Yay! Finally I'm leaving the old for the new...

I landed my first job in a Telesales Department when I first joined a reputable Financial Institution. The experiences that I have gained in sales & services are really tremendously vast. To my knowledge, I thought I would be selling credit cards only but when it came to the year of 2006, we are diversidie products such as Credit Cards, Balance Transfers, Personal Loans etc... and our individual Scorecards/KPI targets are chasing the height of Mount Everest every month. (and if I'm really buying multiple shares/options, I really do wish that it fluctuates this way).

What I like about this institution is that I'm able to move around departments if I'm there for at least 2 years. When 2007 came, I've been trying really hard to submit all the "advertised" entries in our intranet. Trust me, a Telesales agents is never as salable as any employees in the eyes of the other respective departments, which I really have to humble myself to learn from the hard way up.

Finally, by the Grace of God during prayer and fasting, I have submitted an entry without getting my self prepared for the interview and what really shocks me during the session was when they were asking "How soon can your boss release you?" I was in awe. And I didn't even think I would be impressed with myself with the way I'm performing in the room.

Now, at the back of my mind, they sounded really desparate and I'm really worried that the new place I'm heading for... is it for the better? Let's wait and see... :o)
