The Work For Me

The Work For Me

I was hired in Davao Regional Hospital last April 6, 2015 in a regular, plantilla status. My position is Administrative Assistant II. Although my position and salary is not that much, I thank God that I have now a stable job in a government office. I prayed years for this, and it is now given to me.

I was assigned in the Admin Cashier’s Office and my job is somehow complicated and new to me. My undergraduate and graduate studies were all about Biology, my work experiences involved teaching Sciences for almost 9 years. So basically, I have no idea what my office mates are doing.

For a few days, they gave me some simple paperwork to accomplish. It was easy. Then later on, they gave me assignments like recording of the hospital’s income, deposits, accountability and many others. I was also able to transact to other offices like Accounting Office, Chief of Hospital’s Office and many others.

Of course, I am so serious with my job so during the first few days, I had headaches, migraine, confusion, tiredness and complains. I guess it was STRESS. I had a hard time coping up and adjusting my time. I had difficulty in balancing my time with work, business, ministry and family because when I get home, I was so tired I do not want to do anything more than to sleep.

Time has passed and I thanked God I was able to cope slowly. At the start, I was asking Him why He placed me in the Cashier’s Office, why this hard and complicated office, why this work that I have no single background. But little by little, He is beginning to reveal His purpose for me.

I love my job each day, especially my office mates who are very supportive. I am beginning to pick up the pieces and back to my old life. I am now having strength, energy and motivation to do all things I used to do. I know I have the potential and God will help me unleash my potentials. God placed me here to fulfill His works, to spread the Gospel and see Him through me in my life and works. I know God will work His ways for me that is why I am here and I thank God for everything.

Me As A Kids Church Teacher

Me As A Kids Church Teacher

I just had my first own class in the Kids Church. There were only few kids but I was so nervous. Maybe because I was worried they will not understand the lesson or they will get confused, especially what I am sharing to them is the Word of God.

But after a while, I was calm and enjoyed the rest of the period. The kids were noisy but cooperative. They were able to answer my questions and made the craft in just simple instructions.

Thank you Lord. There will be more of my classes each month, once or twice a month.

This is my ministry. This is my passion.

Online English Teacher

I am a stay-at-home mom. I cannot leave my baby for more than three hours because she will not drink any other milk but my breast milk only. And because of this, I looked for ways on how to use my time wisely and productively. I engaged myself in online teaching.

Last 15th of November, I was hired as an online Biology tutor for American students. I love it and I was able to received my 2nd salary today. Just this morning, I had again another interview through Skype, but this time, it is for an online English teacher post. Actually, I applied for this job because there is a night shift, from 12 MN to 8:00 AM. It will be so convenient for me because everybody is sleeping and the internet connection will be faster and efficient.

I had my interview at around 10:00 AM. I was so relieved when the interviewer told me that it is only through voice call. But I was dressed-up already in case it will be a video call. I was able to answer all questions without me stuttering. I was so glad! I wasn’t nervous or scared. I heard her very clearly. I know I did well because I spoke clearly, on the correct pace and I pronounced each words correctly.

Of course, after three hours, I received an email telling me that I am hired. Yes! I made it. I am officially an English teacher.

About the company, well, the company is called StudyNet. It provides one- on- one conversations in English through Skype. It creates an environment and wonderful chances for students to practice, chat and communicate in English with hundreds of tutors from Vietnam and all over the world. With Studynet, the students can enhance their English (especially speaking and listening) skills but can also find lots of new friends (even internationally) to chat over their favorite topics.

After I filled out all the necessary information for my profile page, I uploaded a picture also. I also made my schedule. I chose to open a lesson between 11:30 PM to 2:00 AM so that there will be no disturbance. Fortunately, someone already booked for a lesson and it will be on 9th December at 23:00 to 23:25 PM. I am very thankful to God.

I hope and pray that my students will be nice, kind and responsive. I hope and I will try my best that each student will learn, will have fun and most especially, they will make the most of their payment.

I received an email last October 21, 2011 from Island Tutors Outsource. They have reviewed my CV and wants to interview me through Skype. Actually, I have applied as an online tutor for this company about three days ago before I received the email. I have read the ad from Jobstreet.com and it suits me so I applied. There’s no harm in trying.

Here is the ad.

The interview was last October 26, 2011 and I was so nervous. I thought it would be a video call but thank God it was only  a voice call. First, Mr. Magcalas asked some personal questions, then about my experiences and then he told me he will give me a quiz. I was shocked because I didn’t expect for a quiz but it was a multiple choice type. The quiz was through Skype also. There were 20 items but unfortunately, I only got 16. After that, he told me he will contact me after a week.

I know I should wait but it was over a week already. So I emailed Mr. Magcalas again to ask the status of my application. It was a very good news! I was hired and will start on November 15, 2011.

Came November 15. I had my orientation through Skype again. I had my own account. I also tried the digital whiteboard. It was so high tech and I was amazed. I didn’t know that it existed and it was truly useful and helpful for discussion. My work hours is from 8:00 AM to 1:00 PM, from Tuesdays to Fridays. The payment will be through BPI and I already opened a new account. I hope I will be successful in this job. God bless me.
