When I first started working in my current company, the question a few people back home asked was, ‘Who does she know there?’ And the sad truth is that that’s the way it is a lot of the time here in the Philippines: connections get you around, and so people just expect that’s the road you take.
But I wondered, ‘Whatever happened to people understanding that it’s good old hard work that got you where you are, or being in the right place at the right time, or walking through a golden door of opportunity and knowing when to take risks?
So I set out to write something about landing your dream job (I’ve had a few of them!), and how to get where you want to be in life. You can read the article here on Female Network.com, published just this week.
From experience, I learned that it’s a combination of many things (which are listed in the above article), including using your connections in the right way (Tip: Think about the potential consequences before you post that juicy detail on FB!). Some people are lucky, but most do work hard and strive, and they are the majority who see great results, both in their personal and professional lives.
If you are still on your own personal journey to realizing and holding your dream, don’t let go. I hope the article will be a little help to you. Have a great week, and go for that awesome job you’ve always wanted!
