I started job hunting around October. But at that time I my head was in a magical wonderland where I could work anywhere around the world without visas and stuff. I was full on applying for jobs in Australia at that point. And i did get a few call backs and went for interviews but unfortunately no one was willing to hire me and sponsor a visa. So by that token, I guess I kind of started realistic job hunting yesterday. By realistic I mean applying for jobs in Singapore. I was telling myself I would start earlier after revamping my resume. But procrastinated and finally only did it yesterday. And that too because I saw a job advertised that I really want. I am qualified for it and think I can do well in that position so now I am praying that they call me back.
I have to say the thought for re-joining the workforce here isn’t great. I am not looking forward to waking up at 6am and fighting my way on a crowded train to get to an office where I am until 7 or 8 at night before coming back home in time just to have dinner, have a shower and sleep. No more free time to slack off. On the positive side I will have an income which means I should be able to start travelling ans going on short trips again. Anyway, if anyone hiring a hospitality, tourism, events or marketing professional (this is a non-exhaustive list) anywhere in the world is reading this, please do let me know and I will send you my resume :p.
