Busy and Bitchy

Who says I’m on a hiatus?

The past months had been very busy and bitchy. Somebody should congratulate me for I am now formally a part of the high unemployment rate in the country. It’s already summer but I don’t think I’ll be able to enjoy it. No more vacations for me. And I am still busy trying to save myself from being a bum but it seems like there are limited opportunities in the corporate world in my chosen field.

After 16 years of studying, I still consider going back to school. Man’s quest for knowledge is boundless. I’m not satisfied with the four-year course that I took. I’m still thinking if I’ll pursue for a second degree or post graduate studies. But before that, I should really get a job, a decent one.

After weeks of job hunting, I find it quit stressing and disappointing. Stressing, as what I said, there are only a few job openings where I could really apply my field of knowledge. The mismatch between the skills of the workers and their jobs, or for jobseekers, the available jobs are cannot be denied. Thus, most individuals in the country are experiencing structural unemployment. Most of them are can be seen in the Business Process Outsourcing industry. As much as possible, I don’t want to be one of them.

Disappointing, I guess I just expected too much and because I’m being choosy.

Oh well, got to go back to being busy and bitchy, job hunting rather.
