Right / Wrong Desire to start in a big company?

I applied for the P&G and J&J campus recruitment a few days ago.

When I did the elements test from P&G, I was feeling it’s quite interesting. But when J&J’s little arrows appeared in over 3 questions, I was feeling why people use this kind of test to judge people for their intelligence. Maybe there is no better way currently as there are thousands of people competing for one position. There should be a way to pick out one candidate, no matter what.

But from my stand of point, I was feeling this is really a huge world with a ton of people you will never meet for the entire lifetime. By this I mean, there’re so many ways of living. The way to happiness is not limited to enter a high profile company.

I know I want be become more intelligent but I am doubting was my thinking that I should enter a Fortune 500 company is a right idea. Maybe yes, maybe not. I do have the desire, but I don’t want myself to feel miserable or it’s just myself feeling disgusted or upset during the test process. I was nervous so my intelligence was degraded to some extent. I kept touching my back because of my nervousness.

Last night, I was feeling exhausted when realizing I wasn’t given a chance to take the verbal test from Adidas. A few days ago, I was refused for a basic position to write WeChat copies. I wasn’t upset bc I wasn’t so interested in the position. After two or three failures from the top companies, I knew it’s not easy even I’m back home. Here are so many students from all backgrounds competing with me. I’d better hold on. This is what I told myself before I went sleep. I told myself I need some discipline to hold my energy and keep trying.

This morning, before the J&J test, I read something from Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill. I read this kind of financial books recently partly because of my fear of not getting a job, not feeding myself.

My situation is that I utilized lots of years for two diplomas – one bachelor, another master. My professional experience is poor for anyone in the industry to see. Still, I have a high exception on my entry salary which surprises my dad. How can I have such a high expectation? But to me, it’s only a number. I don’t really care only if I can feed myself. But when the interviewer asks you, you still have to assertively give a number.

Back to the test, I was feeling furious to some points. This kind of question should be a piece of cake to me. But I made mistakes and due to the limit time for each question, I lost a few on each of the three parts.

Now, half an hour past. I am sitting here checking on my blogs. I knew today I should be open-minded. Nothing can judge or tell us who we are. If they don’t fit me, we just keep looking, trying and finding the optimal way for ourselves.  The next keyword is thinking about the state of mind I should have.

 

Thanks for reading. Have fun with your day!

Best,

Fay

 

 

 

 

Why I’m boring or I’m not pretty to you but I don’t really care.

Today it becomes clear.

This world is so large as the ocean, everyone has their opinions about you.

Not everyone is a specialist in impression control.

So the situation becomes, some are saying you are boring, while some are saying you are not so cute.

 

But please remember, there are also people who cherish your beauty and they call you “cutie” and there are people who like to laugh with you and dance with you because you are such a richly humorous individual.

It’s not that you are not perfect to them but it is that you haven’t met your people. Those special ones who see you through and appreciate you for who you are. They love the whole you.

So be assertive. When you are not so sure about others’ opinions on you.

Only you know you best.

You are fun, just your fun is different than theirs.

You are pretty, just your beauty is different than theirs. 

Don’t care about how people think about you unless you wanna fit in their ideal model of your image or if you agree with what they are saying.

Never suspect you as you.

You grow up this way and there is a good reason for who you are right now.

 

长大是一辈子的事情

有一天。我不记得因为看到听到什么,想到一句话。可能是小时候的话。

“长大就好了。” 长辈说。

 

从孩子到老人,从起点到终点。

在生命的末尾时候,想想:

你觉得自己会觉得自己长大了吗?

长大是一辈子的事情。

长大是自己的事情。

多难的过程,多少泪水,多少心酸。

但是这样一句,长大就好了。

一切不可怕了。

你心安了。

不呱噪,不犹疑。

你决定看看脚下,看清面前的路。

你去体验、创造、享受。

不论风和日丽还是风雨交加。

 

这样简单的一句话,

“长大就好了。” 长辈说。

孩子呢,懂得了等待。成长。
