Right Material

on July 15, 2009

Apart from having the talent, an actress must also have a good material to gain her “Best Actress” award. Like actresses, we in our careers must also have a good material for us to make a significant contribution in our respective fields.

I’m not a board exam topnotcher neither am I a cum laude graduate, if transcript of records and board ratings are the only two things to be considered I am just an ordinary Certified Public Accountant but there is one thing that I am sure of, I am more than what my resume says about me and I know more than what my transcript reflects.

I am still at the early stage of my career, I still have a lot of things to learn and discover, I am a young professional in search for the right material to prove that as a CPA I can make a significant contribution in my field. I know that I have no right to complain with my present situation, including my job and maybe, I can agree with that. But I know and I have a strong feeling that I am not in the place where I want to be, I do not have the material to excel in my field. I don’t feel like I am a part of something or that I am in anyway significant, maybe I am wrong but I can also be right. I am not working solely for the money, but of course, it matters, I’ll be a hypocrite to say that it does not. I am working to practice whatever it is that I have learned, to transform my knowledge into meaningful outputs by means of making significant contribution. I want to work because I want to learn, there is so much to learn so why should we stop. But I think the most important reason why I want to work and why I want to have and fully utilize the right material once it gets into my hands is that, I don’t want to put into waste the knowledge, the talent, the abilities that God has given me. Remembering my Theology professor way back in college, “The university’s mission is to bring the church to every field of profession”. God has blessed me to become who I am, so I think I must use this not just for achieving personal excellence but to take part of my mission as a Christian.

‘Though I must admit that there are times when I am really down, that I keep on waiting for something that will never come but thank God for little reminders that things will soon be okay, that this is God’s way of preparing me to the place where He knows, I should belong and I know that in that place I will have the right material.

Apart from having a license, a CPA must also have the right material to make a significant contribution to her chosen field.

* A multi-national company which I’ve been aspiring to join called me up last monday and yesterday, the personnel is having troubles in assessing whether or not I am a fit for the position, I think she should’ve ask for my background and work experience first for her to assess. She didn’t call up today. I am on the brink of losing hope on whether or not I will be able to get a new job, my “right material”. I am on the edge of the cliff, I don’t know if He’ll catch me or He’ll give me wings. 🙂
