It’s my 2nd week now in Singapore. So far, it’s been a crazy (in a good way) 2 weeks and I am sure there’s a lot more in store for me for the next weeks to come. Every waking day, I go online and look for openings and drop my resume to whatever position suits me. I buy newspapers every Wednesday and Saturday to look for urgent openings. If chance allows, I also do walk-ins.
This is how it must done.
Of course, I leave extra room for praying, workout and dinner with friends – in short, GALA. Lol. Jobhunting can be really stressful, and balancing my activities will be key in managing such pressure and stress. Thank God ICA granted my application for Long Term Visit pass, and I have the whole 3 months to seal some deal.
However, I am giving myself 1 month. Something must happen by then. Every day is crucial – especially on expenses. So there’s no time to waste. I can’t even manage to watch TV or play Xbox 360 here, no matter how tempting it is. I don’t want to. I can do all of that, and even more, once I get a job here.
Challenges come eventually, and last week, my laptop broke down mysteriously. Thanks to my friends who offered their help and gadgets for me to use. With limited resources, I am faced with the task of making the most out of what I have here. Talk about battle-testing, this will make or break me. I’ve heard stories of my friends who are working here already on the hardships they undertook while looking for a job. Most of them have even worse situations compared to me, and yet, look at them now. I wish I will have my own story to tell too, which results to an offer, ofcourse. The question now is, am I ready?
Yes, I am ready to bring it on.
I believe the right opportunity will come to me, sometimes when I least expect it. I just have to keep mind of the basics: work hard, pray hard, and be thankful for every help I can get.
To my friends and family members who are praying for me and helping me, thank you again. 🙂
