Today is Yesterday was a special day; the day where I officially signed my way into the working world. During my last semester I decided to pursue my passion thus despite studying Finance, I aimed to work in a fashion firm. Of course I didn’t want to let my business degree go to waste, I mean after all I spent four years and thousands on the paper, so I got to know about Retail Operations and pretty much think it’s the job for me. Honestly there aren’t many companies that offer a Management Trainee programme and even so, I’ve been super picky because I wanted to work for a brand I like and can relate to. Many a times people say fresh graduates can’t choose but I say, you can!
The journey wasn’t a smooth sailing one, especially so when your peers are all securing jobs even before graduation and already earning. And there will always be people around you who ask you to just take up any job rather than waiting for the right one. But I’m glad I waited. I would be lying if I say I never once felt pessimistic. There’s bound to be such period and I’m glad for those who stood by me (you know who you are). Eventually I got the job I wanted, in fact it was what I initially planned all along. Though the pay’s lower than what most earn, it is what I want and I know I’ll be happy working in an environment I like as opposed to hating my job even if it pays more.
After all these, it just makes me more certain that if it’s meant to be, it’ll be. Things do happen for a reason. Don’t you think so?
I learnt that life is a continuous process of finding ourselves through trial & error.
