I'm glad that I have secured a new job, and I'm now in the midst of handing over my work and duties to my staff and supervisor.
My new job is within the same industry but of a slightly different nature, and the breadth of issues to be dealt with would be wider. Looking at it positively, this would allow me to learn new skills and acquire more knowledge of the sector. That said, I foresee the learning curve would be steep, and in the short-term, I would have to put in extra hours and effort in order to quickly get up to running speed.
In my new job, I will also be looking after a slightly bigger team and have the opportunity to further my management capability. It feels stressful but I guess for a start I can apply what I have learnt in my current job that works, and remember to don't do what I have found would not work.
I realised from this job search experience that being financially stable helped me in my interviews and decision-making on which job to pursue. I felt that I'm pursuing something that I find more meaningful, and in turn, I felt more confident at the interviews and able to answer the various questions relatively easily and not stressed out.
For now, I'm excited that I have a chance to take a short break before starting my new job! I'm looking forward to the break, and I hope to maximise it by:
1. Doing something that I want to or which makes me happy. This could be anything, and without the need to achieve any outcome or objective. Just something that makes me feel happy and alive.
2. Learning something new. This could be to learn a new language, skill, or anything that improves myself and makes me a better individual.
3. Contributing to the community. I hope to engage in some volunteer work so as to play a small part in making things better for someone out there.
Looking forward to tomorrow, and working towards a better future!
