Lessons from a Wanderer (Part II)

Proofread reports before submitting it. It is a mortal sin to present a finished document without reviewing it from top to bottom page or cover to cover, scrutinizing the spelling of every word used and verifying the inside address and signatories. Read it five times even though it only needed to be read twice. It is much better to be cautious than be sorry later. Lastly, make sure you can explain your work because some superiors do not bother to read documents specially with a hectic timetable. There is a high probability that you and your boss will chit chat over its content.

Do not bring work at home. Carrying a memory stick with unfinished reports or a file of documents at home is a big mistake. If you don’t want your workload to chase you in your dreams then leave everything in your table. Make a To-Do-List before going home so the next day you know exactly your priorities.

Make sure your cellphone is always on. I don’t know about you but in my case, a cellphone has always been a necessity. I used it not only to answer questions of my co-employees but more importantly to attend to clients’ inquiries. I know it is not in the context of any profession to take action when work is over. There are text messages and incoming calls however that demands utmost attention. By the way, if your cellphone is frequently used for official communications than private purposes do not hesitate to ask if you can reimburse your load expenses. An all text 20 load a day could saddle your wallet in the long run. So, Practice your right!

Working could be so much fun for so many reasons but we sometimes fail to experience the joy in the workspace also for so many reasons. Adjusting to different people and being flexible to various situations are very vital in any line of work. This is quite difficult specially if you arejust new in the company. However, you shouldn’t give up easily. When one starts working it is not important that you graduated with honor. Your performance and your overall attitude will ultimately determine your tenure and possibly your success. But if you fail and fail and fail in your pursuit of a seemingly perfect job, here’s a quote from a man with no arms, no legs and no worries::

"What do you do when you fall down? Get back up…
If I fail and I give up, do you think I’m gonna get up? No.
But if I fail and if I try again and again and again, there is always a possiblity that I will get up.
I just want you to know that it's not The End.
It matters how you're gonna finish and
you are gonna finish strong."
--- Nick Vujicic ---

To all job hunters, try again and again and again until you find your niche!

Cellphone is a neccessity, yeah, but sometimes nakakainis na rin kasi hindi ka tinitigilan ng pag text bosing mo. Sira ang cellphone ko ngayon and I don't give a damn! Mas mabuti nga yun para di niya ako ma-kontak, hehehehe. Bad ko no?
