it has been a while..
since i blogged. as in literally type out words. oh wells, life hasnt been interesting enough for me to pen into words. So all that remains is for me to post interesting articles i chanced upon everyday. hmmm, here i go:
Facing another mid-life work crisis. I realised, being-the-happy-go-lucky-no-long term-goals person, i am ALWAYS rather lost when standing at the crossroad of finding the 'right' job. That said, i keep asking myself: What is it that i really want? Is it like what Ezann said, i have to see that theres no perfect job. There are bound to have the bad and goods. (which i tend to forget when Im stuck in a shitty one)
6 more months to where my contract ends. And frankly, i cant wait. Typical of me, you must be thinking. Yeah. my sentiments. But seriously, how can ANYONE do what im doing for years or rest of her life?!!
Job scope (in a blunt way)
- Buy coffee/food for guests
- TONS of photocopying/printing
- Scheduling of meetings for bosses (includes alot of time waste calling many people)
- Arrange logistics for events/meetings
- Meet vendors occasionally to get quotes for office supplies
- Process invoices a few times every month
- Misc stuff: getting keys for rooms, replacing company posters, checking if phone line works, stockup of pantry supplies (rolling ma eyes)
Ok, to sum it up, im just a coffee/admin busgal cum events assistant. I do have perks such as really low period, where i can take my time and relax. I admit, no job pays you this well and allows you to do nothing much and knock off on time.
But still, YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN?
SIGH. this post came up cos I am feeling pretty emotional after a potential client called me this morning to enquire about DM Rocket. A product I used to sell when i was at SingPost. And i eventually found the correct person whos in charge and pass Richard the contact. For that few mins, i actually MISSED having my own clients. doing account servicing... and not THIS.
However said, i of cos couldnt stand the micro managing, thats why i left.
And its much much worse here actually, on another aspect. Hm, lets do a comparison of the 3 jobs i had should we?
alright, getting a little lengthy. To be continue tomorrow..
more details on my 2010 plan!
P.S: I might be working p/t at one of my favourite boutiques in August! *SUPER EXCITED*
Have a wonderful day people!
