(Online) Job Hunting: New Graduates VS. The Not So New Ones
Well, I'm talking about job hunting in general.
You all know that I am in the process of looking for a job online coz I'm bored beyond belief and I need something to do. I don't even see myself going out and braving the traffic jam everyday so I think online work soothes me better.
Yep, bought myself a new laptop ( I mentioned it few months ago) coz my first ever laptop died on me, plus I was really set on finding an online job. But it took me at least 4 months convincing myself that I can do it, that I need to pass CVs... that despite my age, I still got it.
Gosh, I can't help but compare it to my younger years, back when I just graduated college. Why was I so brave to pass my CV to any companies back then? I didn't even had a lot of experience back then, but kapalmuks talagang nag pass ng CV kahit kanino but now, I kind of lost it na. I really didn't have the guts na. I kept on doubting myself and my abilities. Few years back, it's like the world is on my hands and I'd like to see it dance but now, the world looks like it's too heavy on my hands . Ai, I can't explain.
Ugh, if you only knew how many times I talked myself to pass the damn CV, how my friends told me na "nakaya mo nga yung America, 'yan pa kaya?" I even went home despite the uncertainty, pag pass ng CV, hindi kaya?!
Kaya pala most people get stuck in one job for life because man, finding a new job is kind of daunting, at least for me.
The whole job hunting thing was overwhelming but I got used to it and kind of like the rush that I was getting out of it. Eventually, I passed my CV, got interviewed, trained, and hey, I GOT A JOB!!!
What job is it? Find out in my next post!!!
Toyota Wigo, come to mama! hahaha! (Well, if you are a long time reader of my blog, you know how finding an online job is equals to buying a car)
