There is Something Wrong with Me




These three words pretty much sums up my life right now. It’s been 8 months since I graduated from college. It’s been 4 months since I got my Philippine CPA license. It’s been 2 weeks since I’ve started sending out my CV to potential employers.

No progress since then…

I’m so confused. I feel frustrated. I feel I’m falling behind. What the %@&! do I do now? I know it’s only been two weeks and you might think I’m over reacting.

I can definitely say that my situation is as unique as it can get. I graduated from the Philippines then migrated to the UK hoping to find work. I know that the Philippines is not a very much recognized country. I know by heart that I was an average student in school. I’m aware I haven’t got any work experience. So chances do I have here? Seriously? I reflect and think about my friends and classmates who have been working for 4 months now, learning and earning, and here I am: on the verge of giving up. I kept feeling that I made the wrong decision to move here. I got  very excited and eager, hoping that I could get a job right away. Boy, was I wrong and reality hit me hard. But going back to the Philippines is not an option. Not right now, anyway. But I do know I have to stand by my decision. There’s no turning back.

A positive attitude will help me get through.

I have to keep going.

So I totally forgot that I have this blog. I’ve been away for a month and a half because I went back to the Philippines to fetch my things and say goodbye (temporarily) to my favorite people. Last year, I’ve already sorted out my CV and Cover Letter, ready to be sent to prospective employers. Let me just tell you the struggles that I have encountered while writing my CV and Cover Letter.

  • Guide – I was told to never use a template while writing them, but to rather give you an idea and use them as your starting point to get ahead. After searching for a decent guide, I found an informative website which I was able to use (link below). It is undoubtedly helpful and complete. It also gives you advice on how to tailor your CV and Cover Letter to a particular job you are applying to, do’s and don’ts during an interview and it is a job finder website itself.
