Phone Interview

IYA SANTOS (me, you fool)

Applicant for CSR post

blah blah blah company background, basic info blah blah blah

Me: Are you already a college graduate?
Mina: No, ma’am. I only reached up to 4th year college. I took up Nursing from Perpetual Help College of Manila.
Me: PHCM? Really?
Mina: Yes, ma’am.
Me: Nera, Nera, Nera… were you class president?
Mina: Yes, ma’am… how’d you…
Me: I think you were my student…
Mina: OMG!!! Ma’am Iya!!!!!

yada yada yada positive qualities, pronunciation exercises yada yada yada

Me: That concludes the initial interview. Congratulations, you passed! I’d like to invite you for the next step which is the verbal assessment. Would you be available tomorrow? If so, what time?
Mina: Morning ma’am, 9:00.
Me: Haha, are you sure you can make it 9? You were always late for class then…
Mina: Hahaha, I promise not to be late tomorrow, ma’am!

How astig is that? I interviewed and qualified a former student and I’m seeing her tomorrow for the VA. I’ll whack her with the IELTS module if she fails tomorrow’s exam.

I shouldn’t be worried. I taught her well. 😉

Good morning greetings are back. 🙂

Thanks Joko for posing with one of my longlostcrushies slash longlostfriends in your newfoundfriend slash newfoundcrushie’s surprise birthday par-tey. I love you forever.

I love you even if you nearly gave me a stroke last night when you gave him the phone.


Thanks Kassy for not missing this moment and taking time to send this to me right before the Zambales trip that I could not join.

Most def better than breakfast!

Abot kisame ang ngiti ko. 😀
