i entered the building, on time, as usual. i was waiting for someone to entertain me. then came the hr staff, quite busy, as usual as well. she guided me to the conference room. i sat and she talked. she told me that she considered me to two positions. one was the position i have applied for and the other one was a moderator for a particular social networking site. since i did well in copywriting the exam, which was supposed to be a proof reading thing. hehehe.
then, with all the guts in the world, i told her that i am enrolled. i was already expecting, sorry we do not entertain students lines. then she told me that would not be a problem since they are linient with students in their company. but she told me that the position that i have applied for would conflict my class schedules and is shifting sched position. what a luck? considering that they gave me my expected salary. tsktsk.
then here came the moderator. it has a fixed sched, 6 am to 3 pm. monday to friday. wow... i just can't wait for the catch. when i asked for a petiks job, i never meant this super duper petiks. basically, what i'll do is just censor, rate and tag sms and chat conversations, images, audios and videos. slap me hard please is this for real.
the catch came, she told me the salary was way lower than what i asked, its only 12,000 plus performance bonuses.
then there were flashbacks. i thought of my rent, transpos, books, readings, photocopied cases, mister kebab, tomatokick. i felt as if my market value fell down really hard.
but i thought of still considering it. so i took the training without even signing the contract yet. darn! the job is too good to be true. if you're not going to think about the salary. then came the boss...ehem! huwwwwwaaaaaaaaawwwwww!!!
it was already 4 pm, when i excused myself to smoke. i smoked a stick and made a decision. i entered the building, claimed my id, rode a cab, went straight to home and then attended my first day in class!
as easy as that. well i just hope i won't regret it.
