I’m slacking with this blog badly!
So what I’ve been up to lately that I haven’t even had much chance to stop by at your blogs?
OK, I’ve been going to so many job interviews here in the past couple of months that I seriously start to think I should be called a professional interview goers!
Because I left my old job – one that I held for only 3 days – because of a family emergency. You can read about it over at World Moms Blog post. I’ve been unemployed since then.
My focus has been finding a new job ever since but it hasn’t been easy. It’s been so damn hard and World Moms Blog allowed me to channel my frustrations at the whole scenes. Oh you have no idea how much I wanted to blasted these companies here that measured my capabilities and my skills as an executive secretary from how short my skirt will go. Or how sick I feel of being asked way too personal questions that totally got nothing to do with the job I was applying for.
It really has gotten so bad that I started having this attitude when I go into a job interview since then on. Mentally, I prepared to fend off and refuse to answer any more personal questions. I just had enough for the craps! And if I ended up not getting the job well, I don’t care anymore.
Strangely enough, armed with that attitude, I went to two big job interviews – granted they are international companies – so they are more professional and they never once asked me one of those uncomfortable questions such as “Why did you get divorce?”
Now, I’m happy to report that I had just accepted a job offer.
It will allows me to work from home – hey, working from home moms I’m gonna need some pointers! – and I couldn’t be more happier than this. Not only that this job have so much to offers for me in the long run, I will actually be exploring my passions professionally involving writing and social media.
There’s no more need for me to get up at 4:30 am every morning and make long commutes to and from work. There’s no need to feel guilty for getting home so late after a 12 hours working day and coming home to a sleeping child anymore.
I am beyond excited!
