First Fireworks in November

0701FireworksBefore the month begin, I am already searching for jobs, passing resumes and praying to GOD about it. And since 2007, I lost jobs during August and gain one whenever November entered the picture…

Is the “magic” of November still there? I hope so…

A lot of opportunities came and some of them I grabbed but sad to say, I did not pass in some of them and in some, I missed the opportunities by not coming to the appointment and some jobs are not really meant for me…

Last Sunday, after watching This Is It, I bought Midland Courier, set my goals and end up organizing my day-to-day activities including application on-line and setting appointments for Small Groups and other businesses…

Tuesday, I received a text message that I will have an aptitude test in one of the call centers on Thursday. So, I still went around, look for other opportunities but again, it’s not for me…

Come Wednesday, I saw my e-mail that I am supposed to report that day… I missed another opportunity and there were other opportunities too that I missed…

Thursday came, I tried to negotiate about the misunderstanding in schedule, so they allow me to take the exam during the day…

During the exam, 6/10 score would be considered, I scored 6… I almost slip the opportunity again but during the re-take, I scored 10/10 and gain a fast passing rate during the typing exam… So, I was asked to come back in the middle of the night for my Initial interview…

Before, I went back… I tried to get some rest but I can’t sleep, I just went to the comfort room, bow down before Him and said, “LORD, be glorified in everything that I will do… Be with me in this endeavor…” Then, went out full of energy…

When I came back, I saw 4 other guys with me waiting for our client interview after our initial interview (5/18 people applied in the afternoon – 5 of us are men and we’re the only 5 who are still standing during the night). Actually, I almost fail the initial interview as I was nervous that time with the cold breeze outside added to my agony but the manager says, she will give me a chance…

After waiting for 30 minutes, it’s my turn… We talked with the client and we had a good conversation… In the end, all of us passed and we just need to process the requirements needed so we could start our training already…

What I have learned?

One again, I have learned about being HUMBLE… When you say “GOD, I am weak. I can’t do this… You’re the only one who can help me through this one… I give my full trust in YOU, be my strength.”

Three times that I almost slip with the opportunities but three times GOD spared me from failing. Now, the job is just waiting for me to finish some requirements and we will get to it…

I went home with a big SMILE in my face, breathing so well and shared tears of joy with my Creator…

Thank you so much to all who prayed for me, who encouraged me and who inspired me! =)

More importantly, to GOD be the glory! =)
