I am very confused and excited today. I have been offered a job in Temasek Polytechnic(TP). Dr. Yin asked me whether I was interested. I don’t know whether I will get the job but he told me he will ask me again a few months before I graduate. Anyway I told him that I liked the environment in the Polytechnic.
He told me that the Polytechnic wanted candidates who have experienced their projects and completed their National Service or exempted from it. This means among the students who graduate from TP only a few will be eligible. My job duties will include working with development projects that are undertaken at the polytechnic. He also hinted that I will be taken to Philips along with other staff members as a part of my job. Mr. Matti had previously mentioned that TP will sent one of their staff to US next year for a demo.
This event has given me an uplift which I haven’t felt for a long time. I feel like I am better than my peers. Their sarcasm towards my predipositions and peer rejections don’t affect me anymore.
Who knows may be this is just a trick to keep me working hard in my internship this semester. Or may be I will end up in US for a product demo with philips. I don’t mind dwelling on such feel good dreams these days. Because all my life I have been a loser who experienced success just because someone was sympathetic to me. And these dreams where all I had to make me feel better.
So this is what I am going to do: I will assume I got the job with a very high salary, higher than my peers. That will show them who I am and what I am capable of. After all money is really one of the most important things in life, though most of the liars out there tell me no.
