Here are a few things that I realized when getting a job
- Lining up at government offices can be such a hassle since I would have to wake up really early in the morning just to get a service number at NBI, SSS, and even for the medical check up..
- The pay for entry level jobs is not really enough to have a decent lifestyle.. I mean how the eff can I buy a house or even support my needs when I only get a basic pay of around 9k a month plus taxable benefits of 3k? (Not to sound ungrateful or anything)
- I have learned to respect the people who work in offices more.. Their job is not easy and yet they are not really compensated well.
Things are going great for me so far :) After applying for the job at an online job portal, I got a call like a few hours after to wear "Business casual attire" (WTF is Business casual attire haha.. I had to google for it but I still didnt understand so I wore long sleeves and slacks.) and see them for my long waves of interviews.. After being one of the few applicants out of 20++ applicants to have had made the final that day.. It has made me conclude that applying for a job is such a struggle haha.
But anyways I now work in a bank since I didn't want to work in a call center and I can't work anything medical related without my license. Funny thing is it's a bank close to where Cheng is working at :) It is sort of awkward being one of the few male bank tellers.. They said I can become a "Roving Teller" once I finish "training". So far nobody has asked about my sexual orientation but I have this huge crush on this guy who handles the loans.. I need to catch a sneak peak of what he has to offer when he pees on the urinal next time.
