Early this year I’ve finished my study in Bachelor in Engineering (Civil), early January to be exact. 2 weeks later, I worked as Temporary HR Assistant in one international company here in my place. It has been a wonderful experience for me to be working in HR Team for 3 months contract basis. Even so, it has nothing to do with Civil Engineering, but though it thought me a lot about the management and administration of the company. It does make me a little bit wiser and something to add into my general knowledge which is I thought very valuable as a beginner like me.
2 days after I completed my contract, I started working in a Civil Construction Company as a QAQC Assistant, also a contract basis job. At first, I was so excited to be working in my major of study. However, the excitement wasn’t stay long. To be working under pressure, on site construction and to deal with main-contractors and client, oh mannn I tell you, it never easy. I even intended to quit at some point of my time. Some of my colleagues called me a cry-baby as they thought that I cannot working under pressure, cannot get scolded and cannot work under hot weather. When I think back, if I was in their position I would think the same idea of why-do-this-girl-wanna-quit-too-soon? You know what, that’s why I am still here, still working here, because the quitters never win.
Some of my friends, advised me to stay working here in order to get paid, I mean to get the salary, the money, money, mmoneyyy. You know what, It ends up. not about the money that I am looking for. It is more to experience, working environment and the most is to enjoy working. I was wrong all this time about chasing money. I was so wrong about demanding the expected salary when I applied for job vacancies. It has nothing to do with the money if you are chasing for something more to life. Love your job, then you will enjoy working, and money will come later.
Once again, the quitters never win. Please, guys, don’t quit too soon because you will never see the result of your hard works.
