Saturday 9: Inside Job

1. When you were young, what did you want to be when you grew up?
I knew that i wanted to wear those mini skirts and blazers. Everytime my lady neighbors who worked in banks and offices would pass by, i would always admire them. I wanted to look like them. I can imagine attending meetings complete with a perfect hairdo and an amazing suit. Everytime i went to Colon and passed by the banks, you know what i’d do? I’d always peek at the glass walls and watch the people inside. I wanted to become a CPA Lawyer.

2. Did you ever pursue that career?
No.

3. If you are not in that field, what changed?
It’s a long story and besides i thought that accounting classes were boring when i wandered in the commerce building during enrolment. Hehe!

I’m an Electronics and Communications Engineer and is currently working as a Software Validation Engineer.

5. What’s the best part of what you do?
Well, it’s not the best job in the world but if you’re an inquisitive type, you’d enjoy it.

6. Do you have plans to do something else down the road?
I’m not certain yet, let’s just wait and see.

7. How did you get your present job? If you are a stay at home mom, how long did you need to plan that move?
I just hand in an application letter after the board exam, i got called, took the exam, got an interview then hired.

No.

9. What advice would you give your children on careers?
Choose the one they’re passionate about. Choose the one they’re smart about. Armed with that, excelling should be easy.
