    Virtual Assistant/ Administrative Aide

    Philippines - Tests: 3

    After my 2 year course I applied in different hospital institutions but none of them responded in my application. This lead me to frustration, I really thought I could find related jobs that would lift me up from being a working student serving families just to be in school yet I found my self applying in different industry: it was Selling/ Marketing, at first it was hard to accept that I graduated 2 years but my work is the same with those who are high school graduates. In order to live I accepted the challenge and I find my self growing in this industry. I met different people with different way in approaching your products. Some were afraid to entertained and others are happy that we talked to them and introduce our products. In this kind of work I learned that standing for so many hour is the key to earn more, quite tiring but its the fact that we need to accept. Sometimes I feel so bored and confused but through praying , all is cleared. After a long wait, my mother: a worker in mayor's house was asked to let me work in her office.This was the start of my happiness working in an office. I was hired in the Office of the Municipal Mayor as Administrative Assistant II for 2 years. I am in charge of receiving and filing of documents. I am the staff who directly contact with clients to assist them in their needs specially in getting working permits,certificates and affidavits to be signed by the Mayor. I also had a special task which is to process reimbursement papers of the different projects and donations wherein I monitored it in different departments to ensure that it is processed fast. Our office also had its outreach program to remote areas wherein we deliver different kinds of services like getting personal data of those couples who are living in together for 5years and up so that their relationship will be legalized.We also give free check up for residents and give them free medicines funded by the office.This was one of the best worked experience I had cause I learned government processes which also led me to help people in serving our nation by my own ways.Working as Job order/contractual in a government is not that easy,no work no pay no benefits at all. Sometimes our toil is not paid and salaries were delayed. So I decided to left and be back in Selling industry. I was hired by an agency to work for their client as Sales Consultant, the company(their client) also send us in their main office to be train and to know their products well.Yes, it was successful and we opened the new store in a mall wherein I was pointed as Assistant store head / OIC ,same rate but more responsibility added. This experienced helped me a lot since we are paid above minimum and all overtimes were paid. but then I decided to resigned and study a bachelor's degree, this time I will reach for my dream no matter what it takes . There is nothing IMPOSSIBLE , cause the word itself says 'IM POSSIBLE'.
