Hearing a good news at the beginning of the new year gives us renewed hope for the upcoming year, and that’s exactly what it did for me.
I just received news that I have been appointed as a journalist at Singapore’s national news agency, Singapore Press Holdings (SPH).
As much as I enjoy working freelance, I just couldn’t let the opportunity pass when the Editor asked me if I would be interested to try out for a full-time position. I was already writing articles for the paper on a freelance basis, and they were happy with my work. I was getting a decent pay for each story I submitted, and I learned a lot through these works that I got.
So I jumped at the opportunity. What did I have to lose anyway? If I got it, I’d be a full time journalist; if I didn’t get it, well, I still enjoyed being a freelancer 🙂
And here I am now, starting work again after a year and a half.
The New Year seems to bring a lot of opportunities. I hope the good luck will last throughout the year. I sure would like to wish all of you plenty of happiness, success and good health for the year ahead. Happy New Year! Stay happy and stay positive, work smart and allow time for play everyday and we should all have a great year ahead.
