When I turned 21, I thought I can handle decision-makings maturely. Until weeks ago when I turned down two job offers. I did not know if it was the right decision; all I know is that up to now, I’m thinking if it was right. Really stupid me.
A day after I left home, a staff from RD Group of Companies in General Santos City phoned me if I am available for the Communication, Media and PR Officer post of their company. I said no. God, imagine what I just missed? That exactly is the best job for a Speech and Corporate Communication graduate. And I just lost it.
A week after, another unknown number buzzed me through call. “Hello I’m (I really can’t remember the name) from Mahintana Foundation. Is this Vincent?” “Verbal Nod.” “Sir, do you have a job right now?” “Yes. (Falling intonation)” “Ah, so your not available for the project officer post in our company?” “Yes.” “Ah ok, thank you sir.” “Ok.” Goodness. Imagine again, Mahintana is the CSR part of Dole Philippines, Inc.
Then I called mom and told her the story. She said it’s fine with them as long as I’m happy with what I am doing right now. Well yes, I’m happy. Before finishing college last year, I made sure I’d experience working somewhere where I can be myself, I can do what I want, and I can show what I got from the academic years I had. For now, I think I am in the right place. I am enjoying, yes. And so far, I am loving this job. And tuesday is payday! I am looking forward to spending the money wisely. For the melons! Cheers!
