Thank You for My Father's Life Lord

Phew, we just had our Final Practical Exam yesterday and continuation today. I really pray I was able to pass with flying colors. I don't want to retake the exams anymore especially that asked my superior if I could go half day today as my father has been rushed to the hospital this morning. I received a text message from my younger brother that he's been confined to a hospital somewhere in Sampaloc Manila. Since it's our final exam today and I can't take a leave off work - I just asked my husband to go to the hospital to check my father's health situation. It's already the third if not the fourth time he had a stroke and whenever my brother send me a text message - I always nearly die in I pray he won't have another one. Good thing, I just received a text message from my brother that my father is now doing well. He can now sit down and speak. You don't know how relieved I was upon learning that. God is good all the time. He still gave me a chance to make up for those times I wasn't able to bond with my father.


Lord, you have been so good to me. Not once did you fail me. Some of my prayers was never granted because you have a better option for me. Everything is working out for my own good. Never will I ever doubt you Lord, never will I give up trusting you. Thank You.

Training Days

 It's has been a crazy week for us. Since were still on training, there has been a lot of exams given to us to test our knowledge about each module we discussed. It’s really tiring but as far as the result is concerned, I'm very happy. Out of four exams we had, I only had one mistake all in all which is really a good start for me. I really want to make it big as in "BIG" here in HP so I'm making my path straight as early as now. Earlier today, we had a 40 item quiz  which is like a summary of all the modules we've discussed for the past two weeks…. and as expected I got a perfect score. After our exam, we had a side by side session with the RM team - we are supposed to observe what they do and how they handle tickets. The first Analyst that was assigned to me is also a newbie - her name is Manilyn. She just got hired four months ago and she gave me tips on how to be able to manage my time in creating tickets. At that time, she has been assigned to do one task the whole day so she recommended that I try to observe someone who is creating an actual ticket. So my training asked another Analyst to accommodate me though he is already teaching my co-trainee on how the process works - and the second guy is helpful but not very accommodating, maybe because my guy batch mate is asking sooo many questions about his job. Actually, before we went to the floor to observe, we were already informed that we are not supposed to ask questions to make sure their SLA would be met - however, my co-trainee is bombarding him with questions that hampered his productivity. Maybe that is the reason why he said he will definitely go on "OT" that day to complete his task, though I admire his professionalism as he answered all of my co-trainees question in a professional manner.

The day went well… it's not as hectic as it was yesterday and I even had the chance to blog. Hopefully I would be able to post often from now on so I can get back to my old habit of blogging and earn lots of moolah. Goodluck to me.

HP DABARKADS

Yes! I finally decided to resign on my job as an RST in CVG and tried working as an IT Analyst in HP. My friend Gk is the one who convinced me to work in this company. I can still remember the first time I heard about it, I already got curious and wanted to try it out right there and then but there's one thing that hinder me - the office location. Their only office by then is on Taguig City and it would be very far from where I currently reside which is in Rodriguez Rizal. Good thing is the company finally had set up another office in  Quezon Avenue! Yehey! Everything really worked out for me. And that’s what pushed me to apply.

It happened so fast, GK - our friend who is currently working in HP informed us that there is a "walk in" event the next day. I was hesitant at first because I am not ready for an exam and an interview but when my bestfriend at work Ice told me that she will go for it...I also took the chance.

Right after my shift at 12nn, my hubby fetched me and off we went to Taguig riding a taxi. At that time, I already knew that Ice passed her initial  exam. I asked her for pointers and she generously shared it. She said she didn't even know why she passed because it's just a guessing game according to her lol.
 
GK, Ice and Omar (one of GK's friends) saw me downstairs, they went down as it is in time for lunch. We ate at Army Navy while discussing the possible answers to possible questions in the exam. To be honest with you, I still don't have the intention of resigning anytime soon. Omar and I will take the exam together at 3PM while Ice is waiting for her turn in the initial interview. While reviewing, I've noticed Omar isn't as nervous as I am. Most likely because it's his 3rd time to apply in this company.

At around 4PM, I and Omar took the exam. The first part is English proficiency - which is just easy. Simple word construction and the like. Then came the technical part, phew, it's super HARD! Though it's a multiple choice type of exam...it's really hard! No idea at all… I don't know how I was able to manage to pass the exam but for sure, there has been a miracle that happened that time. Something like a divine intervention. Haha!

So here I am, happy and fulfilled in this new adventure of mine.  After 7 years of working in Convergys...I finally decided to bid my final farewell to the company I served so well. It has been so good to me. Because of CVG, I was able to buy my own house. Because of CVG, I met beautiful people that I intend to keep all my life.


And now on this new adventure, I promise not to commit the same mistakes again. I will push myself to the limit and will never be afraid to take risks anymore. I'll do my best so I can honor God with my talents and be a blessing to others as well.
