“Oh my God, I hope I don’t pass my bus stop, conductor, owa o!!”
You can imagine my shock when the woman I asked for directions told me that the venue for my interview was almost a 15 minutes walk back from the bus stop (the wrong one, btw) at which I had alighted.
The time then was about 7:35am, and my interview was for 8:00am!
So I start power walking. Past 1st gate bus stop, past the traffic light, past Cadbury, and up until I locate the street on which the company is located.
By now, it was 7:55am!
Anyways, I get to the venue for the interview, get called in for the interview, and it was pretty good.
A few days later, I get an email from the HR manager telling me that I wasn’t selected for the job position. Of course I felt really sad (the pain of rejection) for a while, but I eventually got out of that valley.
I must state here that everything above this line took place in November, 2016.
Fast forward to May 2017, and by this time, I had moved forward, and was already working as an intern at a wonderful media company Lifegiva, and I loved my job.
So, one day, i’m talking with my friend, and I get a call from an unfamiliar number. I pick the call and it turns out that it’s the HR Manager of this company that had earlier rejected me calling to find out if I would be interested in a job offer.
So we talk further, and decide on a date to meet up for a ‘chat’ (code name for a laid-back interview).
Bla bla blabbity bla.
After the ‘chat’, I got offered the job on the spot, and discussed my monthly salary as well. I was asked to come pick up my letter of employment later that month, and the rest as they say, is history!
The best part of getting the job now, is that the company moved to a new office that is extremely close to where I stay. I can literally leave my house by 7:00am, and be at work before or at exactly 8:00am!
I begin this job on the 3rd of July, and I am super pumped about starting a new phase in my career. So if you more experienced guys have any ‘what to do when starting a new job’ advice, I would absolutely appreciate it if you could drop it in the comment section below.
P.S: Thank you all so much for all the views and likes on my posts, I really appreciate all the love ♥.
P.P.S: I still will be working at the media company during the weekends, and virtually during the week whenever I can.
Have an awesome week.
With loads, and loads, and loads of love,
