I’m gonna begin with a rambling of sort. A story, quick one.
A friend asked me if I’m ever concern about the look on my resume with me jumping around jobs from one to another in less than a year – particularly in 2013, with two new jobs in the same year – trying to figure out what I actually wanna do in life.
For once I choose not to answer. She has a point, no doubt. Disloyalty is the one thing those peeps over at HR particularly hate, no matter how good you think you are. And 2013 saw me at my lowest, career-wise, and those couple of facts could shatter my opportunity in future and why shouldn’t I be afraid, no?
I gave her remark a long thought. I have my own reasons for quitting and I know for sure some are legit enough to ponder over. So a couple of days later after that conversation I had with her, I sent her a text message:
Remember when you asked me if I’m ever concern about what job disloyalty could do to my resume? Of course I’m concern. But I think I’m more concern about not being loyal to my heart. My heart knows enough when I’m not happy.
Details of my look:
Kimono top from Cotton On, black laced peplum top from Dorothy Perkins, skinny jeans from H&M, wedges from Payless Shoes, bag from Charles & Keith, head scarf from Jalan Tunku Abdul Rahman.
