Start of working life

Looking back at my 9 months of training feels like a movie's flashback. There were times of pain (from long hours of standing and walking), stress (when we need to meet documents and project deadlines), fun (through my various rotations) and sense of achievement (when my group won the project presentation and how i survived delivering it in the auditorium first time wearing a blazer).

Now that I have started work (it has been almost a year counting), it is very different - I would liken it to a boulder off my shoulder, although there are still small loads thrown to me along the way. The learning journey now is fully dependent on self, with nobody to push me at the back anymore. Work everyday is very routine, except on days when i get rostered to work overtime elsewhere. It is not too bad in spite of the travel as I am quite happy with my current benefits and pay. I can foresee myself staying on (through the 2.5 years bond for sure) and looking for opportunities to develop myself in the company.

My work scope may not be very much of my interest or passion but I shall learn to appreciate it from a another perspective.
