After months of email blasting and resume sending, I finally landed my first job interview today. Not to say that it's a terribly impressive job (telemarketer) but it does feel close to an achievement after you have been rejected so many times.
Come to think of it, I must either rewrite my resume or try to pull up my grades at least during my this final year in NUS. I realized that most employers in the field, especially le government related sector, prize your grades especially high, even though that might mean that you might spend the whole day in the room doing nothing but reading your books and not even meeting a single human soul. What happened to soft skills being important in the workplace?
I guess I shouldn't be complaining though but I'm afraid by being content, I would gradually sink in to the monotonous working life that I'm so afraid of, the one that we can usually see during early morning rush hours, the stereotypical bored office worker. No I would not want that.
I still have a year to straighten things out.
