Episode 3: The end of job hunting
How are you guys doing? I have been sorry that I didn't come to my blogs since Wednesday as my jobs needed to be done.
All right,Let's carry on my things. Stepping back to the beginning of my 4th week with patience to find Mr. right job, I got the contact from a construction company which I applied for the position of engineer. This company was not far from my home. If I took this job, my responsibilities were to help senior engineer estimate the cost of construction and roughly design buildings' structure for bids. They told me that most of their customers have been foreigners.I could see the oppotunities to use English everyday. I had a chance to get an interview with the manager of the company. He was an old man. I felt that everybody there was kind. It was a small company. They all treated like they were people in the same family. They asked a little of questions about me, for example, what was your favourite subjects when you studied in University?. Our conversations were mostly to explain my duties.They accepted me immediately after we finished the first interview.I walked out of there with a little smile on my face and the first job I got.I was so proud that I got the job by my own, not because of anyone's help...Arww..except my dad who drove me there and picked me up after I finished, Thanks dad.
Anyway,it seemed my job oppotunities already came and didn't last for now, I got a call from another companies in evening of the same day. I decided to do more interview the day after, I just thought that it was good to try. I didn't expect anything since I knew that I was unemployed no more. This time was a real estate business, located in Bankok's center business district. The position I applied for was not an engineer, but a valuer. This company own lands of many provinces in Thailand.A valuer must do survey for their properties and decided that they should be sold or be invested by developing projects. They accepted me as well. I still remember the feeling of confusion. I was supposed to choose the first job, the engineer one. But guess what???
I changed my mind after I was thinking about it for 3 days. I didn't keep a promise to myself as I said before that I would work as hard as I could for the first company where gave me the first oppotunity. I should be an engineer, but what happened to me? why did I leave when It gonna start? I knew well that the reasons were about the salary, the size of company etc. Will you know what I mean if I ask you something?..Do you want to be a little mouse in a big palace or you want to be a lion in a small place? I already choose to be a mouse.I knew this might be the wrong decision. Anyway, I believe that whatever I choose, I would regret in the future. The only thing I should concern is to do my best in the present.
I still got contacts from companies I sent my applications to, did and passed loads of interview in the 4th week of job seeking but I realized that I should satisfy with what I picked, do it as well as possible. Oh! I forgot to tell you that I got the first job on the 21st of September, 1 moth later since I came back from the UK.
Well! I think I will be ending the story of job hunter here. Tomorrow I suppose I would be able to start my life as a working woman. For anyone who are looking for a job, I wish you are good luck and come to share your experiences here
