A pleasant day to all Fellow Mylotters, I went out to visit my friend in her office. As I am waiting for her, I just try to divert my attention to other things so I won't get bored while waiting. And while diverting my attention to other things, I just come to think of it, its like I am missing the working environment of being at the office. Having this idea on my mind, I didn't notice that my friend is sitting beside me as she was ready to go out. I was surprised then when she suddenly asked me, if I am still waiting for someone aside from her. . Because of that thought, I didn't notice the time. Oh my, it looks like I really missed working in an office environment. How I wish I can be hire and accepted again for an office job.

I gather you've worked in an office before---what made you stop and what's keeping you from applying again? Sometimes, there are choices that are no longer available to us that we need to accept. If that is not the case with you and applying for an office job, I'd say print out a couple of resumes and hit the job street.

hi there, yes i was working in an office before. and for some reason, i have decided to do a career redirection. apparently, what was i did was no good. so i am suffering the consequences now. if only i can turn back the time, i will definitely go back to it and i won't go back as where i am now. but, i can't. how i wish a fairy god mother will appear in-front of me, then, i will ask her to bring me back to my previous workplace, but it is not feasible as fairy god mothers don't exist. so i am trying every effort that i can and lifting everything to God. for i believed, He will make a way for me.

I think if you want to you can try to find a job in the office, maybe that is not difficult and you can be surprised by the results. Come on, just have a try.

Yeah, why don't you try applying again? I'm pretty sure there would be a spot again soon. Just don't lose hope. Tell your network that you're looking for a job, perhaps they could recommend you. Have a great mylot experience ahead!

Hi airasheila! Why don't you apply again? I am a working mom and I accept it is a hard task. That is why I am trying my best to discover online opportunities so that if I would be able to earn from online what I am earning offline, then I could stop working already. Have a nice day!

A pleasant day Aries1973, I will try my luck this coming week, hopefully I can passed all of the examinations. But, honestly, I want to establish my own company wherein I want to handle people and help them to earn a living. But I guess, that turn is not yet for me right now. So I am dwelling on other things such as doing Entrepreneurship. Handling SME while waiting for my turn to be an office lady once again.

Well, what are you waiting for? Then try to look for one. Me, I am not happy already with this kind of job. It's been three years since I am working as an office staff and I want another kind of working environment. I want a job that explores outdoor activities or simply a travelling job. I want a more adventurous job.

Hi aira! It is quite funny to think that I would rather stay at home than to work at the office my whole life. I sometimes feel that I am so exhausted doing the same routine at the office. For almost 7 years of working for a local company makes me want to try out some other things such as, pursuing a home-based jobs or business that I could handle my own - making me my own boss! But there are times that I am so thankful for being able to have this job (because of the compensation and benefits that i get) and having great friends at work. LOL! It is like weird for me to be so thankful and not to be so thankful at times. Maybe I am not content or I am so tired of doing the same thing over and over again. They say that we only start to miss something when we don't have it anymore. Maybe if I'll quit my job and stay at home doing something else I will miss my current work and be crazy all over again. LOL!
