Thoughts on Professional Fulfillment

Tuesday, February 22, 2011


I'm a Computer Engineer and I've been in the industry for over10 years. I must admit it has been a very tough climb in the corporate ladder and I have been trying my best to always get ahead of the pact. It wasn't easy for me to begin with; and so did my peers in college. I have friends in the Civil Engineering Department and since they are mostly project based the opportunities for them were a little scarce since the recession. If you are a civil engineer you will feel less involved in nation building because if you need to start off in an entry level position the salary range wouldn't be as nice if it was a white collar job. The field would be your playground and the chance of getting in just to have experience is very scarce. Road projects and skyscrapers built by Real Estate corporations would be a big deal but some of them would never even go near professional expectations. Since it is hard to get a job; the long withstanding hope for a better life would also be gambled. There are some sites like CIVILENGINEERJOBS.ORG who can help provide opportunities through a community; and if they only get to harness Information Technology to get these jobs it would be doubly easy since they are going to be the one sought for by the ones who need them.

I'm hopeful that someday it would be easy for everyone else to get a job. We all have our individual qualifications and some are brilliant than others. If we work on what we have and make that a deciding factor for business owners to choose us over thousands of applicants we would all get a better paying job and professional satisfaction which makes this world a better place for us and our loved ones.

Do you have plans to get a better job this year?! What would you do to make it to the top?! Let me know and comment on this page! =)

its hard to find job kasi medyo matataas ang standards ng kumpanya at namamasukan. May time na fresh grads cant apply kasi requirements ay 1 year exp. so usually, they ended up to call center na talagang minsan ay di na related sa course. sensya sa mahabang comment.

i think in times like today, it is hard to find or even keep jobs whatever it is you do. we all just need to adjust & do what we could under the circumstances...

I always aim to be on top of the pact and it is really hard kasi my competition rin ako and since I don't have any job experience here in the US before I landed the job that I have now kaya naman I started from the bottom. I was promoted pero plus one lang from the bottom. After my visit to my family in the phil this march I am planning to apply for another job hoping that with my experience I can have a better start.
