The wait is over, I got a job! Finally!

A few weeks ago, I started applying for a new job since I left my previous company and was on sabbatical for 3 months. I needed a job as I'm starting to feel the weight of the bills and the back pay I got slowly dwindled down. I got an offer 3 weeks ago, you can see my previous post, and I declined it due to contract. Well, I just prayed that God would give me what I needed and deserve. I will give 100% effort to all my applications and guide me where I will be at what will I choose. Then yesterday, I applied at another company. It took only 24 hours and I had the offer a while ago. My prayers were answered, that was one of the most complete contracts I've seen. I signed it. No regrets and I'll be starting in 2 weeks. Just wanna say thanks to everyone and their support. Take care all!

Hey!! Thank you so much chica! (sorry, I don't know how to call you and I'm really accustomed to shorten names .) I'm really thankful I have this new job. I'm still getting ready and compiling all the requirements. It really has a very good compensation compared to the previous offers. And they are freakin' fast! The entire process just took 24 hrs. Thanks again and God Bless!

Thank you! I wish the same thing for you as well my friend. Yeah, it's hard to find a job and it's much harder to find something that you really like. I like the nature of my new work. It's easier and much simpler than what I had before and as well as the other positions I applied for in other companies. Good luck and take care!

Thank you pinks! Congratulations to your boyfriend as well! If I remember correctly, it has something to with smoking and its ties with the call center work environment. I am not sure, was that in Libis that you mentioned? Thanks again and take care!

Congratulations on your new job. I know that you will do well. So now you can get rid of your bills and be better able to provide for yourself financially and that you will also work hard and do your best. I guess they saw that you were the best one for the job. By the way out of curiosity, what kind of job is it?

Thank you! Well, actually it's an insurance company and I handle inquiries about it and general account maintenance. It's just simple but I think I'm gonna enjoy it as it's a new industry for me. Really interesting. Yeah, time to get rid of those bills!

Congratulation! I know how difficult it is to find a job, I was looking myself not so long ago as I wanted to change my current job to something more ambitious and challanging. And it took me over 3 months to find something and it was more of a luck than actually my experience and impressive cv. I wish you all the luck in your new job :) I hope everything works out for you :)

Thank you! Yeah, it was tough and tiring, and sometimes disappointing since it took so long. Just keeping the faith made me strong and I got it in time. It's much like "try and try until you succeed" but more of "do and do until it is done" hope it sounded right. Thanks again and take care!

Congratulation to you! t' great to heat that someone get a new job which they satisfy for it. I'm also looking for a new job, but my resignation need 3 months, that why most of the company can't accept. I'm praying that there's a good company would wait for me and the company will provide good benefits. That's true that the living cost nowadays really burdening. I have to get new and better job.

Hey zeroflash! Congratulations on your new job, hope you'll do great and success there. I just quit my job last wednesday, and I'm trying to work at home first. I too apply to some companies and got some offers, but nothing interested me till now, so I'll wait until something better come up while trying my luck in freelance jobs and online earnings.

Hey there! Thanks Dissy! I hope you do well in your work as well and best wishes in landing a job you'd really love. That's one of my top preference though. Working at home. It's a bit far fetched though and I had very little luck looking for such. Take care!

Congratulations on your new job. Feel good isn't it when you finally have your prayers answered and get the job that you want. I hope your bills would be paid off as you earn the money from that job. Keep up with posting in mylot too, you earn money from it too although it's not much but it is worth it. Take care yourself too.

Thanks my friend! Yeah, it feels reaaaalllyy good. It's something I want.. well, almost all I want! Yeah, the bills have started to pile up. Credit Cards, internet, electricity. I'll concentrate on clearing it up then save some for schooling. I wanted to go back. And of course, I'd have to admit. Mylot does help in a lot of ways. Aside from the responses/discussions, it may as well clear up a little room on my credit card.

Thank you very much! I'm already thankful I have somewhere to start. Can't really wait to see what's in store for me in my new company. Well, I really can't promise anything about mylot. I still have weekends off though and I may opt for the 4-day work week to have an extra day off.
