Dear Zach,

Never had I ever thought that thing could just happened to you unexpectedly in such a good way. After I had turned down the great offer in Singapore, I returned home and started finding job again. On Tuesday, I was invited to an interview. I didn't expect much from it. I went there. And she was very happy with me. Apparently she was happy what she saw. And she asked those common interview question such as 'why', 'what', and 'why' again. She didn't try to be harsh on me.

The only tricky part was that in the beginning of the interview, she asked me to roughly describe about the job description I applied for. First thing first, I didn't read the job description at all before I applied. I just applied for the sake of applying. And I never thought they would have invited and, now, giving me a question testing me if I could utter a satisfactory answer about the job description. I applied for Branch Management Junior Executive. I cracked my head so hard to figure out the answer about what the job position all about. She was flipping through my job application while waiting for my response. If I couldn't answer this, I would be so doomed and it would be so embarrassing for not knowing what job position I applied for. It could be prostitution with the glamorous title of it. It can't be that. So I tried my luck by using the word "Branch" and started explaining. It makes sense if working in branch management, it would be all about working with all the enquiries with all the branches and give support to them. It was brief answer. And she nodded her head and said, "Good, you got it right. Partly." And then she elaborated in detail about the job scope. 

Thank God. I got it right. A plus point for me. After the interview, I was so giddy inside because I felt like I scored it well. Today, I got a call from them saying that I got hired, and I will be starting next week. I was over the moon!
