Friendster Comment

I have been receiving a lot of comments with the pictures I have been posting across the internet. But this felt weird.

Shutdown Day

It seems that there have been initiatives to save energy as to save Mother Earth.


On May 3 it is Shutdown Day. Can you survive without a computer?

Career Dilemma

I already passed most of my pre-employment requirements in Dell.

Then, the Senior Operations Manager of the company I am currently employed in has been consistently asking me if I will stay with the company with a Team Lead post with the same salary with what Dell offered me. I just said that I am really considering but I need to see it in black and white. He has assured me that he is trying his best to have it approved to the HR and Corporate although May 12 is too early for him to push for it.

I was half-wholehearted when I said I was considering. But the Assistant Director for Client Services has piggybacked the offer. It means its feasible and they are really working on it not to mention we have the same last name.

With ICT:
Pros:
Im already a regular employee.
Fun to work with the program.
Soooooooo near my house and only requires P7.50 to go there.
I can just wake up 30 mins prior to my shift without getting late.
More career opportunities since the program hasnt stopped ramping up.

Cons:
Somewhat repetitive.
Unprofessional and immature co-workers.

With Dell:
Pros:
Badged site.
Hardcore technical support.
Competitive salary for an entry level.
4x11 shifting schedule.

Cons:
Too far from home.
Takes 1.5 to 2 hours travel time.
I have to prove myself again.
11 hours of taking phone calls every day.

And a lot of things. I need your help.

As what we discussed, they are offering me to go back as soon as the papers are approved. Shall I go back as soon as it is approved? Or shall I stay with Dell starting May 12 onwards?

Pre-Employment Requirements

I went to PSBA QC yesterday to apply for a copy of my Transcript of Records. I was expecting that I would have a deliberation with the Registrar because last year, as I could remember, I had three blank grades in my scholastic records! At least im getting the copy... should be available in a month.

Then earlier morning, after shift, I went to SSS to apply for an E-6. I would be needing this as this is one of the requirements of Payroll in Dell. I arrived in the office at 8:05. Good thing, Gus let me borrowed his PSP so I had time to kill. I spent 3.5 hours waiting in the line before they could screen my application and take my picture.

There was a commotion when an old guy, but not a senior citizen, sat beside me, as I was already on the front queue. Thy people behind the line complained and started to make noise. I also wonder why they dont allow people to look good in the ID pictures. They didn allow me to smile, the data encoder took another shot of my blank face because I smiled on the first shot! Grrr!

Now, I just reformatted my phone because it got infected by a virus from my PC. Even the memory card.

Breakfast Meeting

Just finished breakfast get-together with my boss, the trainers and the Real World coaches. Nothing much happened, nothing serious - we talked about. Simply bonding-together.

Im writing nonsense here. I havent taken my sleep yet, and I have a job offer meeting later at Dell.
