My Dream Job
I had completed my Masters and was looking out for job. I had scored well and was hopeful of getting placed in a good organisation. Never thought it would be so tough searching a job. I went to various top level organisations for interviews and used to clear till the final round but don’t know why after reaching the final round someone else was selected and I was rejected for silly reasons. I couldn’t understand what went wrong.
As I was searching for work I thought of whiling away my time by joining a nearby library. The 1st book that attracted me was The Secret to Teen Power. I had chanced upon this book earlier also but did not read it then. I took it home and was totally engrossed in it. I completed the book and felt better then I thought of reading The Secret and got that book at the library. After reading I visualized what kind of job I wanted and how I will know that this is the right job for me. I always wanted to work in an IT Firm and visualized working in one, and my awesome office with wonderful work colleagues. I visualized when I go for the interview (for this ‘awesome company’) I should spot a peacock feather. After almost 2months of writing it and several interviews later I got a call from an IT firm but was not that keen on going there as I was exhausted giving interviews with no luck. But I went for the interview and gave my best. As I was walking down the lane from the office I spotted one shop where I wanted to buy a trinket. As I was having a look at the trinkets I saw peacock feathers all over the place. I was stunned to see that. It gave me some signal but I was not jumping to conclusions. I went home and forgot about the interview. Next evening I got a call from the HR of the firm and she informed me that I have been shortlisted for the last round interview with the director. I was happy but at the same time I got a call from another firm and it was an MNC . I was so happy to get calls from two awesome firms. I went for my final round of interview. It went well and the next day I went to the MNC firm for my 1st round and it went well. I was feeling positive that I would crack either of the interviews. A week passed by and no response from either of the companies. I was disheartened again but kept visualizing what I wanted. After a week I got call from the MNC firm for the final round of interview. I was happy and excited. I went for the interview but they made me wait for 4 hours and I was totally pissed off. Then the HR called me just asked me a couple of basic questions and told me to wait as he had to attend a meeting. I was there again waiting for another 1 hour totally tired.
That evening we were celebrating the anniversary of my parents and I got a call from the HR of the IT firm that I have been finalised and they want me to join them the very next day. I was super happy and suddenly remembered that this was the same place I had seen the peacock feather. Thanks to Rhonda, I found exactly what I wanted. Happy to have found my Secret.
