My Life in SZ (6)
The next day about 10 o'clock in the morning. I was already in the downtown areas of SZ. I could see the Diwang Building (Shun Hing Square) which was the highest over 300m at that time. The air was fresh and most of the people were in clean dresses while walking quickly, and the green belt was wide and beautiful...
I had no time to appreciate the scenery because I had no job then and made no reservation for a single room for me that night. It's interesting and a little bit ridiculous because I didn't prepare enough. If I went back to find a job again in an unfamiliar city, I should have reserved a room at least.
In order to save time, I went to a career agent asking for the latest job recruitment information, I'll prove that it was the right decision.
"Hi, young man, what job do you want?" the staff greeted me without any smile.
"I want to find a job." I answered timidly.
"Oh, no problem. Our information is updated hourly, these are effective and the latest information which is all 100% guaranteed. " the staff said quickly and present an A4 paper filled with job news. "100 yuan per information, if you are failed for the first one, come back and we will give you another two more pieces of information for free. You also can pay a monthly fee to become our premium membership... "
"This one, please!" I found an exhibition center was recruiting, a university certificate and fluent communication in English were prerequisites; relevant working experience is not necessary; a strong desire to develop in a creative field.
I want to try the job though I have no university certificate. I started listening to VOA (voice of America) both in English and Chinese program in 1989 (I was in grade 9 then, 1989 was a special and sometimes sensitive number in China). My English was not bad compared to most of my classmates.
In the next entry, I will write about how I got the job smoothly and miraculously.
