Carry on.

Opportunity

It’s been a busy month, but it’s been quite satisfying knowing that things are progressing albeit slowly. Just four more months and I have finally graduated with a Bachelors in Business Administration
I found my dream job and I really really hope I make it through the selection process. I won’t say for whom it’s for or what the position is until I actually do get hired. For now, let’s just say that the process involves extensive logic / personality / Meyers Briggs testing along with a series of interviews over the next couple of months. I think I have a good chance considering the fact that they’re looking for basic Korean speakers to fulfill their mandate. It looks like serving a mission may have been the best decision that I could have ever made!

The job involves drumming up potential clients for Canadian businesses and keeping an eye on industry trends in whatever your region you’re selected to work in. School for the kids is paid for while abroad as is a portion of the rent and moving expenses. You’re periodically shuffled from country to country every three to four years with periodic stays in Canada between each international assignment.

I fit the requirements. However, I just need to get past those exams. There’s nothing to study for… I just have to be honest with myself and answer the questions truthfully and as quickly as possible. If I do get past the exams, there’s a good chance I can get it.

I really hope that I get this job. It’ll be the start of a new life for us. It’s been a big dream of mine to take Evelyn and see the world – and if someone wants to pay me for doing so… hey! Even better. I take the selection exams this Saturday. Any prayers for us would be greatly appreciated!
One thing about the selection venue… it’s at UBC! Isn’t it ironic that the place that I left in such poor circumstances six years ago is the gateway where my life takes a dramatic turn for the better? I really hope that I can leave that exam room knowing that I have a good chance of making it for this job.

“Go with the flow” E. says. “If this job is for you… if this is what He has in store for you… then it will happen.”

I should follow her advice. But as Anne said in L.M.Mongomery’s epic, “I can’t help but fly upon wings of anticipation.”
