My Career
October 11, 2006

I walked into work this morning and I see a note from my boss asking me to pass by him as soon as I get it. So I hang my blazer, put my stuff down, and head to his office. Usually, its bad news when your boss wants to see you first thing in the morning. So I knock on the door, walk in, and sit down expecting the worst. And when they start the sentence with your name, you just know it cant be good. I actually thought I was getting fired. He started talking about team work and loyalty, and, naturally I was agreeing. The whole time I'm saying to myself, "Get to the point already!" So it turns out that they are understaffed in a certain department and were searching the bank for people who are fluent in english and arabic in financial analysis; and boom, I get selected and highly recommended for the job :P Its true!!! ;) I am now a Credit Officer and will be transferred to become a Credit Analyst. Hehe funny how they come up with the funkiest names:) Anyway, I know it is twice the pressure and work load but its also twice the working experience. I know I will suffer but I also know I will learn a whole lot from this. Looking forward to it but scared shitless at the same time:)

    stallion. cos once inside the bank it is uncomfortable keeping the blazer on. plus i wear my blazer in the bank only during committee meetings. i pass by my boss at least 10 times a day in his office, not gonna keep taking my blazer on and off.

    I do not understand people who want to work and seek more work, what is wrong with you? go do something besides work, like being lazy and not working at all.

    purg. spoken like a true bum:) u want to stay where u r, thats ur life. i, on the other hand, dont and would rather excel. Btw, i noticed one thing about ur comments, always pessimistic... u lacking love in ur life?:P or is it just on my blog?:)

    they are not pessmisitic, depends on how you read them.

    One day you will want to be like me, being a bum is the best job.
