A Job Fair Story

Been busy for the past few days. There are a lot of recruitment activities in my calendar. Work has replaced food trips and movie dates yet again.

Last Friday and Saturday, our company joined the Jobstreet Career Fair in SMX. There were almost 12,000 attendees on the 1st day. I guess around 8,000 on the second. It was exceptionally humid on the first day and my heart went out to the applicants who had to wait in line for a really loooooong time under the sun.

Inside SMX, I overheard this conversation:

Applicant 1: Gutom na gutom na ako. *eyeing the sausages at the foodstall nearby*
Applicant 2: May kanin ka ba diyan sa bag?
Applicant 1: Meron.

Waaaaaaaaaaaaahhhh!!! :,(

I really hope those 2 got hired that day. If only they had good comm skills, I would have ushered them to our booth.

PNoy passed by the job fair. I wish it made him realize that he should be doing something about the issues of unemployment and skills enhancement.

Here’s to hoping and wishing that there is indeed a better future for all of us.

PNoy’s Porsche and Doll

So our president bought a Porsche.

I’ve read so many negative comments in Twitter and in FB about this, like it’s an insensitive gesture getting this in the middle of the transpo hike or that he he bought this swanky ride for his DOM checklist. May nagsabi pa na “A Porsche, it’s a little too cramped inside to get laid. But you’ll get laid, the moment you step out.”

Weh??? I mean… come on people… What the hell is your problem? It’s a 3rd hand Porsche for crying out loud. He used his personal funds to get it. I don’t know about the truth behind the two, but I still won’t care if they’re just lies. Magrereact na ako kung private jet na ang kinuha niya.

I am still not pro-Noy, but I think that some reactions are pathetic bordering on asinine. Maka-react na lang. Tse. But ok, I gotta admit, that DOM bit was hilarious. Mwehehe.

Anyway, another Aquino-related kwento…

Our team gave away these Precious Moments collectibles as gifts last Christmas.

Say hello to the Cory Doll and the Pnoy Doll.

Ang cute-cute, noh?

Kaso lang, hindi nila at all kamukha.
