first try, first loss

Today, I went for a job interview in Makati.

Today, I also lost the job opportunity from the same company that interviewed me earlier.

Tody, I experienced an emotional rollercoaster.

In the morning, I was so nervous yet happy because for the first time, a company invited me for their screening. In the afternoon, I checked my email and read the letter of regret coming from them.

All happened on the same day.

I don’t know if it is because I answered the interviewees questions in Tagalog or because I failed to upload my mac formatted resume in a linux operating system, or because I ran ot of time in answering the grammar exam or because I did not see the skills section of the information tab in the exam. I don’t know. I really don’t know. Maybe the job is not really fit for me. Maybe, it was just not my destiny.

I may be saddened by the quick twist of fate. I may be depressed because of the sudden demise of my high hopes about bagging a job immediately. I may have lost almost all my energy during the day just after reading that email but I know one thing’s for sure: I will not stop dreaming and believing that one day, that perfect job will fall on my lap and when that day comes, I will say to myself that all the failures are worth it.
