I missed my blog! After looking in the immense amount of pictures in my cell phone, I decided to pick up my slack. To start my 2015 journey in recording little adventures towards another amazing year.
First, I like to share my biggest milestone that happen in the last few months...
The biggest change was my career transition which happened on New Years Eve. This all started with a little trigger, a little spark. Soon after, I created a goal for myself: to send out 3 cover letters per day. Some days were more productive than others, depending on the amount of ideal job openings.
Always strive to find a more challenging job, one to which you can build your experience on. Never find a "boring" job, to be an overqualified candidate in. In the end, job hopping may become the reality before the seat gets warm.
In two week's time, I had 2 phone interviews and 2 in-person interviews. Phone interviews were easy because you can scheduling them during the coffee break (for those who work). In-person interview became more challenging as I worked from 7:30PM-4:30PM. Thankfully the company who hired me provided an exception to schedule for 5PM (their office hours are from 8:30AM-5:00PM). Thus I had just enough time to commute if I got off 15 minutes early!
After a round of interviews, I was hired. Making a much needed transition from a marketing company which specialized in lead generation to a market research company.
