I have been busy perfecting my word pronunciation, finding my optimum voice and faking my confidence these past few weeks, robbing me of the time to read, write and blog. One of the things that I’d like to write about, though, is that I already have a prospective job after almost a month of being idle and worthless.
The last four weeks really tested my patience and will to land a job. Part of being employed in my current company is going through a rigid communications training to neutralize our accent. It wasn’t easy, even taking me three attempts before I got certified. I can’t even imagine that I have endured the idea of failing the Certification twice, that’s why having passed the third communication assessment was like winning a trophy. My heart was throbbing and my knees were shaking as the trainer announced the passers.
I am also fortunate enough to meet Leah, one of our trainers, who made me realize that in order for me to get away from something bad, stepping out is not the solution but stepping up. This is so true because I don’t want to be a simple call center agent for a long time. Had I known this before, I probably wouldn’t have left my old job and aimed instead for a higher position. The good thing is that I am about to get a new one and I’m going to make it right this time.
