I've been job hunting this past week and in ways unimaginable it felt depressing, exciting, degrading, and all those mixed emotions just ran through my body. What I noticed while I was browsing through the pages of Jobstreet was that i was telling myself, "Nah, I'm not good enough for this". The moment I realized I kept thinking that, I had to stop myself. It's like a nasty bug trying to pollute my head with all the negativity. I had to re-charge and remind myself that I came from a prestigious University, I've had great work experiences relating to my course and that I needed to focus on my strengths rather than my weaknesses.
The hard part about looking for a job is also being picky. I know that in hard times like these, you have absolutely no right to be picky. But when I think about it, I'll be working in that company for atleast 6 months, and I don't want to be stuck in a job that I have to drag myself in the morning to go to. I want to do something I know I'm passionate about and would really give me the motivation to learn and grow as a marketer. Problem is, my desired work is in Public Relations and Events, and most companies are only hiring Sales Executives / Associates which even if I try hard to convince myself to do, I can't. It's just really not my thing. I've also been looking for work overseas, so far I've sent it to this hotel in Male,Maldives (I know it's a long shot, but who knows?), still trying to work it out for Guam, New Zealand's another long shot, but oh how I'd love to live and work there! I've gone through some interviews here but nothing really appealed to me. I just know there's this perfect job for me, and when I find it, I'm not letting it go! Tell me, honestly, is it so wrong to be picky?
On a lighter note, I love Pepi commercials, and this one just hit me. A really awesome strategy for job interviews:
