No Work on Barangay Election Day!

Yey! This is the second time we didn't have to go to work because of a Philippine Holiday. Woohoo! This is what I've been dreaming of for the longest time - to have a normal life. Normal meaning, a usual Saturday/Sunday restdays ; usual 8am to 5pm work and no work during holidays. I love it! Never thougth I would experience this in my professional career ever. As you all know, I've been stuck in a call center for seven years and call centers don't usually have holidays off. If you're lucky, you can get a weekend off and a morning schedule but the probability of you being included in the "lucky circle" is very rare. Remember when I told you that I'll post about how I came to a decision of leaving my Call Center Career? Well here it is.

To be honest, I don't have any plans of leaving my current call center job at that time - I have a good relationship with my team and with my superior, however, there has been an opportunity that came knocking that is very hard to resist. I thought I would stay for another three years in my current company and I have already informed my TL about my plans of pursuing a TL role in the future. He is already honing me to become like him and I've learned a lot. I believe that if given a chance to get a TL role, I would be able to pass the interview in a snap - that is how I'm confident on how I can manage that role. Everything is in it's proper place...all plans are in tact, until my friend Ice - who's been my friend for almost seven years informed me that she would try to apply in HP - a company where our friend GK is currently working. She encouraged me to apply...she made me realize that there is still an opportunity for us to be able to get out of the call center profession we are in. I don't regret being in this industry but the stress, the work location and the shift time is almost unbearable for me. I do love the people but the circumstances I dread. So I've decided to try it out, with no high hopes and just so blessed to be able to make it...and until now, no regrets. I am happy I took the risk and got this chance to see what other things I can do.
