Last Monday was my first day working inside the hospital. I was excited because I will be going back to my first love, Nursing. I have been away working on sales and marketing department for almost 3 years which helped me grow maturely and professionally but the happiness was never there. Moreover, I never regretted grabbing the opportunity working in a medical institution again. Why? This was the only job in my entire life that I never felt exhausted even if the salary was not as high as the one I once had.
If I were to give an advice for fresh graduates seeking job, I will tell them to try all the jobs that they may want to experience. At the end of the day, you will find the career that you would like to pursue without being bored or tired. It is not about the money you will earn for a living, it is all about how happy and satisfied you are with your profession.
If there will be one occupation that I would like to have for the rest of my life, it will be caring for patients. There are something about being contented and fulfilled every time my patient will say "thank you" for all the things that I have done for them. Most especially if they will be discharged in perfect condition after their stay in the hospital.
Seize every opportunity and work on your advantages. Each occupation is worth a try, if it fails then move to another. Before you reach your late 20's, it is time to decide and settle to what job you heart desires. We will never be forever young but all the moments that you will undergo will be worth your life's adventure. Have you decided? So what's your plan right now?
