Think Globally, Act Locally

Call me insatiable but I really am especially when I see that my career's future is still vague for a late thirty’s like me. This blog is a repository of my rants and maybe it's about time that I got to do something about it. I started exploring other opportunities late last year and I got a few responses. Either I’m over or under qualified to the jobs I’ve been applying for. The jobs I didn’t push through were from the Ortigas and Quezon City areas. I also got invitations, or headhunted. I got an invitation to join as a QMS Officer, something I liked sana and I guess I’m also qualified but the location is very far I will only spend most of my time commuting. The other invitation was from Singapore for a LIMS Administrator, but I didn’t have any knowledge in Oracle programming that’s why I didn’t persist.

I’m so glad that my job hunting already paid off. I finally got a decent offer (something I can’t resist) Not only do I get a pay just right for the task (not overworked but underpaid!) I will also have opportunities to go to China, US and Canada. Speaking of Canada, Lito already got a call from the Embassy and hopefully our immigration plans will finally be realized. Accepting the offer will also mean a long term career move because the project I will be involved with is HQ’d in Canada and getting a job there will not be difficult. Thank God! I may have become impatient with my career but God really works in mysterious ways and made all these possible.
