I am one of so many people who wants to have a decent job but before you can get it you must hunt first. It's not easy to have a good job nowadays. I experience difficulty specially dealing with foreign employer. I want to work abroad and until now i still searching for a good employer with a good salary offer. How do you get your decent job?

Hi julyteen, I think we are sailing in the same boat. I am a fresher hunting for a right job. But still now, i can't get it due to communication. Nowadays i was trying hard to improve my communication and i am sure i will get the right job with in this month. When dealing with foreign people, we need to concentrate on their words. You will get right job with good salary. All the best.

I also tried applying for a call center job and i was failed for the final interview due to my accent. The interviewer told me that i need to improved it. I passed all technical exams but sad to say that field is not for me. LOL. I want a job abroad anyway, not here but because i am bored so i tried but now so many call me for call center interview and i refused to go their office anymore. I am afraid to be told again i need to improve my accent. LOL

It is quite difficult to land a job that we will really love... but in my case... i feel that i am very lucky in that aspect... after i graduated from college... i was immediately hired as a teacher in one very respected school here in my area... Then after 7 years... the opportunity to work abroad came knocking... that is thanks to my father who did everything he can to get me hired... i did not shell out a single cent... because the company took care of everything... When my contract ended... i decided not to renew it because i want to have a baby... and i did... i was offered several teaching jobs... some i accepted... but resigned after a few months because i want to concentrate on taking care of my daughter... then i landed my current job with flexible working hours... so the set up is perfect for me... I hope you find your dream job soon... it is quite difficult to land on... but luck will surely smile on you one of these days...

Yes seems similar experience. After i finished my course i am also hired in the company that i took my OJT but after 5.5 years of works, i got bored and decided to resigned. Don't have any experience of applying a job to any company. Now, i tried to apply for a job and found it that it's too hard. LOL. Hope I can find a good job before the end of this year. If not, time to continue living and managing my own business here in the Philippines.

Hello my friend Hulyo...it's been a long time you were out of limelight. I never thought you are looking for a job knowing you had a good business before. Well, business status are unpredictable. Well, you maybe ave a good reason for that. Anyways, I wish you good luck...as for me I am already contented staying here and take whatever the fruit of my own source of income. Good luck friend...more power! (kili kili power)...

yes business flow is unpredictable but all the success of your business matters on you, it's like a pilot and a captain they manage their trip.

I already did mate bt still no response from any employer who are also a member of monster maybe I am lack of experience to the applicants they are needed. I don't know if want of these days I can receive a reply from any of them. I hope they will try my capacity being a worker. I will assure them that I am not a liabilities to their company instead n asset.
