Job Hunt 2015 – BPI Head Office

It’s been months since I’ve posted an article here on my blog. So I would like to introduce a new segment, it is about my experiences during Job Hunting since I am a Fresh Graduate that seeks a suitable job in the industry. The articles are going to have on its title “Job Hunt – (insert title) So let’s start!


Earlier, we went at BPI Head Office to take our initial interview and pre-employment exams. Unfortunately, I didn’t pass the first exam (Math Test to be exact). Applicants are time pressured, applicants will only have 10 min. to answer the set questions given. The basis of passing the exam is the scores, but I think its on how you answered the set of questions. Were you pressured? Able to fill up all the questions? Doesn’t leave any blank spaces?

It was my first time taking an exam on a bank so I’ll just charge it to my experiences. On the other hand, after the screening we went to different banks to drop by our resumes. So hopefully, I will be able to be text or called by those companies.

Job Hunting is really exhausting and you really have to spend much of your money, its expensive but that’s the point. You have to sacrifice sometimes. That’s all!

“Birthday Greetings”

Have you ever greeted your friend on his birthday? I mean personally or you just have received a notification then posted a greeting on his wall, message him a happy birthday.

For me, I  would like to greet a friend personally. Because greeting people on their birthday is somewhat requires sincerity and not just you had greeted that person a happy birthday on his special day. Facebook is one of social media sites that sends you a notification about birthdays of your friends in Facebook. I just noticed that sincerity fades away as you post your greetings on their wall or message them. Some people posts “HBD”, “Heypii Beerday” etc.. especially here in my hometown. I am not against with that kind of greetings though. But for me, I don’t apply it for myself. Because I would like to preserve the sincerity of greeting the person on his special day.

Yesterday, I have attended a Debut of one of my friends here in our town homes. It was a great night for me. Wearing a polo-shirt, black slacks and a shining shimmering black shoes. I look great that night (I suppose). So I’m the only bachelor on our table because the other bachelors can’t go with us due to occupied time. Although I am the only bachelor on our group. It was a fun night, with laughs and story telling, you know a typical group of friends. I was one of the 18th roses of the beautiful debutante that night. So we danced then talk about our friend who’s unable to attend the party. It was my second time to attend a grand debut. So that’s it.

I have greeted the debutante a happy 18th birthday, sincerely which I really prefer to all the people in the world. But of course cause of the fast paced innovation of technology. Change is constant, so some may prefer and its ok to greet their friends online. It depends but still for me, greeting the person personally is the best better yet if not, send them a cards via post office. 🙂

“Revelation”

It happened last Tuesday. It was the day to defend our Term Paper. It was a successful defense to all the groups. Our group was quoted to have the best paper among the other groups. It was flattering. Being the leader of the group which has the best paper among all quite boosts my self-esteem towards my academics.. I also got the highest score among the class on our Final Exam. It was an achievement because it is a rare event of my life..

I have no intention to boast all of this things. I hope to inspire other people who undergoes the same thing, challenges and tasks in work or in school. While doing the Term Paper, we didn’t thought that it’s going to be the best among all the groups. Well, maybe at the back of my mind I sometime thought of to get the highest grade for the paper. But that’s not the main goal. Our main goal is to do the paper well and not to piss off our Professor. We wanted her to see the paper neat and knowledgeable. We just did our thing. Term Papers needed to be direct to the point. It doesn’t need to have a lot of gimmickry upon presenting it to class. It requires simplicity. The objective of doing a term paper is to compliment with the implication that your study has. That’s just it. It doesn’t require anything just simplicity.

I was quoted by my Professor to be “A Revelation”. Since I got the highest grade on our Final exam and having the best paper among the groups in our class. As I said, this was one of the rare events of my academic life. I didn’t thought of being the best while taking the exam and doing the paper. I didn’t expect that this will be the end-result to all of my hard works. Inside me was a really happy kid.
