… I finally got a job… in the city bordering my hometown down South. In a small but fast-growing IT solutions company, just doing massive data entry job. Sure, the position will have repeated routine tasks and the pay isn’t exactly attractive, but at a time period such as this where there are still unfortunate people out there unemployed even up to now1 and you really can’t afford to be picky with jobs right now. After all, self-survival is your priority, especially if you have a family to feed and provide shelter to. Who knows, maybe in the future that there will be room for growth. We all have to start from the bottom in every stage of our lives and just start climbing up from there in a few simple steps. I look forward to training, get my skills updated, so I can have better opportunities in the future. 2013 really is glorious. God really is good2 and there truly is such thing as second chances. If you don’t succeed the first time, there’s always a second (and more) times to stand up and try again. My two-year absence from the workforce is a major hinder to my work experiences resume because that would make companies question if you have been slacking off or if you have done other things, such as volunteering or even taking care of your family when they’re sick3. I think from this point, I should be okay and readily prepared if I lose a job again. Short entry. Nothing more. Right… so I received a phone call from the employment agency just a few minutes ago letting me know that their client who hired me received notice from their higher-ups that they have to go on a hiring freeze, so my job has been postponed. In short, I’m still unemployed up to this date. Yeah.
