It’s been three months now since my brother became out of work. He has been applying for jobs at various companies, but it seems luck isn’t on his side yet. He has received several job offers from local recruitment agencies but I don’t want any of them for him because of job security issues. I don’t want him to be a contractual worker again. One in the family is enough.
My brother is a technology and livelihood education (TLE) teacher but doesn’t have a license yet. After graduation, he forewent the opportunity to take the LET and concentrated on his first job instead. He finished his 10-month contract in June.
Right now, he’s waiting for feedback from a big leisure property developer. He got interviewed there for an entry level position last week. We’re keeping our fingers crossed.
Job hunting entails a lot of patience and determination. It’s never easy to get a job in Manila, contrary to what people in the provinces believe. There’s always a struggle to get the most rewarding of jobs. It’s always a survival of the fittest. That’s why it’s very important for someone looking for a job to brace himself physically, mentally and spiritually for the ultimate battle of brains, skills and accomplishments.
May the best applicant win.
