final interview kanina sa inquirer with the hr manager. things went smoothly at first. then he asked me where i see myself 5-10 years from now. so sinabi ko na rin sa wakas. he asked me if i've made my decision. i said yes.
after several questioning, sabi niya, "you find yourself in a dilemma." huh? uh-oh. "we're in some kind of technicality here."
pinipilit ko sarili ko ngumiti. "sir, i'm not getting employed. i'm going to study." "i understand, but the company has vacancies..." i could almost hear him cite the clause in the contract stating that PDI scholars are required to work for a year. buti na lang di na nya sinabi pero what the, ganun din ibig niyang sabihin.
to be fair though, he delayed judgment and promised to consult with the research division head. tatawagan daw ako this week. floating status muna. whew! *cross fingers*
on a positive note, nakausap ko sec ni mr yambot before i left. although medyo tinatakot-takot na nya ako with the possibility of paying 40t kung di ako matutuloy sa PDI, sabi naman niya she'll talk to him about it. baka daw pumayag. baka.
hay...the perils of being tied up to a scholarship. pero salamat pa rin inquirer. i have absolutely no reason not to want to work for PDI, except nga lang in this very rare instance. sabi ko nga, kung magpapaemploy na rin lang ako, sa inquirer na. it's just that, i'm not up for employment right now...tsaka na lang.
guyito trivia: ang pinakamalaking guyito na nakadisplay sa ground floor ng inquirer office sa makati ay nagkakahalaga ng 75t pesos. ang mahal! ang bigat pa. 5 tao ang kelangan para buhatin 'to.
ang hirit ng taga-hr: if you're planning to impress someone with the big guyito, not a good idea. ang tanong: ba't naman guyito ang bibilhin ko? how...unromantic!
