I left the Laguna house before 6AM. I arrived in Makati around 8AM. I was an hour early for my appointment. I was wearing an orange knit top and a pair of khaki pants. Both I bought in Divisoria a few months before. I was carrying a knapsack full of clothes. I was in Makati for my first ever job offer! I had no idea what would be the terms of the contract. All I knew is that I was going to accept it and that I had no place to live in. I did not know I would start on the same day and sit beside a Maui Taylor’s look-alike. Interestingly, just a day before, when I had my final interview, I paid for my NMAT exam, the national entrance exam for med school.
Fast forward to 9 years. I am still working for the same company, doing what I love, recruiting. September 11 is sad day for most people but for me, it was one of the most positively life changing days of my life! Happy Anniv to me!
