I apologise for the lack of updates as I haven’t been feeling well for the past week. I caught a cold last Sunday and I’ve been feeling snotty since. *sniffles*

Anyway, I have a piece of good news to share! After 86 write-in job applications, countless job interviews and two rejected job offers, I’ve finally found a job! My six months of joblessness is finally coming to an end. It’s a HR position but hey, I’m not complaining! I mentioned about attending two interviews recently in one of my previous posts and I actually got offered both jobs! It’s strange how things work out. I’m just thankful that I didn’t accept the job which was offered to me in early July.

Maybe things do happen for a reason.

I’m starting work on 1 August and I hope things will work out for me. The thought of starting a new job is a little daunting for me because I feel so out of touch. What if I can’t handle my workload? What if I can’t get used to the company culture? What if my boss turns out to be a witch in disguise? Sheesh. Not to mention the much dreaded first day jitters. What if nobody asks me out for lunch? Haha. I worry too much – as usual.

In any case, I’m so happy that I’ve finally found a job! For the first time since early 2006, I can finally stop flipping Recruit. In fact, I hope I don’t have to do that again in the near future!

I hate interviews

That’s right, I hate job interviews. I have the penchant of bombing job interviews despite having attended countless of those in the past six months. I thought I’d improve each time I attend one but obviously this isn’t the case. I still panic sometimes and I give lame answers all the time. I feel like I’m sabotaging myself subconsciously.

Oh well, I guess I simply suck at marketing myself. To think I took up marketing in school. Boo.

Some of you might already know that I rejected another job offer recently but I managed to convince myself that it was the right decision. Haha. I refuse to work with an overly demanding boss! I have the right to choose who I work with too!

Anyway, I went for two interviews this week and I hope I can finally get the job that I’m looking for. Good working environment, decent benefits and of course, a good boss. Hah!
