I get my little kicks VI

I've sent out my first two job applications. One of them is what you might term a "cold call" whilst the other is with respect to an advertisement a friend had brought to my attention.

I have heard good things about the working environment in this "cold call" company and even though my sources say they have no openings currently, I decided to give it a try. The other company's identity is unknown as its advertisement was posted via a recruitment company. However, the consensus amongst friends is it is "this" company. I've also heard of some good things about "this" company, so I jumped on the opportunity once I found out about it.

Yet another case of 謀事在人,成事在天。Fingers crossed again!

Amongst all the "little kicks"
I've been getting recently (I, II, III, IV and V), the current one has given me the biggest "ommph". Even if it was self-induced. Well, the reason is simple: This is the most direct affirmation that I am returning to Singapore.

8 days to go.

Well, at least you know more or less when you're completing. Lesser uncertainty is good.

Good luck Ac and Jade,

Hope you all do well and get high paying jobs.

Ac - no harm trying cold call. If any vacancy arises, they might give you a call instead of running an advert.

BTW - Head out to this link if you need some interviewing tips and help..It's the US Actuarial outpost. [if you have read it already, sorry - hope you don't find me presumptuous]

Hope it helps.
