traffic for today for i know it is monday and all car's are heading to EDSA.. but everything turns out very bad.. i expect less than i expected.. the traffic is so bad.. and gives me headache and stress... i opted to rest in the corner seat of the bus and trying to relax myself...

Fast forward... after 3 hours and ten years of travelling.. i finally end up to the venue in ortigas... greenhills... im quite haggard and stress but can't do anything about it but to live with it. so as usual protocol for visitors... i surrender my driver's license in exchange to a temporary pass... with me on the line are 3 aspiring applicants who dress so corporate... i just ignore them and walk toward the elevator... as i walk in the hallway and looking for the right room... i ended in a place where everyone dress like a star... its not my thing to wear a business attire with neck tie... i was laughing as i furnishing my application form.. and one applicant saw me... and approached me... i said that im actually shocked as i enter the room and as everyone is wearing a corporate attire while im just wearing a jeans and a polo shirt in snickers plus cap... well this is me.. just being comfty so that i can present myself well... and be confident enough without thinking of what am i wearing...

Fast forward... after another 3 hours of waiting, finally, im the last applicant to be interview... e di ako todo english... whaha... despite the fact that the HR irritates me a lot... he just cant wait to let me finish talking... or am i being to talkative... anyhow... i guess everything turns out well as the interview goes on... then suddenly i realized this is not my field... this is not my expertise... being and pushing things that is not for me... i indeed intended to break the law when it comes to the dress code... but i don't blame anyone for this because this is all i want... i believe skills and talents are the selling point in the industry.. it is a must on how you can communicate well and how to sell yourself to the mass.. but then... it is also a must to look presentable... let's face the fact that people nowadays give high credits on physical appearance rather than what he/she can contribute to the company...

i went out of the building while waiting for the result... and while im waiting in a gasoline station nearby i received a text stating that i didn't qualify... by all means i text back to the message and saying... anong company po 2... kung di b nmn shonga din iung HR... wlang name na inilagay... anyhow... i expect the result... despite the fact that the interview goes well... even before it started i was skeptical to attend the interview.. and yet i just try to be there and present myself well...

And now, im currently waiting for the call of SYKES ASIA for the training schedule next week... Monday... i guess call center is my thing.. and i'll try to enjoy every minute i spend to the company...

what a stressful day today... but i enjoy it... a lot...
