Life is like a box of choclates

"My momma always said life is like a box of chocolates you never know what you' re gonna get" my favorite line of the whole movie and it's so true.

I was in a state of contentment and hey I thought my job was ok.   Only to discovered lately, that it's not okay for me to stay on.  If there's an opportunity, I would want to move to a better place.

I sent many job applications online and of course there were a couple of interviews I went.  Weeks of waiting for 2nd interviews,  there were no responses.  I almost give up until.....

I was chatting with my friend and she told me a particular place is hiring for an accounting post. And I said I am interested and I sent my resume to the HR manager.  And I was asked to go for an interview during the week.

I went and the HR manager saw my resume and I had some accounting background.  The interview did not go very long and she ended up by asking me when am I available.  Unexpectedly,  I was hired! 

The pay was 15% increased and of course I agreed!   I tendered my resignation by Monday and I have less than a month serving my current company.

An old chapter have begun to close, a new chapter has begun.

Ps. Opportunity only comes once. Grab the unexpectedness's.
