Paano mamahalin ang isang bagay na ayaw mong gawin?


If there's one thing that separates me from other employees especially those who are working in the call center industry, that's my reluctance to get promoted. I just don't see myself pursuing a long term career in a call center.

A few weeks ago, my immediate supervisor, without my knowledge, endorsed me for a higher position. I was surprised when they called me for the initial interview. I humbly begged off. Two weeks later, I was asked to reconsider the offer. I though it would be too much to decline again, so with an assurance that I could quit anytime within a certain period of doing the job, I finally said yes.

I have been here for a week now, and I am so ready to quit.

Waaaaaaaah!!! Ano gagawin ko?

Hi Ely,

Aren't you proud that despite not doing anything to impress, you still got promoted. Like Ewik said, ipon muna. Recession ngayon, bawal ang job-hopping! :D

iRonnie said...

oo no. why would life have to be so complicated..

ely, pareho tayo. hehe. im mentoring now and it's stressful. hindi lang sarili mong work iintindihin mo but also that of your subordinates.

good luck. huwag mo na bitawan yan. sayang ang pera. hehe.

Ely said...

wanderingcommuter, un lang. ang hirap din mag-ipon...

hi Chyng, i thought so too. un lang consuelo-de-bobo ko. hehehe. recession nga...pag nakikita ko pila ng applicants sa ground floor, napapa-isip ako.

iRonnie, very complicated!

The Scud, hahaha. Yun din sabi saken, isipin ko na lang ung PERA.

You're superb, Ely. Kahit ayaw mo sa work mo, napu-promote ka pa. Hehehe...

lucas said...

napaisip tuloy ako kung anong work ang gusto mo...hmmm...

hindi ko naman kasi alam maxado kung pano ng work sa loob ng call center pero kung ako sayo (tingin ko lang) i'll stick to it habang wala pa yung work na talagang gusto ko...

ang hirap kasi ng buhay ngayon alam mo na...hehe!

follow your instincts. and may you take the right path...

Ely said...

Dak, i pondered on that too.

Reyn, ndi naman. no choice lang sila. hehehe

lucas, thanks for the advise. i realized that i may need to just go with the flow hanggat kaya ko. Pag ndi na, that's the time to think about letting go.
