As a fresh graduate, I’m pressured to get a job and to get a stable income.
I was pressured as if there was a timeline that I must beat. I was conditioned that at 21, I must settled. I must be already successful. But, life doesn’t works like that.
Here I am, 23, and I’m unemployed. I filed my resignation without other plans. Simply trusting my intuition and dream.
At 23, I worked in two different company. I had two jobs. I only lasted for a while, for six months in both. I knew that in my country, this is not a good indication. It is not good for my profile.
It’s not easy actually. I resigned not for fun. I did it because I don’t want to be stuck doing a job that I don’t like.
My first job was not a good experience but a good lesson. The second job was beautiful. I loved it and I enjoyed it. I just wanted to pursue more. Something is missing.
I’m actively seeking for a job and receiving countless rejections. I also have no idea what should I do in life. I’m in the phase wherein I’m questioning myself. Like, I don’t even know where I’m good at.
I’m in the crossroad without a plan.
I don’t know, but I think I’m better off that my applications were rejected because I feel like I’m sending it half-heartedly.
I don’t have plans. I don’t know.
I just hope to be part of a company that celebrates individuality and cultivates the potential in me. I hope to have a job that I’m joyful and peaceful. A job that I can enjoy and at the same time I can enjoy my life.
It’s been 2 years since I graduated college, its a rough journey. I’m still struggling and fighting for my dreams.
I hope to find the place and people that I’m supposed to be where and be with.
My professional journey is indeed full of twists and turns. I think I’ll get there eventually.
